This post was obviously written by satan.  Anybody with any sense can see it
just by axamining the numbers hidden throughout.

The first part has 13 (yes 13!) characters.  But that isn't the worst of it:
The entire line has twenty-four letters.  24=4*6.  Furthermore 2+4=6!  And
24=(2^3)*3, so it's prime factors are 2 and 3, 2*3=6!  So there are 3 sixes in
the first line, clearly a reference to 666.  Think this is a coincidence, then
look what happens next:

There are 6 sentances in this paragraph, and the word "to" appears 6 times.
Yet that is not all: the lines have lengths 61,64,62,64,61,62,68,69, and 13.
Note that the only line whose length does not have a 6 in it is 13!

Furthermore, 2 lines have length 64, that is 2^6.  And, the lines are line 2
and line 4, again 2+4=6.  Morover this gives a total of 524 characters in the
above paragraph.  5+2+4=11= the number of non-space characters in the last line.
524=(2^2)*131=2*2*131, but 2+2+1+3+1=9 which is the number of lines in the
paragraph!

The odds of this happening by coincidence are millions to one against.  The
second paragraph goes on likewise, but the above should be more than sufficient
proof.
