This nice kid at work, who knows I'm an atheist, came up to me the other night, a little freaked out.
"Rudy is f-ing nuts!", he tells me.
Rudy had been talking to Kid about The End Times; how it's happening
right now (just look at the news!) and the anti-christ, who will come
from England, is roaming the world right now. The End is near. Rudy
says he's preparing with prayer and penance. Penance! Like his job
isn't punishment enough! I wonder what else he does for penance?
Rudy is a soft-spoken man, kind and respectful. He speaks several languages.
He's a painter who's pointillism works have shown in local galleries.
He makes wine and is planning a trip to France to study wine making. I
kind of admired the guy. But now I feel sad for him, knowing what a
burden he carries. The End Of The World! Poor Rudy.

Oh, that sounds horrible! I'd have a hard time dealing with that.

Oh yes, she is a born again christian, and sings it from the rooftops, unfortunately whilst sitting in close proximity to me. All other religions are false and THEIR followers are the ones that will burn!

I'm reading "Evolution Vs. Creationism" right now. You wouldn't believe some of the comments I get from co-workers who notice me reading it. One of the girls that I share a cube with was laughing when I explained John Smith and Mormonism to her, especially the part about Jesus making it with Mary. However, when I mentioned that if you believe in the trinity, I guess it's true that Jesus had relations with his mom. She said, "Shut up, Jaime!"

I don't think he's a threat, but you never know! There are so many people out there that think like that, with that cloud of doom over their heads. Sad way to live.
He asked the kid, "Aren't you scared?" The Kid said "naw". Smart kid.

Good point John.
The prudent thing to do is keep an eye on Rudy - particularly if he has any stressers in his life.
