I've noticed a lot of action on other forums re Bible prophecy and end times. co-incidently (or not!) many Muslims believe in the imminent return of the '12th Imam' or Al-Mahdi, an Islamic Messiah. I've read one theory that the Mahdi is the same as the Christian anti-Christ, as both will rule for 7 years, make war on Jews and Christians, etc. http://www.raptureready.com/soap/ua2.html in addition, there is no doubt there are many earthquakes and troubles around the world, many prophesied in the 24th chapter of Matthew in the Bible. do we find credence in such 'non-scientific' speculation?
