The Book of Revelations was 'written' by a known nutter..

Don't you know anything? Aliens are a) male, b) small, and c) GREEN!

Even the church was very reluctant to canonize the Book of Revelations. The writer is either batshit crazy or high on hallucingenic drugs or both.

Where should I look up the Rapture?
It doesn't seem to be in any Bible I own.
2/23/2009 8:20:54 PM
That makes me very, very angry.
2/23/2009 8:29:58 PM
[Also look up the word Rapture- ]
The word Rapture does not appear in the bible. Or atleast not in the KJV. Try again.

"Where should I look up the Rapture?
It doesn't seem to be in any Bible I own."
"For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."
-- 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Doesn't contain the word "Rapture", but it's where the idea comes from. Of course, there's no mention as to whether this event is supposed to happen before, during, or after the Tribulation described in Revelation.

That's one of my favorite Scripture passages. I like to ask fundies who the "we" are.

Actually UFO's are part of a promotional plan by one of the big energy companies. You'll see fewer of them for a time because advertising budgets have been cut way back.

Popular Mechanics? You're fucking kidding me.
2/23/2009 9:14:42 PM
A genuine nutter.
2/23/2009 9:49:15 PM
Yes, I know the idea comes from 1 Thessalonians ;-)
But that's just one interpretation, I mean, the Jehovah's Witnesses use the same verses to claim Jesus and the Archangel Michael were one and the same.

I think Satan is using UFO's to spread the gay agenda, while tricking us into believing in evolution.
2/23/2009 10:32:32 PM
a mind far far away
I just noticed something. I haven't seen a misplaced, or displaced, question mark in awhile. And if you look up "rapture" in a bible dictionary, you'll notice that the word isn't there. In the Latin Vulgate, the word is there, once, and doesn't mean what you think it does.

Do some research. UFO's have been around for centuries.
2/23/2009 11:23:05 PM
Ben Stein is laughing at you, because when he says "intelligent designer" he means Jesus and angels..not flying saucers.

I believe in UFO's but a different view
it could be...?, or...it also could be...not assuming
Grow a fucking spine. Make a cosmic prediction and stick with it!
until they show their true colors
How do you know when the colors are true?
2/24/2009 3:18:10 AM
You mean angels don't have Google Earth?
2/24/2009 12:27:08 PM
Yes, and the Pyramids weren't made by the ancient Egyptians, but by the Goa'uld.
Erich von Daniken reader, much?
Going OT: Whilst UFOs are fine & all, 'Flying Saucers'?! I mean, come ON! That's SO 1950s. The aliens may have superior intelligence & technologies, but their sense of aesthetics isn't worth the sweat off my bollocks. Not until ol' ET appears in a Valdore-class Warbird (I creamed at the sight of those new Romulan ships in "ST:Nemesis").

The 'heaven' of the Bible is a solid hemisphere. It can be reached by building a tower. It has water above it which leaks through when it rains.
It is inhabited by 'Angels', a word which means 'messengers'; glowing man-shaped creatures which scoot across the sky on their Boss's bidding. Strange, everyone can see meteors shoot across the sky, and astigmatism gives them a vaguely man-shaped appearance, but the Bible doesn't mention them at all. Unless, of course, the 'supernatural heavenly angelic spiritual beings' of the Bible actually ARE those lumps of falling rock.
If Heaven really is another dimension, why did Jesus go up to the sky?
