The anti-christ has nothing to do with anything 'evil' because 'christ' has nothing to do with good. The bible is an allegory. That's it! That's
all it is, and all it ever will be. Nobody will burn in hell, and nobody will be sitting with a bearded guy in the clouds forever and ever.
Get over this idea that you are living in the end times / apocalypse. You aren't any different than any other person who thought they were special
only to die before 'the rapture.'
You die, you go back into the ground to be recycled...just like tons of other living things were recycled so that you could live. There is no escaping
death, and your magical beliefs won't ensure you a VIP seat in the afterlife.
This is by far, the best post in this entire thread.
I read, and I read, and I read and I'm getting a lot of "wah wah wah" and people who claim to be "smart" go on about "god" and "antichrist"
and use buzz-terms like "wake up people". Ironic...and foolish.
I'm noticing a lot of religious whinging and you honestly think that where as, you worship this all-loving god who just happens to allow a massive
oil spill on your home turf and who also allows (wait for the other cute buzz-term) "the powers that be" (shouldn't your invisible friend be the
powers that be, puny human?) to control your life but you can "save your soul" by removing responsibility from your own hands and worshiping your
Yes, things like the oil spill suck.
Being broke sucks.
Accumulating debt sucks.
However, we do this to ourselves.
It's not a conspiracy.
It's not some anthropomorphic devil figure trying to lead you astray from your invisible friend.
We are our own worst enemies.
Yes, banking moguls are greedy, that's why they're in banking
Given the opportunity and having obscene amounts of money and power thrown at your feet, all of you
would do the same thing.
Some of you puny humans talk about "Satan" and the "apocalypse" and "revelations" and all that nonsense and you can't even see the nose in
front of your face.
"Oh we're all puppets wah wah wah!"
Yeah...what do you think your god is doing, eh?
Pulling your strings while you smile and thank your invisible friend for absolving you of responsibility for having to think for yourself.
Aaaaaaanywho...the op was a good read, but I'm wholly apprehensive about using anything from wikipedia as a finite source.
Oh, and another thing...there are those of you who yell "do the research" but all you're doing is piggy-backing on someone else's research.
If you truly did your "own" research, you'd be out digging through corporate files, interviewing people, braving maximum security military
strongholds and expending countless hours in the field collecting and correlating data...so don't act like you're some genius scholar researcher
because you read things on the internet like some lazy slob useless eater.
"Oh, but I posted links to wikipedia so that makes me a proper researcher and I'm so super smart!"
Yes, I'm sure that there are nefarious plans in place to unite the world for a better cause.
I'm a firm believer that in order to do a lot of good, sometimes you have to do a little evil.
Sacrifice a million to save a billion...I'm all for it.
Destroy humanity to save the planet...sign me up.
Ruin the economy to unite the planet and possibly create a unified, evolved, civilized world...let's get this going ten minutes ago!
So many of you out there claim that you've "figured things out" and whatnot...well...good for you.
Pat on the head.
What do you intend to do about it?
Yeah...that's what I thought...
