More seriously, 13 members of a Palmdale Christian cult have disappeared, apparently preparing for the Rapture. Hopefully, like the Millerites, they'll get calmly disappointed as the expected event fails to materialize, and they come back safe and sound. Then again, the ultimate effect of failed prophecy is often counterintuitive.
