Quote# 66557

Ok, I'm not sure really what to make of this, but given the recent events and the whole apocalypse thing people are talking about, (I'm not religious, btw, but a little intrigued now) and people even saying Obama is the Antichrist, I found this tonight, and it sent chills down my spine.

About CPS Chicago Public Schools serves approximately 407,000 students in 666 schools. It is the nation’s third-largest school district.

This is an excerpt from Chicago Public Schools webpage. link below

Chicago Public Schools

Interesting number, don't you think? Why not 665 or 667, or any other number? and this is an EXACT number of schools in the Chicago district, right from their own .edu website.

I don't know. What I do know, is that there are a lot of speculations about the Illuminati, Free masons, and their link to Satan, etc... as well as the 2012 theories, and much more that is all over this website. Now don't get me wrong, I personally don't believe that he is the Antichrist, but thought I would share this with you, and get some insight and opinions from my fellow ATSers. (BTW, I am in the middle of some studying on a theory of my own about the Antichrist, and who he is, but I am trying to cross reference some things to try to solidify my "theory" and will hopefully have it up soon, and again, it is only a theory of possibility if in fact the antichrist were real, and more of a talking point/ discussion)

If you are truly not religious then the only significance 666 should have for you is that it keeps 665 and 667 from banging into each other.

Well given that a prominent Mayan community leader has recently come forward to dismiss the whole 2012 thing as bullshit, I don't see what potential mileage is left in it.

I love how people freak out about the number 666 just because it's written in an old book. Especially since the actual translation is 616. It reminds me of Christians freaking out because their movie ticket numbers for "Passion of the Christ" had the sequence 666 in them.

Just tell the school board that they need to close a school or open a new one, then all the psycho Christian conspiracy theorists won't be all in a tizzy.

And I'm already so freaking tired of hearing about all the 2012 shit. It's Y2K all over again. Everybody's going to get hyped up & paranoid, but the date will come & go with nothing exceptional happening.

668 - The number of the neighbor of the beast.

Why not 667 schools? If you've got 667 schools, then before opening the most recent one, you had 666. In fact, if you've got 700 or 800 schools, then unless you opened batches of them simultaneously, you must at some point have had 666.

To you, this may seem otherworldly and mysterious. Other people call it "counting".

And by 2012 the number may no longer be 666...

Oh yes, the theory is a good talking point/discussion. I would like to contribute to it and say er, umm, hmmm! Well actually, there's not a lot to say about it really, other than, perhaps, that the theory's originator is a numbskull.

Maybe you should look into religion.

I imagine that someone like you could have a field day with it.....

10/17/2009 11:13:00 AM


If it was 667 you'd have an unnecessary school. If it was 665 you'd need to open another one. That's why 666. Sorry if the math's too hard for you to follow.

10/17/2009 11:18:33 AM


Ah,but the number of 666 is magical and is found right in your kitchen. Go to your microwave oven and key in a number on the timer three times. You would get something like this:

111 == 1 min 11 secs
222 == 2 min 22 secs
333 == 3 min 33 secs
444 == 4 min 44 secs
555 == 5 min 55 secs
666 == 7 min 06 secs!

666 is a bigger number than 700!
It's an omen, stock up on tinfoil!

This shit again?

You will never figure out who I am!

The number of Chicago schools always changes. Don't mistake your conjecture for genuine inquiry.

The Illuminati if they exist have better things to do than worry about how many schools a school district has and definitely wouldn't want to excite conspiracy theorists by using numbers like "666" deliberately.

@ Doubting Thomas:

I'm with you, bro. I plan to celebrate Xmas in 2012 among family, as usual, and wish them Happy New Year come Jan. 1st, 2013. There will be just as much apocalypse on Dec. 20, 2012 as there was on Dec. 31st, 1999, that is, zilch.

10/18/2009 9:23:04 PM


Jesus H. Christ, it's just a number!

Mix-And-Match Apocalypse! 666 and the Antichrist from the Christian division, 2012 from the Mayan division, Illuminati from every-fucking-where. Pick one and run with it, buddy, then maybe you'll be about half as irritating as you currently are.

10/19/2009 9:09:46 AM


@Doubting Thomas

As an IT guy, I would like to point out that Y2K really *WAS* a problem and that a whole lot of people worked their asses off to make sure that nothing major happened when the date switch occured.

As opposed to 2012 which is completly baseless

I'm not saying Obama's the Antichrist, I'M JUST SAYIN'

Yes, I'm aware that it could have actually been a problem if not for programmers working to make sure it wasn't. But you should have heard all the hype. People were saying that not only would your car not run, but aircraft would fall out of the sky and even your coffee maker wouldn't work because of the date setting. Which wouldn't matter anyway because we weren't going to have any electricity. There were nutters running around stockpiling food, gasoline, batteries, and such. I heard on a radio program one guy talking about being careful about running a chain saw while cutting up firewood after Y2K because your neighbors will hear it and know that you have gasoline. But even up to New Year's Eve Dec. 31 1999 people were running around all paranoid.

Seems like someone always has to come up with a new doomsday every so often. And now the new one is 2012. What's worse is that they made an end-of-the-world disaster movie called "2012." So even people who didn't buy into the hype probably will now.

At least his source is correct, unlike a lot of these. It doesn't forgive his psychotic paranoid interpretation about the significance of it.

10/19/2009 2:47:15 PM


One time my total at the supermarket added up to $66.6... I must be the antichrist!

Will Obama stop being the antichrist when they build the next new school in Chicago?

10/19/2009 5:59:16 PM


The Chicago Public Schools are evil in and of themselves, not because of some numerology bullshit like this.

10/19/2009 7:47:46 PM

lol what

Why not 665 or 667, or any other number?

Because... because that's how many schools there are.

I'm not even sure what thought processes are taking place in this person's head, or what he expects people to respond.

10/20/2009 12:37:07 AM

Doubting Thomas

It doesn't matter. You can show a crazy person anything with the number 666 in it and they'll think it's part of the conspiracy. 666 just seems to be that magic number that they love to go nuts over because a mistranslation in the bible says it's the number of the beast.
