Unless you live under a rock, you probably have heard lots of crap about it being 6-6-06 today and, since 666 has somehow become associated with the antichrist, it has been foretold in Revelations or on some informercial that the devil's son will be born today to lead the forces of evil against the forces of good. That would explain why the Devil Rays are playing the Angels in major league baseball today. The outcome of that game should be interesting but not prophetic.
I saw the original version of The Omen on June 6, 1976. The devil's son Damien was born in that movie on 6-6/76. Nothing truly evil transpired except a few really bad sequels. I don't plan to see the new version of The Omen that releases today. I think the whole 666 hype is a load of horse pucky. I have come to believe that all revelations fall in the same category. I don't believe much in predictions. I do believe in the saying, "Shit happens."
This is not to say I don't believe in ill omens. For example, blogger.com is cursed and has been fighting me tooth and nail to thwart me from publishing this post about 666. I tend to think they are cursed from too much activity on their servers rather than it being 6-6-06.
People are always seeing signs in everything. It wasn't long after the last 6-6-76 revelation that I read something about barcodes being the sign of the beast. I suppose if your baby was born with a barcode on his butt, you might think that, but as far as I know, barcodes are applied to people later in life and can be traced to Walmart. Come to think of it, maybe barcodes are the sign of the beast.
I don't think people really should go to so much trouble to look for the devil. I think there is actually a bit of the devil in all of us. It's that part of you that won't let someone merge in heavy traffic. Or it's that desire to turn around all of the "Do Not Disturb" signs you see in a hotel hallway so they read, "Make Up Room Now," instead. Or maybe it is that uncontrollable desire to pop bubblewrap.
But for me, the devil is Photoshop.
