    Eagle, I was trying to point out stuff to support your statements, not argue against you.

    Also, you attributed a statement or two to me that was actually made by Ken. No offense taken, though....

Not to speak of the other numbers they have significances but some not in themselves Such as Wisdom hewning her Seven Pillars... But I'm sure their just pretty sayings with no relevance whatsover.

    Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand [and] Six hundred furlongs.

    There must be some importance to numbers or else why would God put them in?

    The woman with the five husbands struck me once I still don't understand the significance outside the obvious story.

    She said she had no husband, Jesus said she anwered Correctly saying you have had Five husbands the one you have now is not your husband. Then theres the verse in Revelation that nags me in the connection somehow that speak of "Five have fallen one IS the other has not yet come". As weird as these two seem as being connected somehow I can't fight the feeling that they are. But thats another itch to add to the many I have.

    Well then how to you explain every other number between 1-9 being used over and over. I just picked the number 8 and did a search like you did with 6.
    The fact is that the smaller numbers 1-9 are used the most. NO Secret code or special meaning.
    I stopped this list at Judges. You had 20 listings of the number 6, I have 22. The odds say dictated it would occur.

    they cut down another eighteen thousand IsraelitesHe had forty sons and thirty grandsons, who rode on seventy donkeys. He led Israel eight years.
    subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years
    For eighteen years they oppressed all the Israelites
    In all you must give the Levites forty-eight towns
    subject to Eglon king of Moab for eighteen years
    While you plant during the eighth year, you will eat from the old crop
    Then on the eighth day he must bring two doves
    'On the sixth day prepare eight bulls
    to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years
    On the eighth day Gamaliel son of Pedahzur, the leader of the people of Manasseh
    On the eighth day he must bring them for his cleansing to the priest
    and on the eighth day hold a sacred assembly and present an offering
    On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron
    Milcah bore these eight sons to Abraham's
    Isaac lived a hundred and eighty years
    give them to me on the eighth day.
    All the curtains are to be the same size-twenty-eight cubits
    So there were eight frames and

    Isaac was eight days
    Abram was eighty-six years old
    every male among you who is eight days old

    What you are practicing is called the false science of Numerology.

    If you want to see it in action watch this.
    The verse in the OT that introduces "pi" has more to it than meets the eye. Many people think that the Bible got the interger of pi wrong. But it was secretly hidden right in that very verse.The verse is 1 Kings 7:23 in which a circular "molten sea" with a diameter of 10 cubits and a circumference of 30.

    Let's have fun and see how we can create anything we want after a fact has been established.

    1 Kings 7:23
    The initial 1 (from 1 Kings), subtracted from the terminal 23, gives the ratio 7:22 and 22 divided by 7 is 3.14+, a fair approximation of pi. For a still better value, twice 7 is 14, half of 2 is 1, and twice 3 is 6. Ths gives 1416, the first four decimals of an excellent approximation of pi.

    Star, you will really be impress with the number 32.

    water freezes at 32 degrees
    There are 32 crystal classes.
    Man has 32 teeth
    There are 32 electrons in the filled 4th energy level of atoms
    There are 32 fundamental, long-lived particles.
    Eddington's find-sturcture constant, 137, is the 32nd odd prime.
    32 is 2 raised to the power obtaied by adding 3 and 2.
    Franklin Dl. Roosevelt ws the 32nd president, elected in the the year '32
    Adding 3 and 2 gives you the 2rd number of the Fibonacci sequence.
    Dividing any Fibonacci sequence by the next higher number equals 1.618 which when added together 1+6+1+8=16 and then doubled (one for each of the 2 numbers(16x2)) equals 32.

    After all is said and done with the number games. It hasn't comforted me nor will it comfort a person going through life's problems. The meaning of the words from the Bible will.

    We need to lean on God's words, not a number sequence. God Bless you on your search for truth, it need not be proven by calculations but rather the truth of his words and love.
