THE IRREFUTABLE PROOF: EVILFINDER IS EVILE V I L F I N D E R 5 22 9 12 6 9 14 4 5 18 <- letter numbers 5 4 9 3 6 9 5 4 5 9 <- all digits added \_____/ \_____/ \_____/ \_____/ \_____/ 9 3 6 9 5 <- final sum It is evident that "evilfinder" is symbolized by 93695. Divide by 7 - the number of deadly sins and the symbol of magic. The result is 13385. Write the number backwards, add 1714 - the year Henry Mill patented the typewriter. The number is now 60045. Subtract 1954 - the year the first FORTRAN computer program was executed. This gives you 58091. Write the number backwards, add 1859 - the year Charles Darwin published "On the Origin of Species". The number is now 20944. Subtract 5591 - the year Steve Jobs was born, written backwards. This gives 15353. When you take 1986 - the year of the Chernobyl disaster - then write it backwards and convert it to octal, you arrive at the very same result.Proof by the numbers.
