No. There’s no conspiracy here at the SDMB. There’s an entirely open bias against religious woowooery, though.
The Rapture/Tribulation is not going to happen. I will gladly bet you any amount of money you wish to that it will not happen. It’s an entirely specious extrapolation of various Biblical passages that was fomented in the late 19th Century.
Even if we were to, for the sake of argument, acknowledge the possibility of such a thing happening, the Bible itself argues against anyone being able to “prepare” for it in any way outside of simply becoming a born-again Christian. Won’t God come as “a thief in the night?” Won’t the bridesmaids be taken by surprise? Isn’t it true that no one will know the day or the time except for God? So why does anyone actually put any stock into these “signs”, most of which have been present in every decade experienced by humanity since…well, since ever?
The only place where the “sinister” nature of current events exists is in your mind and those of your fellow Rapture-believers. There is nothing different or sinister about events in the world today. We just let our egos believe that today is special because WE’RE in it.
