Sunday Sabbath = The Mark of the Beast?

Ellen White claims that the Catholic Pope is the Beast described in Revelation, and that anyone that follows his teachings has taken his mark. I don't mean to be unjustly harsh, but this teaching seems clearly false to me. In the book of Revelation, John describes that there is an angel in mid-heaven warning people not to take the mark of the beast, and that those who take it are able to buy and sell while otherwise not being allowed. Even if the Pope throughout history has made decisions that seem contrary to Ellen White's view of God's Word, it's a long stretch to say that those who celebrate the Sabbath on Sundays have taken the mark of the Beast. I think about 99% of proclaimed Christians worship on Sundays (and other days of the week as well), so God's kingdom would be in pretty bad straights if Ms. White is correct.

End of the World Scenario

Here's a possible end times scenario, just for fun:

Aliens (fallen angels in disguise) abduct humans and experiment on them until they get the perfect alien-human hybrids (kind of like the Nephilim mentioned in Genesis and the Book of Enoch). The hybrids make their way into government offices over several years, with everyone else none the wiser. Once the hybrids occupy key government positions around the world, the aliens decide to reveal themselves to the world as our friends, the governments confess the alien cover-up/conspiracy, and the sci-fi indoctrinated public openly accepts the situation. Conveniently, the aliens come at a time when the world is in economic, political, and environmental crisis, and they ensure us that they can solve our problems with their other-worldly wisdom. Thus, the aliens take over the administration of planet Earth. The governments give over their power willingly, thanks to the hybrid key players. After the aliens impose their ways onto the earthlings, they convince them to hunt down the remnant who refuse the alien rule. With the armies of the world surrounding the rebel human camp, suddenly there's an attack from outer space, apparently from a hostile alien race! The armies battle against the hostile force, but are completely consumed by the fiery laser beams showering down upon them. The remnant is saved by the "hostile" alien force, and the other aliens along with the armies of the earth are defeated! The remnant is beamed up to the ship belonging to their alien allies precisely at the moment Planet Earth enters the galactic center and experiences a devastating magnetic pole reversal and catastrophic asteroid impacts. The earth is completely obliterated, but the head alien (identified as Yahweh) recreates a perfect, beautiful earth for the remnant of humans to enjoy.
