Other measures -- annual expenditures on research and development, numbers of research scientists and engineers -- confirm the disparity between populations and scientific research.This situation leads to some hard questions: Is Islam an obstacle to modern science?The whole concept of an Islam Antichrist is fantasy.PROPHECY DEPOT: Does Daniel Debunk the Assyrian Antichrist?So those who fall into the trap of making an Islamic Beast might actually help create the platform for the Western Beast Antichrist to stand on and rise to power and take over the world as the world’s savior that saved us from Islam. Believing that Islam is the Beast system is not at all logical.It is obvious that Islam with all its laws will never be accepted by the decadent West.I am not saying that he will be Assyrian, I do not know his decent but it is also not out of the question that he will be raised in the area of Assyria.Nevertheless, even if he were Assyrian that would not make him a Muslim.
There are two primary arguments against the Eastern leg being the leg from which the Antichrist comes: the “Historical” and the “Prophetical”.Even if the Antichrist is Assyrian by birth it does not mean that he is Muslim or that he had been living in that area prior to the days when the world headquarters is moved to the area of Babylon.For example, Some Americans call Obama an African but by Africans he would be called an American. He once lived in other nations but now he resides in America.Lately there has been a whole lot of teachers getting on the Antichrist will come from Islam and that Islam is the Beast world system bandwagon.Apparently painting Antichrist horns on the obvious evil system of our time sells books but is is good theology?
Oddly the book of Daniel, which seemingly issues the most pivotal prophecy regarding the origin of this personage, does not once mention the Hebrew word Ashur, or Ashshur, which is translated as Assyria, or Assyrian.
