This really isn't anything as far as conspiracy is concerned...well maybe it is...guess it depends. But years ago my father told me about a song that he used to listen to that talked about using a deck of cards as more than just a gambling tool. You can use a deck as a BIBLE and an ALMANAC! Here is the breakdown...I think its pretty amazing actually...

The Holy Bible (as viewed with a deck of cards)


2 - The Old & New Testament
3 - The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
4 - Books Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John of the Bible
5 - The 5 Virgins, there were 10 but 5 were cast out
6 - It took god 6 days to create earth
7 - On the 7th day God rested
8 - The number God spared to reseed earth after the flood
(Noah & his Wife, their 3 sons & their 3 wives = 8)
9 - Jesus healed 10 men with lepers but only 1 thanked him, 9 never did
10 - The 10 Commandments of God
JACK - Represents the devil
QUEEN - Represents the Blessed Virgin Mary
KING - Represents the son Jesus Christ
ACE - Represents the one, GOD almighty

The Almanac (as viewed with a deck of cards)

1 - If you count the number of spots on a deck of cards (hearts, dimonds, etc...) you will find there are 365..the number of days in a year

2 - If you count the number of suits (hearts, clubs, etc...) in a deck of cards, there are 4...the number of seasons in a year

3 - If you count the number of tricks in a deck of cards, there are 13...the number of weeks in a quarter year

4 - If you count the number of cards in a normal deck, there are 52...number of weeks in a year

Pretty amazing sh$t isn't it!

Hope you guys enjoyed

That's interesting but I find it to be a stretch, prolly to discredit claims that the modern playing card deck came from ancient pagan religions..

I have never heard of this. However, now that you mention it, I suppose one can look at it this way.

#9 seems like a bit of a stretch.

(second line!)

its can use ANYTHING to stretch and fit where you want it...overall though if at the least...someone back in the day..had a good imagination to come up with this and figure it out....

I agree, you can make many things fit many things. During passover our family does "who knows one".

It's pretty much like the 12 days of christmas, but with 13 verses. You start at 1, and each round you go up 1 number. Here's the final verse:
13 who knows 13
13 I know 13
13 are the attributes of God
12 are the Tribes of Israel
11 are the stars in Joseph's dream
10 are the commandments
9 are the months before birth,
8 are the days to the brit milah
7 are the days in a week till Shabbat
6 are the orders of the mishnah
5 are the books of the torah,
4 are our matriarchs,
3 are our forefathers
2 are the tablets of the commandments
1 is Our God who is in the heavens and on earth.

As you can tell, some how each number matches up with something in the religion (a la the playing cards).

Who knows one?

It's a fun do each verse in one breath :-)

I won't go into the obvious mathematics involved here, but the OP is still a very interesting personal interpretation.
