Robert Fitzpatrick, author of The Doomsday Code (up until yesterday the definitive book about The Rapture) is mocked in Times Square following his failure to ascend into heaven.
All over the country people went buck naked into heaven leaving their worldly clothing behind. Add your photos of raptured friends, relatives, or even yourself.
Such promptness and politeness should not go to waste. Fill out your own and leave for friends and neighbors.
Given that today is the day of the supposed Rapture, I felt that this song would be appropriate to post. Hell, If I die, I'm going out rocking.
These weapons aren't going to save your ass during the rapture, but you'll look a lot cooler than the rest of the damned.
May 21st. You still here? Fantastic! Watch this.
THERE IS STILL TIME!!!! Don't let pesky roofs and ceilings keep you from the loving arms of the LORD!
For your May 21st Rapture Film Festival. These are the best apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic films that have nothing to do with Michael Bay or Roland Emmerich. Since you're going to be left behind in the tribulation and will have nothing better to do besides suffer famine and plague, add your own favorites in the comments below!
A Christian mime team acts out The Rapture in their church.
Admit it, once you're in heaven, you're going to be laughing at the heathens down under. See ya! Wouldn't wanna be ya!
Come Monday we have no way of knowing which BuzzFeed staffers will have ascended and which will be coming into the office to do the good internet's work. In honor of what could be our last day together, some of us gathered with our favorite foods for a BuzzFeed Last Supper / Rapture Lunch. What would you eat for your last meal?
Cross off as many excuses as possible by May 22!
With the end of the world rapidly approaching, it couldn't hurt to look at how it might all go down. Or in the unlikely event the world does not end on May 21, 2011, it's still nice to know there are at least 9 real world-ending things that don't necessarily require divine intervention to end all life as we know it.

With only 3% of the world's population getting Raptured on Saturday, the rest of us better be prepared. Of course I'm not listing EVERYTHING you need. After all, how could I rule you all if I gave away my secret plan?
It's the end of the world as we know it. Well, not entirely. But if you are unlucky enough to be one of the chosen ones at least you can go out listening to some good tunes. Together let's create the most epic rapture mixtape that will entertain generations to come (if there are any left, that is). Leave your contribution in the comments!
Buzzfeed top brass are prepared for an Internet after the Apocalypse.
Harold Camping isn't the first self-proclaimed prophet to calculate a date for the rapture. In 1833, William Miller predicted the rapture would occur around 1843. The Millerite movement gradually gained followers in the early 1840s, culminating in the Great Disappointment when Jesus failed to appear in October, 1844. Despite their disappointment, the Millerites made some interesting theological charts. Take a moment and check them out.
Sure at first it's all burning and screaming but after a decade or three it's serene and OH GOD MUTANT BIKER GANG! RUN! Looks like the number one accessory for post-Rapture survival is not water or food but good old fashioned spray paint.
This is old but it is relevant again methinks.
If you're reading this after Saturday, it means that the evangelicals are all gone and, worse - they were right the whole time. Don't you feel like an asshole? Oh, and also, sucks about all those earthquakes and the pestilence and the locusts, huh?
The Rapture is coming! One day only! This Saturday! Saturday! SATURDAY! Reserve your spot amongst the Unsaved by scrolling through and laughing at this list.
