    As we can all tell you about this little thing called scientific fact, and you'd still turn a blind eye to that, for it does not fit in with your ideals.
    If you are against this numbers rubbish that the OP has come up with then I agree with you. Some people just need to realise that the combinations possible are huuuuge.

    As for scientific fact: look up the the statements on embryology in the Qur'an (if you haven't already done so). Quite an interesting topic in terms of how accurate it is in explaining the stages of embryology.

    What you seem to be talking about isn't necessarily anything to do with a higher power, it's just basic numerology. People have always tried to form connections through numbers, to create some sort of meaning.

    And ok, great, so there was one verse that mentioned something about something else. But there are 7959 verses in the bible; I'm fairly sure that if you scoured through them looking for any one thing, you'd find it - it's not magic, it's coincidence.
    Thats the thing we call it coincidence, but say we have 40 of these coincidences all fitting into one another (like the pieces of a puzzle fit into one another, if you put all the information I knew into a mind map you will understand and they are intriguing to say the least). Is it still a coincidence? Or is it something else?

    It depends on the scale and source of the information. If you've got five friends on facebook, the chances of you having a mutual friend with somebody that you hadn't realised is fairly slim. If you have five hundred friends, you may well find quite a few people that you know.

    Similarly, if you look for coincidences in two books that are each ten pages long, chances are you won't find anything. If you look for coincidences in books five hundred pages long, you stand a better chance of finding some. And if the books are written at a similar time, by similar types of scholars, with similar cultural surroundings, there is a chance they'll be similar.

    I was more referring to the post claiming there is no way that beautiful women evolved from single cell organisms, but yeah, this numbers stuff is full of crap. This universe is so immense, you can find patterns in anything.

    Thats true, but we are not only talking about books here are we? We are talking about scriptures, artworks, the history of a nation state, science ( the lunar eclipse), even the number of islands in a particular country "coincides with" a specific verse in a New Testament which coincides with what this Rabbi said. Intriguing stuff. These are separate areas, if it was all coincidences, then they should not "fit into" one another as if they were meant to be put together as a puzzle. You know what I mean? :-)

    Is this all really randomness? Somehow I dont think so.

    Hey guys just wanted to know your reaction to these interesting coincidences I found between the different religions and "other things"

    Judaism = 613 mitzvots is the same numbers in John 3:16 in reverse!!

    Quran "mysterious verse" of the Chapter Bee 16:8;
    16:8 And (He has created) horses, mules, and donkeys, for you to ride and use for show; and He has created (other) things of which ye have no knowledge.

    The above is interpreted to mean that God has created other beings, but maybe interpreted to mean that God has literally "designed" all of creation

    New Testament +

    http://www.trosch.org/the/love.html

    God is Love mentioned only twice in the whole bible

    1 John 4 : 8
    1 John 4 : 16

    Jesus numerical value = 888 =

    8 + 8 + 8 = 24; 8 + 16 + 24

    Speaking of Love did you know that Aprhodite - the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty was born in Cyprus? and Cyprus became an independent nation on August 16 1960 + 8:16 again!!

    Intruigingly, the most famous sculpture of all time, Michaelangelo's David (which means BELOVED), was given the go ahead to be created on August 16!!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_(Michelangelo)

    Intruigingly on August 16 there are 137 days left in the year which is interesting because

    c. 1037 David's birthdate (one interpretation)

    http://monarchs.suite101.com/article...avid_of_israel

    Also, Michaelangelos David measures 5.17 meters which is intriguing because

    May 17 + 137th day of the year!! 5th month 17th day (check out the above)

    Interestingly, Kalki the final Hindu avatar of Vishnu (the messiah of the hindus) is symbolized by the horse

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar#Avatars_of_Vishnu

    A white horse is mentioned in Revelations

    You know how Jesus calls himself the first and the last? Well check this out...

    Vishnu avatars - Fish and Horse

    1st Avatar - Matsya, the fish-avatar who saved Manu - the progeniter of mankind from the great deluge and rescued the Vedic scriptures by killing a demon
    10. Kalki ("Eternity", or "time", or "The Destroyer of foulness"), who is expected to appear at the end of Kali Yuga.


    Which is intriguing because in Judaism

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nun_(Bible)

    Thus the Midrash tells: "[T]he son of him whose name was as the name of a fish would lead them [the Israelites] into the land." (Genesis Rabba 97:3.)

    Also, check this out. Rabbi says Jesus is the Messiah
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yitzchak_Kaduri

    Rabbi Kaduri met the Messiah on 4th November

    Interestingly

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_4


    Bahá'í Faith – Feast of Qudrat (Power), first day of the 13th month of the Bahá'í calendar
    Egypt- Day of Love
    Italy – Victory Day, National Unity Day
    Russia – Day of People's Unity (or National Unity Day)

    Power + Love + Victory + Unity

    Amor Vincit Omnia

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amor_Vi...ia_(Caravaggio)

    Also, the Rabbi mentions "signs of the angel" in his discussions with his family

    http://www.israeltoday.co.il/default...=item&idx=1347

    Are these just coincidences or is it possible that.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQy4A...om=PL&index=34

    I have around 3 dozen other coincidences by the way which are ALL connected to one another. If you have around 40 coincidences all coinciding with one another, is it still coincidence?

    Einstein: coincidences are God's way of remainig anonymous. Said by the genius himself not me....

    Peace and Love :-)

    You could detect a million different patterns in something like that if you're looking for them especially when it involves numbers and something as interminable as the bible.

    Btw if you've thought of those yourself, I don't think that's a particularly intelligent use of your time.

    I was starting to get depressed with some of the rather disrespectul comments in here. Sometimes atheists seem as fundamentalist as the religious people are.

    Anyway, remember when I told you that God is Love is mentioned only twice (believe it or not) in the whole Bible?

    1 John 4:8
    1 John 4:16

    Quranic verse the Bee 16:8 - I have created other things which you dont understand.

    Well I was watching a Stephen Hawking documentary awhile ago And found this rather interesting and very significant scientific event ( please read in relation to the rest of the things I have just mentioned)

    http://www.yourdiscovery.com/video/s...he-wow-signal/

    Only once it has happened in history. And it had to fall on that particular date.

    Still a coincidence?
