Michelle (michellesayaha) | 8 comments "In the scriptures the numbers three, seven and twelve have special meaning. The Trinity, seven days of creation and the twelve tribes of Israel are just a few examples... It is the same in music! The three notes of the Triad are the basis of harmony. The Seven notes of the natural scale and the seventh tone of the harmonic series are essential. Finally the twelve notes of the twelve harmonic series appear on the piano as the twelve members of the chromatic scale. The numeric patterns three, seven and twelve indicate the SAME AUTHOR in both nature and music!" Cool fact from from The Divine Nature of Music Book presents powerful evidence that music testifies of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! And that God created music to remind of us of our relationship to Him. Great read.

Tamara Georges  (tamarasinnamon) Here's a cool fact some people may not realize.
If you're trying to warm someone don't give them alcohol. We have heard a lot that alcohol will help warm your body, but it actually brings the core temperature of your body down. It makes you feel warm which is where people got that initial belief, but recent studies have disproved it. A better solution would be to give someone warm/hot tea.

That is a very important fact to know... Ginger tea with lemon and honey is the best! And it is practically medicine due to all of its amazing benefits!

Matt Hart | 148 comments There are tiny sandals carved in rocks all across and around the Arabian peninsula, from the Mediteranean to the Gulf. It is likely they were carved by the Israelites during their years in the wilderness, as a reminder of the promise in Duet 11:24.

message 40: by Aerykah (new)

Aerykah | 3571 comments What U.S. city has been hit the most by tornadoes?

The answer appears to be Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City is almost in a class by itself when it comes to tornado activity. According to the local National Weather Service office, the capital of Oklahoma has been hit more than 140 times since records began in the early 1890s. There seems to be no explanation other than Oklahoma City is smack in the middle of Tornado Alley, and conditions in and around the town are perfect for tornado formation during the spring months.

And there's my random fact for the day! ;P

Aerykah | 3571 comments So... another random fact:

Oklahoma got it's name from the Choctaw Indian words "okla humma" meaning "red people."
