Tim Tebow tweets that tonight is the 666th MNF game … what does it mean?

The facts are these: 1. Tim Tebow noted on Twitter that tonight is the 666th Monday Night Football game telecast. 2. According to the Book of Revelation (13:17-18), the number 666 is the number of the beast, a hell creature associated with an apocalyptic vision. 3. Tebow has been known to read the Bible from time to time. Here’s the tweet:






What is Romans 8:37-39, you ask?

New International Version (NIV)

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Is Tebow saying that the Houston Texans are minions of Satan (their logo is, after all, a set of horns), and that only a strong belief in God and His wonders can “conquer” the “demons” and save the Jets?

Or perhaps he’s indicating that the 666th MNF telecast will bring the End Times for Mark Sanchez, and Tebow will ascend to starting quarterback to begin the resurrection of the New York franchise.

Or he could be predicting Houston’s total offensive yardage for the game: 666 yards.

Hmm. It makes total sense that the 666th Monday Night Football game would occur in what the Mayans say is Earth’s final year of existence. This game could be like a Dan Brown novel, only bigger, and without so many flying priests.

    Somehow I think nothing extraordinary will happen in tonight’s game but I will be watching as I do as much as I can. I think the world will remain here whether the Mayans thought it would end or not. The Mayans apparently did not see their own demise, so why would we believe they saw the end of the world?

    It will be fun to watch the game tonight to look for secret signs and such. Maybe if we play the video back of the game backwards there may be a message in it for us all? ha.

    What Einstein wrote about religion…

    ‘The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish’.

    Couldn’t have been better said.

    For those of you who ‘dont get it’

    Religion is a bunch of crap

      Einstein also wrote:

      “As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous firgure of the Nazarene. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.” Saturday Evening Post, Oct 26, 1929

      So what?
      Because newspeople don’t have anything better to report on than hang off this guys nuts and wait to pounce on every word, tweet of facebook posts he says? Please, spend some time on our men and women still over in Afghanistan (yes, we’re still over there and getting killed-hope you didn’t forget about it) than what Tim Tebow has to say.

    It meant that as usual, the Jets had no chance in hell in last night’s game (although the Jets did keep it a lot closer than most expected).

    Superstitious claptrap. It’s a number, nothing more. By the way, it’s an Arabic number. Granted, pre-Muslim, but from the Arabs just the same.

    Oh no. He’s a reptillian. Illuminati. He’s in the New World Order. It all makes so much sense now. Sorry for the sarcasm, but I know some whack job was thinking that last night.

    Hey Rick. Didn’t know if you checked the comments on old items or had the capability to do updates, but check this out courtesy of USA Today and (which I gleaned from tbt*, the Tampa Bay Times freebie paper).

    After the game, Mark Sanchez’s QB rating is now 66.6, he has 6 touchdowns, 6 interceptions, and is averaging 6.6 yards per attempt. AND, he wears number 6. (Ominous Duh duh duh plays in background). Curious.
