The Antichrist conspiracy theory is an esoteric belief based on biblical prophecies and a Manichean world view: Here the good guys, there the bad guys! Allegedly, a future worldly leader will appear who is seen as the antithesis of Christ and as evil par excellence: the Antichrist. He is imagined as a charismatic personality who will be able to deceive people and usurp world domination. Followers of this narrative believe that the Antichrist is already up to mischief today and uses numerous perfidious means to bring people under his control – such as political intrigue, subliminal messages in films and television or (super nasty!) the spread of homosexuality. It goes without saying that outside of fundamentalist communities, no one takes these claims seriously. Do you?
