[Regarding a possible "Internet ID."]

I see it as a sign because the Hebrew letter "vav," which is "w" in our language is equivellent to the number 6...a theory could be made that "www" = "666" and therefore the future Mark of the Beast COULD be a personal Internet ID for all people.

Or it could just be that "www" stands for "world-wide-web."

I love how you're using the devil's internet to post your ignorant drivel...

...a personal Internet ID for all people.

Except that's not what Obama was proposing. Not even close.

He proposed there be a national database for security purposes (ie. passwords, security certificates, etc.). That's not even remotely similar.

Let me ask you this: How could a personal Internet ID system be implemented when not everyone in the country 1) uses computers and 2) gets on the Internet?

That's actually pretty clever.

1/21/2011 5:22:16 AM


Internet != WWW.

And isn't this numerology thing something a good christian shouldn't do? Although I'm not surprised that you're seeing patterns in totally unreleated matters.

If the world wide web is a tool of the devil, than why are you posting on it?

That theory would be wrong. The Hebrew numbering system doesn't use place value. Three sixes are 18, not 666.

(By the way, 18 is considered a good number, since the letters in the word for "life" add up to 18.)

I bet this numbskull doesn't even realize that there are websites that DON'T have www in front of them.

Vav makes "v" not "w"

I'm not sure if there even is a "w" in Hebrew.

1/21/2011 5:55:02 AM


Hebrew alphabet fail. Vav is V, not W. And even if it were, I thought that the number of the beast was six hundred threescore and six, so a representation of three consecutive sixes is not the same as the number of the beast.

6 1 6 !!!!!!!!!!

EDIT: Whoops. Don't refresh after you've posted

Doctor Whom

The letter vav was originally pronounced /w/ and occasionally still is.


The rest of Dani D's argument is still made out of weapons-grade wrongness, though.

Or it could mean that you will go to hell because you are on the internet. Better get off right now. And never come back.

Or, it could just be that "www" stands for World Wide Web.

*edit* Drat, Percy beat me to it. But it never ceases to amaze me that crazy fundies claim that the internet is evil and Satanic... on the internet.

Free hint to non-technogeeky Americans: It's a widely known fact that some other countries already have a national electronic ID card infrastructure (not much used in the Web, obviously, but used in other services). The sky hasn't fallen in those countries yet. If you want to demonstrate that electronic IDs would make the sky fall in America, you need to revise the arguments to fit the facts at hand (to wit, you need to explain why the sky will fall in America and not in other countries). Thank you.

Subjective validation won that round, eh Dani D?

1/21/2011 6:40:32 AM


Hebrew Numerals are a lot more complicated than DaniD thinks they are.

1/21/2011 6:50:18 AM


and I thought I had too much time on my hands sheesh get a hobby or maybe even a life

1/21/2011 7:00:33 AM


I only have a minimal knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet and I could immediately spot the fail.

1/21/2011 7:00:35 AM


Oh, everything is the mark of the beast, or so I'm told.

1/21/2011 7:01:09 AM


You know that "www" is an arbitrary subdomain, right? Most sites don't even require it--www.domain.tld generally is an alias to domain.tld.

1/21/2011 7:25:27 AM


I think i should mention a thing called an "IP address", but then your head would explode.

1/21/2011 7:29:11 AM
