    Mothers expect Damien on 6/6/06Tony Allen-Mills FOR one group of expectant mothers, their due date holds an extra dimension of dread. The prospect of giving birth on June 6, 6/6/06, has prompted talk of spawning devil children on Armageddon day. A British self-help group that usually exchanges routine tips on parenting has turned its attention to the dangers of a date marked by the satanic symbol. For Hollywood and the worldwide entertainment industry it is by contrast a once-in-a- century opportunity to turn evil into gold. Leading the charge is 20th Century Fox, whose remake of The Omen, the classic 1970s horror film, will appear on June 6. The approach of the sixth day of the sixth month of a new century’s sixth year has prompted animated discussion among women participating in the website of Mother & Baby, a British parenting magazine. One pregnant woman, Francesca Renouf, said she had been so worried that she had booked a doctor’s appointment to ensure that she would avoid giving birth on the sixth. Others appeared to take the dangers less seriously. One woman, Emma Parker, wrote that she intends to call her baby Damien, after the satanic boy in The Omen. Another, Donna Magnante, said she would name her baby after Regan in The Exorcist. In America the marketing of the apocalypse is well under way. Slayer, one of America’s most popular heavy metal rock groups, will start its Unholy Alliance tour, subtitled Preaching to the Perverted. Crown Forum, a US publishing giant, has seized on 666 as the perfect date for the launch of Godless, a new anti-liberal political polemic by Ann Coulter, a prominent right-wing columnist. And inevitably the internet is awash with frenzied doomsday debate and 666 speculation, all reflecting America’s continuing obsession with angels, devils and the possible nature of heaven and hell. While some Armageddon believers fear that 6/6/06 will be “a day of satanic power” that may be marked by a comet hitting the Earth, others believe that the world is coming closer to what is widely known as “the rapture” — the moment the Lord calls the Christian faithful home and millions of born-again evangelicals will suddenly disappear from the Earth, leaving non-believers behind. On one popular evangelical website last week, a “rapture index” that calculates the likelihood of the Lord’s arrival stood at 156 — which the website declared was time to “fasten your seatbelts”. By contrast, another website claimed that the Antichrist had already arrived — he is supposedly George (six letters) Walker (six letters) Bush Jr (six letters), the president whose name adds up to 666. “The violence and destruction that began when Bush first entered office is now certain to culminate in the apocalypse, as predicted in the Bible over 2,000 years ago,” warned Stephen Hanchett at isbushantichrist.blogspot.com. The 666 phenomenon is based on a disputed passage from the Book of Revelation, which in several popular versions declares the “number of the beast” to be 666 — although some biblical scholars claim there was a mistranslation and the number should really be 616. Either way, John Moore, the Irish director of The Omen remake — entitled Omen 666 — realised that June 6 was too good a date to miss for a film about a sinister child named Damien who turns out to be the Antichrist. “It’s a fantastic marketing gimmick,” Moore said. “We figured if we could hit this date it would make it all the more interesting.” The only devils in Coulter’s book are abortion-loving Democrats, but that hasn’t stopped her publisher making the most of 666. Coulter, a tall blonde with a mean anti-liberal streak, is the bestselling author of How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must). Her new book, subtitled The Church of Liberalism, is reportedly even more bilious, with chapters such as “On the seventh day God rested and Liberals schemed”, and “The holiest sacrament: abortion”. Joining Slayer on the musical front is the cult death metal group Deicide, which calls itself “Satan’s favourite band”. Its latest album, The Stench of Redemption, is scheduled for release on what it calls “the most unholy of days, 6/6/06”. The majority of Americans may well conclude that if the last 6/6/06 (in 1906) failed to end in apocalypse, they might survive this one, too. But the current vogue for horror films suggests that the omens for Fox’s Omen 666 may be bright whatever the release date. Unless of course anyone notices the numerological significance of “Fox”. As one contributor to Arianna Huffington’s blog pointed out last week, F is the sixth letter of the alphabet, O is the 15th letter (1+5=6) and X is the 24th letter (2+4=6). Could Fox be the studio of the Beast?

    Good article. I think it highlights the obsession with the idea of the number 666. Which, I cannot speak for everyone else here, has no real significance as a so called "satanic" number for me. I've said it before, and I'll say it again...the use of 666 stands for the 6th vial, the 6th seal, and the 6th trump found in the book of Revelation.

    I was just looking over the search terms of the site and we're returning a lot of results for June 06, 2006. Some of the phrases along with it are very disturbing. I'd say at least 15-20 people have come to this site concerning the topic and many are concerned about what will take place.If you see this thread and are concerned about this topic, please do not hesitate to sign up and contact me and we'll talk things over. I cannot stress how important it is to understand the concept of the number 666 and that it in no way stands for this being a satanic number.If anyone tries to tell you otherwise, here is the wisdom of our Lord:Matthew 24:32-3632 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.God Bless!

    Well tomorrow is June 06 I hope its like y2k and nothing happens I would also like to remind you that this is just another day on the calander it has nothing to do with Bible end times or the beast.I am a little concerned, about all the crazy's out there that may think it means somthing or will try to use this date to futher some radical cause.I would ask everyone to be extra alert for any odd behavior around you and report it to your local P.D. I would also like to ask everyone to take a moment to pray that God watch over us and make this day a non-event. stay safe an God Bless

    7 June 2006BORN AT 6AM ON 06/06/06, HIS MUM WAS INDUCED FOR 6 DAYS, HE WEIGHS 6LBS 6OZ AND HE'S CALLED.. DAMIEN By Richard Smith HORROR film fan Suzanne Cooper yesterday named her baby Damien after the devil child in the The Omen, who was also born on June 6. Suzanne went one better than the movie by hitting the full Number of the Beast with the date - 6/6/06. Special needs teacher Suzanne, 36, was also induced for six days before Damien arrived at 6.59am, tipping the scales at a spine-chilling 6lb 6oz. She said: "We are overjoyed about the baby. The Omen is one of our favourite films and that's why I was keeping my legs crossed for a birth on the 6th. "It does seem a bit weird I suppose, but he's a perfect baby - nothing at all like Damien in The Omen." Dad Michael rushed Suzanne to hospital in Bristol last Wednesday afternoon after she began suffering back pains. The baby was due on Saturday and doctors decided to induce her straight away, but little Damien refused to arrive until yesterday. Suzanne went into labour in the early hours and Damien was born shortly after 6am. Electrical engineer Mike said: "It was a devil of a birth - a bit of a horror show. Once she went into labour it was straightforward, but six days in hospital is a long time to wait. "Suzanne and I love watching horror films and we were both keeping our fingers crossed that he would be born yesterday. "It took a fair bit of persuasion for Suzanne to let us call him Damien but it seems fitting considering the date." The baby also arrived on the day the remake of the 1976 film The Omen was released in the cinemas. A spokesman at Bristol's Southmead Hospital said: "We would all like to say congratulations on the birth of their new baby. mirror.co.ukYA. just knew it was gonna happen somewhere(lol)
