    The author of the book of Revelation is pretty much unknown, correct?

    John of Patmos. And its probably the most frequently misinterpreted book in the history of mankind. It probably should have omitted from the canon due to its unique genre and its frequent misinterpretation.

    Just out of curiosity, which 'original texts' are you referring to?

    For the OT, the Hebrew and the Greek LXX. For the NT, the Greek. The term Sheol is mistranslated all over the place in the OT. The NT passages dealing with the afterlife are likewise full of mistranslation, or frank insertion of language that does not belong to the orignal.. I do not suggest malicious intent on the part of the translators. They were simply translating the texts based on their preconceived notions about the afterlife, rather than using the Jewish and Patristic understandings to provide context.

    I don't believe in ghosts but I do believe in the existence of demons.

    I believe in ghosts. I don't know if it's a ghost, but my gf lost her DL. She searched everywhere. The other day, she opens the closet door and it is laying right there in the middle of the closet. [​IMG]

    Being a Christian basher is one of the coolest things to be on the internet.

    I find atheists too annoying to call myself one. I find "please give money to our insane church where we speak in tongues and wrestle snakes" to be less annoying than "you're a moron because you have faith." Science damn it!
