Funny. The thing is that in the original manuscript the number is 616, the 666 came about when some monk doing a copy thought ď616, hmmm, that donít sound right, perhaps they meant 666.ĒHere is another example of how deeply the religious termites have burrowed, and how poisonous religion can be.
Kentucky.....figures, a high school cross country runner with a chance to win her first state championship withdrew from the race because....are you ready for this shit?.........because she drew the number 666. She was quoted as saying she didn't want to risk her relationship with God by wearing a number associated with the devil.
So God is that childish that he would reject this devoutly religious young girl just because of a number? Really?
"Religion poisons everything." Christopher Hitchens.
It throws the spanner into credibility for sure.
Here is another funny (and coincidence) about the number.
In Moscow they has the 666 bus route no one would travel on. The authorities changed the number to , would you believe, 616
