Monday, the tiny 23 amp, 12v battery in my small gate-opening clicker went caput. Tuesday, the 9v battery in my larger gate-opening clicker died. Wednesday, my car battery bit the dust. Just coincidence, or is the universe trying to tell me something?

  1. The True Meaning of 666
    Last week I posted a tongue in cheek scenario where Dan Brown (Merovignian heir) and J.K. Rowling (Merovignian heiress) combine forces to destroy Vol de mort (Bush of Death).

    With 666 approaching, a new insight came to me about 666. Forget the Book of John – it’s so cryptic and open to myriad interpretations that it’s hard to tell whether 666 is the Antichrist, the Antichrist’s friend, or exactly what.

    The number 666, the mark of the beast, is best represented symbolically as a lightning bolt. Who do we all know who was marked by a lightning bolt? Does Harry seem like the antichrist to you, or the savior?

    Even Aleister Crowley might agree with my theory since he claimed that “It(666) only means sunlight; 666 is the number of the sun.” If 666 can represent sunlight/energy, it can also represent electricity/lightning.

    Is it at all surprising that organized religions throughout the ages have promoted (not disputed) the idea of 666 being the ‘baddy’ (anything to instill fear in the masses – it’s how they control us), when in fact 666 is the savior? Something to think about.

      1. 616
        Yes, I remember reading that 616 is the number mentioned in some of those scrolls found in a rubbish heap in the desert. I think it was in an article on the history of the discovery of The Gospel of Judas. But if the real mark of the beast were 616, then all hell should have broken loose on Jan. 6th, 2006 – at least in countries like Oz and Britain that place the number corresponding to the month after the day of the month. And of course, that means all hell should have broken loose on June 1st in the US. So obviously 666 is the correct number of the beast – at least until we all make it to Wednesday, at which point the catastrophists will come up with another horrific number.
