Erg, um, I chose 666, b'cause it's a nice, round, happy number.
Funny how the writer of Revelation picked that number: when
you take the number values of each letter in the original
language, you create a new number. It was only fitting that
the writer, being forcefully exiled by his government, calculated
this number and wrote about it. The name used to calculate that
number? "Nero Caesar".
I wonder what other names equate to 666 (heh, sounds like a
project to me...must do more research!). Kinda also deflates
all the heavy SatanMetal of the 80's and 90's, and makes all
those "EvilKids" you went to school with, who had that number
etched with a knife into their books and folders and whatever
else, kinda look like misguided fools. Y'know? Ah, smalltown life.
Let he who has wisdom calculate the number of a man, for
it is the number of the beast. That number is six-hundred and
Revelation 13:18 (one of the few scriptures I know)
If idle hands are the tools of the devil, are idol tools the hands of god?
