A new theory on "The Rapture"
After looking around Conservapedia, I've come up with a new theory about the Rapture: It's what will occur when the alternate reality the Bush administration and its supporters have been constructing out of pure bullshit for the last decade or so finally becomes big enough for them to move there physically.
My only worry about this is that they may decide to nuke the Reality-Based Community on the way out, for sheer spite.

By the way, if you want to read a great scene-by-scene fisking of the first "Left Behind" novel (those novels that place the Christian "Rapture" in modern times, with the anti-Christ as Secretary-General of the U.N--No, really), Slacktivist is the place to go.
