As many of you know, today is the 6th day of the 6th months of 2006, or 06. That's a big 666 if you ask me. USA Today will tell you a little more here. Tall Skinny Kiwi writes about it here.

But what is even more scary that the mark of the beast from the book of Revelation, is that the final (finally) book of the Left Behind Series debuts today. Here's chapter 1 for free. Read it now before the day of the Devil is complete. And now, before it's too late, join the prophecy club.

666watch has some great question and answers on the topic. Here's my favorite: Is "www" equal to "666" in Hebrew? Here's another good one: Internet Tax Plan or 666? 

Look, I'm no theologian and I don't know squat about the book of Revelation, but I can say that so many end-timers ahve come and gone that any prediction in modern times coming from Revelation that directly connect today's events (Iraq war, Eurpoean Union, internet) seem quite far fetched and is a real set up for disappointment and making Jesus look stupid. Furthermore, it hurts the Christian message.

Again, I am no scholar on eschatology, but I think what we need to know about the "end times" is that God's story has a good ending and people can opt into the story.
