You seem confident, but something you may want to consider: There is currently a spirit working among all men, believers or not, that restrains evil
in the world. This spirit also saves your butt every time you are about to make a royal fool of yourself at work, at home and pretty much anywhere
you are. That little thing called synchronicity that keeps telling you when you are about to fail--that's the Holy Spirit. We all benefit from that
still small voice that constantly tells us the best way to proceed. We don't always listen. Some of us listen more than others. Since we take
ourselves with us everywhere we go, the spirit we listen to defines the path we take as we travel in the garden. In Genesis, we see that God was
walking in the garden when He came across Adam and Eve. Notice that He was still walking in the garden with them, despite the fact that they had
walked away. This will be the case until judgement day when God takes a rest from his walking.
The point is easy to see. When the rapture happens, the restraining of the Holy Spirit moves on from this place. Hell comes to man by his own
choice. Good luck when we are gone. I pray you wake before this happens.
2 Thessalonians 2
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at

4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing
himself that he is God.
5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his
9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Could you please get this whole Rapture thing going already? All these Christians seem really eager to go, and to be honest, the rest of us are all
even more eager to SEE them go.
While you're at it, if you could take the rest of the Abrahamic bunch aswell we'd all be very appreciative. Also if it's not too much trouble.
Could you take the Scientology crowd aswell? Now I know what you're thinking. "Why the in the name of me would I want those crackpots hanging out at
my place"? You could just drop them off on some other rock along the way. I'm sure they would like that... Or just jettison them into the cold
vacuum of space. Whatever works best for you.
Once you have taken all your faithful fans to whatever final destination you have in mind, the rest of us can get on with cleaning up the mess they
made and carrying on with our evolution as a species, unimpeded by the distractions they caused.
The (hopefully) soon to be left behind.
