I was wondering for some time, what makes this number a satanic number? (I know, Biblical reference, numerologist crap... blah) but I have a question which may seem stupid, and that is - Is it the actual number, or the count that is the satanic symbol?
Ill try making myself clear - 666 is the number of the beast, no doubt. But if I used the binary code, I could write the same number as 1010011010. Would 1010011010 be the number of the beast if it was referenced to as binary code?
Also, would 666 be the number of the beast if it was 666 in Hex? because in decimal count it would be the number 1638 ?

I dont actually need this for anything, dont get me wrong, I am just curious on what is going on.

In the Bible it specifically says that 666 is the mark of the beast. That's it.

Mark of the Beast
Revelation 13:16-18 states:
"Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom: let anyone with the understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six."

you bring up some very valid points, I suppose, because those numbers are translated into the same values, they could very well be the same.

yes, and what Im trying to say is that if it works with different number schemes (or scales or how they are called), you can get about every number to be 666 when translated to the decimal scale or into actual count.

I THINK people found some old papyrus scrolls with the number writen as 616 that pre-dated the earliest bibles, and this was apparently misread and written as 666 ever since. Or something.

we had a debate about this in religion.
555 is the number of total perfection- representing jesus/ god/ moses/ ect
666 is supposed to be total imperfectoion- represting the roman ruler at that time.
was apparently misinterprted as satan.

QUESTION: Would 1010011010 be the number of the beast if it was referenced to as binary code?

I think Ill delete this, not one person has answered my question
#33
personally, i would say probably. but the whole 666 thing looks ominous and well, 1010011010 just doesnt. now, if you were writing for a computer, you would use binary for the number of the beast just because the computer wouldnt know what you meant if you typed in the number 6. but that quote mentions nothing about three sixes, just the number six hundred and sixty six.
#34
put it this way, klayy, i don't think the guys who wrote the bible and all the texts related to it knew much about binary codes or decimals, right? i think it's kinda like the calendar, many things r extremely inaccurate due to those differences, and imo the number 666 is more of a symbol than anythin, especially given that most ppl don't know or don't care about decimals, binary code or w/e. dunno, this is just my opinion, it makes some sense inside my head...

right, i see your point, quite reasonable

I suppose that it is just the number. 666, three 6 digits in a row, no matter what the actual value is. In that case I see the clergy using the sixths system some time in the future, using digits 0 to 5 to avoid the "bad number" for good (for those less intelligent - this was a joke)

I still think that it is a laugh to make a number be soo kvlt and demonic and stuff.
#36
I read this in a book that at the time that the number 666 derived as being the number of the beast, people woud play a game with numbers where they would convert your name into numbers. At the time there was an emporer who was like hitler in a way to the people he ruled. So they converted his name into numbers and got 666.


So ya.
