Hey... I thought FPPs were supposed to tell us something we didn't already know...

I hope that is what passes for satire around these parts...

Y'know, I can make the same case for Ronald Reagan . . .

Full name "Ronald Wilson Reagan"
Number of letters in each word: 6

Voila! 666.

On the other hand, so what.

Horns and music added for dramatic effect.

Thank you Master. You made me laugh really early today.

It might be satire twine42, but there are people that think that they find truths in things like this. Consider that people believe in The Bible Code. The Bible Code adherents believe that secret information is encoded in the bible and that by arranging the letters in a grid you can find these messages sort of like a cross word puzzle. Of course there's no standard grid and never mind that the current bible is a translation of a translation of pieced together and hand selected works.

Unfortunately, GWB is one of them.

Isn't there some sort of Godwin's law parallel that applies to any mention of Nostradamus...? Once people start citing good ole Nostra-dude as proof or evidence of *anything*, it's obvious that they are too far gone to be bothered with facts, reason, etc...

Having said that, the link is clearly a satirical site. Parody is sometimes funny, I'll admit.

Do you really think this is satire? This looks sadly serious to me. It's nowhere near Onionesque.

Hmm, Antichrist posts from "Domain Master 666". Does that qualify as a self-link?

What will W do when he discovers he is the antichrist (not God's tool, as he possibly believes)? Or will he care? (I see a movie plot, a la Lost Souls and The Omen and others.)

I thought the site that inspired it was much funnier.

Notice the "Satan Loves Bush" and "Evil Supports Bush" placards in the background? What exactly does that tell you?

Uhhh, that someone is a bit less than competent with PaintShop?

Based on that section alone, you gotta believe this thing is satirical.... you know, in a low-brow Church Lady kinda way.

To me, the whole idea of one single Antichrist in the future is rather poor exegesis...did these people really read 1 John, or just skim it for scary words? The book says anyone who does not acknowledge Jesus and God as father and son is an antichrist, and that many "antichrists" have already come and gone. Ironically, the so-called bible literalist fundamental Christians always seem to have a bad understanding of scripture.

This Antichrist, it vibrates?

Heh, sorry...
posted by tomcosgrave at 7:46 AM on April 2, 2003


drinkcoffee - I'm the AntiChrist!

And I go to church every Sunday (well... one than one a month) to keep my fiancee happy and to take part in their hymns and prayers and chants that seem way too much like brain washing techniques for my liking. Sorry, wrong thread.

Agreed about the Godwin/Nostrodamus thing. We can call it Twine's Second Law if you want. Twine's First Law is that there is always someone who will put their name to anything in a mad bid for fame...

By this logic, I am the antichrist!....errr....better keep that silent for awhile...chicks will dig me.....power will be mine...hmmmm....there are souls to be had!! I'm off!

People don't understand what antichrist really means. This mythological being is someone who does exactly the opposite of Our Lord. He was born on this big crucifix, and spent his days touching people and killing them, or giving them leprosy, as well as walking backwards, carrying donkeys. One day, he ate 498 loaves and fishes. People speak of the miracle of him Falling Into Ice. On the night of his immaculate death, where he was tragically enveloped by a whore, there was an infinite quantity of room at the local inn. This event was marked by three stupid women moving away at high speed.

If George Bush really was the Antichrist, he would make sure that any evidence that could be brought up about it would be as ridiculous and seemingly as unbelievable as possible, so that we'd all laugh and ignore his rise to unholy dominion over planet earth.

I mean, duh. That's what I'd do. Suckers.

You can also rearrange the letters to spell 'Insane Anglo Warlord.'

Dubya isn't smart enough to be the antichrist.

So if the AC is here, that means Christ is here or is on the way . If he's here he's probably the opposite of Bush. Great, Ralph Nader is Jesus. Or was he just a lesser demon who helped Bush to power? Numerologists are working on that question as we speak.

History has a tendency of repeating itself. Unfortunately, sometimes so does prophecy. When John wrote the Book of Revelations, he was expecting the end of the world and the return of Christ to happen in his own lifetime. Personally, I think Revelations was a rather exagerrated description of the Fall of the Roman Empire, which was destroyed by fire, with Nero fiddling while it burned. So as far as I'm concerned, Revelations already happened. It's just that John didn't get the details right. The thousand years of peace that John spoke about was what we refer to today as "The Dark Ages" with the Roman Catholic Church controlling all the known knowledge of the human race until the Rennaissance put an end to its tyranny.

Your mileage will no doubt vary, but as far as I'm concerned, mystery solved. What's happening now? It's yet to be written, which, come to think of it, is a bit more unsettling than blind faith in prophecy.
