Rapturous

Tomorrow is supposedly doomsday for the Christians, where they will be raptured away and leave the rest of us alone. I’m skeptical of it happening, and I think it’s silly how much people are focused on trying to get to some after life, instead of focusing on living their lives. Their’s nothing rapturous about giving up the gift of life. And no matter what you believe or don’t believe, life is a gift, and an experience, and not something to be so casually discarded.

Some Christians claim that only God knows when the final day will occur, but the way I figure it is that the need to even have such a day is symptomatic of a disease, a kind of nihilism that focuses on debasing the human experience n favor of trying to discover a state of being that will supposedly take away all the worries and fears people have.

What about living life for the sake of living it? What about learning what this life has to offer? I’m preaching to the choir in a lot of ways, but I think there is value in this life with its follies and its triumphs.
