666 is still carbon and is the commerce system of the last global economy. Revelation 13 called it and you have little room to scoff.

I understand what you mean. I agree, all scripture has multiple dimensions of meaning to them. When it comes to prophecy, my approach is to identify the literal event first, then follow the symbolism and allegory that proliferates from it.
Im not saying that you are wrong. The relationship between carbon and 6 is very interesting, especially since it is the key ingredient in life. I just find it equally important to make the literal connections to the symbol.
I maintain that 666 is the number of a single man, not mankind in general. His economy will be corrupt, as in the days of Solomon, but whether it will be a carbon based economy remains to be seen.
Do you realize that by denying or downplaying the realness of a subject you are thereby fueling the cause? If you really wanted something else you would appeaze the believer and show a better path instead of taking pot shots at something that has been proven true to some but not all. However i have no doubt that your spirit knows what you are doing even if you do not.
