Happy Eclipse Day/Rapture Day

“A total solar eclipse is taking place on Monday, April 8, 2024, visible across North America and dubbed the Great North American Eclipse by some media. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.”


For the vast majority of Americans there is nothing mysterious or apocalyptic about today’s total solar eclipse. It’s Science 101, and the lucky souls who live on the path of totality plan on celebrating this celestial event by donning cool eclipse glasses and downing a beer or two, or three.

Contrary to common belief, solar eclipses aren’t rare sightings. According to NASA there has been an average of 2.5 eclipses every year for the past 1,000 years.

But for many evangelical Christians the solar eclipse is a major eschatological event, and they expect Jesus Christ to rapture them out of this world during the four minutes of darkness. I’m not surprised at the gullibility and stupidity of evangelicals; they birth a new conspiracy theory every time they have a bowel movement.

While we are looking at the sun, with our protective glasses, evangelicals are looking for the Son of God to emerge from the eclipse. I won’t go into the details of why they believe Jesus will return during the eclipse, because it would make your head spin, if it doesn’t outright explode.

I don’t believe anything that’s not based on science, but wouldn’t it be great if Jesus did return today and raptured the racist, idiotic and hateful and Trump-loving evangelicals out of this world?

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse and Donald Trump’s Moral Darkness

The “Great American Total Solar Eclipse” is anticipated with awe and excitement by most Americans, but a few fundamentalist Christians see it as a divine warning of the impending apocalypse.

These are the same evangelicals who wet their pants in awe and excitement over the Donald Trump administration that has blocked the advancement of civil rights and embraces White Nationalists.

I can`t wait for the solar eclipse, and if I get scared or worried when a hot summer day turns into night this afternoon, I can relax knowing that this phenomenon will last only a couple of minutes.

Unfortunately, the Trump moral darkness will last for four or eight more years, unless we battle the forces of darkness and remove the racist buffoon from power by any means within the law.
