Holy Mathematics

richardshagrin

Most math is secular, anyone can do it anywhere they want. You can do it in public or private, in your home or in someone else's, outdoors or in a building. A lot of math gets done in schools. However there is a difference between addition, subtraction and division and multiplication. Multiplication is holy. God told the Israelites to go forth and Multiply.

The truth is He said, "Go out there and fuck like crazy." But the Pope had it cleaned up a lot when it got translated from Hebrew into Latin.

Paraphrase, extrapolate, reinterpret, rinse and repeat. There is no telling what marvellous places you may end up.

Surely it was Noah (probably on behalf of Yahweh) who ordered the animals to go forth and Multiply. Later, when he went to review progress he was disappointed in the vipers who pointed out that they couldn't Multiply because they were Adders

But six months later, when Noah swung by for a visit he found the two snakes playing with several little nippers on some wooden furniture that had been set up for them.

"This is wonderful," cried Noah. How did you do it?"

It was easy, in the end" one of the parent snakes replied. "We used ..."

(wait for it)

"Log tables!"

Some of the one celled animals like Amoeba, multiply by dividing. The rest of us may also start multiplying by dividing, the sperm and egg get together and start as a single cell. Chromosomes do something to duplicate the originals and grow cells around the results.

But multiplication is just serial addition.
