Barack Obama as Anti-Christ Update

A friend sent me this article in an email but there is no citation so I was skeptical to post it, but I'm not a journalist so who cares.
Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama
was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a
black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham,
a white atheist from Wichita, Kansas. Obama's parents met at the
University of Hawaii.

When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father
returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a radical
Muslim from Indonesia. When Obama was 6 years old, the family
relocated to Indonesia. Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta.
He also spent two years in a Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He
is quick to point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school."

Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that
Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this
influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned
to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct
influence over his son's education. Lolo Soetoro, the second husband
of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam.
Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the
radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now
waging Jihad against the western world.

Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking major
public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined
the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim back-

This could actually seriously damage Obama's chances of being the anti-Christ. I think a radical Muslim background could hurt his chances of becoming President. However, in true Anti-Christ fashion, Obama could overcome this setback and that would virtually crown him as the big bad guy of the end times.
If Gavin Newsome gets beyond his current struggles with a shiny image, he might be a longshot for anti-Christ.
My main man, Bono, is still in the hunt.

Side-note #1
- I have to give my friend, Matt Doan, some credit here. He truly began this whole Anti-Christ guessing game and it has been a source of some good humor. But I think he still has his money on Vladimir Putin. Come on, that's yesterday's news.

Side-note #2 - How weird would it be to have a President with the middle name - HUSSEIN.

It is fascinating that an athiest mother would send her son to so many "religious" institutions. It does not surprise me that he would be part of all religions just so that when the time came he could downplay the truth of Christianity and say that all are true and take the world down with him!!
Great point in side-note#2. Creepy and a little ironic

I personally find all of this stuff fascinating. As for my religious views, I don't go to church or practice religion overtly. Was raised as a Christian, and kind of a take a Stephen King stance on it right now: I have conflicting feelings about a lot of it, but there's enough reservation, respect and reverance, that I don't discount or speak of the possibility of there being a God lightly. From a right brained logical standpoint, I feel sort of agnostic, we don't know next to zilch about all there is to know about this life or universe; we only scratch the surface... and I'm not going to presume to not give the benefit of the doubt that there is more than meets the eye in this existence. Wew know things go so much deeper than we can even comprehend the more that we discover through science. Everything exists a reason, that's a law of science, seems weird that it's all just an accident or that we should stop wondering. That's part of the human condition, to look for the meaning of life. Whatever that reason is, I don't know, nobody does, and I'm not going to pretend that I do, but there it's something and it's too big of an issue in life to just ignore. Saying I don't know, but I'm open to things bigger than I would guess seems the most honest answer. You have to be, no great thingker has ever reached the bigger truths by being narrow minded and locking the door with what we already know.

So, that's just my view on things. If there is a intelligent force behind it all, whose to say that people of the right mind didn't connect with that entity or that it hasn't communicated by some means? That the rest of us are just shut off. There is some strange things out there that aren't so easy to simply discredit as the product of insanity, stupidity or fanatiscism.

It bothers me that we so easily write everything ever off this way. It's easier to just trust what we see and discredit it, sure. I sometimes do. THere are a lot of kooks. But I also feel that that's a pitfall that's caused us to be blind to many other advancements. It's a double edged sword, skepticism. Everything should be given respectful consideration, overzealous skepticism is a source of blindness as sure as superstition.

So, there's just enough things to spirituality and the supernatural kinds of history out there, that I think some of qualifies as an anomaly worthy of due process, benefit of the doubt, and respectful investigation.

Back to the subject. There's just a lot of things out there that point to this specific time, probably like no other, as incredibly interesting with regards to end time prophecies (in many religions). Besides the fact of that, and on top of those predictions, just in tangible and scientific terms we also know this world and the human race as a whole is in great peril as never before since we've walked the earth.

It really has a feeling of adding up. And I do find it fascinating, I'm surprised others don't, considering all there is to look at. Even as a trivial and unserious pursuit. I think a lot of the just complete dismissal of anything "supernatural" or related to bid bad, primitive, superstitious, neanderthal religions has negated our sense of looking at it at all. Which I think is sad, because there is a lot there about the human condition by wise men and women that has value and has little to do with the common caricatures or subjects of mockery. It seems sad to me to just write off everything because we think we're smarter and above it by doing so. It says a lot about us, and not ridiculous stupid things.

Anyways, I'm rambling again. I've always found myth, theology, philosop, and how it all relates to the human condition a fascinating subject. I don't find the great writers and leaders and thinkers stupid at all, and they gave these things thought and have left us much wisdom; I'm not going to pretend I'm better than them by dismissing those things they felt worthy of deep thought.

So, basically, we have all of these prophecies saying that the world is going to come to an end, enter a new age, however they put it. The Mayans left us to believe they thought the end, its begining, or the new world's begining would be on 2012. Many astronomical events are going to happen that year. Several prophecies have predicted violent changes in our polarization that year, Edgar Cayce the sleeping prophet also said this would happen near the last days. The bible says there will be many signs in the stars and the skies. We know meteors of devistating potential are possibly going to hit the earth some few years from now, many predictions also say this. The bible speaks of people going to and fro across the entire face of the earth, of knowledge being abound like never before and people being self righteous and full of themselves in the last days. Speaks of wars and rumours of wars, people constantly saying "safety". That Israel will become a Jewish state again and it's people returning, when all possibility of that seemed far fetched. That there would be storms and earthquakes in divers places such as never before... There are several Catholic prophecies that say that the current pope will be the last before the end of the world.

As far as the Antichrist thing goes. Now some argue that the antichrist is really not a single person, the bible speaks of a spirit of the antichrist falling upon the people of the world, which is where they arrive at that, but there is supposed to be a person that is a world leader who will personify it and lead the world into devistation in the final days.

Is it Obama? I don't know. But if it is a real person and happening now, he's an interesting study. They say he'll appear suddenly. He'll appeal to all people and bring them together. He'll claim to be a peacemaker. Seem to have all the answers. Everyone will love him at first and fall in love with him, that they will be fooled by who he presents himself to be, but that his true ambitions and intents are not shown until later; it was all just a ruse to gain a position of power. He'll be very charasmatic. That he'll come from a Muslim AND possibly Christian or Jewish backround and be able to speak to and appeal to all. The bible also say that he'll come from Rome... and the bible speaks in symbols and of the spirit of nations many times; the Roman empire no longer exists, but we do embody its spirit and ideals and government in the united states.

And, like I was saying, on top of all of that, we also have real scientific facts that should scare us all even if we do dismiss outright that all of that stuff is coincidental superstitious baloney. But, on top of it, it makes it seem even more interesting. Global warming and catastrphic weather. The possibility of polar shifting into another climatical age. Overpopulation. Food shortages decimation of our natural recources. Pollution. Nuclear threats. Mapped and charted asteroids on a possible collision course toward earth. So, we still have all that to worry about in any case...

Is Obama "the antichrist"? I don't know. The things he espouses to be and do all seem great from a secular and political POV, but therein lies the catch: that's what the antichrist is supposed to do at first.

So, I find it all fascinating, and a little bit scary, to be honest. Just all of it. There's just enough weird shit, that it's like, all signs seem to be pointing toward something happening. I don't know. I can dismiss a lot of things, but there's a lot here to think about if you have any benefit of the doubt to there more than we know or there being more than meets the eye to this big honking universe and life. It's extremely interesting, can't see how any one would not find it so somewhat. Whether in a trivial sort of way or otherwise, this much more than many other things we gob attention upon. Yet for some odd reason, people, at large, right now seem to be completely oblivious and dismissive and riduling about every bit of it. They'll read they're horoscopes, go to church, buy up supplies for the Y2K crash, look for aliens and bigfoot and buy up media about it, buy up magazines with predicitions that said 9/11 was forseen after the fact by Nostradamus...

...but, RIGHT NOW, we have all of these huge and major prophecies from unrelated sources, religions, revered historical sages... and they all have things pointing to current events of the current world in common. And people mock and brush off the idea of entertaining or investigating the idea, with any seriousness or type of reasoning, hands down.

Doesn't seem like human nature to me or like their being just better and logical, it's kind of odd and out of character for us and the human race. If something is odd or an anomally, outrageous or not, we like to look into it and disprove it or whatever. Smaller, sometimes incerdibly stupid, trivial stuff has dredged up vasts ammounts more interest than this by the populace at large. But I see this just plain mockery and ridicule and dismissal when this particular subject is brought up, a subject that doesn't seem so odd for people to be curious about, considering...

We tolerate many other things, seems natural for people to be curious about this right now. But, I don't know, it seems inhuman and weird the way people are reacting and not reacting to it all. I'm a humanist first most, and it seems completely natural and normal for people to be interested in a normal fashion about it when all this is going on and considering the existence and universe we live in. Whether it's true or false, people being aware of it and curious seems completely acceptable. To have disdian, ridicule people for wondering about it, and write it off and ignore it completely. That seems like a detatchment from the norm more. People are feeling superior by these days when they just dismiss these sorts of things. To lose our curiousity as to our place in this universe and what's out there, to become intolerant of our right and practicing our freedom to do so, that seems to be a great loss and change of thinking for us as a species to me. To ponder doesn't make you crazy or stupid, all discovery has been made by looking beyond and giving the benefit of the doubt. You've got to have common sense, and not believe the moon is going to eat you because a witch doctor told you so, but that's not the same thing; looking intelligently beyond for possibility's is what it's about, using the brain and imagination we are fortunate to have find and seek the answers; many of our greatest thinkers had spiritual beliefs of some sort and were willing to think beyond the realm of the tangible, they're discoveries were condemned as witchcraft many times. Sheep who were denying and being contemptful and scornful of our right to contemplate our world freely, that's who burned these people at the stakes. Really do believe the widespread scorn of that same freedom today is antihuman and in that same vein because people deserve to think freely and beyond; that's an inalienable right and shouldn't be scorned and told not to act as individuals. That's what we never learn, either way. We have a responsibility to each other to act in everyone's best interests of freedom and respect -- regardless of disagreeing -- if people did that and encouraged taking credit for and having their own beliefs as we'd not have any sorts of histeria or fanatiscm, just mutual and civil respect and discussions. It's this halfthinking, close minded sheep tendency that always gets us into trouble. Whether people are feeling they are only being logical and scientific, but are only pretending to share that belief, it's just as easily manipulated, gullible and dangerous a position to be in as one that believes in spiritual matters. What scares me about that is that they think, just the same as some religions, that if everyone just thought like them that the world would be a better place. It's inhuman, we need the right to ponder our existence and life freely. Think about communism, think about the warnings of Orwell's 1984. It's our freedoms and liberty of making decisions according to them that make life worth living, a state that dictates a belief system is dangerous. Abolishing people's ability to to ponder greater things and the spiritual and supernatural is perhaps more dangerous than not having them. We need to promote responsibility, individual freedom, humanism and compassion. Science is just a tool, it's protecting our own and all other's individual quality of living that's important. But, what I'm saying, is that's seems a great departure and change that's unprecidented at such a large scale, how we are acting in general towards individual freedom and respect and outlooks, and that maybe is a scarier development to me than the possibility of any antichrist. Orwell's 1984 seems very real and definitely possible to me, and perhaps the end of our world would be better than living in the absence of those intrinsic freedoms that have made man special and given him the ability to do the good things he has done. To be all be unfeeling cogs in the machine that we created at first to serve us, that we now only live to serve, that seems a horrible fate to me.

Ugh... lot's of typos in that last comment. Hate that.

Oh yeah, and there's also something in the Bible I think about people being obsessed in the last days with entertainment. And that we will all be able to view an event at the same time all over the world; pretty imaginative for being written thousands of years ago.

And I believe I saw on television the other night that the Hopi indians also predicted the end as 2012?

Here's an interesting link I found, too.
