- (1888PressRelease) May 30, 2011 - Shenzhen,China - There has been a lot of joke making and merriment on Facebook recently surrounding the 'day of rapture' according to laser and light source Lazerpoint.
in April, Christian pastor and radio personality Harold Camping announced that on the 21st of May, 2011 worthy Christians would be judged and lifted up to heaven ahead of the coming apocalypse.
Camping's Family Radio congregation took this seriously but this was derided by a lot of people on the internet with groups on Facebook at the forefront.
Johnson Gray, PR Manager for laser and flashlight seller, Lazerpoint, said Facebook has been flooded with jokes, groups and events surrounding the occasion.
Three events which got the most attention were a post-rapture looting party, a group inviting attendees to capture evidence of 'rapture victims' and one from a company asking people what their plans were post rapture.
There was a combined membership of 839,661 for these pages with the Random Acts Of Rapture event getting 5,793 attendees.
"People realize the inherent absurdity of there being a nameable date for the end of the world and want to express that," said Mr Gray. "Who knew that Facebook would be their platform for doing this."
According to Mr Gray a fewFacebook users even utilized the page 'Get Ready For Judgement Day' as a way to highlight the plight of atheists in the US campaigning for the separation between church and state.
"One submitter pointed people to Damon Fowler, a US college student who has been ostracized from his community because of pointing out the illegality of prayer in school," said Mr Gray.
The laser and flashlight source asked Facebook followers what they would do the day of the rapture in return for a laser, headlamp or flashlight and received a range of answers.
"The answers we received ranged from very serious to extremely funny," said Mr Gray. "It was an extremely enlightening experience."
Mr Gray said that, with Lazerpoint's product range and ethos it was not surprising that it got such a good response for this offer
"Only the smartest, most practical people shop on Lazerpoint," said Mr Gray. "They know when not to overpay for lasers and they know a joke when they see it."
