Prophacey and 9/11

You may have noticed yesterday in our local paper an ad about a event being held at one of our local churches. It is about prophecy and scheduled for today, the 9th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. I find it amuzing, apparently they don't require admission fee, but you can bet your bottom dollar that money will come up. I think it is a big scam targeted at the gullible. Ever since the Crucifixion there have been predictions that Christ will return. And every time it doesn't happen, the target date has been turn further out. This has been going on for 2000 years and more. A lot of religions have started based on prophecy, Jehovah Witnesses, is just one example that dates from the 19th century. The modern teachings in evangelical churches started with an English preacher in the early 19th Century. He incorporated the something called the rapture. He made this up by cherry picking passages from the bible and then making a story out of it. They use the number 666 as the number of the anti Christ. The real origin of that number is from John of Patmos and is related to Hebrew numerology. It really refers to the Emperor Nero and nothing modern. But people being people, they will believe anything whether there is evidence for it or not. The tragedy and shame is that they are using a real dark day in our recent history to peddle their tripe.
