Oh Seymour. Regardless of how you look in the Reality Zone, you're still human at heart.

Some of you may be wondering, "Why does Tat continue to delay the revelation of the significance of Vainglorious/what's happened to real Slicky/what's going on with Blue/where Carmen, Capri, and Jackie have gone?"

...*DELETE*
except not really because it's Tat's comic and he can do what he wants to

Seymour, dear fellow, no one knows when the apocalypse will be. If you'll stop predicting it, you'll never be disappointed when it doesn't arrive.

After all, many before you have tried and were just as wrong.

It's to the point that now, when I hear predictions that the world is about to end, I say, "What, again?"

Maybe the apocalypse already happened and Sinfest is in some sort of limbo.

Why not? Obviously, we may much more probably than not predict such a colossal event as our own extinction, or at least a global enough catastrophe before its happening. Charlatans, on the other hand, would always make ungrounded statements and mythology, because, well, that's how they make their fame and fortune.

Meanwhile, Seymour has hit the nail right between the eyes: God does indeed like jerking people around.

I apologize if this is just too sensible, not to mention theological, but it is one of my "pet peeves." The Apocalypse, and in particular, the Rapture, is largely an invention of a guy named named Scofield who wrote a study Bible a little over a hundred years ago. Poor Seymour is one of many (mostly U.S.) Christians who are continually disappointed because they don't get raptured while all the "heathens" get left behind to suffer a horrible fate. This concept was unknown to the early church, and would have been completely antithetical to what they understood their responsibility to be. Which would be, to stay and be a part of whatever happened, bringing comfort to whoever they could. All those poor little Seymours, who don't get to go up to heaven and watch the world suffer on the big screen while they sip iced tea.

Seymour, does the phrase "will come like a thief in the night" mean anything to you?

Probably not.

Revelation was only included in the Canon with the understanding it was NOT to be taken literally. Which is the way it was understood until 150 years ago.

Or maybe Sinville is Purgatory. It would explain a lot. But wait, that would mean the Sisterhood wasn't perfect. Never mind.

Thanks, it is, indeed, a comparatively recent invention, which I didn't know.
