Bill Maher's Take On The Rapture: May 21 2011

As most of you probably know by now, crackpot minister Harold Camping proclaimed that the "rapture" was going to occur on May 21, 2011. This was going to start out with an earthquake in Asia, followed by worldwide destruction where 200 million "righteous" people would be lifted into heaven while the rest of the earth's population suffered below (charming sounding fellow this God character is, btw).

However, and not surprisingly, the anticipated rapture never happened. Probably the best reaction to the event not happening (as everyone knew that it wouldn't) was from famed comedian and agnostic Bill Maher. Watch his comments in this video from Youtube below:

I agree. I will make the same bet, even though 5,000 dollars is a lot more money to me than it is to him. Somebody pick a date for the "rapture" to occur -- sometime within the next few years to be reasonable. If they're right, I will pay them five grand. If they're not right (and they won't be right), they will pay me five grand.

Are there any takers out there? Come on, rapture believers: put your money where your faith is. Or, is your faith just for show?
