God-fearing villagers snub "satanic" bar codes

If I remember correctly, the 666 reference in bar codes has to do with dividing the overall code into 2 parts - one that designates the company - one that designates the product. In order for a scanner to recognize that it is reading a valid code, the number 6 is placed at the beginning and at the end of the UPC. The 3rd 6 is used as the division marker in the middle.

Every single bar code in the entire western world uses the 666 marking system.

God-fearing villagers snub "satanic" bar codes

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A hundred residents of a Russian village have refused to switch to new passports because they believe the documents' bar codes contain satanic symbols, state television reported on Wednesday.

"We believe these new passports are sinful," Valentina Yepifanova, an elderly resident of the village Bogolyubovo, told Rossiya television as she clutched an old, tattered passport she said she wanted to keep.

"They have these bar codes and people say they contain three sixes. We are against that."

Some residents of Bogolyubovo, which means "God-loving" in Russian, have also stopped collecting their pensions at the local post office because the payment slips also have bar codes that might contain the mark of the devil, Rossiya TV reported.
