In case you haven't heard, tomorrow is the day. Thats it. The beginning of the end is at 6:00pm and the almighty evidently cares a great deal about our human conventions because he is going to observer the local timezones. Now I understand that many people truly believe in the concept of the rapture, and I respect that. What I find amazing is that anyone thinks they could legitimately predict the time of said event based on some pretty funcky metaphorical math, and actually make life choices based on that prediction. One of the most entertaining things that have come out of this are the after the rapture pet care programs that have arisen. http://www.aftertherapturepetcare.com/ is one such service. Exploitive.. perhaps.. brilliant.. absolutely. However I think they all have it a little backwards. You see if any living creature deserves to go into a heavenly afterlife, it is dogs. I'm just not sure how many slots there will be left for the rest of us. What I predict is that if a rapture occurs, thousands and thousands of dogs will suddenly disappear at 6:00 pm and the rest of us will be left holding their poop bags. So hug your hounds tonight, who knows what tomorrow will bring.
