The world after the Rapture would be very different from the world after a zombie pandemic. Namely, you wouldn’t have to constantly be on the run from flesh-eating monsters, so don’t fret about globetrotting. Instead, the biggest threat you’ll face during the Rapture will be everyday people who’ve had their beliefs and faith utterly shattered.
Being forced to deal with the fact that everything you’ve committed your life to is all a lie would be enough to make any holy person snap. Naturally, you want to lower your chances of encountering such people. Here’s how: KEEP AWAY FROM
Places of Worship: If you’re still around after the Rapture, it’s pretty safe to say that religion isn’t doing you any favors.
And don’t bother looking for redemption after the fact. It’s not like there’s going to be a second Rapture you can catch.
That ship has sailed. Without you on it. Furthermore, places of worship are going to be crawling with desperate fanatics looking to do anything to get to into heaven.
Can you say “human sacrifices?”
Bet you they can. INSTEAD, CONSIDER Chick-fil-a: If you really, really want to visit a safe, blessed location, this is the best you’re going to get. Not exactly sacred ground, but the owners and operators of Chick-fil-a are a pretty devout bunch, which means you can count on them either being in heaven or in a church, frantically trying to get into heaven (remember, human sacrifices.). Either way, the restaurant will very likely be empty, save for you, your ragtag team of survivors, and a whole lot of free nuggets. KEEP AWAY FROM
Wal-Mart: Yup, you’re probably thinking “Wal-Mart? But there’s tons of food and supplies there! It should be the first place I go!”
See, here’s the thing: everyone else is thinking that, too.
Wal-Mart is going to be filled to the brim with other desperate survivors.
The chance of having an altercation there is very high. Frankly, it’s not worth the risk.
Especially when there’s such a safe alternative. INSTEAD, CONSIDER
K-Mart: No one goes there anymore. The end of the world isn’t going to change that. KEEP AWAY FROM
Book Club Meetings: Book clubs meetings are already a cesspool of half-baked theological discussions, and the Rapture would only make them worse.
For example, let’s say there’s a machine that measures the amount of pretentious and nonsensical crap floating through the air that’s spewed from people’s mouths.
Now let’s say you brought said machine to a book club meeting after the Rapture. You know what that machine would do? Explode. It would explode and kill everyone in the room. INSTEAD, CONSIDER
A Rock Concert: Just because the Rapture happened is no reason to not have a good time, right? And a rock concert after the Rapture is practically guaranteed to be absolutely incredible. Just imagine all the bat heads you could bite off without a bunch of prudes judging you.
