“The Mark of the Beast is your I.P. address”

The Mark of the Beast is your I.P. address, combine that with a phone (pda’s, blackberries) and you have the mark in your hand !

this, and other gems, at Barack Obama the Anti-Christ? under the post Scripture Challenge. the challenge was to list bible passages that directly support the theory that Obama is the anti-Christ. 82 comments followed, with barely a handful of scripture and more insane theories than a weekend with Oliver Stone and a keg of Red Bull.

the biblical scholar quoted above also refers to Nostradamus as a prophet, “in this world to point us to the truth and show us the way.” riiiight.

originally, I was going to write about the bizarre run-in I had with an elderly in-law. somehow, everyone else had cleared out of the room for a few minutes, and in the quiet she started asking me what I thought about Obama. “oh, it’s an interesting race,” I said. “He’s a muslim, you know,” she replied. “No, no he’s not,” I objected. I explained to her that he proclaims to be a Christian, that he has attended a Christian church for years and years, and that he went to a “muslim” school in Indonesia simply because that was the best local option. “Well, he has a muslim background…”  You can imagine how awkward the silence was for the next few minutes.
