"666" marks his forum!

I'm sure it's not the same for everyone, because many of us have different browser settings, but right now on my screen the PC&E forum says that it is displaying "Page 1 of 666."

Somewhere, Plot Device is reading this with a devilish smirk on her face saying, "believe me now, Opty?"

Yeah, mine also says 1 of 666.

6 + 6 + 6 = 18

I also noticed that this happened on December 6th.

12 + 6 = 18.

The British Comics Database is growing. Or mutating. I'm not quite sure which, yet.

And.... there is a thread on Page 666 entitled "The Harmony of Science and Religion," created by none other than Opty.

Now that's freaky.

It was my birthday yesterday. I am now officially one year older than Jesus.

Does this mean I'm the Antichrist?

I've been saying my daughter is six rather than "six in a month" since sometime in November, but her birthday was yesterday, too.

She was born on 12/06/06, and yesterday she turned 6 years old.

Today is exactly 2 weeks prior to 12/21/12

Two weeks is 2 X 7 (as far as the number of days)

Two 7's in a row until Doomsday.

The 666 appears a fortnight prior to Doomsday.

It MUST mean something! (It's a sign!)
