but how many cubits is it?

The Distance of the Beast = 666.666 cubits.

0.2857 verst (Russian versta, верста)

0.0631 league

1.6447 cables

15.1515 chains

360 Texas vara

0.168 Scottish mile

8.396 Irish forrach

533.333 Prussian ells

145.433 Maltese qasbiet - remember there is a bill proposing to expand this to 218.15 qasbiet.


Of course, the right number, in any unit or system, would be zero.

And there's the Mosin Nagant measurement: 428.57 arshins

I know most religious folks tend to be on our side already, but I like the idea of using the "666 cubits" argument to get the rest of them on our side.

Government is the devil.

LOL! Most of us are on the side of 'right' and constitutional :) Btw, where I come from you get a bible and a pistol at age 5, not joke.
