some wacky Revelations 13 interpretations

"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666" (Rev. 13:16-18).

isn't is all so easy to come up with conspiracies and find patterns?

anyways some of it helps understand them reggae songs..

Ari, are you saying that a conspiracy has existed for 2000 years, from Paul, to Romans, to various christina nations, to Cheney and to White Aryans? And, this conspiracy has proclaimed the divinity of Christ, and hushed up his Rabbinic background? Did I get it right?

Your metaphor of Paul "opening" is inapt. Religion is not confined to a room where one man (like Paul) controls ingess & egress. Ideas flow from lots of passionate people to lots of receptive, clamoring audiences.

Sony, that wasn't exactly my point.

Your point that Paul didn't control the flow of Christianity is not true -- who do you think influenced modern Christianity more: the Jews who sought converts among Jews, or Paul & his mission that sought Christians from the masses of non-Jews?

Bush and Cheney continue the tradition of warping the words of a peace-loving healer & prophet (using much of Paul's commentary) into validation for 'destroying the evil men' and 'the death penalty' while simultaneously protecting the rights of unborn babies.

Maybe you don't see any conspiracies in the Catholic structure itself.

That's fine, you're probably right, and I'm probably paranoid -- despite the Priest sex scandals and so on.

It was also fun to hop on Andrew's Bible spin w/conspiracies & #'s.
