    I actually am quite fond of Saint Neron Caesar because his name = 666 and so much evil attributed to him wasn't commanded by him, he just allowed the herd to blame and kill Christians because it takes more effort and pain to oppose the herd to protect the despised minority at the time, which doesn't make it okay what he did, but doesn't mean he was the monster people say he was either.

    He never actually ordered the death of Peter the first Pope , or Paul, or countless others. Nero actually would cover curtains and hide his face from seeing gladiators, saying he didn't like watching men slice each other up, which many other Roman Emperors did enjoy, and the feeding of Christians to wild animals wasn't Nero's thing either, the structure where that was done hadn't been built yet.

    Nero never ordered the boat his mother got into be built to fall apart, and the people that killed her when she reached shore were not doing so under his orders, but Nero may have intentionally not done what he could have to stop it, being the cause of his being responsible for her death allegations.

    His final words before his assisted suicide guy ran him through was that a good artist died inside him.

    He was devoted to being an artist , singer, and athlete, not a leader, which lead to him having next to no control of his Empire, so I'll give it to him that he sucked at being a leader, but the terrible atrocities attributed to him were not his choice, he was less bloodthirsty than many other Emperors, possibly not bloodthirsty at all, and his playing the fiddle while the city burned was like people playing violins while titanic sank. It was to raise morale and lift spirits, keep people and himself calm.

    Also, he never caused the fire. He had so many disasters take place, the best thing for Christians to do is blame everything on the guy whose name equals 666 , who was leader at the time. Best thing for Romans to do is also blame everything on him.

    Then again, I got that all from an article in a magazine that was 100% unbiased, inspired by God to be free of error, so don't take it with a grain of salt, and accept it as Gospel truth! And let's all young and old burn incense to Neron Caesar 666 :D.

    Do you have favorite person in history that may have qualified as an Antichrist, with a very small "a" perhaps? :p.

    Mao was the most successful regarding his kill count and craziness such as genocide of sparrows and other bizarre behaviors, while he is worshipped to this day as a Deified Messiah God by countless people who paint his image on the walls of businesses so that police and the regime will bless them, and still on Chinese money last I saw, not once were his crimes covered in history classes I attended growing up.

    When you have the greatest crimes and kill count attributed to you in history, and that kind of veneration after your death, that certainly is a tough thing to pull off.

    An Antichrist who brings about peace, unity, and ends poverty and suffering, and doesn't kill people, is compassionate, doesn't order anything cruel , or no oppression or persecution, is the type of Antichrist I would have a clean conscience promoting or being.

    I'm sure those kind of Antichrists exist as well, because I have met some sweethearts that reject Christ too. Antichrist doesn't necessarily mean violent sociopath.

    Great scene from a great film. Damien: Omen 2 was actually one of the rare times when a sequel was better than the original IMO, it adds some depth to the character as we see Damien 'coming of age' and initially struggling to accept his identity. Being the son of Satan is a bigger deal than coping with an acne breakout!

    In the novel, "The Brothers Karamozov", by Fyoder Dostoyevsky, the middle brother, "Ivan", has a long conversation with 'satan'. It's one of the best and most elaborate depictions of 'satan' in literature. And it's been my favorite for many years. The whole conversation is amazing. The whole novel is amazing. Each of the characters embody a classic philosophical world view as they all find themselves confronting the dawn of modernism. "Ivan" is the intellectual brother, representing logic, reason, atheism, and so on. So you can just imagine the conversation he might have with 'satan'. :)

    I suppose this man may qualify. What is an antichrist exactly?
