Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number

Scholars have used a cutting-edge photographic technique to read a previously indecipherable fragment of the Book of Revelation, discovered years ago in Egypt. Based on the fragment, Professor David Parker, Professor of New Testament Textual Criticism and Paleography at the University of Birmingham, suggests that the number 666 ascribed to the Beast may originally have been “616”, a simple gematric code for the name of the Emperor Caligula.

Numerologist Glynis McCants once told Coast to Coast AM with George Noory listeners that Reagan probably has Alzheimer’s because he once lived in a house with the address 666. Nancy Reagan allegedly changed the number to 664 or something, but McCants insisted that any location marked by the accursed number is uninhabitable. So – all you 616 people – get out, save yourselves!

Just kidding.
