Letter: Reader: Target hack only possible because of computers

Editor,

By now we are all familiar with the chaos caused when Target credit cards were hacked and information taken on millions of accounts. Sooner or later more large companies will face similar problems.

It was all made possible by computers — it could not happen by an other means.

Let’s take the alphabet and assign each letter an increasing value based on the number six, i.e., A=6, B=12, C=18, etc.

Isn’t it “interesting” that the word “computer” adds up to 666?

Significant? Could this be a warning that we are approaching end times, if we are not already in them?

Note, the value of the phrase “Mark of the beast” also adds up to 666.
