Excellent – if not obvious – comment made over on Creative Minority Report pointing out that despite the odd media interest in the idea of the Rapture (think Harold Camping) it is only believed by an infinitesimal percentage of Christians.
In case you don’t know what the Rapture is; it’s the day when lucky winners will be swept up into the clouds in the nude, whilst losers will be tormented here on earth by an angry god.
The official academic term for the study of Rapture science is “Rapture Theology” or more commonly “Raptureology”.
I made up those terms by the way.
In my opinion Rapture theory will never get off the ground……
