Turns out, God loves premature cynicism, absurdity, crippling insecurity masked in mostly bad jokes, and 12 year old boy humor, and thus yesterday at 6 pm, I was sucked by God's Hoover to heaven, just like that radio charlatan predicted. What he didn't predict, however, is how it really is up here.
"As the Christian Science Monitor reports, Robertson has said that God told him about pending disasters on numerous occasions — including a West Coast tsunami in 2006, and a terrorist attack in 2007 — neither of which occurred.

Okay, so maybe not after. But even if the world is still spinning on Sunday, it's always good to have an idea of what the apocalypse might look like.
Some people think the world is going to end tomorrow. This seems like it would be really scary. So why is the apocalypse so popular?
Most of us are getting a good chuckle out of a fringe cult's claim that tomorrow is Judgment Day. It becomes a lot less amusing when you're mom starts planning for the rapture, and tells you it's too bad you won't be coming with her.
