end of days

Today a few people believe will be the end of the world. They feel confident they will be ‘raptured’, taken up to their version of heaven. These people are by & large fundamentalists. They believe the Bible (in the language they are reading it) is the literal word of God (verbatim). These fundamentalists calculate the end of the world through this text, the Bible. But either the word problems God composed are too hard for humans, or God was not really very good at math, because the fundamentalists never seem to calculate the correct date for the end of the world. Whether it’s the inscrutable words or the fuzzy math, it shows the fallacy of believing that one knows what the Bible means.
