06-06-06

Well, here it is 3:33pm (really!), half the mark of the beast (Mountain Standard Time, no Daylight Savings) on June 6, 2006 and the Apocalypse still has not arrived. Maybe the Beast is on Eastern Time, or Greenwich Mean....

Anyway, I scoured Daniel and Revelation for what time zone the Beast works out of but it must be buried in the Bible Code somewhere I can't find it. Maybe its because I'm using the NIV and not KJV. Damn Protestant "modern dynamic equivalency paraphrase translations"! No wonder no one knows diddly about the end times any more. If DaVinci had used the "Good News For Modern Man" Bible we might have had to cast Adam Sandler and Roseanne as the leads in "The DaVinci Code". BUT, that's not what I'm blogging about. Here are some things I DID manage to find hidden deep within the codes of the Biblical text using the latest number/letter crunching software that dredges up every permutation of numerical/alphabetical assignments in Hebrew, Greek, English, Latin, Aramaic and "Dude"
(yes, there IS a "Dude Bible"....) Here are the Marks of the Beast that I have discovered:

The Beast is definitely on Eastern time. I know this because The Beast was my son's nickname when he was little. ;-)

The original was funny enough, but your speculations about Bible translations make it even wilder. I did hear about the Dude Bible, aka the Surfer's Bible ("Dude. In the beginning, there was, like, nada"). Not sure which translation would best suit The Beast -- probably the Good News, which has managed to obscure all references to him pretty well. (Not my beast, THAT Beast.)

Offspring-san, your Papa-san doesn't articulate his personal cogitations in such a manner unless he is making a point. The point here being, those who take stuff like "The Davinci Code" seriously and sit around Starbucks pontificating about conspiracy theories and "real actual factual historical facts" that don't exist in reality, are more than likely theologically and historically educated on the level of those to whome the "Dude Bible" was translated for.... dude. (They might of course be smart about some things, but that does not make one smart about all things. I would not presume to try to engineer a computer chip, so why does an engineer think his education qualifies him to critique and assess the veracity of the Church and Church history based on one fiction novel?) Such is the nature of parody or sarcasm...often it points up the ridiculousness of what people are thinking or doing.
