[livejournal.com profile] raven_andubh posted this story about some whackadoos in Texas who think that US highway 35 is the "holy highway" mentioned in Isaiah 35:8.

As I commented in her post, I decided to take a closer look. The word Isaiah uses for "highway" is מסלול (maslul). Using the kabbalistic practice of gematria (essentially Jewish mystical numerology) this word has a value of 166. If we change the word to "your highway" (מסלולך, maslulekha) guess what the number comes out to? (Hint -- the extra letter is worth an even 500.)

They might want to think twice about whose highway they've chosen as their pilgrimage site.*

(* Yes, I know the number of the Beast is probably 616. Still, they likely don't know that.)
