the "right hand" is the fingerprint, and the "forehead" is the retinal scan. Think of it from John's perspective. What he saw were people scanning their fingers and eyes, and he described it as best he could.

all it would take is a national rationing system like in time of worldwide disaster to make it true.
21 Dec 2012. I wish it were just silly Mayan prophecy, but it isn't. You will see prophecy fulfilled.

The number of the beast is meant to be understood using the concepts of the time in which it is relevant. In this case, my guess is ASCII. Maybe it's just coincidence, but:
B + I + L + L + G + A + T + E +S + III
66 + 73 + 76 + 76 + 71 + 65 + 84 + 69 + 83 + 3 = 666

I do not think that trying to use Greek numbering is relevant, though.

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
