Of course everybody knows that 666 is the mark of the beast in the Christian religion. But honestly it is also an amazingly interesting number that marvels the minds of multiple mathematicians. Men go mad trying to solve this sphinx’s riddle!

So, what do you think the secret between this amazing number is? What do you think it is symbolic of when used in the bible, if anything? What are some fun facts you know about it, or strange experiences you have had with it. (For example, my aunt and uncles anniversary dated 06/06/06 and is falling a part.) Do you think the riddle can really be solved by a combination of spirituality, knowledge, and mathematical genius?

Check out this website for a compendium of mathematical facts about 666! (as the site calls itself!)

People come up with different things for certain numbers. Other than 666, ppl have come up with things for other numbers like 555, and the 9/11 attack. You could come up with an infinite amount of solutions for any number. I bet ppl that are extremely bored come up with these ideas.

Same deal in mine and it's pretty old too. Plus the only weird thing i could think of that happened during 666 is on the date 6/06/06 is when i saw a dark figure standing in my bedroom doorway but no one else could see it. Weird, eh?

Quite simple....Its not that fascinating of a number really. Christian belief is flawed (like usual). Perhaps the number was intentional. If you consider that numbers were created by human beings. Its not neccessarily mystifing. So the lame movies and legends are all blown out of proportion.

How much I nerd I am...? Erm, I didn't discover any of those. Anyway, the guy who made that sight didn't make those up either. Mathmaticians throughout history have come up with these... 666 is a perfect number, a prime (I think), and it appears in the Phibinaci Sequence. (SP?)

Just three more fun things!

It’s not Christian belief… It’s just an interesting series of facts drawn attention to by Christian beliefs. Anyway, Christian belief in its core is rarely flawed. The problem is people misunderstand, manipulate, and misinterpret it. My opinion of course, and I’m sure half of you are going to jump down my throat for it, but you know what? Rather you like it or not I’m free to believe it!

Sooo very sick of people screwing with Christians and Christian belief but then calling Christians and the Christian philosophy hypocritical and judgmental. We’re being stereotyped for stereotyping, and judged for being judgmental. That’s what’s really hypocritical in my opinion.

*Sigh* I don’t know why so many people here on CR are so extremely bias against Christians… Half of us never did anything to any of you, yet we get things like Christian reasoning is flawed (as usual) and other such condescending and insulting remarks, insults, and comments.

Come on people! Give us a break!

Also, this is not Christian reasoning at all. This is the reasoning of mathematicians who are interested in what the number is trying to suggest when used in Christianity….

Christians are people. We're individuals, and just because some of us are pricks and ignorant, doesn't mean we all are. So please, please, please! Lay off with the entire anti-Christianity, Christians are evil, Christians are horrible crap!

That's sooo narrow minded, prejudice, and childish! Man, I try my very best to be accepting and understanding of other people’s views and beliefs, but just because my beliefs are Christian nobody seems to think I’m worthy of repaying the favor to.

I mean, you’re welcome to believe Christians are all crap, (even though that’s insanely ignorant in my opinion) but please don’t make sure I have to -know- you -are- right! Crap man!

Anyway….

For sure! We created numbers so we can do things like measure, quantitize, etc. And anything bourne of humans should not have anything particularly supersticious about them.
