Rick Perry is the AntiChrist: The Truth about Christian Politics

Rick Perry's political agenda summed up in 30 seconds: no gays in the military, open celebration of Christmas and prayer in schools, end Obama's "War on Religion" and restore America's "Religious Heritage". Shucks, that sounds pretty awesome for Christians. But wait! Good Christians believe we are in the end of times, and should be watching out for a potential Antichrist. Many people mistakenly believe the Antichrist will seem evil or be anti-religious or atheistic. Not True! ...

Obama, the Antichrist and the 2nd Coming of Jesus: White House Shooter Ortega-Hernandez

This week a student at Idaho State University, Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez, took some shots at the White House, apparently in an attempt to assassinate Obama, whom he saw as the AntiChrist. Soon after, the bizarre video he'd made as a statement of his philosophy and desperate plea to get on the Oprah Show surfaced (you can watch it below). The video raises some interesting topics about American foreign policy, legalization of marijuana, and the dangers ...

The Truth about Global Warming, and why it doesn’t matter.

This week a study of the world's surface temperatures led Richard Muller - a long time, conservative skeptic scientists partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers - finally got him to change his mind. It's big news because he was a champion of those who say "There is no such thing as global warming" and "the earth naturally gets hotter and colder, human beings don't have any impact on the environment." For decades, ...

Why Obama is the Antichrist, and why you should vote for him in 2012 anyway.

Apocalyptic fears may decide 2012 presidential election. The New York Times posted an article a few days ago by Matthew Avery Sutton called "Why the Antichrist Matters in Politics" which deserves comment. My liberal, educated, tolerant and open-minded friends and colleagues often don't understand the need to be critical of or cynical about religion. Why not allow everyone to believe what they want? Surely they aren't hurting anyone? The truth is that the religious right in ...

Transformers 3 Review and the Christian Rapture: Whose side will you be on in the coming apocalypse?

Today I watched the Smallville season 4 finale; then I went to see Transformers 3. It was interesting to find that they both feature the exact same story: a giant force is going to overtake earth and use all the people as slaves. One brave hero must find himself, defeat the threat, while at the same time protecting his romance. What's interesting, however, is the fact that Christianity - while sharing many of the same ...

May 21st is OVER – no rapture, no apocalypse, no Armageddon: Why nothing happened

If God was going to end the world ala Camping's May 21 2011 scenario, which time zone would he start in? It's already 1:20am here in Taiwan - which means the 21st has gone without so much as a storm or earthquake (both of which are common here). So for those of you in the US or Canada who are just waking up - spoiler alert - nothing special happens today. Some awesome things I've discovered online ...

Judgment Day 2011: Is Jesus coming to end the world on May 21st?

The Taiwanese prophecy about Doomsday 2011 being on May 11th has gone unfulfilled; however it's now May 12th and today I've witnessed a freak small tornado and now an ominous thunder and lightning storm. It certainly feels like a foreboding or foreshadowing of evil things to come. So I thought I'd take a moment to write about Harold Camping's prediction that the End of Days will begin on May 21st, 2011, which is sweeping across some parts of ...

10 hours until the end of the world: Taiwan earthquake and tornado May 11 2011

3 No tags Permalink 0

I posted earlier about Master Wang's prediction that a 14.0 earthquake is going to hit Taiwan, causing a giant Tsunami and ripping the country in half (although a 14.0 earthquake in Taiwan would probably flatten cities around the world). The event is prophesied for around 10:45am, which means in about 10 hours I'll either be dead - or I won't. At least one man has already "beat the system" by committing suicide based on Wang's prediction. I'm ...

Earthquake and tsunami scheduled to rip Taiwan in half 5/11/2011 says fortune teller: Armageddon in 2011?

Given the escalating series of natural disasters devastating various portions of the world in ever greater frequency and gravity, as well as Japan's recent earthquake and tsunami disaster, it would be no surprise to me if something similar happened here in Taiwan. In fact for weeks I've been asking my students whether they were prepared for such a natural disaster, whether they trusted the government's ability to respond to catastrophic devastation, and whether they felt ...
