13's on the u.s. dollar...

some of you may have already been aware of the reoccurrence of the number 13 on the u.s. dollar, some of you may not. on the dollar there are 13 arrows in the eagles talon, 13 leaves and 13 olives on the olive branch, 13 stars above the eagles head and 13 levels on the pyramid. i've heard that these represent 13 time periods of the united states... has anyone else heard other possible meanings of the number 13? what about anything else regarding the dollar or other u.s. currency?

According to a rather famous Christain doomsday prophet it would
be further proof of evil the leaders of this world really are (the United Nations) Yeah, my parents made me read some stuff he wrote before 9/11. All of this bullshit about how 11 and 13 are evil numbers. That must be your answer.

this is what i just found on a website:

Quote:
Alexander wanted to be a God and accordingly made a 13th statue on the place of his capital. He died and people considered that his will to be a 13th God (12 gods, one for each month were known) was the reason of his death. After that this number was considered as unlucky.

According to historians, there were 13 people at Christ's Last Supper and Christ was crucified on Friday 13th. So, Friday 13th is considered as Unlucky.

I read somewhere once that (biblically speaking) the number 13 represented rebellion.

this is really the only thing i've found. that other website didn't mention which alexander they were talking about, i'm assuming it's alexander the great.

Quote:
In 332 BC, in Egypt, the famous oracle of Siwa allegedly confirmed that Alexander had divine origins and that the god Zeus (Ammon) was his true father.
the roman empire began in about 625 bc...
