The Rapture is due to start today. My wife tells me the news said around 6:00 PM. But 6:00 PM where? Here in the U.S. most time references on the TV are for Eastern Time. Even if something is happening on the west coast (3 time zones away), they state the time in ED/ST. I suspect this is because people on the East Coast can't make the translation, but I can't prove it. Anyway, it seems a bit strange that God would be tied to a timezone. Unless maybe he is spending his summer in the Bahamas, Hawaii or some other exotic locale.
By the way, as I write this it's already 11:20 PM in Hong Kong and I haven't heard that they have ceased to exist.
