Just received a bizarre email from a friend of mine (produced verbatim below). The gist is that the bite taken out of the apple in the Apple logo and the $666.66 sale price of the Apple I when it was released in July 1976 together constitute some kind of satanic message.
Satan temted Adam and eve to take a bite out of the apple so the would have divine knowlege or be illuminated. price of Apple I $666
An interesting observation and probably the basis for some bitchin’ chain letters over the years (please do NOT forward this to everyone in your address book!!!), but before the party gets out of hand I’d like to piss on the campfire a little:
- There is no mention of an apple in the book of Genesis. Fruit yes. Apple no.
- There is no God. There is no Satan. There is also no Loch Ness monster, boogie man, Easter bunny, Santa Claus, or fairies at the bottom of the garden. People who believe this crap are idiots, and Steve Jobs is nobody’s fool. Trust me on this.
Have a nice day!
