I was in the check out line and the person in front of me had a total of $6.66. She freaked and quickly grabbed a pack of gum to change the amount. My son was born on 7 June 2006 and people asked us if we were worried that he be born on the 6th. Many conservative American Christians thought that Pres. Ronald Wilson Reagan was the Anti-Christ because there are 6 letters in each of his names (ironically enough when he moved to Bel-Air, CA he had his addressed changed from 666 to 668).
I've studied Eschatology quite a bit, and from what I've seen, this fear seems to be missing the point. Have any of you encountered this?
What I was told (seriously) is that since Man was made on the 6th day, 6 represents Man. So three 6s would mean some highly exalted humanism.
Personally I am quite skeptical about what some people call bible numeralogy. They try to impose significance on all the numbers of the Bible, and sometimes they come up with weird stuff. Like for example that the number 5 means grace. I keep asking why would 5 mean grace. Wouldn't it refer to the law? Since the first 5 books of the Bible are refered to as the law?
You could see the computer hanging when I asked that question... :)
