Given my interest in applying scientific research to predicting the stock market I’m not surprised by this. But, rarely does a website actually make me laugh out loud.
Check this out: The Rapture Index – AKA “The prophetic speedometer of end-time activity”. It breaks down the criteria for the apparently imminent rapture and assigns a number to it, meaning how “satisfied” that indicator is for the prediction. I guess the assumption is that once all the criteria are somewhat satisfied we’re doomed.
Currently the index is at 155. To quote their description of the index values:
- 85 and Below: Slow prophetic activity
- 85 to 110: Moderate prophetic activity
- 110 to 145: Heavy prophetic activity
- 145 and Above: Fasten your seat belts
The described purpose actually gave me another big laugh when I got to the bottom of the page: to “standardize those components to eliminate the wide variance that currently exists with prophecy reporting”. Yes, once we figure out a good standard for prophecy reporting maybe it’ll get included in our daily news. “Folks – watch out tomorrow, both the UV index and the Rapture index are looking pretty high.”
