Apocalypse... Now!

So, in case you haven’t heard, tomorrow (May 21, 2011) marks the beginning of the end of the world… the Rapture. For those unfamiliar with what the Rapture is, it marks when Jesus returns to Earth selecting the chosen and leaving behind the heathens to take from this world to the Heavens to prepare them for the final battle between good and evil.

Well, this guy has determined via a math problem via information he uncovered in the bible that the Rapture takes place tomorrow, starting a 5-month series of events leading to judgment day. I’d get into the math problem if I could be bothered opening links anywhere on the web right now, but I’d rather just type this up.

Before we get started going any further into why this is or isn’t legitimate, I want to first note that mankind has failed hundreds, if not thousands, of times trying to determine when the end will come. We’re still awaiting the Mayan prediction of December 21, 2012… an event I share the same beliefs I’m about to reveal about THIS event. On top of the numerous failures, this guy HAS been wrong twice once before.

Okay, so via his math by some word problem hidden in the bible, he’s come to this conclusion. On top of that, he also spent his life savings of $140,000 on advertisement. When asked, he said the money doesn’t mean anything after the world ends. When asked about his math though, he was quick to plug his book. In which he explained every step of this word problem he solved. Well, what better way to show you don’t care about money than to tell people they have to BUY your book within 4 days to find proof of the math problem which unlocked the date of the Rapture.

I also love the way he broke down the bible so intricately that he failed to look at anything meaningful, such as quotes from Jesus himself. Jesus said that nobody will know the day or the hour when the Rapture will come… I’ll take Jesus’ word first. But let’s imagine for a second this guy is on to something and the guy who walked on water is wrong… God doesn’t let anyone know when the end is going to come solely because he wants you to treat each moment you spend on this planet as if it is your final judgment under his eyes.

Now, think of all the mothers and fathers who will ultimately spend these final moments hoping they’re saved; poor little children whose faith can be shaken, or lost. I envision a 9 year old child sitting there wondering if they’re damned if there is no Rapture. If there isn’t Rapture, are we ALL damned?

Once again, I’ll take Jesus’ word for it when he says none of us will know. Unless this guy is Jesus himself? Hmm…

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
