Amazing Facts about 666

Editor’s Note:  There are several videos on youtube that explain or make conjectures about the significance of ‘666’.   This particular video on the numerology of 666 is of special interest because the video explains the numerical significance of ‘666’ as well.  This is the transcript of the video:

======= start of transcript =============
666 – what does that mean?

For many people, just saying the number conjures up ominous images of secret occult ceremonies and evil powers of apocalyptic prophecies.

Others have refused phone numbers, license plates and even credit cards that might contain the number 666 because of their fearful superstitions.

One of the longest words in the English language describes this phobia.

It’s known as  hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia

I’m sure I said that wrong…

For many years Highway 666 running from Gallup, New Mexico to Monticello, Utah was named Devil’s Highway because the description that identifies the number with the Beast of Revelation.

This Satanic connotation combined with an unusually high fatality rate convinced some people that the highway was cursed.

The problem was compounded because Satanists or somebody was chronically stealing the highway signs as souvenirs.

So in 2003, the US Highway Department decided to rename Highway 666 to US Route 491.

The Bible says:

“Here is wisdom – Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast; for it is a number of a man ; and his number is Six hundred and sixty six.”  – Revelation 13:18

We don’t have to be afraid of the number 666.

It’s the natural number sequentially that follows 665
and preceeding 667.

Nevertheless, mathematically 666 is a very unique

It’s an abundant number.  It’s the sum of the first 36 natural numbers.  In other words if you add up one plus two plus three plus four plus five and up to 36, it adds up to 666 – and yes that would also mean that if you add up all 36 slots on a roulette wheel the resulting total is 666.

Probably also worth mentioning the ancient Jews followed the lunar calendar that had 360 days in the year.

666 is also a triangular number since 36 is both square and triangular.

12 plus 12 plus 12 equals 36.

And of course 222 times 3 is 666.

666 is also the sum of the square of the first seven prime numbers.  For example,  1 squared plus 3 squared plus 5 squared plus 7 squared plus 11 squared plus 13 squared plus 17 squared adds up to 666.

Even organic molecules are based on Carbon twelve with six proton and six neutrons and the nucleus is surrounded by six electrons.

There is more – if you add up the first 6 Roman numerals – I V X L C D, (1 + 5  + 10 +  50 + 100 + 500) the resulting total is absolutely 666.

With all of this in mind, it makes one wonder why the book of Revelation tells us that this mysterious number is the key to identifying the last day Beast,
the Anti-Christ.
