On the Rapture

On the Rapture May 20, 2011

The rapture isn’t going to happen on 21 May 2011. And that implies an ordered series of disconfirmations: (1) Harold Camping is wrong about the Bible; (2) his way of reading the Bible (that is, Biblical numerology) does not reveal anything trans-scientific about the future; (3) evangelical ways of reading the Bible reveal nothing trans-scientific about the future; (4) no way of reading the Bible reveals anything trans-scientific about the future; and finally (5) the Bible carries no trans-scientific information about the future at all. But all these lead to (6) the Bible carries no trans-scientific information about objective reality. (It may carry considerable information about human hopes and fears, but not about objective reality.)
