Irony alert: The unusually chilly global-warming summitCancun is hosting the U.N. conference on man-made climate change — amid record cold temperatures. Repeat after me, weather is not climate. (Thanks to danjite.)

Billboards advertise the coming RaptureBillboards in Nashville and eight other cities around the United States advertise The Rapture, saying it will take place on May 21, 2011. This would be hilarious if it weren't something so many people take seriously. And why is this particular calculation any less mistaken than the other 87,000 times the date of the Rapture has been calculated?

Now to see if the person toting the coming Rapture has been taking donations of one kind or another and scampers for the southern hemisphere on May 22nd.

Billboards advertise the coming Rapture And this is the basis from which some of the more right wing nutters are GOVERNING. No wonder they don't care about Climate Change - or anything beyond next year.

I for one am hoping THIS time the Rapture actually takes so we can be rid of these freaks once and for all.

So Pirates of the Carribean 4 opens on the 20th, and the next day is the Rapture. Coincidence? I think not ...

I'm no Bible expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I seem to recall something about "But of that day and hour knoweth no one", Rapture-wise. Wouldn't you think self-professed Christians would know that?
