  1. To be fair, it is not that farfetched to say that the number twelve had astrological or divine significance, like the number seven, and so some people would say that’s why the Bible divides the Tribes of Israel into twelve and that this was a cultural universal among Semitic peoples (or in the Ancient Near East in general) that was eventually transmitted to the Greeks who used it for the Zodiac.

    • While what you stated is initially plausible in comparison to the nonsense promoted by Zeitgeist, even that proves to be rather anachronistic. The use of a 12 sign zodiac developed around 500 BC and thus the Old Testament likely predates it. Certainly it was not yet established long enough to exert that sort of influence.

  2. I just wanted to leave a quick message to say I’ve enjoyed your posts. I’ve been a follower for sometime, especially when you did the You Tube platform. I am an Eastern Orthodox and found you information fascinating, especially the KJV data. My family is originally Anglican as they were immigrants from Sheffield, but they somehow gravitated to Fundie Baptist. The result is I went to a Fundie Christian High School, so I am fully aware of the cult-like fanaticism the KJV Onlyists indulge in, my brother is actually one. They usually don’t have a response when you tell them the Translators had to sign on to the 39 Articles, which included Infant/child Baptism, and other things. Thanks Albert, I look forward to more.
