Contract Law & Pet Rapture Insurance

There is this new insurance called pet rapture insurance
for people that believe in the rapture, but are concerned about their beloved pets they will leave behind when they are raptured.

So a believer pays a fee that is supposed to provide them with peace of mind that the pet will be cared for in their absence. I am not sure how much peace of much such a contract can provide. A contract is not of much value if it is not enforceable. Since the two parties entering into the contract are the beliver and Eternal Earthbound pets, when the rapture occurs, the believers will not be a position to enforce the contract since they will not be around to file a law suit.

It is a very funny legal situation. Eternal Earthbound is only required to perform their end of the contract if there is a rapture. However, in the event that there is a rapture, the believer is not in a position to enforce the contract. It seems like a pretty lucrative contract for Eternal Earthbound, except for that the people running Ethernal Earthbound are likely unbelievers, and they have to face the eternal consequences of that unbelief.

  1. "are likely unbelievers..."???

    Uh.. their website confirms they are atheists. It says so on their home page. Doesnt take a rocket scientist to come to that conclusion, only the ability to read.

    As for eternal consequences... exactly what are you going to do when you die, meet Ganesh, the four armed elephant god of the Hindus, in paradise?

    May I suggest you walk around with peanuts in your pocket so if you suddenly die your unbelief doesn't result in any negative consequences.

  3. They could very well assign a trustee to enforce the contract. Or they could require the insurer to appoint one as part of the closing of the deal.

    As long as the trustee was not a Christian (maybe they could demand that the trustee blaspheme aganist the holy spirit as a condition of closing...)

    Oh wait. Is that just "who watches the watcher?" problem? Who ensures the trustee files the suit?

  5. I fully agree with the fact that you need to pay a fee in order for someone to look after your pobymtsom while you are not.
