If theists get raptured, then that means they were right all along, which means anyone left behind is about to be SOL on an epic scale.

Or, ya know, they were only partially right, and we heathens will just be left in peace.

Or maybe we would have our own wars?

That would actually be interesting, the people in heaven would need something to watch right? Everyone knows reality T.V. is the epitome of entertainment.

Reminds of an incident.
My girlfriend sliced open a tomato- and lo and behold-there it was!
A life like portrait of a woman was inside the tomato.

She exclaimed OMG! Its the Virgin Marry.

But the portrait had a familiar look to me, so I cracked open an excyclopeadia,.
Sure enought the face in the tomato was virtually identiacal to that of a photo in the book of author Ayn Rand!

My girlfriend asked who Ayn Rand was. I replied that she was kinda the Atheist equivalent of the Virgin Mary.

News got out. Before long long lines of thousands of Atheists were lining up in front of the house to see the "miracle tomato" to restore their lack of faith. Several people fell on the ground and broke out into tongues.

But as the days wore one and the crowds waiting in line got bigger it started to get ugly. People started to breakout into fights because "the god I dont believe in is better than the god you dont believe in".

So we were forced to remove the object of adoration and just eat it.

I wonder if this idea came from the Bible or somewhere else?

Ahh, one of my favorite daydreams. That everyone (with perhaps a handful of exceptions) has left the planet, and I'm free to roam and play. Until the wolves, cougars, and feralized pets take over, at least. Or until I break a limb and die from infection or something.

He may actually be referring to the fact that the rapture is mentioned nowhere in the Bible. It is a belief structured around the idea of "two (people) will be (present tense verb) in (place), one will be taken, and the other left" and the speed and stealth at which the return of the Lord is supposed to come.

But I doubt it.

If the Christians get raptured then the atheists will get to have their way with the world, but if that happens, be careful what you wish for because you just might get it! :wink:

The only way they'll be raptured is if they rapture themselves Jonestown style.
