I don't know what religion you belong to, and I must say that it really doesn't matter at this point either.  Look around you.  The only place this was predicted was the Christian Bible.

Before you dismiss the idea, think for yourself.  Is it not more important for you to find the truth for the sake of you and your family, than it is to cling to and defend a faith that cannot explain these events?  I don't mean to sound harsh, but again, look around.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.  Besides, when you find the one true God, realize His plans for mankind, and also realize you are a part of it, You'll realize that you are betraying nothing and no one.  You are simply finding the truth.

While it is true that you missed the Rapture of the church, and the remainder of the Tribulation is ahead, you still have a second chance.  I won't lie to you, you are in for some rough times ahead.  Don't make the same mistakes twice.  Get on the (post) Rapture Road before it's to late.
