REVELATIONS 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. So as I’m staying up working on my DVD and talking to people. I decided I would pop a post up that shows some of the 666 symbols we see every day, along with Freemason and Illuminati symbols.
The scenario is part of a counterterrorism summit held this week. A zombie invasion would have characteristics similar to other catastrophic events and would be ‘a federal incident,’ a summit organizer says.
“This is a very real exercise. This is not some type of big costume party,” Brad Barker, president of the Halo Corp. security company, told the Associated Press.

This scenario is dire, modeled in part on a public-service campaign that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)launched last year, warning that US citizens should be prepared in the event of a zombie invasion.
It will play out Wednesday and Thursday at Halo’s annual Counter-Terrorism Summit security conference, which will be attended by, among other people, former Central Intelligence Agencydirector Michael Hayden.
Zombies will invade Paradise Point Resort, which covers 44 acres on an island that will be transformed with Hollywood-style sets, including a Middle Eastern village and a pirate cove. Some 1,000 US military personnel, police, and state and federal government officials will be charged with responding.
“No doubt when a zombie apocalypse occurs, it’s going to be a federal incident, so we’re making it happen,” Mr. Barker told the AP.
The training scenario has not come without its share of unwelcome attention, he noted, adding that “every whack job in the world” has called about the exercise.
Barker acknowledges that the “zombie apocalypse is very whimsical,” telling the Military Times that the scenario was created to “add some levity to the more-dire scenarios summitgoers will encounter,” including terrorists roaming hospital halls shooting people and pilots trapped behind enemy lines.
That said, an affinity for zombie television shows and movies could help provide a teachable moment not only for US troops, but also for the American public.
This is particularly true when it comes to the uncertainty that surrounds unexpected catastrophic events, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks.
“No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly, no one knows what a terrorist will do,” Barker told the AP. “If a law-enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, ‘Freeze, get your hands in the air!’ what’s a zombie going to do? He’s going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he’s not going to react to you.”
When it launched its awareness campaign last year on a zombie apocalypse, the CDC used it as a chance to encourage Americans to be prepared for any unexpected emergency.
“We have a very small office and an equally small budget,” Maggie Silver, a CDC official, told ABC News. “So we had to do something that wasn’t going to take a lot of manpower or dollars.”
The CDC recommended doing things such as stocking up on water (one gallon per person per day), food (nonperishable items you eat regularly), tools like duct tape, a battery-powered radio, and blankets.
The CDC zombie campaign grew out of an effort “to spice up our general preparedness message,” added Ms. Silver. “We decided, why not give people what they want?”

(Sept 10, 2012) While the following report may seem entirely more plausible if it were to appear in a popular sci-fi novel than on a news website, the U.S. Homeland Security Department has, in fact, warned that the “zombies are coming,” and has urged citizens to prepare for apocalyptic disasters and emergencies.”The zombies are coming!” reads the Homeland Security warning. The theory behind the calamitous “warning” is that if citizens prepare for a zombie-like scenario, they will be better prepared to combat genuine disasters and emergencies, such as hurricanes, pandemics, earthquakes and terrorist attacks.As part of the popular health campaign, the public has been urged to stock up on food, batteries and water, and to keep extra changes of clothes and medication on hand.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hosted an online seminar for its Citizen Corps organization to help emergency planners better prepare their communities for disaster.Last year, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) first launched a zombie apocalypse social media campaign for the same purposes.A spokesperson explained at the time that the campaign was introduced to get Americans interested in its annual campaign for hurricane preparedness.“I worry we try the same thing every year and I didn’t know how many people we were actually engaging,” Dave Daigle of the Center for Disease Control told The Los Angeles Times. “Let’s face it — preparedness and public health are not exactly sexy topics.”In a statement, the organization later confirmed it is currently not warning against a specific zombie-like virus or condition.
