(I John 4:3) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (I John 2:18) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many Antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. (19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. (20) But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. (21) I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. (22) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (II John 1:7) For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist.
I am an Antichrist, by these biblical definitions. I personally believe that jesus christ was a myth, created out of several stories about the many "christs" which did live and preach in the time of the first century. Also, I am NOT a christian, and I do not accept that jesus is christ, or lord, my savior, or any other type of supreme entity. I am in fact ATHEIST, and use science and technology to replace religion and mysticism in my life.
However, keep in mind that because I am Anti-christ, does not mean that I am anti-religion. I am in fact a VERY religious person. It is a typical human fallacy to label everyone as either for or against, either friend or enemy. The truth is not always black and white. My beliefs run logically counter to christian beliefs. In this sense, it can be said that I am Anti-christian. However, when christians speak of Atheists as being Anti-christian, they usually mean that the Atheists have some sort of loathing or hatred towards christians. This is FAR from the truth. Personally, I adopt a live and let live attitude towards christians. Unless questioned, I typically do not mention that I am an Atheist or Anti-christian, except perhaps to close friends who already accept me and know me. This is due in part to the fact that being an Atheist in this country is socially unacceptable!
As an Antichrist, I often do try to convert my close friends whenever possible, to either becoming Anti-christian, or Atheist, or both! Although this statement may appear contradictory to my previously mentioned live and let live attitude, I feel it is important to try to help people I am close to. I however do not try to convert people at large. I look at christianity as a sickness. If for example, my friend was an alcoholic, I would try to help him see the light, but I am not a crusader against alcoholism, just as I am not a crusader against christ. I only become outwardly vocal about my Atheist and Antichristian beliefs when I see christianity encroaching upon other peoples rights in matters which are NOT any of its business, such as education and government.
Please note that after maintaining antichrist dot net now for many years, and after receiving tremendous volumes of hate in my email, my general opinion of christians has completely changed. Today I have very little regard for them, and I work passionately to destroy the very meme (the thought virus known as the "christ meme") which causes their abhorrent behavior.
First Apostle James
One might imagine the quote came from a very good and just person. However, it is an excerpt from a statement made to the court on February 17th 1992 by Jeffrey Dahmer, the notorious cannibal and serial killer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. These as well as many other reasons are why I am an Antichrist. Here are more examples of christian morality and decency:(1 Tim 1:15)
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
(1 Tim 1:16)
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
(1 Tim 1:17)
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
A survey conducted by the Roper Organization found that behavior deteriorated after the born again experience. While only 4% of respondents said they had driven intoxicated before being born again, 12% had done so after conversion. Similarly, 5% had used illegal drugs before conversion, 9% after. Two percent admitted to engaging in illicit sex before salvation; 5% after. Freethought Today, September 1991, p. 12.
Given all these, Science is the preferred "religion" to follow. All scientific viewpoints are treated with skepticism by the scientific community. Acknowledged experts in a particular field must always provide evidence for their theories. Science relies on reproducible, independently confirmed results. New theories which are incompatible with a large body of existing scientific knowledge will be subject to especially close scrutiny, but if the work is sound and the experimental data reproducible, the new theories will displace the old. For example, both special relativity and quantum mechanics were highly controversial, and required that a lot of existing scientific theory be thrown out. Yet both were relatively quickly accepted after extensive experiments proved their correctness. Pseudo-scientific theories such as creationism are rejected not because they are controversial, but because they simply do not stand up to basic scientific scrutiny. There is even a scientific study which explains why religious belief is spread from person to person. In the theory of memetics, "memes" (sets of ideas which can propagate themselves between human minds) are transferred from person to person, much the same way genes are transferred to offspring. Some Scientists view religions as sets of particularly successful parasitic memes, which spread by encouraging their hosts to convert others. Some memes avoid destruction by discouraging believers from questioning doctrine, or by using peer pressure to keep one-time believers from admitting that they were mistaken. Some religious memes even encourage their hosts to destroy hosts controlled by other memes. Of course, in the memetic view there is no particular virtue associated with successful propagation of a meme. Religion is not a good thing because of the number of people who believe it, any more than a disease is a good thing because of the number of people who have caught it."Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science?"
