Sign me up!

Oh thank you marginal revolution for absolutely making my day with this. Atheist pet lovers paid to take care of animals when they're all left behind at Rapture! I need to look into this further - do volunteer pet care providers get paid a fraction of the $110 immediately or only in case of Rapture? Frankly either way I'll take the money. What better way to celebrate the end of evangelism than new kittens?

I also am very amused by the flip of asymmetric belief. More frequently, skeptical buyers purchase from sellers who claim to believe in their product (psychics, banking in the afterlife, etc). But here's a business run by people who are required to not believe in the value of its product, counting on customers who do.

You've committed your life to Jesus. You know you're saved. But when the Rapture comes what's to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.
We are a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Each Eternal Earth-Bound Pet representative is a confirmed atheist, and as such will still be here on Earth after you've received your reward. Our network of animal activists are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus.

We are currently active in 20 states and growing. Our representatives have been screened to ensure that they are atheists, animal lovers, are moral / ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue your pet and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for your pet's natural life.

Our service is plain and simple; our fee structure is reasonable. For $110.00 we will guarantee that should the Rapture occur within ten (10) years of receipt of payment, one pet per residence will be saved. Each additional pet at your residence will be saved for an additional $15.00 fee. A small price to pay for your peace of mind and the health and safety of your four legged friends.

Unfortunately at this time we are not equipped to accommodate all species and must limit our services to dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and small caged mammals.

Thank you for your interest in Eternal Earth-Bound Pets. We hope we can help provide you with peace of mind.

Oh that is hilarious. There's a car in my neighborhood with a bumper sticker that says "If the rapture comes may I have your car?"

I also saw another business venture where you could sign up for them to send out automatic e-mail messages to your "left behind" atheist friends and relatives detailing how they could still be saved, come the rapture. I think there's this grace period or something, but I'm not schooled enough in Theology to remember what it's called.
