Last night I couldn't sleep so I turned on the radio (KFI) and the anouncer said it's 66 degrees in Los Angeles...on the clock it was 12:06!

So somewhere tonight on ROUTE 66 at 6:06 pm on 06/06/06 it will be 66 degrees (somewhere) and some guy who is 66 years old will drive by houses numberd with sixes containing 6 year olds...

Douglas Adams will smile and The Mad Hatter will say "It's all so silly...you know...more tea?".

I'm still waiting for something to happen. I've been listening to It's the End of the World as We Know It by R.E.M. all morning to get pumped up. I guess the world's just ending in the sense that a really dumb looking remake is coming out and it's gonna come waste our money.

Perhaps the antichrist is born today? Or more interstingly, conceived (watch what you & your girl do today!!).

But I think 662006 doesn't quite work. Is it Thursday? I can never get the hang of Thursdays.

Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

Wake me when it's 6/6/6666 I don't remember the sign of the beast being 662006. Of course King James might have had that modified............. I wonder if the world ended June sixth year six. Of course they said the world was going to end in 2000 (Y2K).

Being that I really hope to have a hand in the end of the world, I believe it will be a tad later.


If you want to get really technical, we should have done this 3 days ago, on 6/3/2006. Why? Because the bible says the number of the beast is "six hundred three score and six". A score is 20, so we had 6/"3"/"20"06! Smile

Every generation overlooks that and yet it is written in apparently plain English. Oh well.

Thus three score is 60 (20 + 20 + 20) making it the tradiional 666 (six hundred (600) + three score (60) + six 6). Anyway according to this site http://www.religionnewsblog.com/11134 the actual number is 616 due to a mistranslation from the original greek. This makes Grand Rapids Michigan the home of the beast as their area code is 616.

funny. My little brother just did that. I told him what today was, and He brought out my dads shotgun, (I don't know where he got that...) and he pretended to load it. Little did he know, that it would actually work. Click! It actually loaded, he had it pointed to me, so he just sat there in udder surprise. He stood there, and looked at me. And he slowly put the gun on the floor, and left the room. (I was just busting my guts out laughing.) Oh, good times...

Oh, and just to let you guys know, (he didn't know though!) that the trigger was locked, and there was no ammo in it. Si nothing would have happened. But the expression on his face was priceless.

Themagicman101, It's often the "unloaded" ones that kill people. If your brother doesn't know this and/or points any gun at someone, it shouldn't be in the house.

Hey, I wasn't being sarcastic. It must be the end of the world.

If it is the end of the world I should think we should have plenty of peanuts and beer.

Beware of internet scholarship.

Dan Wallace, one of the best textual critics around, has responded to the article - you can find a link to his response on the page the Payne posted. While Dr. Wallace is sympathetic to 616, he is far away from stating that 666 is out the door. Most telling is Wallace's statement that the author "...did not interview textual critics for this piece. Aitken makes the astounding claim that "it now seems that 616 was the original number of the beast."

I had heard months ago that there was a mistranslation and the number was supposed to be 667. But I didn't hear how that result came about. :rolls eyes:
