Al Gore Is The AntiChrist

Update 3-2-07: Holy Sh*t! This is getting a little weird. ;-)


The Beast from the Sea: And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.

Revelation 13:1


The Seven Heads had the names of the Seven Deadly Sins: Luxuria (extravagance, later lust), Gula (gluttony), Avaritia (avarice/greed), Acedia (sloth), Ira (wrath), Invidia (envy), and Superbia (pride/hubris) which is the worst of the Seven.

The ten horns and crowns have generally been interpreted as representing world leaders.

I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;

Revelation 13:3


The fatal wound was to the head of Hubris and refers to Gore's "loss" of the Presidency. Let's recall what happened to Gore after the 2000 election. He kind of fell into a funk that could be described as a sort of political death:


From cnn

He had been for eight years the Vice President of the most powerful nation in the world but lost it all. Certainly, that would be consistent with the imagery of his head of Hubris being fatally wounded. But it has healed now, and Gore is full of even more Hubris than ever before. He has his movie which has gained him much (ill-gotten) acclaim with a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize as well as an Academy Award. And now he is organizing a "Live Aid" type of concert for this summer devoted to "stopping" Global Warming.

They worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.

It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.

Revelation 13:4-8


I'm not sure about the forty-two months, or 3.5 years, and when it actually starts. If it begins at the general release date of the movie, June 2, 2006, then the 3.5 years is up in November 2009.

(You know that when communists and capitalists agree on something then it must be true. ;-) In fact there is growing awareness. ;-) )

If Gore gets his way then he will essentially be given authority over every tribe and peoople and tongue and nation. And all who dwell on earth will be forced to follow him and his Global Warming teachings. Everyone who rejects the laws of Nature in favor of Gore's Impending Disaster will be removing their names from the book of life. The Global Warming Alarmists are committing the Deadly Sin of Hubris to think that we can really induce or stop large climatic changes. (first said here)

The Beast from the Earth: Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

Revelation 13:11-15


The name of this beast from the earth that the beast from the sea has given the power to perform "great signs" is clearly the movie An Inconvenient Truth. Imagine how John who wrote the book of Revelation would interpret his visions as real beings when he might have actually seen visions from the film. He had no way of knowing that mankind would have created such realistic "graven images." This is how visions usually work. We don't always know exactly how to interpret them because of our limited knowledge at the time.

As we are beginning to see any of us who do not accept the "great signs" presented by the beast of the earth (the film) are being severely criticized, ridiculed, and otherwise character-assassinated. Now we've even been ridiculously and maliciously equated with the "Holocaust Deniers." If that isn't a blasphemous abuse of the Jewish People and their trials then I don't know what is. In fact, it seems to be very consistent with the picture presented in the book of Revelation.

And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is 666.

Revelation 13:16-18


If Gore and the AGW Devils win the "debate" about the future of the world we all will be required to accept an AGW mark in order to function in the world.


Well, apologies for cutting off abruptly. I just can't stomach the further exploration of these possibilities. But I do want to say that if I mysteriously disappear or even die then it's probably because I've exposed Al Gore for what he really is. ;-)

And that is today's (satiric) sermonette.

in ascii code, all letters in the string "al gore" adds up to 666.

Fun post. He's one of your own, that is, Tennessee's native son, isn't he? ;-)

Who'dve expected that pasty, doughy blob to be the anti-Christ? What a great disguise!

When does he take his rightful place in infamy in the Bad Seeds sidebar of the blog?

hi bab,

ah, I was about to say the same... here are the details

In ASCII code, "Al Gore" = 97 + 108 + 32 + 103 + 111 + 114 + 101 = 666, therefore Al Gore is the anti-Christ.

Even though I sympathize a lot with your concerns what comes into my mind immediately is a German saying: Mal den Teufel nicht an die Wand which means: don't paint the devil to the wall. It's supposed to say if you predict bad things will happen, they will happen.

America has really impressed me last year with the mid term election. It's a democracy, not a monarchy - as I had almost come to believe. Nobody is given authority over every tribe and peoople and tongue and nation - we have the power to object, and can chose not to follow. If you ask me, the easiest way to handle with nonsense is to ignore it. Why do TV stations and newspapers keep on featuring crap? Because people buy it!

Give the nation a better way to deal with their anxiety about what the future might bring. At the onset of the 21st century it seems to me, many become aware that our civilization has caused a gap between humankind and the rest of nature, and we are on the loosing side. Nature can survive without us. But we can't survive without nature. Evolution has not prepared us for an environment that changes so rapidly. But its ourselves that we change our world so fast that we do no longer 'fit' to it. And who's the fittest to survive then? We weren't meant to work 20 hours a day sitting in front of a screen and live from fast food. We weren't meant to reduce our happiness to a free table at Starbucks, no traffic jam on the highway, and a SUV with air condition. Why have we become a Prozac nation?

It is my believe that many people sense a mismatch between what could provide happiness and inner peace, and what our civilization tells us is happiness. They are looking for a way to change the way the world runs, and if somebody gives them a goal to direct their anger and frustration they are more than happy to do so. If you don't want them to follow Al Gore, it's not sufficient to proclaim him the Anti-Christ. Give them alternatives!

Gurb. Sorry for the blah. I have to many friends who are on the edge of being clinically depressive (both sides of the edge). It just bothers me. Best,

B.

Might want to dial back those auxilliary antidepresants, Rae Ann.

Rae Ann said...

bab, thanks, and actually, I had linked to that in the last Revelation quotation (but it is easy to miss that there is a link there).

dh, yes, unfortunately that is true that he is from TN. Just another part of the great disguise. ;-) And thanks, I do need to add him to that list.

anonymous, thanks, that's interesting though rather anti-Semitic. I suspect that article was written in the same satirical vein as mine, however.

Bee, I completely understand where you're coming from, and I admire the practicality of German thinking. I'm not sure how familiar you are with Revelation and all that, but it's kind of an American fascination to try to "plug in" factors into the symbolism as if it were a formula. For my purposes, it is more of a game than a serious exercise.

On a very *symbolic* level I find the parallels between Gore and the imagery of the Book interesting, but I don't believe that he will become a world dictator in he political sense. It's more in a social sense that he has "duped" many people into believing that AGW is the Truth. Widespread deception is evil whether it comes from a President or an environmentalist wacko.

I've tried to offer alternatives on the small scale of what individuals can do. I don't quite have the power or influence to compete with Gore though. ;-) And unfortunately, those who do have the power to compete and offer alternatives are severely criticized and ridiculed.

Anyway, sorry that you're feeling down. I know clinical depression intimately and it sucks. Actually, it seems we humans might be in the midst of a big evolutionary step. We are wrestling with our awareness of our powers and weaknesses and what to do about them. Well, sorry if I'm just blathering on. ;-)

cip, lol, I'll choose to take that as a compliment for creativity. ;-)

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hi Rae Ann,

It is good you're voicing your opinion. It makes a difference.

Sorry to hear.

Wishing you lots of sunshine,

Hi Rae Ann -

I came across a good article on Gore and the global warming myth. Here's the link:

http://phillymag.com/articles/science_al_gore_is_a_greenhouse_gasbag


Among the things I really like about the article is that the scientist (a University of Pennsylvania professor named Bob Giegengack) has scientific credibility and, more than anything else, political credibility because he voted for Gore. One of the best lines is, as Gore on the Oprah show is showing the collapse of a polar ice shelf, the scientist says, “What he’s (Gore) doing is no less than the scare tactics used by people like Karl Rove.” Hard to blame a line like that on a Republican or conservative.

And what can we do about global warming? All that we want, yet: “See,” Gieg says, “the thing he doesn’t mention is that there are 2.4 billion people in India and China who have launched a campaign that will increase their energy consumption by a factor of 10. No matter what we do. If we somehow cut our CO2 emissions in half, you wouldn’t be able to measure the difference because of the role played by India and China.

“It’s over. If CO2 is the problem, we’ve already lost.”


It's definitely worth the read. Enjoy your weekend.

dhammett & Rae Ann,

The professor in dhammett's linked article has some sensible things to say, as well as a quote from Gore that Rae Ann might like about "global warming leading to a nature walk through the Book of Revelations."

He doesn't have much climate credibility in my book though, because he is quoted as saying several things which don't match the facts. Nor is his expertise (geology) very relevant to the questions at issue in global warming - global warming is about radiative transfer and its feedbacks, and rocks hardly even care about that.

Another problem with his geological perspective is that it's not actually relevant to human decision making. On the geological time scale, continents rise and fall, species, genera and phyla originate and become extinct. Earth will no doubt survive global warming. So will life, and very likely, the human race. That doesn't mean that you or anybody has the unlimited right to screw it up for my grandchildren.

He is right about one thing though, even though he is a senile old man who graduated from high school at least four years before your correspondent: CO2 is not the only environmental problem we have.

Kea said...

There are climate scientists who think Al Gore's movie was accurate. I agree. Whatever one might think of the man (and he is a politician, after all) facts are facts. Hard facts.

dhammett said...

Well, I suppose we can line up experts on both sides and have a p*ssing contest about it. Who's to say whose experts are right?

CIP and Kea - Here's another link for you. Perhaps you'd concede that the writer (Timothy Ball)and his secondary source (Richard Lindzen) are a little better qualified on the subject.

http://www.canadafreepress.com/2007/global-warming020507.htm

The only hard fact is that nobody really knows, at this point, all the ins and outs of global warming. The water level of the ocean, depending of course upon whom one were to ask, has been rising by 1.8 millimeters per year.

http://www.grida.no/climate/ipcc_tar/wg1/428.htm

We're talking about a measurement less than the thickness of a nickel. Pardon me if I don't panic just yet.

Even in Wikipedia, the on-line encyclopedia where one can create one's own facts, there is no concensus about global warming and its effects on the change in oceanic water levels. The article, found here, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_level_rise) is riddled with phrases like "scientists do not know" and "uncertainty" and "if."

But the issue has been politicized beyond belief. For Gore and his ilk to promote it as the end of the world is fearmongering. And I resent my country spending billions of dollars every year and potentially crippling itself in the global economy (re: Kyoto accord) because of what is at best uncertain science and at worst a hoax. And sorry, but I'm always suspicious when an organization like the UN jumps on the bandwagon. It's not like they've had the best interests of the US at heart for the past, oh I don't know, 25 years or more.

Perhaps Mr. Gore should take care of the internet he created and direct his attention to the next big crisis...something like Y3K.

Rae Ann said...

Thanks, dh.

As for scientific "facts" I will always recall that as an elementary schoolchild we were taught that *unequivocally* the large dinosaurs like the brontosaurus had to live in the shallow waters along coastlines and lakes because their bodies, according to the known "facts" of the day, would be absolutely unable to support their own weight without the bouyancy of water. This was taught as an absolute fact and was "supported" by all kinds of "scientists" who were completely sure that they were correct. (and who poo-pooed anyone who disagreed with them)

Of course, this is only an anecdotal story, but it's important to pay attention to such things because history has a way of repeating itself. There were scientists who were absolutely certain that it would be impossible to land a man on the moon. There have been scientists armed with "facts" who said that man could never fly around the world. They have used "hard facts" that said the human genome could never be mapped. They had "hard facts" that said an atomic bomb/energy wouldn't work. And as little as ten years ago I read articles by "scientists" who said the common person would never have or need a computer processor with a speed of one gig or more. The examples of the "hard facts" being wrong are abundant.

So, as much as I like and respect science, it's not always right. Those "hard facts" aren't always absolute. And I'm fortunate to have lived long enough to see so many examples of this.

Kea, how is it you can accept the possibility of a changing "c" but not accept that many other (climate, etc.) calculations might also be flawed?

Of course, I'm not a scientist. I'm just a layperson (a "hillbilly from Tennessee even) with limited technical knowledge, but I do know when something doesn't make logical sense.

Sorry if that is offensive or even ridiculous to people with a string of letters after their names, but I'll have to say this: Over the span of my life I've been right more often than wrong about the things that don't add up.

Sometimes the experience of living in the world is more valuable and educational than all the number-crunching of those who try to tell us 'how it is.' And in this way, it seems that many scientists are just the same as politicians. They don't really care about the truth and reality; they only care about their reputations and future funding.

It's amazing to me that the same people who claim to be so open-minded and 'scientific' are also the ones who try to squash debate about what is really true.

Gore's Global Warming Secret

You'll never guess what initially inspired Al Gore's "temperature" mania - the one that's raised our tempers.
Well, Gore is from Tennessee where you can hear Bible belt preachers warning about "Hell fire" in the next life.
And Gore, concerned about this life, is surrounded by those who also know about the prediction in Revelation (chapter 16) of the coming time when a change in the sun will result in humans being "scorched with great heat"!
It wouldn't be convenient if folks were to discover that Gore, a liberal, was influenced by the handbook closely associated with Christian fundamentalists!
If Tennessee fundy preachers could look at the same predictions-packed apocalyptic book and stretch forward in time some future events, Gore could surely do the same thing and stretch forward the "great heat" and turn it into cold cash.
All of us are well aware of the incredible influence that the Gore-orrhea plague has had on the whole world including the White House!
But Gore's overlooked another Bible verse which says that "there is nothing hid that shall not be revealed."
The real "inconvenient truth" is that the SS Al Gore is now stuck in ice - and what we need is a Gorebreaker!
