Apparently God is going to call all His believers to Eternal Paradise tomorrow and leave all the gays, Jews, Muslims, Agnostics, Atheists, People who still believe in Him but from a different angle and pets behind as the world burns and chaos reigns and all Hell literally breaks loose. And it will look like this, according to a quick search on Google at any rate. Which, I think, every one will agree is a bad thing. Especially for all of the pets. But if the world was to come to a God based fire assisted end what would we do. Those, obviously not destined for eternal bliss. I don’t think it would change all that much.
However, if and when the Rapture does not actually happen AS IT WILL NOT ACTUALLY HAPPEN then will all the Monotheists, stop? Will they admit that religion is as much a fiction as Harry Potter and that all the sects and versions are just different Houses like Hufflepuff and Griffindor?
In Harry Potter all the houses are under the main umbrella of Hogwarts. Hogwarts is God (under his various aliases). All the houses are dependent on Hogwarts (it would also serve as decent metaphor for the Universe, but I digress). Hogwarts was created to teach Magic and Witchcraft much in the same way God created the world to teach humans and to house animals, but since God is everything – He is Hogwarts. All the staff worked all right together for a bit (Earth’s Pre-History) and then they became divided in to the four houses, or Major Abrahamic religions. They are essentially the same but differ in their approach to teaching muggles and their attitudes towards the gays. Plus both religion and Harry Potter are made up and excellent box office.
Also, if the Christians knew the Rapture would be this year why didn’t they send some Save The Date cards.
So Sunday morning I will have a brew and not be in Hell.
