We all know that debt is a nasty thing, and too much of it can ruin you. Your credit rating, the FICO score which oddly ranges from 300 to 850 (kind of like your SAT scores, where you got 200 points just for writing your name on the paper) can make or break whether you can buy that car, house, or add that "infinity pool" to your deck -- you can afford one of those, right?
Well, now we understand just how truly evil it is. According to the folks at Credit Karma, the average U.S. credit rating is 666. Yes, the Mark of the Beast! According to the Book of Revelations (Rev. 13:16-18):
"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666." (emphasis added)
We've all been marked now, and the Antichrist is apparently here. Now go out and run up those credit card bills.
