Bill Gates is the Antichrist Ever since Microsoft was founded, Bill Gates has gained power over the people of the world by winning a monopoly in the computer-software industry. From the assistance Microsoft gave in the development of the personal computer, to the virtual monopoly that Windows 95 now has on most computers all over the world; Microsoft has controlled a major portion of the computer industry. In his repeated conquests over his competitors, Gates has left an increasingly obvious amount of evidence that proves that he is the fourth and final antichrist. Most of this evidence comes from Gates\' computer products and is referred to in Revelations. This evidence may have been left on purpose, or was a careless mistake by the founder of Microsoft. Like the other men who have been considered antichrists, Gates has attempted to rule the world. The only difference between Gates and his predecessors is that he is trying to rule the world through computers, not through military force. ASCII(American Standard Code for Information Interchange) code is a system of keeping track of letters, numbers and characters on a computer. When Bill Gates and IBM decided to use ASCII code in the IBM Personal Computer, many people didn\'t know what computers were, or care what ASCII code was. Many people who did know what ASCII code was didn\'t think that Bill Gates was evil. Today, now that more people use computers regularly, Bill Gates\' evil secrets have been revealed to the public through the Internet and anti-Microsoft activists. "Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man : His number is 666." (Revelation 13:18) Bill Gates\' full name is William Henry Gates III. If the ASCII codes of the letters in "BILLGATES" are added, plus three for the "III" in his name, then the sum is 666 (antichrist.txt). B I L L G A T E S 3 66+73+76+76+71+65+84+69+83+3 = 666 "Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast" refers to computer programmers and others who have knowledge in computers. Gates most likely did not expect for the people in his industry to divulge his secret identity to the public, but an increasing number of computer users have found and advertised the truth about him. Most computers sold today come with Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. Many people don\'t buy computer software unless it is designed specifically for Windows. If a company decides to make a program for an operating system other than Windows, then they will probably not sell as many copies of their software than if they had made a Windows version. Most companies want to make a large profit, so they are going to make Windows compatible software. "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads. And that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Revelation 13:16 and 13:17) The Microsoft and Windows symbols are the "mark or name of the beast," because they effectively prevent the sale of products for other systems. "Thus he said: The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on Earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole Earth, Trample it and break it in pieces." Gates\' Microsoft is the fourth beast, with its significant power of money. Microsoft has "devoured the Earth" by gaining a monopoly on the software industry, so that it could "Trample it and break it to pieces" if it felt the desire. Bill Gates can raise the prices of his software at any time because there is very little competition to prevent this. In the past few years, Microsoft has bought many smaller companies who produced products which they wanted. Gates probably didn\'t want to spend the money to develop competing products, so he bought the competing companies and sold their products under the Microsoft label. "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor\'s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor\'s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor
