Well, I really do not know what this all means.
I am aware, that if you are looking for something (like number 13) - you will find it!
I got this "Number 13 & the Pope" story in my email-box, from a friend.
Anyway, I am not even going to mention the number 13 and the Illuminati & the Masons - who have a connection with this "unlucky" number.
And now a little History Class: Where are the origins of the Unlucky Number 13:
"On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried
out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren — in
chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and
the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered excruciating tortures intended
to force 'confessions,' and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at the stake."
The Turks so dislike the number that the word is almost expunged from their vocabulary. The Italians never use it in making up the numbers of their
lotteries. In Paris no house bears the number, and persons, called Quartorziennes (q.v.), are reserved to make a fourteenth at dinner parties.
Sitting down thirteen at dinner, in old Norse mythology, was deemed unlucky, because at a banquet in the Valhalla, Loki once intruded, making
thirteen guests, and Baldur was slain.
And do you know what Paraskevidekatriaphobia is?
