The Antichrist delusion

 This is a follow up post to another one a few weeks back about what names mean.

Sometimes, I enjoy reading the arguments by religious groups for creationism or existence of god. Basically I do this because I then have blogging fuel, it also helps me counter new arguments in debates. For some reason there are always new arguments for god. Fortunately, you just have to learn how to see the bones of the argument and then you can see that they are actually not that new.

Anyway this post has got to do with the antichrist (ghostly noises in the back ground) and what I see as a small trend emerging. For some reason there are people out there who believe that Barack Obama is the antichrist.

Now regardless what you think of his politics etc, I have to wonder where this comes from. Luckily the people at Snopes have made this easy for me and so I can just put the link to this lunacy here. Additionally see the original post that I made about Barack Obama's name, the link is at the top of the article.

But what i want to talk about here, is have not all these people got the prophecy wrong? Firstly, I always thought that the antichrist was meant to come before the rapture. Apparently, I am not the only person to think this, but then again a lot of scholars cannot agree on this either....and here is me thinking the bible actually made sense.

More importantly, the antichrist will reign for 7 years. So that means that next year is the final year that he will reign or be in office? So many questions that just do not MAKE ANY SENSE!

But then again Bill Clinton was also the antichrist....I love the Internet, stuff just never goes away
