I’ve decided to share an e-mail I received recently, for the interest/entertainment of readers:
Dear Prof. McGrath,
I am writng to you because from what I have read about you on the Internet you are interested in biblical prophecy in terms of research and verification.
I have identified the two witnesses that are mentioned in The Bible in Revelation 11:3. The story is fairly long and detailed so I would like to say that I would be interested in talking to you about the two witnesses so that there would be an academic record of my accounting of the two witnesses.
The two witnesses were John Lennon and Paul McCartney. I do realize that this probably seems a bit out of the ordinary but I can prove that what I am saying here is correct.
I have also identified the prophecies of the two witnesses and they are also very radical in nature. The two witnesses came and prophesied about events that are related to Revelation 12 and 13.
I would like to be interviewed by either you or a member of your staff, etc. with the goal being that my accounting of the two witnesses can have some academic grounding. I am sure that once I fully explain the two witnesses that you will be unable to prove my accounting of them wrong. I would be happy if you would agree to interview me personally or if you wanted to have a student conduct the interview. I really have no preference. I would also like to come and talk about the two witnesses to one or several of your classes that you are currently teaching.
I am not interested in receiving any compensation for the interview or for coming to give a presentation to any of the classes you are currently involved with. I simply wish to make the prophecies of the two witnesses known in an academic arena. It is what I believe that I am supposed to do at this point.
I’m sure that you must have some questions before you make a decision. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have either through email or by phone. If you wish for me to call you please send me a phone number that you can be reached at. I live in the Chicago, IL area and would also be willing to travel to your campus to talk to you as well.
Well, I know that the content of this email is fairly out of the ordinary. However, I am correct in what I am saying. I only wish to convey to you what I know know about the two witnesses. It is quite astounding, really, what they did and how they did it. The prophecies that they delivered are quite profound as well.
Please write back and let me know if you are willing to hear me out, in whatever forum you feel most comfortable with.
All I have to add is that fans of Ringo Starr and George Harrison should be outraged…
