Your May 21st Rapture Party

#1  Postby Bolero » Apr 26, 2011 5:41 am

(Fenrir gave me this idea at a meetup in Brisbane on the weekend, so full credit to him.)

Various Atheist Foundation Australia contingents are having massive Rapture Parties this coming May 21st, in response to This Bullshit. There'll be ones in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth (not sure about others? DanDare? Fenrir? Goldenmane? Little help?), and undoubtedly there's one in a city near YOU.

So let us know if you're having a Rapture get-together, and we can all watch them get taken away at the same time!

Brisbane AFA get-together:

JC Slaughter Falls picnic area, Mt Coot-tha
1pm
BYO BBQ stuff, drinks, chair/blanket, etc.

Can't be sure when The Rapture is happening exactly, so we'll have to pull an all-afternoon/night-er.

I think that a party is the wrong way to go about it. I think that all atheists should organise a holiday to some extremely remote are (congo jungle, central Australia, Antartica etc). However, before leaving, they should leave small piles of clothes lying around in the streets. That way, when May 21st rolls around all of the fundies can enjoy the prospect that it was the atheists that got raptured into heaven and they were left behind.

Hmmm, not a bad idea! :plot:

But the big question is which party are you going to, Croc G?

As mentioned in the other thread, our unofficial scifi club ÄKSY is going to have a modest pub crawl in Turku, Finland on the 21st. It's a bit coincidental tho since we try to have one every Spring, but the date was still set by this next Rapture (Prayze Jebus! Hallelujahgobble!). We are blessed with being in the same time zone as Jerusalem so the timing will not be an issue :pray:

Oops! :oops:

Didn't see the other thread. Well, that's what I get for being absent for a couple of weeks.

It doesn't matter much since this is about specific events and that one's more about various Raptures (Rapturings?) in general... I prophesize that May 21st is not the last Rapture date we must fear/expect :)

This has already been discussed. As no time zone appears to have been specified we may have to extend our event over the entire 24 hours to be sure we don't miss it. It's a tough call but some things just need to be done and I for one am prepared to sacrifice my liver if that is what it takes. :drunk:

Wasn't there a video or summat saying it's Jerusalem time? :scratch:

Or maybe that was for the 2010 Rapture. That was definitely to start at sundown in Jerusalem. So I think we'll be provisionally going with that so the big moment is gonna be at 19:32. If Gawd decides to act up and not do it then I'm going to be very displeased with him :naughty:
