Dang it. I was really looking forward to doing battle with legions of zombies for the next five months.
My hopes were lifted ever so slightly when some thunderstorms rolled through this afternoon, but they were meager by apocalyptic standards. No reports of any mayhem beyond the usual and customary from the rest of the planet either.
It's not too hard to imagine a global earthquake, actually. It could be a chain reaction of plate tectonics. We've seen more and more earthquakes in recent years. Bigger ones too. This is thought to be due to some tectonic shifting as a result of polar ice cap melting and releasing potential energy stored in the crust of the earth under the ice. The "Ring of Fire" tectonic plates are all connected and a major quake in one place could trigger more in other places.
But I think it is safe to say, this Rapture was a false alarm. Either that or very few people made the cut. It's kind of too bad. It seemed like it would be a win-win situation. The chosen get taken away to paradise and the remaining humans on earth could then go about creating a Heaven on Earth without all the violence, fear, and hatred put forth by a lot of the religious types.
On the other hand, I would definitely pity God for having to put up with some of those people for all of eternity.
