I don't suppose it matters to True Believers, but the term "antichrist" does NOT appear in Revelation. There are dozens of references to "the beast," but none to "The Antichrist." Only those who passionately rant on about the literal truth of the Bible have the wisdom to know that "the beast" of Revelation is actually some sort of non-literal euphemism for the "antichrist" mentioned in the short epistles of John. They are also able to reconcile the bizarre anatomic description of the "beast" in Revelation with Satan The Deceiver, which is good lest the rest of us be deceived into trusting a creature that looks like an extra in a cheap monster movie.
Okay, 666: divide by 3, symbolizing the trinity dividing and conquering evil; now with the quotient, 222, take the cube root, this time dividing and conquering again by a function of 3. The root is just over 6... which represents the double defeat of evil by the power of the trinity. COINCIDENCE??
