Left Behind Prank

Left Behind Prank

Except for having concern for the psychological well-being of those who believe in this May 21st thing, I do not have much of an interest in it.  Admittedly, I really do not understand all the Rapture Parties either, especially the atheist Rapture Parties, but Hemant Mehta posted an interesting video.  It is actually a prank played on a Rapture believing fundie, called "Punk'n the Fundie."

Now normally I would not approve, especially if the person truly believe the fantasy, because it could cause them some serious emotional problems, but this on turned out well, although for a minute I was not sure if it would.  I had my doubts and thought this could be a bad thing.

The girl is a true Evangelical Fundamentalist who love the Left Behind series.  I don't know.  Maybe she is so into it that she has read all the book, seen the movie, and has the video game.

Anyway, here is the video.:

Here's an interesting side note: I looked up "rapture, Ceiling Cat" to find the picture for this post.  *Mriana looks both ways, up, and down, then whispers, "Amber's and my FFRF banner is in the mix."  *Freud's voice:  Very interesting.*  *Cue Twilight Zone music*


This just in through the God Discussion ticker tape.

So there you have it. There will be no Rapture or Apocalypse. It's all been cancelled. We now return you to your daily lives.  Now go out and spend some time with your families.

  • honestly Mriana i share your feelings about this rapture hullabaloo, it is difficult to imagine why so many people are so interested in following the news–left to me to decide unilaterally we'd be considering more serious news…

    but on second thoughts i suppose it really affords an opportunity to measure the popular mood…i have been asking myself serious questions on the psycho-sociological implications of widespread group death neurosis that masquerades as religiosity. Someone was so upset about my spoofing the may 21 rapture that he/she simply wrote: You're disgusting!

    • Yes, they really believe it. They believe it will happen as much as we believe the sun will rise again on the 22 and nothing will happen. They believe it as much as I would love Star Trek to be real. It is the God Delusion in full force. I only hope the God Virus isn't spreading though, because God is the Failed Hypothesis. lol Sorry. I have a million of them.

      You spoofed it? Darn. I was going to do my own LOLCats version of it. You beat me to spoofing it and I missed it.

    I'm going to be on the look out for a Ferrari "left behind."
    My eye doctor is going to "make confession" this week; just in case. WOW! The guy I trust with my vision. This is almost as disturbing as if my hairdresser suddenly told me she was blind. (I'm a hairdresser, and I'm bald).

  • Oh my gosh, this was too funny.
