Not Judgment Day

    No earthquakes, no rapture, just a pretty normal Saturday where I took my kids to the doctor, then shopping at the mall. The spring semi-formal is next week and if the world in fact did not end, my kids needed party clothes. When we were coming home as our local deadline approached, my oldest son mused, "We'll be dead in 20 minutes!" Well, we made it home, no earthquakes, no ascending to the heavens either. Guess it's a good thing I got the shopping done since life seems to be proceeding as usual here.
    Harold Camping spent 100 million dollars on this, his heartfelt belief...and I do think he believed he was right. Even so, it breaks my heart to think of how many kids in orphanages could have been given a better life with that money. In my humble opinion, helping kids in need would be a far better legacy.

I was just discussing with this with my colleagues during coffee break. Supposing that the whole Rapture theology is not Biblically unfounded, what if it did happen, just G-d didn't find anyone to rapture?
