The devil needs to troll people by coming up with a new "mark of the beast".  How about 652, 839, or 241?

I mean; there's no reason it has to be 666, is there?  Other than because some silly old book said so.
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

I can almost feel sorry for this guy; his superstitions are making his life miserable, if that was really the cause of him quitting.

On the other hand, I've been out of work for over a year, despite what I consider diligent searching. That someone would forgo a steady paycheck over such irrationality is baffling to me.

I've just finished part of a chapter in one of my stories at exactly 666 words. If this dude heard about it, he'd probably try to stone me. And not the good kind of stoning.

On a more serious note, why should this affect my opinion of other theists?
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Typical. And it's not so much stupidity alone. It's the meme.

The article I read said the nut's employer quickly fixed the error and promised the nut a new, renumbered form within a few days.

Then there is something seriously wrong with the employer.

This story doesn't surprise me at all.  I used to work for a cellular phone company some years back, and we often had customers who, when getting their phone number after buying their phone, wanted to change it because it had three sixes in a row in it somewhere.

Lots of people are irrational.  It's the same reason that buildings routinely used to not have 13th floors (and sometimes still do, although mercifully this one bit of stupidity seems to be fading).

I was born on a Friday the 13th.  Some people don't like me around.

One time on the check-out line in the supermarket the lady in front on me had an order thst came to $6.66, she got all nervous bought some gum or candy to change the numbers. People are fucking weird

That's how old Jesus was when he died.
