Another fine example of Poe's law. I think it is equally likely of being real as being a parody.

If the guy is going to make money on this, maybe we should all use our parodies of religion to make money. I think I'm going to start Faith Verification Services as a real business since no one can tell the difference between a real Christian business and a parody of one.

Also, didn't they interview a guy like this in Flemming's movie?  http://www.raptureletters.com/

 

So not only is it nuts, it's not original!

Well, the other thread about

Well, the other thread about this is in FTA so it is good having one for theists to respond to. I wonder what happens if some non-rapture event happens that prevents enough employess from signing in for a week that would cause the emails to go out - say the building burns down or a few of them are in a serious car accident together. Where do they even get that shit from? As far as I know the idea of "the rapture" isn't even in the Bible!

But of course it's from the Bible. Otherwise, why would they believe in it?

If I had absolutely no personal ethics and no secular political consciousness, I could get SO DAMNED RICH ripping these theists off with scams based on prophecies that will NEVER COME TRUE!!! Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Seriously though, this is hilarious.

I always like to ask these

I always like to ask these Rapture freaks how, exactly, they know the Rapture has not already happened and that they themselves have been left behind with us heathens.

 

Watch them twist in knots for that one. It's quite fun.
