The game is nine days old today, and now that we’ve hit a wall I’m seeing the rise of the “Christian Mythology Angle,” an angle I’m sure it took certain kinds of Christians nine seconds to think of and to begin promulgating on the web. This angle (see #6 on this list) doesn’t work.
First, the anglers are citing various Biblical passages but not citing which version of the Bible those passages come from (King James, the New International Version, the New Living Translation, the New American Standard, the New Jerusalem Bible, etc.). They also have no basis for choosing one version of the Bible over another. Therefore, any “clues” in the form of Bible verses are invalid unless the puppet masters verifiably work some in.
Second, the anglers have no basis for choosing the books, chapters, and verses they’re citing. 12:01, 12:36, 1:18… These chapters and verses could have come from various books in the Bible, yet those making such citations have chosen to draw from the New Testament — most likely because it contains the Book of Revelation.
There are no shortage of apocalyptic attacks on humanity or large groups of humanity dwelling in huge cities in the Old Testament. That fact increases the importance of choosing the correct book, chapter, and verse. Again, we have no basis for doing so.
“What about anti-christ.com?” you ask.
Unless I get some info proving that it’s been purchased or rented by Bad Robot, I’m calling it a fake. Here’s what googling “anti-christ.com” reveals: “Anti-Christ.com. Last Updated December 05, 2005. Home || The Nostradamus Mabus Project || Sqlspace … Welcome to Anti-Christ.com. The Anti-Christ …” Here’s what it used to look like.
And the bit about “The Nostradamus Mabus Project?” A reference to the sci-fi show “First Wave.”
