Those who believe we are in the End Times

Israel and Lebanon - do I have anything intelligent to add? No. 'It's bad'. There is wrong on both sides but Israel is doing more wrong on this occasion. Nobody will come out better off from this, and there is some risk that we will all end up much worse. My guess is that it will fizzle out before Iran and Syria start really flexing their muscles. Hope so, because if the big boys start playing we are all in danger.

My heart sinks to read these 'Rapture' web sites saying 'it's all so exciting, the end times have begun'. All the posts are illustrated with a bizarre concatenation of smileys.

I too am soooo excited!! I get goose bumps, literally, when I watch what's going on in the M.E.!! And Watcherboy, you were so right when saying it was quite a day yesterday, in the world news, and I add in local news here in the Boston area!! Tunnel ceiling collapsed on a car and killed a woman of faith, and we had the most terrifying storms I have ever seen here!! But, yes, Ohappyday, like in your screen name , it is most indeed a time to be happy and excited, right there with ya!!

Ah, that particular message thread has been taken down, so I link above to a discussion of it. The Rapture message board in general is here and discussions of end-times events here. Anyway, I would think that the opinions of a few loonies, no matter how offensive, wouldn't matter, except I think they are setting foreign policy for the US now, and my country is being dragged along with that, and so it affects me. I imagine people in Islamic countries feel the same about the loonies on their side.

ETA - I know my typing is bad, but the spelling on these sites is dreadful: 'what if damascus is destroyed as part of the gog/magog invasion ?... a Nuke to be launched from Demascus at Isreal... Isreal can justify Nuking Demascus and wiping it off the face of the earth.' I know, I should be more concerned with the suggestion that Damascus should be destroyed than with the spelling.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
