I have something to say about this rapture bullshit. I wrote Mirror Reversal before the End Of Faith and was the first to talk about the danger of the "endmeme."
It's the blief that Christ or the Holy Prophet are coming to destroy the world. All the major religions believe in Judgment Day.
The Bible is full of self-fulfilling prophecies. Hitler invaded Russia because he thought it was destiny.
What worries me is that the endmeme carriers will destroy the world, througt GW or nuclear war, and then say, "I told you so, it's the will of God."
It was put to waste four billion years of life on the planet.
