Do you believe in prophecy? The Bible as literal truth? Armageddon? The Rapture? The return of the Da'jaal,? Or the creation of a worldwide Caliphate as a harbinger of the end of time? More important, if presented with compelling evidence, would you believe that there are, today, determined and powerful forces actively conspiring to bring about these cataclysmic events within our lifetime?

Religion - Political Aspects - Conspiracies - End of the World
In his provocative new book, Racing Toward Armageddon, Michael Baigent, bestselling author and one of the most controversial religious theorists of our time, turns his keen attention to modern-day Jerusalem and its increasingly important role in global affairs, exploring yet another of his explosive theories: that hard-liners within the three great Abrahamic religions, many of whom hold positions of enormous influence in government, industry, and the military worldwide, are working to hasten our end as prophesied in each of their texts and traditions of faith.
Exposing these forces, the muyths upon which many of their beliefs are based, the stealth actions they have been taking for decades, and the insidious and potentially devasting effect they are having upon the social, cultural, and spiritual fabric of our society, Baigent poses the pressing question: Can we really afford to remain oblivious much longer?
