Actually, because of the archiving scheme, old ones keep falling off, so we're back to 666 threads.

My wife has a keyfob that says "667... Neighbour of The Beast". I always thought it really should be 668

Hey, Mr. E-vil: go to General Topics and look at the small type at the top of the blue shaded area. It will show the number of topics, which is, in fact, still 666.

Of course, the number of the beast could also be 616. In fact, some scholars say it probably is and it represents Nero, who was definitely viewed as a beast by early Christians.

It's ok, I see numbers everywhere so it all balances out.


I was still in the church in the early 70s when the whole End Times thing first spread from the fringe to the mainstream of the evangrelical church. You have no idea how bizarre it is for me to see it become so familiar in popular culture that now everybody knows about the Mark of the Beast and the Anti-Christ and the Tribulation Period and the Rapture.

Yeah, that pretty much was launched by the book, The Late, Great Planet Earth. Of course, all that stuff was supposed to come to pass by the late 80's. Still waiting.
