Re: Prophecies

I see the seven hills as the seven continents of the world so far as the prophecy goes.

If you had any actual evidence that the writer knew that there were 7 continents, that would impress me greatly. But, beyond that, exactly how does Vatican City rule over Antarctica? I mean, I know nuns are sometimes called penguins, but I always took that to refer to a somewhat imaginative comparison to appearance. Are you suggesting that penguins are in reality agents for the Catholic Church?

I believe there's at least one Catholic church on that continent, but not sure. The prophecy is worded so that the large island, Greenland, could be counted as the 7th continent.

Well, don't worry about it too much. If it turns out that neither of those things is correct, I'm sure you can make up something else to save your fantasy. That's the nature of irrational bigotry, it doesn't require any actual facts to support it.

Dude, how bored are you that you needed to dredge up this steaming pile of crap?


Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate
