Just curious on what you guys think? I still think the statue and beast prophecy describes quite well Rome(iron) and the current fragmented political system around the world(clay mixed with iron).
Certainly, the particulars about the North and the South I don't care for because they are really open to interpretation. But, I think the above mentioned is spot on.
Also, what are atheists' takes on these prophecies? They seem pretty straightforward to me.
