Organization Offers To Buy Possessions Off Rapture Believers

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A skeptical organization is telling end-of-the-world believers to put their money where their mouth is by offering to buy possessions off anyone who truly believes the Rapture is at hand.

The Center for Inquiry, an international organization of people who feel the recent paranoia surrounding an imminent Rapture is not founded in reason, will pay 10 cents on-the-dollar for believers’ earthly possessions.

The reasoning behind the cash offer is that those who believe the end is coming will have no use for their material goods and can fill their pockets and live like a king before the Rapture hits.

The offer was first introduced last week and while Center for Inquiry spokesman James Underwood says he hasn’t received any calls yet, he expects “to make a tremendous profit” by re-selling any possessions bought off Rapture believers.

To inquire about the offer, believers can contact Underwood at (323) 666-9797, ext. 101.
