Sure .. Why worry about the environment or the debt that our children will have to pay off, or nuclear war .. The rapture is comming ! I seriously wonder whether or not Bush's animosity towards scientists and some of his other policy decisions was due to this belief. I think folks that take the rapture seriously shold be banned from high public office. We need folks in office that want to make the world here and now a better place rather than trying to fit into some script that may or may not ever happen or may happen 10,000 years from now, or may have already happend. This issue is similar to Muslims willing to blow themselves up in return for the many virgins they will receive in the afterlife. Folks should life their life to make the world a better place here and now because none of us knows what awaits on the other side.
