Regardless if Atheists or Theists, the answer is NO.
It needs the real deal from our common Creator, who loved us ALL and is known by many names across time and space.
The reason is - we humanity are FLAWED.
Given free will to choose and decide, when power is given, it is often corrupted. And when ABSOLUTE power is given, it corrupts even absolutely,
proven time and time again since the dawn of our civilisation.
None, no mortal had proven otherwise.
There were many truly good men, such as Washington, Roosevelt, Kennedy, Churchill, Sun Yet Shin, etc,. Ghandi was one of these great man of his time,
and yet he was considered flawed, due to his treatment to his family, but he knew his limitations.
Although his concept of 'preaceful revolution' would never work in a world filled with wild beasts such as Stalin or Mao, it worked with the more
cultured and refine English, and saw independence for India.
Prior to that, he knew the flaws of mankind and instructed his followers of dissidents to disband upon achieving freedom. But Nehru did not follow,
and we see the consequences of such disobedience today - corruptiong at the highest levels that had setback Great India for decades, for the freedom
fighters felt they deserved 'entitlement' - power and wealth for their efforts, same as the great commies of China, which resulted in corruption,
cronyism and oppression of the masses.
Thus, if a noble minded man or women were to think he/she can pull such a trick, it will only end up mankind worse than before, because of our flaws,
no matter how much we delude ourselves that we can change this trait. On a national level, with millions of lives at stake, the only way to change is
to abdicate or resign, otherwise more will suffer.
Take a case of example happening right now:-
The Iranian PM Ahmed thinks he is the Mahdi, for the drug crazed Khomenei had apostically prophecy his next heir will be the one to usher in the
Mahdi. Who else but him being the one?
But is he truly the one, with his warmongering, belligerance and treatment using repression upon even his own People? Is this the one who will save
mankind? If so, then I think our fellow brothers and sisters in Iran would rather be dead to be spare the ensuing suffering.
Another deluded fool is the apostate Khamenei. He had been working hard on the ground in Qom, where the Mahdi will come from. Firmly beliving in the
tale of the Mahdi, there needs no doubt that he thinks he is the one. Already capable of apostacy, there is no further fear to twist the tale to being
the Mahdi himself.
Qom residents, whom already know him well, had grovel before him, treating him as god-on-earth, will foolishly accept his worlds, and through them,
lent credibiltiy to the tale of the Mahdi appearance to ALL muslims sects on Earth, in the hope that all may kneel and sing praises to him. That's
what's he been dreaming about, in his numerous supposed 'meditation' while falling asleep after a heavy meal.
In all honest truth, all mankind wants is to achieve common aims - peace, love, justice, equality, shared prosperity, responsible freedom,etc, etc. If
a leader can provide such, he would be accepted.
But can this apostate Khamenei offer such? Judging by his record of funding terrorists to butcher innocent men, women and children around the world
and repressing his own people, it would only be a fantasy. Worse when he gains absolute power, with such deluded dreams, he will turn out far worse
than the decadent caliphs during the Ottoman era.
No mortal can fake it. Its got to be the real thing, divinely inspired and worked out, or nothing.
And as a footnote, do not, do not seek for the return of the Messiah. His return will only mean Judgement day. Only 144,000 humans will be saved. The
insignificant nobody me is flawed and most certainly doubt to be one of them, but am prepared to face my Maker for the things I had done. Those whom
think themselves sinless and is one of them, will be worse, for no mortal is, and would most certainly be not among the saved. And if by some miracle
there are those who make it, I doubt if they want to go, for it would mean leaving their loved ones behind - family, relatives and friends. It will be
the most tragic day for all mankind.
Rather, we have the capability to acknowledge our errors, correct them and progress, as a collective, and not rule by one flawed mortal alone. None
knows the end day, but we do know that if we continue killing and be selfish, the end will surely come one day, and soon.
