The Beast represents many evils, not just one. The mark of the beast is a mark in a spiritual sense, in that those who are subject to the Beast are marked for punishment.

Apocalypse 14:9-10 Wrote:And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If any man shall adore the beast and his image, and receive his character in his forehead, or in his hand; He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mingled with pure wine in the cup of his wrath, and shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy angels, and in the sight of the Lamb.

It would be very simple minded (and like those weird protestants) to think the beast is a single living creature like an animal, with many heads and horns, and the mark of it is a physical mark on the forehead or hand. Perhaps the "forehead" and "hand" statement refers to "thought and deed".

I'm sure there are physical representations of the evils that the Beast represents, but evil takes many forms.
