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. Subtract 3451 - the year Copernicus attacked the geocentric model, written backwards. This gives 90244. Subtract 97 - the year Vesuvius erupted and destroyed Pompeii, written backwards. This gives 90147. Subtract 344 - the year Attila the Hun attacked western Europe, written backwards. This gives 89803. Add 9271 to it - the smallest number expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways, written backwards. The result is 99074. Flip the number backwards, then divide by 13 - the symbol of bad luck. The outcome is 3623. The result is 1939 in octal - the year the Second World War has begun.QED.
