This question is to boost me past 666 questions to 667. Why are people superstitious about that number?

    I suspect you already know the reason (or you wouldn't care about getting past it yourself). It's long been associated with the xian 'devil', although that's myth. It does have symbolic meaning in the xian bible. You can read about it here http://www.uscatholic.org/articles/201309/what-666...  Wikipedia also has some info on how the number came to be associate with "Satan".

    I have reported this question with multiple troll accounts to get you back to 666.

    They ERRONEOUSLY think it stands for the devil.

    The devil's number is really 616. Nero is/was 666.

    This goes back to the Bible, wherein Chapter 13 of The Book of Revelation, it reads: "Let the one with understanding reckon the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.

    666 is called the "number of the Beast" in the Bible.   But in China, it's a lucky number.
