There is no war in Iraq

Monday, July 21st, 2008

According to dictionaries and reference material, the debate over one of the biggest issues of our day has been fundamentally mis-framed. Despite the continued widespread usage of the term, there is in fact no ongoing Iraq War, and there has not been since May 1, 2003. When World War II ended in victory for the Allies in 1945, the United States took part in a military occupation of Germany that lasted through 1949. America’s military presence in Iraq for the past 5 years has likewise been a massively costly post-war foreign occupation.

Rapture to occur by end of 1988

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Experts in the field of eschatology agree: the long awaited second coming of Jesus Christ will occur by the end of 1988–most likely on September 11, 12, or 13. This prediction is so rock solid that Bible scholar Edgar Whisenant can offer 88 reasons for it, and Hal Lindsey predicts the same in his book The Late, Great Planet Earth which was the best-selling nonfiction book of the 1970s, and sold over 28 million copies by 1990. Whisenant is also the author of The final shout: Rapture report 1989, 23 reasons why a pre-tribulation rapture looks like it will occur on Rosh-Hashanah 1993, and his most recent work 1997.
