How can the rapture work in hell. When Jesus was 40 days and 40 nights in the barren wastes he was temted by Satan who said "follow me and all my kingdom shall be yours" in saying this he gestured with his arm outstretched to indicate the earth. So in reality we on earth are already in hell. How does that compute. I say that if there is no rapture on 21 may ALL religeous prophesies should be forthwith banned from the internet for their fear mongering and downright doom and gloom.

And you're quite sure, that this is not one of the many, many fantasies religionists endlessly turn up with?

Is this firsthand experienced information; spoonfed indoctrination by a pastor; based on any reliable source or still another fantasy?

But it will be a consolation, that the alone-ness will exclude christian missionaries from pestering you.

Compred to the Jahveh of the bible, Satan can't be much worse. And in any case I believe you've gotten your demonology somewhat confused. Why should especially Satan get the job of 'tormenting'. His job-description is to 'tempt'.
Quote: [" Right now, earth is satan's kingdom... but it won't be forever."]
Agreed. As soon as we get rid of the last remnants of the extremist christianities, things will quick be more honky-dory'ish.
