So far I've watched 1-9, 49-50, and plan to finish the series today. I'm not sure where to begin on this.
The series starts off well enough with things most of us would consider truth: The way the media, entertainment, and advertising are used to influence
us. Billions of people also believe in a future Anti Christ figure and also believe the NWO is indeed very real and very near.
However, the biggest issue I have with this, and this is crucial, is while the makers of this film are saying the faiths must unite against the
Antichrist, they (from what I have seen so far) have failed to mention the extremely different views of the Antichrist in Christianity and the
Antichrist in Islam. It's night and day: We're not looking for same person in the way they lead us to believe.
This involves one of the research projects I started on ATS:
Correlations between the Antichrist and the Islamic Mahdi
There has been a lot of discussion among prophecy scholars as they begin to notice the eerie similarities between certain figures and events
foretold in Christian and Islamic eschatology (the study of the end times).
As most of us know, the Christian prophecies predict an Antichrist, False Prophet, an end times government system, one world religion, and the return
of Christ. What is now becoming more known is that sects of Islam also prophesy a figure known as 'Al Mahdi' who is seen as a Messiah-like figure
for Islam, as well as the return of Jesus that will reinforce the Mahdi, their own Antichrist figure known as the 'Dajjal,' and an Islamic
None of this may sound terribly interesting at first glance due to the fact that all three Abrahamic faiths share similarities. However, there is a
twist. The startling difference is that the figure prophesied in the Judeo-Christian texts regarding the Anti-Christ is clearly shown to be the
'villain' while the anticipated Mahdi of Islam is described as being a hero and a 'messiah' of sorts.
This has led many scholars to believe the prophecies regarding the Antichrist and the Islamic Mahdi are describing and pointing to the same figure and
events and that the Antichrist could ultimately be the Mahdi.
There are startling similarities between the Antichrist and False Prophet of Christianity (both described as 'bad guys') and the Mahdi and 'Jesus'
figure of Islam (both described as good guys).
I'll finish the series before going any further. It also didn't escape my attention how Judaism was depicted as being an evil entity. This is
important as 'the bad guy' of Islamic prophecy, the Dajaal, is believed by Muslims to be Jewish. Essentially, he will be the Antichrist of Islam
while Al Mahdi will be their redeemer, at the expense of Christians and Jews.
