National Geographic was on with the story of Exodus...trying to find scientific explanations for the plagues...the whole point of the story is obedience to God...and I wonder if by finding "logical" explanations...volcano lava rock as the burning bush!...that obedience is undermined...or at least the import of the story...now there is one on about the first Americans...I think I've seen this one...now they're doing bit on the fabric found in a burial site...
Ah, but the Pyramid of Kukulcan...I thought about that today and wondered if it had seven levels...lemgolook!..brb...
It's called El Castillo...the castle...and has nine levels...I was hoping for seven...but it also has 365 steps...and with it's orientations another example, like the Egyptian pyramids, of a monument that is like a giant clock or sun dial.
Here's an odd thing, which I've never really seen layed out anywhere...all the beginning numbers, except a couple...divide into 360 evenly...the Mayans had different years...one of 360 days...and the five left over were a kinda special set...
a little math!
one goes into 360, 360 times
2 goes into 360, 180 times
3 goes into 360, 120 times
4 goes into 360, 90 times
5 goes into 360, 72 times
6 goes into 360, 60 times
7 goes into 360, 51 rounded off...but into 365, 52 rounded off
8 goes into 360, 45 times
9 goes into 36o, 40 times
10 goes into 360, 36 times
11 goes into 360, 32.7272
12 goes into 360 30 times
13 goes into 360 27.8 rounded off
Seven is the number of days in a week, and there are 52 weeks...
And let me go get the length of a Lunar month...the sidereal...
(27 days, 7 hours, 43 minutes, 11.6 seconds).
Snowflakes (and the Star of David) branch at sixty degrees
And of course there are 12 months of approximately 30 days...
I think about this sometimes and try to figure it out!!
Job 28:20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
24 For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
25 To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
26 When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
27 Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Dont think that fits in with the other thoughts!...but I was mulling over that "fear of God is the beginning of Wisdom" bit...it was painted on the gym wall one place I refereed basketball.
I'm a pudding stone of things!!
