The Rapture Index

When Christ comes back to Earth at the end of time (which of course we all know is going to happen soon) Christians will be gathered up to meet him in The Rapture.  So when will it happen?

The Rapture Index  does not exactly answer this question.  However apparently it gathers together a number of related end time components into a cohesive indicator, and the other is to standardize those components to eliminate the wide variance that currently exists with prophecy reporting. 

As of 31st January the Rapture Index was at 174.  You might ask yourself what this means, but the site kindly explains that if the index is over 160 you should fasten your seat belts. 

It all falls down when you ask how they know this?  Well apparently the answer lies in 1 Thessalonians, if you choose to interpret chapter 4 verses 15-17.  (My father-in-law seemed keen that the first word spoken by each of his grandchildren would be Thessalonians but as far as I know he failed to influence them enough.)  

How do they know that the bible is true?  Easy - the bible tells you so.
