      Revelation 13:16-18

      16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,

      17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

      18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

      • Gray Goo to Cover Earth Surface like Sherwin Wiliams Paint

        That's the Gray Goo theory, these teeny-tiny nearly microscopic nanobots develop the ability to replicate themselves & the chain reaction kicks off, so the world's surface is covered with them in like 8 days, looks like a spreading gray goo from the satellites. Hey, the History Channel is never wrong!

        Just posting in this apocalyptic dread thread as I look at today's headlines in the San Jose Mercury News : OUTBREAK IN MEXICO --Deadly Flu Triggers Vigilance in Valley, then the disclaimer: SO FAR, NO CASES OF NEW SWINE FLU HAVE BEEN FOUND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. Pandemic fear sells newspapers!

            The early Church father Irenaeus knew several occurrences of the 616-variant but regarded them as a scribal error and affirmed that the number 666 stood "in all the most approved and ancient copies" and is attested by "those men who saw John face to face".[12]

            In May 2005, it was reported that scholars at Oxford University using advanced imaging techniques[13] had been able to read previously illegible portions of the earliest known record of the Book of Revelation(a 1,700 year old papyrus), from the Oxyrhynchus site, Papyrus 115 or P115, dating one century after Irenaeus. The fragment gives the Number of the Beast as 616 (chi, iota, stigma), rather than the majority text 666 (chi, xi, stigma).[1] The other early witness Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (C) has it written in full: hexakosiai deka hex (lit. six hundred sixteen).[14]

            Significantly, P115 aligns with Codex Alexandrinus (A) and Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus (C) which are generally regarded as providing the best testimony to Revelation. Thus, P115 has superior testimony to that of P47 which aligns with Codex Sinaiticus and together form the second-best witness to the Book of Revelation. This has led some scholars to conclude that 616 is the original number of the beast.[15][16]

            Dr. Paul Lewes in his book, A Key to Christian Origins (1932) wrote:
            "The figure 616 is given in one of the two best manuscripts, C (Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus, Paris), by the Latin version of Tyconius (DCXVI, ed. Souter in the Journal of Theology, SE, April 1913), and by an ancient Armenian version (ed. Conybaere, 1907). Irenaeus knew about it [the 616 reading], but did not adopt it (Haer. v.30,3), Jerome adopted it (De Monogramm., ed. Dom G Morin in the Rev. Benedictine, 1903). It is probably original. The number 666 has been substituted for 616 either by analogy with 888, the [Greek] number of Jesus (Deissmann), or because it is a triangular number, the sum of the first 36 numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6...+36 = 666)".[17]

            Professor David C. Parker, Professor of New Testament Textual Criticism and Paleography at the University of Birmingham, thinks that 616, although less memorable than 666, is the original.[18] Dr. Ellen Aitken said: “Scholars have argued for a long time over this, and it now seems that 616 was the original number of the beast. It's probably about 100 years before any other version."[19]
            I'm just going by the age of the translations. 666 was more elegant and so it's understandable that people would change it.

            • I think it will be a massive solar flare from the sun that will engulf the earth.

              Or if you want to read Revelation literally, the Earth will pass through a massive asteroid storm which will kill 1/3 of the population of earth. These asteroids, burning up in the atmosphere will either cause chemicals or pathogens to be released into the atmosphere which will kill another 1/3 of the world's population.

              Then in a fight for survival and remaining, uncontaminated resources, the peoples of the earth will draw lines in an epic World War III in which every country (except for Switzerland of course) will be involved.

              Sound about right?

              Oldie but a goodie.

                  That's great, except for that whole "the Bible being the infallible word of God" and all.
