06/06/06 – The Bible's Book of Revelation calls 666 the number of the beast, so more than a few eyebrows were raised as June 6, 2006, approached. In the days prior, the evangelical Raptureready.com website said the day had a "rapture index" of 156, suggesting that it was "fasten your seatbelts" time, The Associated Press reported.
