This is not at all surprising, is it?
A prominent Iranian ayatollah says the Mahdi, the end-times Muslim savior, will come back in a spaceship with the sound “of thunder and its power and speed is that of lightning.”
Actually, his recent explanation wasn’t completely clear.
“It is like a spaceship and like other swift and amazing space vessels that are found [only] in stories today, but nobody knows how close [these vessels] come to truth and reality. Maybe it will be like [a spaceship] but in any case it is not a spaceship,” he said.
His description was discovered in an Iranian news report by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media reports in the region.
The comments came from Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi, who operates his own website to promote his views.
He was respoinding to a question about the “arrival of the Mahdi – the Hidden Imam who is the equivalent of the Messiah in Shiite Islam,” MEMRI reported.
“He explained at length how the Mahdi’s arrival will be high-tech, as befits the modern age,” MEMRI said.
