We really shouldn't judge this man for this. I would have done it to. So he wants his soul to be saved. dont we all? And who are we to judge him?

Well, to each their own I guess, but, I know of only one way to save my soul, and it ain't quitting my job b/c of a number on my w-2 form.

It appears to me, his number in the employee database is 666. Unless they change the database around this is going to continually happen.

I was in Books A Million this past weekend and I overheard the cashiers talking to another about a 3rd cashier who would not finish a transaction that came up to $6.66.

Some people really take this sort of thing very serious. I used to work for a mortague company and have had customers call in and refuse to make their house payment because of a 666 in their account number. They always said they would make the payments if we would change their account number.

hasn't this number been shown time and time again to be a biblical mistranslation?

when i was born, the hospital tried to put my mom in room 666. They were rolling her in and she went balistic.

Hospital actually ended up taking down the number, and there was never a room 666 in that hospital, they just skipped it.

I will not use those numbers either, I will round up on payments before I use those numbers. I do like my personnel numbers, they have 3 7's in it. Not at all saying that you don't believe in it, just saying what I believe.


By mistranslation, I meant Hebrew/ Aramaic/ Greek, not the English translation. I know its presented that was in the translations. Many Biblical scholars, I believe, show or at least argue, that this number is actually "616"

I am weird about it, too. I will add to a purchase if the amount comes up $6.66. My Dad refused a license plate that was R42-666. He told her he would drive without one before he put that on his car.

I think this is kind of interesting because, if the original numbers are indeed "616", does that change your opinion of the number "666"? Do both just to be safe?

No. It is the total that I will add to.

I mean, will you treat both numbers the same, just to be on the safe side?

With the variance in sales tax around here, it would take a calculator to figure it up. If it comes to that number, I just grab something else and throw it on the counter.

Now I have all kinds of technical questions. ;\)

If your total comes to $6.66 That is not that same as "666" since it is separated by a decimal.

If your total comes to $666.00, it is still divided by a decimal point. Seems like, technically speaking, a thinking person would only be concerned with three sixes in succession, not separated by an decimal punctuation. Or, as the case may in fact be, the numbers "616" in succession. But, now we have a even bigger problem on our hands. This thread is full of both the successive number combinations "666" and "616."

It's apparent to me from some of these posts that the 666th person on large church congregation's membership roster must be a clandestine agent sent by Satan himself. As long as we're at it, someone needs to check and see who was the 666th person to join TnDeer. Can't be too careful with dangerous stuff like this.

If you are askeered of 666 you probably should also be on the lookout for 29A and 00101001101 sequences because they're all the same.

Nobody ever said it was specific to base 10 \:D \:D

"For believers such as Slonopas, who take the book of Revelation literally,..."

I didn't see anything in the article that stated Mr. Slonopas could read ancient Greek - the original language of Revelation.

Furthermore, Revelation has a lot of symbolic references - much as Christ often spoke in metaphors - and the meaning of 666 has been oft debated. For all he knows, the 666 actually refers to "the man in Tennessee named Walter Slonopas" and he actually is the antichrist.

In my opinion, much ado about nothing. Christ is the way to heaven, and no number can veto Christ.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don;t.

But why would anyone be afraid of 00101001101? Half the antichrist? \:D

666 is just a number. I'd be willing to bet that if we reviewed all of our financial and legal documents we all would come across the number a time or two.

Let me try that again...666/512=1
154/256=0
154/128=1
26/64 =0
26/32 =0
26/16 =1
10/8 =1
2/4 =0
2/2 =1
0/1 =0
666=1010011010

I must have transposed my answer from paper to keyboard earlier... \:D \:D
