Raptures Are Extinct!

Disclaimer: The title of this post is just a witty punchline due to the following joke… not to be confused with me saying the Rapture will never happen.

“Harold Camping is an idiot, talking about this Rapture. Didn’t those things go extinct millions of years ago?”

So, Harold Camping was wrong. Gee, haven’t we heard that one before? Thanks to social networking faster than the speed of light, Camping’s “prediction” spread like the fireball he was predicting would consume the Earth. We are as much at fault for enabling this as the pamphlet passers who drove around the nation polluting the atmosphere with CO2 much the same way they polluted our minds with this false prophecy. The fact they caused so much damage to our air probably contributed to our mental state of considering some legitimacy to the stupidity they were spewing.

May 21st came and went like any other day… and Camping has yet to go on record to explain what went wrong. As I noted before the time of the predicted events, his excuses would go something like:

“I was incorrect in my math, I must have missed something.”

“The entire world must be damned.”

“There is no God.”

He might have something else up his sleeve for an explanation, but I can’t fathom he’d admit he was wrong and that Jesus was right when he said no man, not even himself, nor any angel in Heaven, only the Father would know the day and the hour. He couldn’t admit that last time; he won’t admit it this time. Camping’s Bible Prophecy is ludicrous solely because the man doesn’t grasp that the bible is filled with direct quotes from Jesus himself. Jesus never lied, that’s a trait of evil. Don’t take Jesus quotes for lies… man will NOT know when the Rapture approaches, and predicting an end time and getting people all worked up serves no purpose but to create fear and terror.

God wants Judgment Day to approach “like a thief in the night” so that humanity has no chance at trying to deceive God with false regret for their actions. Every criminal pleads innocent… or so I’ve been told. The fact of the matter is, we’re not meant to know, for our own good. People got worked up and panicked, and had anything seemed to be working in Camping’s favor the other night, chaos would have ensued.

One of the largest problems I had with Camping’s prediction is this idea that God won’t save people of other religious beliefs as though he tailored history solely for Christianity to arise and be the chosen people. Wrong, God made Jesus a Jew, first and foremost… Jesus AS a Jew was accepted by God. So Judaism obviously gets an opportunity as well. But let us not forget either, the Muslims who are prevalent in the Bible… and they were not an evil people. Catholicism pretty much fathered Christianity, so Catholics need be considered as well.

But Camping also predicted only 200 million souls past and present, dead and alive, would be saved. That’s less than a third of the population. I’m of the belief that there are far more than 200 million Christians alone throughout history who are worthy of eternity; surely God doesn’t just draw from a hat and leave the worthy behind to suffer by the heathens. That leaves people wondering if they’ve done enough to be saved, and if they’ll be chosen over the next person. Then consider this fact: the planet Earth in comparison to the entire universe, isn’t even comparable to a grain of sand in comparison to the planet Earth… yet Earth could house billions of people at any given time, along with the buried of however many billions have lived here, not to mention the hundreds of billions of other creatures we’ve got on our planet. So in eternity, God could not house more than 200 million souls from throughout all of history? Eternity wouldn’t exceed the size of the universe?

Harold Camping is a heretic, a false prophet, and we should treat him as such. Live your lives, people! Try and do right by God, but don’t worry about the imminent end, or impending doom.

Anyways, I need a haircut!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
