"It's very profound in the radical edge of it," says Wright, who explores the ideological rift for an article in next week's New Yorker magazine. "Before, moderate Muslims have spoken out against violence in the name of Islam, but now radicals are doing the same thing. And what's fascinating is that they're attacking on two grounds: One is that [violence is] not practical because it hasn't achieved their purposes. And secondly, it's sinful. It is placing the souls of the people who commit this violence in great jeopardy."

All through history people have claimed that someone is the Anti-christ and it never ever ever is, neither is it the end times, throughout history people have claimed it is the end of the world etc, flaggants during the plagues claimed it was the wrath of God for there sins, but we're still here.
If you say the antichrist is here "because the bible says so" the Bible also says that Jesus split one loaf of bread between 5000 people, do you believe that?
And if you say it is because it is when the Mayan calendar ends, two things
1. The Mayans are all dead, and don't you think as a society we're a bit more advanced than them
2.2012 is when the Mayan calendar ends, apparently the end times, but by Muslim reckoning the year is 1428, according to the Jews its 5768 and according to the Hindus its 5109, so we either have 572 years left or it happened roughly 3000 years ago. In which case we have no need to worry.
