666 and the devil

Does 666 actually have a relation to Satan or is it just associated with him due to pop culture?

As I understand it, it’s a judaeo-christian thing. So is the term “devil” and “satan”.

I you want to slip into christian language and thinking, go ahead and use xtian terms. Language defines how humans think, after all.

I think it’s ill advised, that stuff is so ubiquitous you can find yourself having xtian dogmatic beliefs (like "the devil’ being a sovereign entity, which it’s not, imo, it’s an egregore tightly embedded in religion) without questioning thier reality.
Before you know it you’re thinking like a sheeple. The JCI religion’s pull is strong - its enslaved billions for a good reason… I’d say stay away from using anything do do with it, but maybe that’s just my personal repulsion.

I agree with @Mulberry, it is a christian thing. According the the book of revelation, 666 is the number of the beast that came out of the earth during the apocalypse.

The Beast out of the Earth

11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth.(X) It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.(Y) 12 It exercised all the authority(Z) of the first beast on its behalf,(AA) and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast,(AB) whose fatal wound had been healed.(AC) 13 And it performed great signs,(AD) even causing fire to come down from heaven(AE) to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs(AF) it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived(AG) the inhabitants of the earth.(AH) It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.(AI) 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship(AJ) the image to be killed.(AK) 16 It also forced all people, great and small,(AL) rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,(AM) 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark,(AN) which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.(AO)

18 This calls for wisdom.(AP) Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e](AQ) That number is 666.

Helena is correct with the Revelation reference, but the 666 denotation as evil gained momentum among Christians during the time of the Roman Empire.

Why? Nero Claudius’s street address was literally 666 - after Rome decided it would be a good idea to assign numbers to street names - and being, well, Nero during the multiple burnings of Rome, it solidified the number as negative.

Nero died in June of 68 AD, about 30 years before the first draft of the Book Of Revelation was written, and Nero was renowned as being the most horrible tyrant and manipulative leader in memory at the time of the writing, so it made it a natural fit.

As far as I know it is a misconception of the number. It is not actually 666, but it is 616. It is the numeric value of the name of the Roman emperor Neron which was called a beast or something like that. Idk I’ve read that a long time ago

Flip the 6 around what do you get? lucifers number
