Do you lie awake at night because you didn’t order televangelist Jim Bakker‘s Giant Buckets of Food for the impending apocalypse? Have you forgotten how to order things from the internet?

Have no fear. Bakker has now launched a non-stop End Times survival shopping network.

Doomsday-Fearing Man Spent the Last 30 Years Building Secret Bunkers on Government Land

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating the case along with the FBI and other law enforcement bodies, has so far declined to identify the man, revealing only that he resides in the town of Parowan. According to official information released so far, the man acted out of fear that the world might end or that society as we know it might somehow collapse. The structures he built are located in a forest bordering the ski town of Brian Head.

To prepare for the end of days, the man spent the last 30 years building four cabins and an undisclosed number of underground bunkers on land owned by the state of Utah and the federal government, sneaking the material piece by piece. Were it not for an accidental wildfire that ravaged the area in the summer, this sneaky busy bee may have continued his work uninterrupted for years.

From Fox News, theoretically a real news network:

Biblical prophecy claims the Rapture is coming April 23, numerologist says

Yes, they actually are reporting the ravings of a biblical numerologist as "news".

You may as well visit a madhouse and report the psychotic delusions of the inmates. There's just as much truth and plausibility in it.

Would those "lots of people" have even known about it had Fox not chosen to report on it?

Or did they?
Sure they did. Look at the article, it's not very long.

The fact that they published an article about it at all also arguably lends some credence, but I'm not even talking about that. Sure, they added a throwaway line that "NASA repeatedly has said Planet X is a hoax" but most of the article just repeats the claims without any judgment or attempt to apply critical thinking to the claims. The one critic who is quoted seems to be a rapture believer, who is only skeptical about using numerology to predict the date of the rapture.

How many Trilobites were killed during the capture of that image?

You probably don't even know.

Imagine that: The Burning Tire Apocalypse.

Thank Gawd that Humans cannot do anything to this planet because Gawd made it.



Wait.
