    I wouldn't put too much stock in to eschatological nonsense. The mark of the beast is referring to the number of the beast in Revelations. This is thought to be a specific person, a world leader who will demand worship.

    Interesting b/c a carbon atom has 6 electrons 6 neutrons and 6 protons. So if the antichrist had a name like say, Carbon then that would indeed be a fulfilled prophecy as per the 666 but not necessarily the name "Carbon" itself......just saying.

    Yes Sir General Carbon Sir.:D

    666 was a numerological chiffre for one of the 1st century Roman emperors (Nero and/or Domitian), and the Revelation of John is but an oblique way of talking about the situation of early Christianity without instantly drawing the attention of the persecutors maligned therein.

    Keep in mind that Christianity started out as a doomsday cult that believed the End of Days was at hand, not thousands of years removed but about to commence right there and then, within the lifetime of the apostles.

    I had to look up chiffre. In English, you might use cipher.

    I agree that Christ Jesus was an apocalyptic preecher, I however would not reffer to it not as a cult but a sect of Judism (any refference to a cult is an obvious ad-hominem attack).

    They did believe that the end of days was at hand, however one can not infer that because they believed this and it did not happen that Christ's claim that he would return was false. If Jesus's claims were true (that he was the Messiah) and he made it quite clear that even He did not know the day of his return, than one should only infer that the apostles were mistaken to hold any kind of a belief that they knew Christ would return in thier lifetime. After all, "a day can be like a thousand years to the Lord", which is why I have such trouble understanding YEC's who believe that Jesus will return (according to those contridictory belief's Jesus already came back).

    As for your first paragraph, I am interested in knowing how you justify coming to your conclusion that John was simply speaking of the surrent state of Christianity? I know that he was being cryptic by drawing on biblical symbols to refference events, but how do you account for times, world wide catastrophy and the end to all evil?

    There is nothing intrinsically derogatory about the term "cult", even though popular usage might suggest as much.

    He was basically saying "though you are persecuted now, fear not, for your suffering heralds the End of Days and the World to Come".
    It's basically a re-affirmation for believers to stick to their faith no matter what, even if it means risking ostracisement and death. For the faithful will be rewarded while the evil persecutors will be brought to justice - and in the end, even death will die.
    It's just the sort of pep talk you give to a bunch of frightened followers, vindicating their beliefs and promising that they will be rewarded if they keep them.

    In fact, the beast prophesied in Revelation already appeared in the year 661 CE, 666 years after the birth of Christ!

    He was the one responsible for corrupting Islam and leading it down the wrong path.

    (And the "second beast" was a successor.)
