===========================================
Philip,

In the State of New Jersey, it is against the law to observe subatomic particles. It is considered a felony of committing indecent act punishable by imprisonment and fine.

OK, but you should be embarrassed. Your entire spiel was a ripoff. That may not be as bad as having us think they were your ideas. Now we know where to categorize you.

"Twelve is a mystical number in the bible and many other places."

Why 12?

reply to werranth413's post:

easier for them to do fractions with
cause they did not have decimal numbers yet

lots of numerology in the bible
1 3 7 10 12 40 144000 and others?
what do any of them really mean other than a quantity ??

3 is more balanced than 2

there are 7 bright 'planets' for the naked eye (and the 7 days times 4 was the approximate length of the cycle of lunar phases)

10 fingers and toes (we used to have 11 to 16)

12 moons in an approximate year

I've read that 40 was the largest number that illiterate people were able to conceive of without much concentration

12 times 12 times 100 was an unimaginably large and adequate amount of people

pretty sad you guys -- you have an interesting thread like the big bang, a well defined scientific enterprise, noble in it's aims and achievements, and you nauseatingly pollute it with superstition and numerology. tell me, when are you going to reduce it to astrology?

<<tell me, when are you going to reduce it to astrology?>>

it smells fishy to me, and seems insufficiently chaste. but i'm weighing the possibilities, and agree a new age may be dawning.
