Among the 300 spams I receive a day, I found one that suggested that the Iraqi war is an event leading to Armegeddon and the rapture. The spammer was some stupid wanna be prophet who has no qualms using some of the money he conned from others to spread the word.

This, of course, reminded me of a conversation I had with a born again fundamentalism. I asken him about the rapture. He said, and I quote:

"The rapture is a glorious event in which all the righteous ascend into heaven...bringing a paradise to earth."

I thought long and hard about this piece of profound wisdom, and I think he might be right. If all the righteous ascended into heaven, the earth would be a much nicer place. I hope they take their guns, mines, dialectics, monopolies, missionaries and other tools of oppression with them.
