biblical lore is one of my areas of interest, especially prophetical texts.
so, of course, i did some research on the number of the beast.
let's start with the oldest possible references:
-According to historical record, the sumerian, akkadian and babylonian number system was base 12 (or six). i believe this was because the 'gods' and their hybrid offspring (nephilim) had 6 fingers (on each hand), as opposed to human equivalent with base 10 (or five), because we have 5 fingers (on each hand).
-The babylonian system is part of the beast system, as pointed out by the statue in the old testament book of Daniel, which describes history as a statue composed of various empires, starting with the babylonian empire and working forward in time. The statue of Nebuchadnezzar is sixty cubits high and six cubits wide. it was worshipped while playing six instruments.
-Using numerology, it equals "roman" in both biblical languages (hebrew and greek).

Well one thing is for sure. The beast is going to be a human.
