Quote of the day:

Fascinating that an atheist would have such a strong connection to the number 19:

–19 is the number of years in each cycle of the Hebrew calendar.

–19 is the number of angels guarding Hell.

–The Bahá’í calendar is structured so that a year contains 19 months of 19 days each, as well as a 19-year cycle and a 361-year (19×19) supercycle.

–19 is considered significant in astrology because it is the sum of the number of the constellations of the zodiac (12) and the number of the classically-known "planets" (7, including the sun and moon).

–The first verse in the Quran, `In the name of God, most gracious, most merciful’ consists of 19 letters and every word of this verse is repeated as a multiple of nineteen. The Quran consist of 114 chapter’s (19×6). The first chapter revealed, sura 96 consists of 19 verses. The last Quranic revelation, sura 110 consists of exactly 19 words.
