That's great, except the Bible is an allegorical text. You can't take a text written thousands of years ago and read it in a semantically literally
fashion. Specifically, the Anti-Christ is not one man. The ten-headed dragon may even be a representation of the monster which the mainstream sects of
Christianity itself have become. Think about it. Jesus says "love each other" and his followers have singlehandedly murdered more human beings than
any other insane cult or psychotic killer in history combined. They've completely missed the point and grown into the largest collection of bigots
the world has ever known. Entire cultures have been wiped out in the name of a man who spoke of peace and understanding. Doesn't that sound to you
like destructive behavior? How does beating gays or shooting doctors or burning witches qualify as enlightened behavior? Those people are just
following the messages in the Bible. Albeit, they've been very selective about what they adhere to and what they don't, keeping in mind that shaving
and not carrying a shovel are punishable in the Bible just as severely as homosexuality while there's seemingly no law forbidding child molestation,
which is a consistent problem we're seeing in priest.
Do you honestly have the balls to sit there and tell us that a book written by authors unknown more than a hundred years after the death of the
central figure (New Testament) and a book plagiarized from another text, which in turn was plagiarized from Sumerian mythology (Old Testament), both
of which sat in the hands of an extremely questionable groups of priests for more than a thousand years without oversight, read to the illiterate
masses any way they chose, is gonna survive into the present and inspire any degree of integrity in a literal interpretation? The simple truth is,
facts can be rearranged to support any belief, even one as flimsy and contradictory as mainstream Christianity.
The original Christians, who were allegedly the followers of "Christ" and mostly Jews themselves were called the Gnostics. Their texts did not
survive very well because the Roman Catholics hunted these people mercilessly. One of the truths they hold is that Christ is a form of consciousness
and that an Anti-Christ is the reverse of this consciousness. The Christ Consciousness, as it it called, carries with it high ideals of love,
gratitude, and understanding. In a word, enlightenment. An Anti-Christ Consciousness would then have to carry ideals of hatred, degeneracy, bigotry
and ignorance. In a word, unenlightenment. Tell me then, does mainstream Christianity (not Christ, Christianity itself) possess the degree of
integrity necessary to dictate and interpret the nature of reality? Who is the real Anti-Christ?
If you were to ask, say, a Kabbalist for an interpretation of the line in Revelation which refers to the Anti-Christ, he will tell you something very
different. The reference to the Anti-Christ brings up numerology. The verse containing it is curious indeed and says within itself that it cannot be
taken literally. It is semantically encoded so as not to be tampered with but simply overlooked by the unenlightened.
The line reads: "This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is
In numerology, man's number is 5. 666 multiplied by 5 is 3,330, which is the master number, or the number of Christ Consciousness. Any of you who
have been randomly seeing 3:33 on your clocks a lot lately are probably tapping into this awareness.
The Beast is described as performing false miracles, mock healing and generally deceiving people through manipulation. Don't Evangelists do just that
all the time for money? Folks, we really need to reevaluate the way we interpret these older-than-dirt parables, especially in light of the obvious
self-serving revisions made by the Catholic clergy. We just cannot afford to interpret such ancient texts so literally.
