Today is not the date from hell

Posted by Richard on June 6, 2006

Today, according to many religious whackjobs,  is this horrible, Satanic date: 6/6/6. The fabled Number of the Beast. Never mind that you’ve got to omit some relevant digits to write it that way.

The folks at 20th Century Fox scheduled their remake of The Omen — the movie about the child who’s the spawn of Satan — to premier today. I’ll give them credit for this: on their splash screen, they wrote the date as "06.06.06," even though it doesn’t look as Satanic that way. According to The Denver Post, a number of women scheduled to give birth "any day now" had labor induced on the 5th so as not to risk giving birth to Damien.

Well, the folks worried about today just haven’t paid attention to the latest scientific research. More than a year ago, I noted that the Number of the Beast had been recalculated, and it was actually 616, not 666. That means the fateful day was either last week (June 1) or several months ago (January 6), depending on whether you follow the U.S. convention of month/day/year or the rest of the world’s convention of  day/month/year.

If your baby was born on January 6 or June 1, keep a close eye on him — and shame on you for not taking preventative measures. The rest of you, take a deep breath and relax. Today, there’s nothing to worry about. 🙂
