GOING POSTAL: IN THE POSTAL ZONE: working with people who aren't all there

Someone was going over some politcal items while waiting to clock out and suggested that the Iraq war was a good thing. I raised an eyebrow, and asked him "why".

He said that Bush is supportive of Isreal, and there's a good chance that the Temple could be rebuilt and Armageddon would be ushered in. And that would be a good thing.

A good thing that millions of people will die?

Yes, he said, they don't have anything to worry about if they believe in Jesus. The rapture will take them. They will all be with Christ and God.

I told him that the word "Rapture" doesn't occur in the Old or New Testament.

Really? he said, You'll have to show me where.

"Show me where." should be pretty easy in this case. Just open to a random page.

YOU forget Dave, that the density of people who truely believe (as opposed to knowing) is that what is there is self referenced to the point of absurdity and there is no point in arguing.

Not being able to point out what is not there would be his vicotry, because I couldn't prove my point.
