The fragment supports the reading of some Greek New Testament manuscripts that read 616 instead of 666. Why would someone making a copy of the Revelation scroll make such a number change? “Perhaps the change was intentional, seeing that the Greek form Neron Caesar written in Hebrew characters (nrwn qsr) is equivalent to 666, whereas the Latin form Nero Caesar (nrw qsr) is equivalent to 616.” A Latin copyist might have thought that 666 was an error because Nero Caesar did not add up to 666 when transliterated into Latin. He then changed 666 to 616 to conform to the Latin rendering since it was generally accepted that Nero was the Beast. In either case, a Hebrew transliteration nets 666, while a Latin spelling nets 616. Nero was the “man” and either 666 or 616 was his number.

I noticed that earth moves at an average speed of 666 mph around the sun.
The bible warns of a beast that bears the number 666.
Maybe mother earth is not so motherly after all. Earth is beautiful, but very deceptive (like the devil). What alien would want to camp here, it sucks.
Conclusion: Earth = Hell =Devil = Brittany Spears = Suffering = Torture = Hannity and Combs = Burning forever.
2nd Conclusion: The bible tales is not from earth but from another planet.
