I was going to say that we're about 19.5 hours into the 21st here and so far, things seem quite normal. But then I read point 3, and realised we probably don't count on this side of the world.

I suppose I'll have to wait and see if I wake up tomorrow.

Final, incontrovertible proof that God is an Englishman: opening bat, bowls a few off-breaks. ;-)

Maybe we all get an extra day to repent, cos God misplaced his (her?) diary?

Well, it's the 22nd here and things still seem normal, so God can't have got with the programme yet. I suppose there's a few hours left in the US, though.

Thanks for a great read, Revd.

Thank you. :-)

I enjoyed writing it. I love a mental challenge while I'm hoovering.

Everything is still in one piece here as well.. also, predict world endings on Monday's please because usually those aren't all that popular anyway so why not blow up the planet on that day? ;)

Great point. You should be on God's PR team. Next time, schedule the Rapture for a wet Monday morning in February, and get the popular vote!

this might just be the best post written on the 'rapture'! I can only feel for the people who staunchly believed that they would be taken away from this world on may 21...

Thank you for the compliment.

I too feel sorry for those who were taken in. But they made their choice, and a wise man once said:

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

Unfortunately, that was Buddha. ;-)

OK, now on to Dec 21, 2012! ;)

What? before Christmas? ;) bad PR... really... ;)

But think of the effort saved with not bothering to buy prezzies next year!

What killjoys the Mayans were. Jan 2, 2013 would have been better.

To be fair, the Mayans weren't big on Christmas, never having even heard of Jesus. And since most of their festivals were celebrated with human sacrifices, you can imagine they might be motivated to miss one. Mind, any culture that invents a form of football (soccer) that involved sacrificing all the losing team gets my vote.
