Brutal Antipathy is a pseudonym for a blogger and forum debate enthusiast whose views often rest well outside of social baseline. A self confirmed atheist, misanthropist, and sadist, his commentary ranges from parched textbook facts to satire and sarcasm. He is a proponent of free speech and individual liberty even when these are taken to excess. His political views shift between lower case libertarian and enlightened despotism depending on the level of contempt he is feeling for his fellow humans at any given moment. His reading interests include history, general science, archaeology, comparative religion, psychology, & sociology. Other interests and hobbies include practicing various crafts, torturing his slave, blogging, playing with his dogs, collecting antiques, role playing & tactical simulation games, renaissance fairs, and cheerfully making other people miserable by holding up a mirror of their shortcomings and repeatedly bashing them in the face with it.

I May Be a Christian By This Time Tomorrow

 Then again, judging by the accuracy of past predictions, probably not.

People are always predicting the end of the world. Jesus himself is rendered by the New Testament authors a false prophet in Matthew 16, Mark 9, and Luke 9 as he predicts the coming of the kingdom of God  within the lifetime of his then listening audience.

So much for Rapture Jesus. We can toss Jesus out with the dishwater, as indeed is exactly what the father of Christianity did shortly after Jesus' death.
