2006年6月6日

有人认为这是一个天大的好日子,都是“六“啊。

不过,在西方宗教文化中,666其实是一个邪恶的数字。根据ask.yahoo.com上面一篇文章介绍,666之所以邪恶是源自圣经。根据圣经的预言篇,在世界末日(end of all time),正邪之间将有一场大战,”the beast”,也就是上帝的敌人、邪恶的一方,将使用一个特定的数字666来标示他的追随者。所以,在google或者yahoo里,查找“666,the number of the Beast”,会有一大堆的网页出现。

所以说,信基督的可不会认为今天是六六大顺的日子。

Why is the number 666 associated with the devil?

Nadir

Dear Nadir:

The nefarious connotations of 666 weren’t invented by some heavy metal band — they are rooted in the Bible.

The final book of the New Testament is Revelation, and for centuries theologians have pondered its highly symbolic, prophetic language. Revelation tells of impending Armageddon, an end of all time, when a great war will be fought between good and evil, and God will triumph. In Revelation, “the beast,” also called the Antichrist, personifies evil.

Revelation, Chapter 13 speaks of the beast and how to identify his followers. According to verses 16 and 17, they will have the mark or the name or number of the beast on their right hands or foreheads. Verse 18 introduces the number 666 itself: “Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

It’s unclear why the specific number 666 is the number of the beast. According to Dial-the-Truth Ministries, the number 6 is the number of man because in the Bible, God created man on the sixth day. Elsewhere in the Bible (Matthew 16:23), Satan is described as being “man-centered” (as opposed to God-centered). Thus the devil’s number would be a twist on man’s number. This is just one theory, and the number 666 has generated plenty of debate.

    《凶兆2006》创下有史以来周二最高票房!

    本周二是06年6月6日,这是一百年才有一次的日子,而在西方“666”是撒旦的印记,在《圣经·启示录》第十三章第十六段写着:

    “他又叫众人,无论大小贫富,自主的,为奴的,都在右手上,或是在额头上,受一个印记。除了那受印记的,有了兽名,或有兽名数目的,都不得作买卖。这里有智慧。凡有聪明的,可以算计兽的数目-因为这是人的数目,他的数目是 666”

    一般影片不是在周三就是在周五上映,而二十世纪福克斯则很聪明的把《凶兆2006》(The Omen)安排在这样一个日子上映,结果票房创下了有史以来周二开画的最好成绩——12,633,666美元,不知是不是巧合,末尾的数字恰好是“666”!

    《凶兆》翻拍自1976年理查德·唐纳的同名影片,讲叙了一对美国大使夫妇领养了一个来历不明的婴儿Damien,婴儿的头顶有着象征撒旦的666记号,在发生一连串的离奇命案之后,大使发现这个小孩原来是恶魔之子……

    该片导演是凭借动作片《深入敌后》、《凤凰劫》而成名的约翰•摩尔(John Moore),主演是里夫·施雷伯(Liev Schreiber)和朱丽娅·斯蒂尔斯(Julia Stiles)。

    《凶兆》周二首映的1263万美元成绩击败了2001年威尔·史密斯(Will Smith)的《拳王阿里》(Ali)成为周二首映票房最高的电影,而且它也击败了喜剧片《拜见亲家》(Meet the Fockers)在周二创下的最高票房1262.9万美元的成绩,成为周二票房最高的电影。
