It's just a number...

A lot of people are freaking out because today is the sixth day of the sixth month of 2006 (666). Many Christian groups have taken a break from being angy at The Divinci Code to focus their animosity at the remake of The Omen. This make zero sense to me as the entire movie is about how much the devil sucks. They try to kill him. It's not like they find out their son is offspring of Satan and then take him to Chuck-E-Cheese and let him stay up all night in exchange for eternal life and a high ranking position in empire of the kingdom of lies. It's a two hour demon smear campaing, it's about removing satan from your life, it's the sort of thing Christian rock songs are made of.

Interesting fun fact from imbd.com:
"As part of its pre-release publicity campaign, and to point out the significance of 'the three sixes' as The Sign of Satan, the movie was sneak-previewed nationwide in the USA on 6 June 1976. While audiences inside the theatres were being scared witless by the film, theatre employees were out front, busily putting up specially made posters declaring: 'Today is the SIXTH day of the SIXTH month of Nineteen-Seventy-SIX!' Hokey though it was, the gimmick worked quite well, as many a theatre patron literally 'freaked-out' upon seeing those posters as they left the previews."

My point? We're all still here to see the remake! Okay, many people died during the twenty year period between the two movies, and I was born in 1977 so I wasn't there for the first one, but you get what I'm saying.

I don't believe in the devil. If I did (and I used to) I'm SURE he would not come on a day we were expecting him. He's the Devil. He's the biggest jerk in every plane of existance. He'll probally come on December 25th. Nobody would expect that AND he'd ruin Christmas for everbody....(and I was hopeing for an X-box 360)

So don't worry Christian doomsayers, the devil in not coming today and if by some....anti-miricle he does - nothing says eternal bliss like saying "I told you so" from heaven. It's win win for you no matter what happens.
