This is a question from an admittedly lapsed catholic to all the born-agains out there.
I remember reading some time ago that the Second Coming was scheduled to happen about now, more specifically, Christmas eve, 2000. Well, it’s the following year and so far, no Rapture.
My question is how much time would actually have to elapse before they admitted they made a mistake.(I’m not saying they were wrong, I just wondered what if it’s 50 years from now, will people still be talking about being in the “Final days?”)
I put this in great debates because I know most people have very strong views on this and it is a very polarizing subject. Believe me when I say I am not trying to be disrespectful of anybody’s beliefs, and I am stating this question purely as a philosophical debate.
In other words, I promise not to think of anyone as a kook, if they will do me the courtesy of not assuming that my non-belief will have me roasting forever.
