Re: Measure of a man !!!
And if we take the number of seconds in 100 twelve hour days, we get 4,320,000 seconds. Add to that the number of feet in 1,000 furlongs (660,000), you get 4,980,000. If you then add 42 of you diameters of the earth (7,920 * 42), you get to 5,312,640. Add 12 divine measures of 432, the number of square rods in a cubit (160) and the number of sacred hours in a day (24), and you get to 5,318,008.

Turn that upside down on a calculator and yea, I say unto you that you get "boobies" - proof positive of the Lord's most inspired creation !


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re:
A meter is 1 10,000 th of the distance from Pole to Equator.

That would make the distance from the pole to the equator ten kilometers.

Numerology is indeed bollocks.

Even more so when:

(a) The numerologist gets the math regularly and demonstrably wrong; and

(b) Scientists (L'Académie des Sciences - the clue's in the name), got a committee to determine a standard length; scientists on the committee decided to choose a relatively constant distance - one quarter of the earth's circumference - then divide it by 10 million and call it a metre; and then the numerologist claims there is something remarkable and mystical about the fact that a quarter of the world's circumference divides exactly into 10 million metres.

But numerology is bollocks on every level in any event.
