Yep, things are going to get even more bizarro as the uber-xtians bang their drums waiting for the antichrist to step up to the plate on June 6, 2006.
Hate to rain on their parade, but accourding to the experts he's already here (George (six letters) Walker (six letters) Bush Jr (six letters), the president whose name adds up to 666) Of course I have people who will argue the fact with me. Rachel seems to thing the antichrist is not a person, but an organization (F is the sixth letter of the alphabet, O is the 15th letter (1+5=6) and X is the 24th letter (2+4=6) ) I countered that with the correct spelling Faux, but she wasn't buying the arguement.
And then there is the mild panic griping women due in early June, seems someone with fecal matter for brains has suggested that the antichrist will be BORN on June 6th. Sending a few hormonally, bloated and otherwise stressed pregnant women into a state and a half worrying about giving birth to the OMEN
However, at least a few marketing geniuses are making the most of it. in America the marketing of the apocalypse is well under way. Slayer, one of America’s most popular heavy metal rock groups, will start its Unholy Alliance tour, subtitled Preaching to the Perverted….
I'm willing to bet some end-timer xtian will somehow manage to blame the Da Vinci Code and claim either Tom Hanks or Ron Howard as either the anti-christ or the 'summoner' (or whatever they would call it) for the antichrist. Wonder what the 'rapture index' will be for that day?
What about you? Have any predictions to banter about? Personally I'm trying to think up a good prank to play that day and make the fundies wet their trousers....wasn't there something about helium filled blow up dolls getting loose from a pick up truck and floatin skyward, making some yutz think the rapture had come? Think we could manage that in a few cities across the country?
