This site is a monument to human stupidity throughout the ages.
The more things change the more they stay the same.In my short time on Earth I have been exposed to predictions of end-times a lot and while my father was alive we talked often of the end times claims that he was assured were just around the corner. I think the idea of end times stems from the occurance of uncertainty that comes with major changes in social order or times of war and even the aging of generations as they come to face the nearing of their own mortality.
So I would disagree that it is human stupidity just the human condition that we all must face.

Koresh also did not sit upon the nations they way the real beast did/does.
What do you suppose that one person will be allowed the power to "sit upon nations" as you say? It simply could never happen given the inevitable lack of agreement between nations.
We cannot muster the will to feed our children world wide without dispute and you seriously think a single person could come in with the ability to convince nations that have never trusted one another to unite in one government overseeing all aspects of all nations business?
Jesus,Mary and Joseph could you be any more obtuse? Please play the part of the person who is in possesion of the one true understanding of the "nature of the beast". 666 is just a number no more or less meaningful than any other.
What is this penchant with finding some kind of mystical relevance to the number system.I mean for crying out loud get into the 21st century already.Hell,come out of the dark ages at least.Honestly.the workings of some peoples minds is truly stunted by the embracing of useless adoration of numbers as an insight into the workings of the world.
I am sure the Pope is the anti-Christ.Yep the vatican pretty much has us all by the balls.We can be certain any day that the world will tremble before the might of this powerful entity.Get a life.
