Hey there, David MacCormack writes. I'm sure 1001 anal retentive people emailed you telling you "how wrong the Bill Gates is the devil - - whacky numerologist 'proves'" story was (Five, actually --Ed). I had a friend who jumped at it, and another with a pretty nifty reply. I thought you might enjoy it. Joe Geyer says By my count it should read this: B = 66 I=73 L=76 L=76 SPACE = 32 G=71 A=65 T=84 E=69 S=83 SPACE=32 I=73 I=73 I=73 Total = 946 not 666 and if you take out the spaces Total = 882 Of course, if everyone TYPED IN CAPS that would be the case, however, most names are written like: Bill Gates III which would be: B=66 i=105 l=108 l=108 space = 32 G=71 a=97 t=116 e=101 s=115 space=32 I=73 I=73 I=73 total = 1170 not 666 and if you take out the spaces Total = 1106 Of course then we could get into his real name of William...Even if you stretched and made the "I"'s 1's the value would not be "1" it would be "49" for each "I" or "1". And why would a numerologist be using a computer ASCII chart for numerology??? Erik Dickelman writes: I accept the 882 result. So start with the devil: 882 - 666 = 216 Well 212 is boiling and that's generally accepted as the temperature of HELL: 216 - 212 = 4 We have 4 left: These are for the 4 horseman of the Apocalypse See, it still works. ®
