For the people who worry about such things as numerology, the number 666 is significant as it supposedly is the Number of the Beast.  Now this is not universally accepted; some say it might be 616.  Anyway, it's supposed to be a particularly inauspicious number.

Some people try to get this number changed if it is on their badges, addresses, or in other forms.  However, just to be safe, these numerophobics* should consider others:

Suppose they got the number of the beast entirely wrong, and some other number was the real culprit?

Is a wilderbeast a pet of the beast?

"One of the biggest problems with the world today is that we have large

groups of people who will accept whatever they hear on the grapevine, just

because it suits their worldview - not because it is actually true or because

they have evidence to support it. The really striking thing is that it would not

take much effort to establish validity in most of these cases. But people prefer reassurance to research."
