Even the Numbers Bear Witness. . - Jack Kinsella
We observed in a recent Omega Letter that the Bible speaks to us in the two languages of sentience.  The first is the most commonly understood language of the spoken word.
The spoken word is broken down into regional languages; only a trained linguist could find similarities between English and, say Arabic.
The second is the universal language of mathematics.  It is the universal language since it is the language in which all laws of the physical universe were written.  Assuming, for a second, that there could be another inhabited planet out there somewhere, in some other galaxy, the same laws of mathematics would apply there as they do here.
The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second no matter where in the universe you live or how you measure distance.  Mathematics is a pure language in that it is a language in which it is impossible to tell a lie.
It is possible to use a lot of numbers to confuse the conversation - Bernie Madoff made a career out of it, but in the end, the numbers told the truth.  Madoff was convicted by the numbers.  Numbers cannot lie.
For that reason, much of the Bible is written out in numbers.  The number one signifies primacy and independent existence.  In most languages, it is signified by a single stroke.  The number one stands alone.
