The rapture is nigh

Or not.

The one thing that I find compelling about all this rapture talk is that it represents one of those rare occasions where some subset of fanatical religious types make concrete statements about something that’s actually quantifiable.

Seems like a dangerous activity, though. It must wear on the credibility of a religious leader when such concrete predictions based on “credible information provided in the bible”. And they must know that they’re putting their credibility on the line, which makes me think they must really believe it.

Scary.
