You can all relax!

In news that will shock those of us in Jesusistan, the End Times have already occured. It seems that the Number of the Beast may not be 666, but 616 (look under alternate numbers). According to a story in the London Independant:

A University of Birmingham (England) professor, working from a third-century Greek text of the New Testament's Book of Revelation, found that the number representing the Antichrist is probably not 666, but 616 (in that 616 referred to the Emperor Caligula). (A Church of Satan official in New York had no comment except to say that his church will use whatever number Christians fear.) [The Independent (London), 5-5-05] [The Independent (London), 5-1-05]From News of the Weird

So, the Biblical end times occurred almost 2000 years ago! Now, they're going to have to rewrite all those "Left Behind" books.

Yipee!! A whole new slew of end times movies with 616 instead. It's just that 616 sounds like an apartment number
