The End is Nearer: Updates for the Week of June 23-29

I was a little disappointed to see that neither Fred Clark nor Mouse posted LB critiques this week, but otherwise we’ve got some great stuff going on…

  • Based on the recent NSA scandal, has raised its Rapture Index to 185 (record high = 188).  That makes sense, relatively speaking.  But why is the scandal listed under the category “Mark of the Beast” instead of “Government,” “Civil Rights,” or “Leadership?” (At the very least, I would have put it under “False Prophet,” since the internet is the means through which the Antichrist would logically be publicized.)  Anyone able to shed some light on this decision?
  • Finally, I’m excited to note that This is the End (the second Rapture movie of the summer!) was released in the UK on June 28th. Below, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg talk on Bleeding Cool about unofficial sausagefests and the challenges of filming:

I recently watched This is the End in theaters and have some positive things to report! Hopefully that post will be done sometime next week.  In the meantime, have a lovely week, and remember that if you have anything you’d like to see in an update, you can email me at
