According to recent examinations of the oldest surviving copy of the New Testament, the number of the beast isn’t 666, but 616.

That’s funny in an of itself, but all the moreso for this paragraph from the article:

They and satanists responded coolly to the new “Revelation”. Peter Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan, based in New York, said: “By using 666 we’re using something that the Christians fear. Mind you, if they do switch to 616 being the number of the beast then we’ll start using that.”

That is awesome on so many levels.

    man that sucks, 666 is a much cooler set of numbers than 616.

    so who’s the tard that fudged up the translation?

    isn’t it actually just 6? man is 5, devil is 6, heaven is 7.

    and I think caligula was more of a 69 than 616. also somehow that they called caligula the devil devalidates this for me.

    According to my recent examination of pop radio, the number of The Beast is not 666, but Blink 182.

    This may explain why the Iron Maiden song “Number of the Beast” doesn’t contain a single minor chord.

    Now. . . you may want to start out with the Lock Up the Wolves album. . . Jeez. . .
