My kid is very edgy about this whole rapture thing, even though I keep telling her it's ridiculous.
OTOH, a couple of my students, even though they live in Arkansas (rapture central) have never heard of the idea of the rapture.
So here's a link! In case you care. Everything you wanted to know about the Rapture.
Which, as I keep telling my panicked child, is a totally invented piece of bullshit.
(Yeah, like other bits of religion aren't, I know. I am just more exasperated with this one because of how much it's scaring my kid. What a tool this guy Harold Camping is. Makes me wish for an actual God just so he would have to account to him someday.)
Fun fact! Rapture and rape come from the same Latin root! Rapio, rapere: to seize or to snatch away, to take for your own.
