Dane Cook is an American stand-up comedian an occasional film actor that has become popular mostly by the use of a personal webpage and MySpace instead to have real talent. From multiple media sources commentators has characterized him as unfunny, and as example his storytelling of an sneezing atheist at Dane Cook: Vicious Circle, a live stand-up comedy special performed for HBO, written and performed by him and aired on September 4, 2006. As a Catholic has a clearly misunderstanding on atheism, but the same would say about many Christians.
After the (predictable) failure of American Christian radio host Harold Camping’s prediction on the Rapture was evidently that an excuse will given instead to recognize that all the matter is nonsense and renounce Jesus Christ as his savior and Lord. Two days was necessary to bring an answer that anyone else would thought in two minutes: that actually May 21, 2011 was an “spiritual” day of judgment, and physical Rapture alongside to world’s end will occur in October 21, 2011, five months later.
Apparently, God’s delay between the spiritual day judgment and Rapture and destruction of the universe is an attempt to emulate the authorities of occupied Prague by the Third Reich: “to act slowly and impersonally, in the manner of planets or vegetables.” according to Jorge Luis Borges in “The Secret Miracle” (1943). So the advices from Graham Murkett, the mind behind YouTube channel Some Grey Bloke regarding the Rapture still worth to hear them, for entertainment instead to practical reasons, of course.
