Harold Camping, who heads 66 Christian radio stations, is telling everyone that the world will end the day after tomorrow based on calculations from biblical passages. Atheists in Seattle and elsewhere are holding "rapture parties." The reasoning goes that if the prediction's true, all the Christians will fly away so that we won't have to fret over those separation of church and state issues anymore (not to mention all the free houses and cars that'll be left behind) and if they're wrong . . . we can smirk and say I told you so. All I can say is that God should have been creative and ended the world on a Monday. We'd all love a reason to skip work.
