As I tried to explain, it doesn't. He isn't Bill Gates 3, he's Bill
Gates the Third, abbreviated as III, which if you count as i's, do not
allow the sum of 666 for his whole name in ascii, so its merely
anti-Bill propaganda and not even true numerology, even if someone were
stupid enough to ascribe any credibility to neumerology in the first

If that were true, then it should be counted as "3rd", NOT "3", so the
numerology is also false there.

Listen I could go on for hours on all sorts of numrological
coincidences, like the fact that Pope John XXIII who guided the vatican
through Vatican II was known as The Navigator before Vatican II, that
the head of the Priory of Sion in Switzerland, credited by many to be
the spiritual head of freemasonry, who was elected at the same time as
that Pope, also went by the name of John The Navigator, and was the 23rd
head of Sion to assum the name John. Blah Blah Blah.
