Personally speaking I have never had a problem with Religion and luckily I now have a career that allows me to look and study everything from Nanse and the birds, Nabatean Agriculture, Henry Cornelius Agrippa right up to present day beliefs like Catholicism, Islam,Hindu Buddism etc. What’s also beneficial about my work I get to work with some of the best minds in Universe on the above subject matter. I do often wonder if some of my colleagues originally wrote some of this stuff, their knowledge is so great. It’s rather humbling in a way, but anyway ….
Recently however somebody asked me to explain my current understanding of Religion. Knowing that Hedjer needed a good laugh,I gave them a torch and I threw out a bone, a very old bone that would predate every religious belief since sumer and told them to equate the communality of numbers in every religious belief into the bone - ie The spiritual significance of numbers(which is universal, same in every religion) using the notches on the bone:
The bone was the Ishango bone - date apronx 9000BC - this is what they got

I want to agree with you...heck I'd even like to understand you.
So Pardon my ignorance here, but where does the baboon fit in?
And the long trail of numbers following the baboon comment.

What does it all mean?

The Ishango bone is a bone tool, dated to the Upper Paleolithic era. It is a dark brown length of bone, the fibula of a baboon,[2] with a sharp piece of quartz affixed to one end, perhaps for engraving. It was first thought to be a tally stick, as it has a series of what has been interpreted as tally marks carved in three columns running the length of the tool. It has also been suggested that the scratches might have been to create a better grip on the handle or for some other non-mathematical reason.[3] Wikipedia

So a bone with lots of marks on it?
With no symbols, with no real evidence of its age.

Maybe its the ultimate religious icon of humanity, or a bone from a baboon somebody kept a score of the hot meals he had on

So some folks read a lot into the mere markings on the bone as if to make it of some importance to the existence of humankind? Seems a bit of a stretch.

God hates counting. Its people who are obsessed with price tagging reality.


The connections and patterns of numerals, when we search them out and understand them, reveal the handiwork of Satan.
