I know that the original number in scripture was 616. The idea of 666 has become so ingrained in everyone’s minds that most scholars would ‘correct’ any mention of 616 when translating documents and such.

Edit: Ok so everyone knew that. -_-;

I heard the mark was really 7


I have heard some stuff about the "number of God" being 7 (or 777)

"These seven lamps are the seven eyes of the LORD" and whatnot.

666 might have something to do with a guy named Nero, who slain Christians in the days of the Roman empire


one of the speculations about it taken from wiki:

"Scholars who believe that the Book of Revelation refers to historical people and events argue that the number represents Nero. In Hebrew gematria, every letter has a corresponding number. Summing these numbers gives a numeric value to a word or name. In Hebrew, "Nero Caesar" is spelled “נרון קסר”, pronounced "Neron Qesar". Adding the corresponding values yields 666, as shown:

Resh Samekh Qoph Nun Waw Resh Nun
200 60 100 50 6 200 50 = 666


so yeah -_-


I've heard that the prophecies of Nostradamus are also references to past events, he believed that time was cyclical and therefore you could predict the future trough significant events of the past.

666 is my favorite number three times. Three is a good number, right? XD;

Truthfuly, I don't believe in certain numbers being 'imperfect/evil' and certain numbers being 'perfect/good.' To me, numbers are for computing/counting/etc. They are also fun to play with, which is the only reason why I checked the first linked site.

accorinding to stephen fry on QI, the mark of the beast was originally 616 but one of the people transcribing the bible from scrolls and whatnot thought it was wrong and changed it.

Probably, the conspiracy is the conspiracy i.e. the fact that it's meaning is so enigmatic is what makes it seem so "powerful". So it doesn't really matter if it's real meaning is some lame ass concoction of some sort or a magnificent mathematical-cum-spiritual wonder, as long as we don't know, it becomes appealing.

Hahaha , 666 . I got 6 out of 10 on all three quizzes once . My teacher called for our marks and I said ,
" 666 . " then people were like , " Oooh ~ " I didn`t get it . I had to ask random people for it `cause my friend
