So I've been thinking about everyone and how they worry about the numbers 666 as the mark of the beast..

It occurred to me (probably others too) that the number 666 isn't referencing a number at all but a format of numbers.

Working with computers for the last 10 years, I started thinking about what kind of number would do anyone any good being stamped on a person's hand or head.

The answer I came up with is a MAC address.

For those of you who don't know what a MAC address is, it is the physical address of the network card inside of a computer.

An IP address on the internet can belong to anything and can be redirected, etc. A MAC address is unique to a PCs network card (hackers sometimes try to spoof these MAC addresses to conceal their PC's identity or location)

A MAC address on a person would be a great way to keep track of and identify a vast number of people and their money across computer networks all over the world.

What does a MAC address consist of?

6 sets of hexadecimal number combinations (triplets of 6, 666)

Go to the network properties of a Windows PC, select the network adapter and click configure. Look for MAC address or Physical Network Address to find your MAC address.

Just a guess on my part... I probably don't have all the details in this post, but seems interesting to me.

Hahahah... no, if you believe in that hunk of junk, 666 is just the opposite of what god stands for get it? 333 is god, 666 is the devil. But I don't believe in number crap....

hate to let you in on this.  revelations is written in the style of a political satire at the time, and most readers at the time would recognize the characters lampooned.  666 is gematria for nero caesar, and if you read the description of the beast carefully, and with knowledge of the symbolism at the time of writing, it is a perfect fit.  of course, the writers of the new testament, the council of constantinople, either didn't know this or didn't care.

And in line with Gideon Mage's line of reasoning, any student of Latin will recall the famous phrase of the Roman Empire, "Veni, Vidi, Vinci." "I came, I saw, I conquered." The first and last letters of each word: vi vi vi ... in Roman numerals is equivalent to 666.

maybe its all the things that are 666... the whole combination of them.

this is my personal fav...

W = poltical slogan for george w bush

W

1. two points emerging from three. Two out of three is 666repeating
2. three points over two points. 3/2 = .666 repeating.

the antichrist is someone who works for a chist like cause in unchrist like ways.
George bush has hijacked the christian party to win his presidency. Now he is waging a war an ideological war that continues to escalate.

-----
but i dont believe his is THE antichrist, just a ignorant or enlightend puppet.

Hitch,
That is a really interesting take on things. I often thought that the mark of the beast could NOT simply be the numbers "666", because I think that even the most ardent atheists would refuse to have that stamped on their head or hand. I know that for awhile people suspected that the numbers 666 were actually some sort of binary code inside a computer chip that could be implanted in the body.
When I was in law school I took a technology law class, and they mentioned rather casually how people are looking into implanting computer chips in their bodies for various purposes. That freaked me out, because nobody even thought twice about that concept!
It would have to be something that doesn't OBVIOUSLY state "666" though, and I think your thoughts certainly bear some consideration.

Gideon was quite right that  666 was intended to mean Nero Caesar.  Revelation was written with the expectation that all of those things would happen in the same generation it was written, and other examples are clearly aimed at the Roman government of John's time, which had exiled him on the Isle of Patmos.  For example, the "Child" represents the newly formed Christian Church, and the "Dragon" seeking to devour it is the Roman government that was persecuting christians at the time.  If that wasn't clear enough for its Christian readers, the dragon has seven head to represent the seven hills of Rome.  Logic would dictate that since Jesus did not return, or anything else in that prophecy occured by 100 AD, when that generation died out, we must obviously recognize this was a "false" prophecy.  Instead, though, people are making millions selling books about the apocolypse in our time, and fundamentalists think the Pope is the "anti-christ"!

I did find it curious however, that the Koran has exactly 6,666 verses.

Well, fundamentalists never liked Catholics, so it doesn't surprise me that they think the pope is the antichrist.  grin2.gif
Seriously though, I did hear that theory before - I think it has something to do with the olive branch and prophecy of St. Malachy?

Haven't they recently discovered an older version of Revelations which gives the number of the beast as 616......?
