  WorldNetDaily: 666 wrong number of prophetic beast?
While many Bible have footnotes saying the number translated from the original Greek could be 616, experts say new photographic evidence of an ancient fragment of papyrus from Revelation indeed indicates the number is indeed 616, instead of 666.
The main researcher promoting the 616 claim is David Parker, professor of New Testament Textual Criticism and Paleography at the University of Birmingham in England.
Parker points out the possibility of 616 was considered by the second century church father Irenaeus, who rejected it.

 Laputan Logic - Antichrist 616   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This alternative formulation for the Number of the Beast as 616 is very ancient and is attested to by St Irenaeus of Lyon who, writing (in Greek) in the middle of the second century AD, attributed it to scribal error:
But there are other possible explanations as well, for example, there are apparently two different spellings of the word "beast" in Hebrew which also produce the numbers 666 and 616.
Modern geeks (as opposed to ancient Greeks) will immediately recognise this trick of turning a names into numbers as a form of hash function which is a standard software technique for speeding up text comparisons (amongst other things).

The 616 includes 6 rotatable filter positions, with filter rotation driven by a small, internal stepper motor powered through the CCD head.
The system automatically initializes itself when connected, and, after first-time-only instruction from the user as to the relative locations of the color filters, operation of the filter system can be either completely automatic, with exposure times and filter rotation directed by the imager software, or manual, depending on the user's wishes.

 Beast’s real mark devalued to ‘616′
Satanists, apocalypse watchers and heavy metal guitarists may have to adjust their demonic numerology after a recently deciphered ancient biblical text revealed that 666 is not the fabled Number of the Beast after all.

Where more conventional versions of the Bible give 666 as the “number of the beast,” or the sign of the anti-Christ whose coming is predicted in the book’s apocalyptic verses, the older version uses the Greek letters signifying 616.
