Hello zerotransfer, I've always enjoyed religious debates, but the list probably tires of them, and if we keep this up, one of the list admins will probably tell us to 'take it outside'. But as a final followup, there are sacred numbers in every religion, as far as I know, and if we in the IT sector, which is very number heavy, paid attention to what superstition somebody may hold with a certain number, our jobs would become ever more complicated.
I don't mean to belittle your religion, but I can't imagine what life must be like to be offended by such a trivial thing as a certain number =) -- Justin Hopper [EMAIL PROTECTED] UNIX Systems Engineer http://www.spry.com On Fri, 2003-02-21 at 13:15, [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: > Obviously I don't think it is mythology or I wouldn't believe it :-) > > Actually it is not my place to tell people what numbers they are and are not > allowed to use. > More than the number, the issue for me is the motivation of why that number > was used. > Why use one of the only three digit numbers that I know of that is > associated with evil to at least one belief? > See my point? > > zerotransfer > <>< > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Justin Hopper" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Sent: Friday, February 21, 2003 2:42 PM > Subject: Re: Cvsup Handbook Example > > > > Sorry, this of course should have read 'after 665 and before 667'. > > > > On Fri, 2003-02-21 at 11:13, Justin Hopper wrote: > > > Hello unamed person, > > > > > > For the rest of the world that doesn't follow Christian Mythology, 666 > > > is just the number after 667 and before 665.
