       14. A "prophetic" preacher notices that the square root of the sum of
    the numeric representations of the letters S-T-O-P (sigma-tau-omicron-pi in
    Greek), multiplied by 40 (the number of testing), and divided by 4 (the four
    corners) equals 666, the dreaded "mark of the beast." All STOPS are
    therefore satanic.
