You will be aware that many people take these beliefs seriously.Tolerance 12:11, 19 April 2008 (EDT)

Hopefully we can enlighten those poor souls and relieve them of unnecessary despair. It's a great shame that people have been psychologically abused into believing such unfounded nonsense in the first place. Jollyfish.gifGenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 12:31, 19 April 2008 (EDT)
You will be aware that many people take these beliefs seriously... Yes, I am sure they do. And I take my beliefs VERY seriously too - come over for a beer one day and we'll talk about the dialectic - but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate some humour about those beliefs. Lighten up - life's too short. PFoster 12:43, 19 April 2008 (EDT)

Teh funniez[edit]

If anyone is particularly attached to that opening paragraph, please speak now or I will personally kill it and replace it with something that hasn't been written by someone who is too easily impressed by 4Chan memes. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 16:26, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

I've been irritated by since I first read it. Totnesmartin 16:41, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Done, and good riddance! LOL!!!!!!!11112222threefour!!! Scarlet A.pngpathetic 17:40, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

"Seven years of trials and tribulations,[edit]

seven plus one, the prophets tell us. Is this the end, the last year of this peace? Or the beginning?"

The series was so-so, but Lance Henriksen is a great actor. Not to mention Mark Snow's score. -- (talk) 21:22, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

Q & A section[edit]

Wtf, this is lame. ħumanUser talk:Human 08:48, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Soooo... this is very xian.[edit]

Do we really want this to be so xian in the opening? Pink mowse.pngGodotThe Peyote God awaits 13:40, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm talking to myself. cool. Anyhow, since we have "eschatology", and end times, maybe we can relocate this to something (but better) like "End times - the christian version". I suck at titles, but someone smarter than me can please think of a nice, straightforward comment? Pink mowse.pngGodotThe Peyote God awaits 13:57, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

The European Economic Community[edit]

... had 6/9 members in the 1970s; while EFTA had 7.

No mention of Malachi. (talk) 17:00, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

I think you need to explain what you're on about. I remember the Seventh Day Adventists I used to know saying the EEC was the antichrist (when they weren't pointing fingers at Pope or Henry Kissinger) but you'll need to expand on the details here. SophieWilderModerator 18:25, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
The section 'The usual American Protestant fundamentalist scenario'

Malachi - the prediction of the Popes. (talk) 18:29, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Malachi's Prophecy of the Popes is a hoax, and isn't about the EEC anyway. SophieWilderModerator 12:00, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
The statement that the EEC (as it then was) had seven members is #wrong, wrong, wrong# - there were either 6 (number of the beast connection) or 9 (then number of the planets, so (resonances/astrology involving then number of planets/associations of number 69/anything else people care to mention) applies. (talk) 18:08, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
When the EEC had seven members, ti was proof of the Roman Empire revived because of the seven heads of the Beast. Then, when it had ten members, it was still proof, because of the ten crowns. Then it went to thirteen, but it was still going to drop back to ten because shut up, reasons. Now it's 27 and I'm not sure how the evangelicals are spinning it now, because I stopped paying attention. Pere Ubu (talk) 22:01, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Any time now...[edit]

You use this as sarcasm, however, Peter has warned us about peopel like you.

3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

All you're doing is fulfilling prophecy by claiming that. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Since snarky atheists (and snarky other-religion-ists) have been around for the entire 1900 or so years since Peter wrote that, and the world hasn't been enveloped in fire, I like our chances. oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 00:14, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
The Lord is not slack? Well, these guys are --> PRABOB! Pere Ubu (talk) 21:56, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Would you mind to explain us how those 1st century ideas developed when the world was thought to be much smaller than now (just the Roman Empire) can work in the far larger one we live in, not to mention an Universe that is humongous beyond understanding, especially compared to what was thought in those years? (talk) 09:18, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
I recall someone comparing my ridicule of the latest prediction of Sept 23rd to how Noah was called a "Kooky old Man" when he insisted the flood would still come (Which the bible never mentions, by the way. After two millenia of failed predictions, it's probably safe to say you people aren't the present day Noah you claim to be.--Spoony (talk) 09:27, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Wait, there's more!. An (of course evangelical) preacher on the radio saying that basically the moral degeneration of these ages (radical feminism -that I'm against, rights equality is one thing and other much different that-, the loss of masculinity, and the disintegration of the traditional family) means the end is nigh. Seriously, have you thought the same was said of the 60's culture and before?. Panzerfaust (talk) 13:47, 13 July 2017 (UTC)

What would happen if[edit]

something was done to the historical Tel Megiddo to defuse the issue? (talk) 21:15, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
