there’s a mention to it in one of my posts here:
I’m not too swayed either way on the truth or not of any separate entity being an 'antichrist'. Just a label or name for a really really bad
person! Hitler is seen by some to be one and also Nero, Napoleon etc etc....
However if one looks at the texts in revelations and tries to find literal meaning in the existence of a 'mark' on such a bad person... well to me
this seems the most likely.
It is important though to understand in its entirety where the source of the passage comes from, and the changes made to its original true message.
This has been achieved both by accidental changes in the 'nuance' or interpretation of the text through translation. It though has also been changed
and 'spun' by the church at the time of writing.
It worries me that soo many people believe blindly in something they don’t understand or have researched themselves very much. Whole cults are
appearing around this 'revelations' 'rapture' scenario, and many innocent people are being manipulated, their lives more anxious and paranoid and
ultimately wasted in worries of the future. :C Just one fact revelations was more than likely to have been experienced by a wandering mystic, under
the influence of some type of Psychedelic Influence, then orally passed down for a few generations. It almost certainly wasn’t written down within
24 hours of the 'vision'
This version was then re - written and re translated many times before being accepted as the text we all know in Revelations.
I am by saying the above in know way saying that a wandering mystic under such an influence may not have a 'glimpse' of the future.... The American
Indians have some provable and certified accurate prophecy recently come to pass with similar methods!
I just wish people who feel soo strongly on it and the literal representation of the text, just thought about, really thought deeply about the actual
authors of the bible, then look at the people who lead them in faith using the writings of people who in today’s society they would denounce or
That being that, and it really is an entire thread of its own just to start on the surface, if one takes the premise that in reality a way of
identifying the last Antichrist would be through this means, well its not where wisdom comes in if you ask me! just common sense. The first place to
look if you ask me though I don’t take it seriously... is in the population number...
well then with the current discrepancy over the real marks value (due to factors raised above) it could be 616 or 666 or maybe somewhere in
Agent Smith good link was going to add it myself
However if the mark is actually 616 maybe he/she (well it I suppose
) may already be born:
US GOVERNMENT CENSUS POPULATION CLOCK
U.S. 297,827,349 - World 6,488,781,628 - 23:54 GMT (EST+5) Jan 01, 2006
so it wont be long now even if its 666, that is assuming this titbit of popular cultural lore has any truth to it.
