667, the neighbor of the beast.
In a related story, fundamentalist christians move away from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area to locations with less satanic area codes.
Just wait, you laugh now but I'd bet there are some people packing up as we type.
Actually 668 is the neighbour of the beast. 667 lives across the street. My friend was in a Maiden cover band called 668 the neighbour of the beast.
and what is 665 then? the red headed step child of the beast?

Well, suddenly, my birthday being June 16th doesn't feel so right....
What a relief, my birthday's June 66th....
How cool is this guy:
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."
First documented by Iraneus in 180AD, so not really news.
The article has it wrong, 616 and 666 refer to Nero, not Caligula.
Hebrew numerals are, like Roman numerals, denoted by letters. A Hebrew transliteration of the greek "Cesar Neron" (the original document was written in greek) has the letters/numbers:
Reading them right to left (as you do):
kaph(100), samech(60), resh(200), nun(50), resh(200), waw(6) and nun(50).
Add them up, you get 666.
Use the Latin "Cesar Nero" you have one less nun and you get 616.
Revelation was written towards the end of the first century AD during the christian persecutions of Domitian, who was popularly regarded as a second coming of Nero.
Edit: I ought to point out that there are other, somewhat wackier interpretations of the number, including the pope, barcodes, Bill Gates, etc. etc.
And I big sigh of relief is felt by Cheesewiz
No, the neighbor of the guy who lives across the street from the guy who says he's the anti-Christ.
Or the man who met the man who shook the hand of Andy Griffith.
