View Full Version : Atheist preparing for the end of days - cashing in on the apocolypse

NEW YORK. A South Florida atheist is reaping the rewards of the coming apocalypse, charging “True Believers” for mail delivery to loved ones who get left behind in the aftermath of the “Day of Reckoning.”
Joshua Witter promises customers that he will suffer the plagues of Armageddon all in the name of a successful post-apocalyptic postal delivery.
“It’s too late for me,” Witter says. But, he adds, “I’ll do my best come hell or high water to deliver those letters.”

Here is the website..
They guarantee they will hand deliver a message to your loved ones after you are raptured into heaven, they know they will be around to do it because they are atheists :)
Pure genius, great business plan: take orders and money, never need to actually deliver on the promise.

Most people would probably think this was morally wrong or cruel or whatever but I personally think good on him. People are so selfish anyway, may as well take advantage of the stupid and the gullible

An atheist cashing in on a Christian's afterlife . . . 10 points for the ultimate irony!
An enterprising atheist organisation could make a motza on this! :rolleyes:

Brilliant! is there a list of local Rapturists I can contact with a similar offer? Or is this a purely USA thing?

We are legion.
Sort of like the cat that crept into the crypt, crapped and crept out again.

I think I get it... you are 'legion' - in other words an unclean spirit, and the vicar...Steve is married to Nonie, who is spectacularly beautiful on the inside and on the outside! Steve loves lots of things - hanging his congregation and youth leaders who are just awesome ! He also loves shooting feral pigs from the back of his ute, and preaching the gospel about Jesus so that people can get to know him before they meet him "so that they can grow in him while they're still here!" That suggest to me they will become parasitic demons, presumably to be cast out and into the guts of swine and then.... oh dear, it's all getting a bit complicated.
Can't we just play Mah Jong?:confused:

Polls in the US show that as many as 95% of all people in the US believe they will survive their own death and go on to another existence with the Lord.
This guy has just done his market research.
If they truly believe this why are they so upset when they are told they are going to die?
Shouldn't they be ecstatic they are going to the promised land and immortality?
