None of this is numerology, it's about how the story of a carpenter's son became the truly erroneous and beriddled compendium you refer to as the Holy
Bible about this demigod who atoned for humanity by giving up his lifeblood as payment for original sin, and was miraculously resurrected and came
back to life for the blessing of the Church. Hmmm, not so sure.
For what the Masoretic text underlying the Old Testament would call Lamb, the Greek Septuagint will call reptiles. What the KJV will call «the four
beasts», the Douai-Rheims would call «the four living creatures». Where Codex Vaticanus would have 666, Codex Ephraemi would have 616. How can you
blindly believe something you simultaneously refuse to understand or even observe and acknowledge? To say the mystery surrounding the Name/Number of
the Beast is ambiguous— is an epic understatement, mate. There is no such thing as a perfect or holy bible, they all contain errors and plenty
contradictions and often even proven forgeries, mainly due to (deliberate?) mistranslations and countless additions and omissions, commas and
The only reason the Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus survived to our day, is that it was written upon high quality and extremely expensive vellum parchment.
At some time during the 12th century, this beautiful handwritten Bible from around 400 AD containing 616 spelled out as «sixhundred-ten-six» in
Greek— was white washed, and the parchment recycled to contain a number of Greek treatises by a person named Ephrem the Syrian, hence the name of
the book, «Ephraemi Rescriptus». However, modern technology lets us read what was once written beneath the rescripted Ephrem text, and such a book
as the one that pops out when the correct light is applied, would have likely cost the equivalent of several million dollars in today's money to make
when it was once put together. 616 was no typo and no accident, hear my words. Irenaeus and others commented on it, but were all unable to fully
Question everything. Deny ignorance.
