I have seen the Rapture—or, at least its annual Christmas Day approximation, when everyone's at home opening presents and it's just us Jews (and Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, chronic inebriates, and assorted sinners and apostates) out on the streets. If the Rapture really comes, and all the world's righteous Christians are whisked away to heaven, this is probably what it will feel like—peaceful, empty, and nobody left to defend intelligent design. It's really quite nice. (Free, all morning long.)
