This is one of those "too good to be true", or "too spooky to be a coincidence" stories.
As most of you know Keanu Reeves stars in a movie about Hell and demons in "Constantine". I Bergen, Norway, the movie was on six time during the premier day, and the number of people who saw it was... 666.
Elisabeth Halvorsen at Bergen cinema admits it is a bit weird. "Considering the content of the movie, it was rather an interesting coincidence. However I'm not worried about the number, as I'm not superstitious. I thought it was more funny than spooky."
Reverend Torsten Mentzoni, says "This is a special result, but I see it as a pure coincidence, and nothing else.The movie itself does not represent an Anti christ message at all.
According to the Reverend, the number only occurs in the Bible once. In John 13:18. The number 666 is used as a reference to the beast, or the Anti christ. "In Jesus' time it was normal to replace names with numbers. All the numbers had a certain value, and the person could be read from this number." says the reverend who also says that the number 666 doesn't play an important role in Christianity.
"If guns don't kill people, people kill people - does that mean toasters don't toast toast, toast toast toast?"

There used to be a federal highway US 666 in the USA that went through parts of Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. It was renumbered due to the high rate of sign theft and complaints from the 'holy rollers'.
