Quote# 12007

The creation does not lie and numbers do not lie.JESUS,the Creator,left His numerical stamp over everything.
I could list a long list of examples but a few are:
7 days in a week Why not 6-8 or 9?

28 days in a creation month[7x4] 29th day new month[full moon to full moon] Why not 25 or 35 days in a month?

The are 12 different notes in a chromatic scale of music. [12 tribes-12 disciples-12 months in a year] Why not 11 or 13?

The NUMBERS do not lie

Seven days in a week? Might that have a little to do with the story of the creation, and not the actual creation itself?

I suppose he's talking about lunar months, but it still makes very little sense. That's all dependent on orbital periods.

As for 12 different notes in a chromatic scale, someone should really introduce this guy to microtonal music. For that matter, music with a continuous scale instead of one with discrete steps.

Go go gadget numerology!

Oh shit. Where to start with your stupdity - for starters a lunar month is 29½ days not 28.

Hebrew/arabic culture where your stupid fucking myth originated uses quartertones as steps, not semitones so you should be talking about how wonderful the TV show 24 is.

Doh - the shit that fills your head!
Ray - nup, not even a glimmer!
Me - The word you use instead of my.
Fah - is your distance from comprehension.
Soh - wilfully stupid doves cry!
Lah - What you repeat endlessly when you refuse to learn.
Tee - MT is your idiom, idiot!

<<< 7 days in a week Why not 6-8 or 9? >>>

Because the people who made the calendar believed your silly myth.

<<< 28 days in a creation month[7x4] 29th day new month[full moon to full moon] Why not 25 or 35 days in a month? >>>

Because it's based on the lunar calendar, and the moon takes about 29 days to orbit. No mystery there.

<<< The are 12 different notes in a chromatic scale of music. [12 tribes-12 disciples-12 months in a year] Why not 11 or 13? >>>

There are an infinite number of frequencies we could use. Listen to any junior high band that forgot to tune before their performance if you want proof. It's just convenient to stick to a fixed set so we don't have to retune our instruments constantly.

But all of those months are named after Greek gods. And the days are named after other religions. And the planets are named after Roman gods?

So does that prove the existance of those gods?

Very good point!

Uranus was God of the Heavens - therefore any talk or concept of Heaven is derived from Uranus!!!

Does the word \"apophenia\" mean anything to you, psalm?

The number of days in a week or completely determined by mankind you nitwit. There could be 10 if we wanted, but we say there's 7. Guess what else? There's 23 hours, 56 minutes, 4 seconds in a day. Why wouldn't God make it an even twenty four? Why did He make a year 365.25 days long instead of an even 365?

All of those numbers, except the lunar month, are arbitrary and in no way laid down by a divine spirit. You can find the \"numerical proof\" for anything if you stretch your imagination to incredible lengths.

Argh! The irrelevance! The thread was about wether a godfearing child may question his teacher in physics about the big bang theory. Out of nothing came this scientifically educated guy and threw in numerology. I almost can hear him whisper \"Why do we have ten fingers? TEN! It fits so remarkably well with our dezimal system!\"
Those numeric guys should induce fear into every human heart. Have a look at this wacky guy.

From the most holy Principia Discordia:

The Law of Fives states simply that: ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPROPRIATE TO 5.

The Law of Fives is never wrong.

In the Erisian Archives is an old memo from Omar to Mal-2: \"I find the Law of Fives to be more and more manifest the harder I look.\"

Didn't the original caldendar only have 10 months? This is why it's called dec-ember.

\"Didn't the original caldendar only have 10 months? This is why it's called dec-ember.\"

No, it just was considered the tenth month because the Roman new year began with march. January and february were considered part of the according to our calendar preceding year.

I have a formula of my own:

0 * x = 0

therefore:
psalm150 * 'x' posts = zero intelligence

There where less months. Then Julius and Augustus both decided they wanted to be months to.
July and August.

There 12 notes in a chromatic scale because there were 12 tribes and 12 disciples? You're an idiot.

There are 8 notes in a well-tempered major scale because my dick is 8 inches long.

There are 3 notes in a triad because my front door is 3 feet wide.

The concert pitch of A=440 was established because I once had a car with a piston diplacement of 440 cubic inches.

Numbers don't lie, people lie with numbers.

BTW, the 7 day week has nothing to do with the Genesis stories, it's because your I.Q. is 7.

Nope, they re-named existing months.

The Romans, while using the same month system as we do did not use weeks. They instead measured from the beginning of the month and the halfway point of the month. This halfway point was called the ides (singular, despite the \"S\").

Thus the famous phrase from Shakespeare's play \"Beware the ides of March.\" Caesar was stabbed to death on March 15th, the middle day of March according to the Roman calendar.

I'll bet you dollars to donuts that a 7 day sub-lunar calendar division is extremely rare under traditional calendars from any non-abrahamic influenced area.

7 notes in the major scale. Temperament (and you meant equal temperament, more than likely--we really don't use well temperament anymore) has little to do with it, and there are such things as five- and seven-tone equal temperament. Octatonic scales are used occasionally in Western music, but a seven-note scale is by far the most prevalent.

That said, his idea that the number of half-steps in a typical major or minor scale in Western music comes from the number of disciples, tribes, or months in a year is utterly ridiculous.

If you say crap like that you can get numbers to say just about anything.

Justin M -- \"7 notes in the major scale.\" Seven different, OK. Eight if you put the octave on top.

Equal tempermant, well-tempered, I hear them both in my work. You're right that equal tempered is more specifically descriptive.


\"there are such things as five- and seven-tone equal temperament.\"

Of course there are, but my dick isn't 5 inches long.


Temperaments and number of steps, 1/2 steps. 1/4 steps, whatever steps, are all human impositions.

The current value of the synodic month (rounded to five decimal places) is 29.53059 days.
365.2422 days in a year.
approximately 22÷7 radii in a circumference of a circle. The numbers do not lie.

3) Four Seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter.
4) Four kingdoms; Mineral, vegetable, animal, spiritual.
5) Four winds; from the four directions of this earth as mentioned in the word of God.
6) Four divisions of our day; morning, noon, evening, and night.
7) Four phases of the moon; 1st quarter, new moon, last quarter, and full moon.

Out of the list above, only animal is not created yet. Also, 7 is the nuber of God.

The four elements!?
The four kingdoms!?
