This is a new 'religion' which contemplates the
majesty of the number 4. One can go 4 weeks
without food, 4 days without water, and 4
minutes without air. Our language is entirely
divisible by the number 4. Our beloved Earth is 4
billion years old.

4-based punishments for the 4 degrees of
each
of 4 basic laws (no lying, stealing, raping, or
killing) would be 4x as effective as existing
penalties. Such punishments would include
things like 4 minutes of oxygen deprivation, or 4
hours in a 4° freezer. 4 hours in front of a mirror
to reflect on what you've done. 4 days of water
deprivation. Things like that.

To ensure the stability of marriage, we mandate
a 4 year engagement followed by a 4-hour
wedding and a 4 day honeymoon.

The infamous Timecubehttp://www.timecube.com/ You have not the mentality to comprehend the simple math of Cubic antipode creation, for at about age 6, your parents gave your 2 opposite antipode brains to Big Brother academic hirelings, to clone thought to serve evil singularity brotherhood - destroying Cubic families, villages and tribes.

The most sacred part of a man's body is the
fourskin. Cutting it off is punishable by 4 whacks
from each of four 4 year olds with a wiffle ball bat.
You can
guess where.

Out of respect for the lnine, grnine and
unfivegettable Victor Borge, I would like to stnine
that this idea is three ridiculous for words, and
completely unelevenable.

Now e, tau or perhaps pi if tau isn't agreed to be demonstratably superior in every way, I could see that. But then again, presuming the holey-ness of irrational numbers might be called circular reasoning by atauists / a-pi-ists.

Rayford, our entire language has a root of 4. Take
any word, any word
at all, and it breaks down to the number 4. Here's
what I mean:

Take, for instance, your name, 'rayfordsteele'. Your
name consists of
thirteen letters. 'Thirteen' consists of eight letters.
'Eight' consists of
five letters. 'Five' consists of four letters. 'Four'
consists of 4, and you
can't get smaller than that. That same breakdown
applied to any word
in our language yields the same final result: 4.

4 is not magical in any way. Simple observation
simply shows that it
is the best , simply unfalsifiable answer to so many
questions one
may have in life. What is the best amount of water
to drink per day? 4
quarts. What is the best amount of meals per day?
4 meals. I could go
on, and on, and on. Tau and Pi are not the answer
to these questions, my
friend. The answer is 4.

Ask not the silly question of 'why?'. Ask, instead,
'what four?'

An unfourtunate opportunity four far three many unfunny
bits of wordplay. One
can scarcely start two talk without them pouring out like
lies from a politician.

No but really weddings lasting only four hours? If it's a wedding ceremony lasting four hours, then that's one thing - maybe there is something in this, likes, a good long meditative ceremony, chanting, dervishing and ululation perhaps, whatever works - but if you're actually expecting guests to pitch up in their full Bonnie Prince Charlie and / or summer dress, having already schlepped off to John Lewis for the vouchers, all for less than four hours of getting steamboats then I don't think I can subscribe to your newsletter.

Four--not a comfortable number at all. It is "square", of
course and it has the disadvantage of three possible
outcoems, "For", "A tie" and "Against" when four people
are trying to make a decision as a group. 4 is an awkward
number. In the vision of Ezekiel, in the bible, the vehicle
he describes has four wings, four wheels, four faces (a
lion, an eagle, a man and an ox). the most of 4 things
described in the whole book! also, everyone knows any
group of four will quickly divide into two teams, against
each other...the number of any groups should be
odd...This way, one group awlays outnumbers the other
and thus questions of disagreements are quickly settled.
I think, if there was to be a religion based on a number it
would have to be the number 11. That makes the most
sense - Ah, 11...how refreshing. And, it is mild.

When a group cannot reach a consensus, everyone knows it is best to settle it by a game of rock, paper, scissors, and the victory goes to whoever gets the best 3 out of 4. So you see, your argument against the infallible Four eats itself.

yeah but no, rock paper scissors is not congruent with the basic principle of the Church of 4, as the competing elements number three. Applying a majoritarian decision-making structure to a body with four members will create - as pointed out above - either deadlock, consensus or two groups (neither of which will number four), thus the Church of 4 contains within its very structure the seeds of its own destruction, an inherent heresy.

A democracy is powerful not because all members act as one, but because of the individuality of each member thinking freely and reaching a logical conclusion that happens to be shared by other individuals. A consensus does not make 4 into one. The simplest of mathematics will tell you that 1 is always divisible into 4 quarters, each of which is divisible into 4 smaller members and so on ad infinitum.

The Chinese, brilliant mathematicians that they are, evem discovered that the perfect family size is 4 (two parents +two children).
