Apparently, even though Christians can’t know when the end of the world is coming, they know exactly when the end of the world is coming: May 21, 2011. Or, well, that’s when Christ comes back and everyone gets raptured (not in a Blondie sort of way – unless the Man from Mars was code for Jesus.)

As an atheist, I’m going to have to stay and fight demons after the rapture. And fortunately for me, Marie Exley of Colorado Springs has bought a number of bus bench ads letting me know just how long I have to sharpen some stakes and find some fireproof armor. I’m so glad Marie is looking out for me. I’ve been burned before.
