The periodic table of the elements says that there are 118 elements, and they use those to make medicine. Why should I believe the your 4 over 118 useful ones?

okaaaay...How has animal not been created yet?
There are most certainly more than four elements, silly, we're up to what, 118 of them or so?
Why does the fact that you only include seven items in your list make it special?
For that matter, why is seven special?
Since when are there only four phases of the moon?
Just because you divide your day into four parts, why do you think the rest of us do?
What is the basis for your claim of a 'spiritual' kingdom?
Since when are North, South, East, and West regions, instead of merely directions?
Shouldn't your list then combine numbers one and five, reducing the list to six points, thus making it un-special?
Why am I bothering to type these rhetorical questions that you will never answer?
EDIT: looks like someone beat me to the mention of element 118. Cookie to whoever knows the name of said element.

Is the spritual Kingdom the realm of fungi, and prokaryotes etc?

He forgot the Four forms of insane: totally, downright, batshit, and f*cking.
5/31/2006 7:21:10 AM
He sounds like he's just about ready to take up traditional chinese metaphysics. He just needs to realize that five is bigger (and therefore better) than four...

I'm not surprised, 'cause I was taught in elementary school the same thing. Mind you, that was 15 years ago.
That and mirror changing left and right (instead of front and back) are the most common mistakes in any elementary schoolbook. Makes you wonder...

Four seasons? Obviously this person never visited Chicago.
5/31/2006 11:05:10 AM
Fuck, in Minnesota there's only two seasons; winter and road construction.
I also second what moonbiter and Napoleon the Clown said.

If you divide something into quarters, there will always be four parts to it. This does not make the division meaningful.
5/31/2006 12:23:39 PM
\"Fuck, in Minnesota there's only two seasons; winter and road construction.\"
That is, guaranteed, the absolute funniest thing I will read this week.

Ununoctium is element 118, its highly unstable though and can only be made in particle accelerators

Now, even if you use ancient greek concepts of the elements, he forgot all important aether, the \"fifth element\"
Everyone has forgotten it now because most physicists know that ligt/dark does not have a physical manifestation
5/31/2006 2:02:53 PM
Day is divided into morning, noon, evening, and night? How the heck does the single MINUTE of noon merit its own whole quadrant? Why doesn't midnight, for instance, get equal billing?
Everyone has done a fine job of listing other reasons why this guy's arbitrary numerological BS is so nonsensical; I just didn't want to be left out, and this point seemed unaddressed so far.
5/31/2006 2:17:00 PM
This would be really deep if he was 6 years old.

\"1) Four regions; North, South, East, West.\"
Southwest, northeast, up, down, etc..
\"2) Four elements; Earth, Air, Fire, Water.\"
Your chemistry book is hundreds of years out of date.
\"3) Four Seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter.\"
Can't argue with that.
\"4) Four kingdoms; Mineral, vegetable, animal, spiritual.\"
Sorry, no. Mineral and spiritual are not kingdoms. Plus, you left out fungi and slime molds.
\"5) Four winds; from the four directions of this earth as mentioned in the word of God.
PPthbst! Please refer to #1. As for \"word of God,\" the words of fictional deities have no authority.
\"6) Four divisions of our day; morning, noon, evening, and night.\"
Midnight? If you're going to count noon you must count midnight. How 'bout afternoon, tea time, brunch?
\"7) Four phases of the moon; 1st quarter, new moon, last quarter, and full moon.\"
Ok, so what?
\"Out of the list above, only animal is not created yet.\"
And, like a good Fundie, you throw in a completely unrelated statement making all the sane people wonder what the heck you're talking about.
\"Also, 7 is the number of God.\"
Riiight. Other than \"I pulled it outta my butt,\" can you cite a source for this assertion?
5/31/2006 3:13:35 PM
Four also applies to the number of thwacks upside the head with a science textbook that you need. I mean, \"mineral kingdom?\" \"Spiritual kingdom?\" If north, south, east, and west are \"regions,\" do you think the Earth is flat? Earth, water, fire, and air are \"the four elements?\" I think I'll have to take that claim with a grain of NaCl.
5/31/2006 3:22:36 PM
Nope, there are four seasons in Minnesota: almost winter, winter, still winter...and road construction. Everyone knows that!
5/31/2006 3:24:59 PM
We have two seasons in northern Michigan- winter and the Fourth of July
5/31/2006 3:39:46 PM
-Man occasionally divides things into groups of four
-I can name seven of those things
I don't know about you guys, but I'm convinced!
5/31/2006 5:19:11 PM
There were also:
Four members of The Who
Four Marx Brothers
The Fantastic Four
Four years between leap years
Four years between Olympic Games
Four Giants in Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
Four different aspects of the main character in Quadrophenia
Four types of Yoshis in Mario World
That brings the total number of fours up to 16, which I don't think is a particularly holy number.

Cows have 4 stomachs and the oldest documented religions in the world say cows are holy!

That's an old joke we've got here in Minnesota. I've also heard variations of it in Michigan.

Yeah, I'm from Michigan, and I've been saying it since I was a little girl. Ooooold joke. We also have the saying \"If you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes.\" Also, every winter, we get to keep track of whether or not Hell has indeed frozen over. Christmas and Paradise, both in the Upper Peninsula, generally freeze sooner than Hell.
