A website, claiming to be run for Christians and by Christians, is offering to send post-Rapture emails to all the sinners you’ll leave behind (up to 62 of them!) for the bargain price of only $40 per year. My first thought was that they must keep an atheist lesbian on staff to hit “send”…but apparently it’s all automated if their workers don’t log on for three days straight.
What’s that email sent from the great beyond gonna say? “Dear Son, Having a lovely time here in Heaven. Wish you were here?” or maybe, “Is Mom still with you?” or even, “This place isn’t as nice as the brochures said, live it up!”
I’ve got a few problems with this idea. First, $40 a YEAR for this “service?” (Though they promise renewals will cost less as more suckers subscribers sign up.) Second, the whole idea assumes that post-rapture there will still be enough people around to keep the power grid up and running, the ISPs operational, and that any loved ones left behind will be going about their business as usual, checking email and such.
I started to make this post an “internet idiot” for today…but if people are actually signing up for this crap, its inventors are geniuses. If it catches on, I might start collecting money for “post-rapture” dog walking services, or “post-rapture” lawn care (who wants to leave behind untidy gardens?)
