It's a mistake, the original number is now believed to be 616, the Devil's number.
Incidentally, if you call 666 in the UK a Policeman turns up walking on his hands.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast[how many are under his power]: for it is the number of a man[it's people]; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.[decimal 66.6=percentage of the world population 66.6% or 2/3 of the world,the other 1/3 of the world claim a connection with God.]
All people in your immediate family [legally under marriage,your offspring],have your last name,so they are the number of your name.
To see this term used in the Bible,so that we understand how God uses the term,see Numbers 1.

There's several opinions but it is known that the Israelites were very number oriented (like modern numerologists). The bible says:
"Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six." (Rev. 13:18)
Many biblical scholars agree that this refers to Nero, the scourge of early Christianity. This is arrived at by taking the letters of Nero's Latin name and assigning a number to them and adding them up to equal 666.
There are other theories however. Hope this helps.
1) Triple 6 (hat-trick?)
2) Six hundred and Sixty Six

Tony Blair is deffo The Beast. I'm sure if I tinker around with his name long enough a la Countdown I can prove it, but I think his history in Iraq is sufficient. Carol Vorderman could totally prove it.

Oh! You weren't joking....
Where I once lived in a San Diego suburb, there was a building on a very narrow corner lot (two streets came together at about a 60 degree angle rather than the usual 90 degrees). The number on the building was 666, declaimed in big numerals on the building itself...which housed (no kidding) a fundamentalist Christian church.
I once attended a potluck dinner there for the free food--it was a time when 37 cents was a lot of money to me--but couldn't bring myself to ask any of the members about that number. Feared I'd either offend 'em or fall down laughing and not be able to quit before the entire congregation stomped me to death.
Canberra, Australia's capital city (for those of you who didn't know that), has an AM radio station, channel 666. It is run by the ABC, and is basically a talk show like news and current affairs.

The Riddle: The numbers: (666 and 616) In Scripture (Revelation 13:18) “The name of the man is in the number!” The information given is not that of my own wisdom and understanding but that which belongs to God the Lord Yeshua from the Holy Spirit. I boast only of that being of God...
