I heard a suggestion that if the rapture occurs, it would be explained away as mass alien abductions. However I laughed when I saw this post that the rapture occurs in 4 days. That tells you how seriously I believe it will happen in 4 days.
It's nice to read something amusing every so often. hmmm, stocks should take a nose dive if this actually happened. I can imagine for those still
here, the event would be worse than 911 by a long shot especially if millions of people were abducted. Just think if the news media said the aliens
announced we were food and the people they took should suffice for now. However they may return when they need to restock.
I can imagine fear and panic from such an announcement. The UN and other government agencies may try to block any such signal. This reminds me of a
book I read. It took a small street gang in New York to show the aliens a thing or two and defeat them. Of course those aliens were only renegade
aliens in one ship playing practical jokes on planets by announcing the planets imminent destruction by a fleet that would never appear.
The outlaw aliens enjoyed the mayhem unleashed by their planet wide announcements.
If anyone seriously believed a rapture announcement, I could imagine such an announcement akin to shouting fire in a movie cinema.
