Don’t get me wrong, I am not making fun of anyone’s religious beliefs. Everyone is entitled to their own relationship with the Divine (or not). I was just impressed with this pamphlet (© 1974 Leon I. Bates) and its attention to detail. I do feel Mr. Bates believed the Rapture was upon us because of the Energy Crisis of 1973.
I do take umbrage to folks who preach fear and terror, so maybe I am a little gleeful that Mr. Bates’ prediction missed his timeline (as they all seem to do.)
Of course, it was found in a donated Bible.
