Since some of you believe in esoterism and have better knowledge than me in that field I will just expose the signification of number 333 for occultist I found here so that one can question if Bush has chosen this date by pure coÃ¯ncidence : http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1478.cfm "Whenever an occultist contemplates an action, he will go to great lengths to determine the most propitious or advantageous time. He will consult the astrologer, Tarot cards, and various forms of divination. He literally believes the success or failure of a Plan lies as much in the correct timing as it does in any other factor. This process is called "divination". An occultist becomes fairly predictable once you understand his thinking patterns and belief structure. This is one of our goals today, to understand how an occultist thinks when he is contemplating any particular action. We will then discuss the occult original goals which the Masters of the Illuminati and our forefathers shared for the United States of America. Let us begin with the divination beliefs of occultists. Divination is defined by Webster's New World Dictionary as "the practice of trying to foretell the future or the unknown by occult means." As we said earlier, no occultist will attempt any major action without first determining the most auspicious time in which to carry out this action. This effort to determine the correct time for an action is carried out to precise days and times. A good example is the suicide of Adolf Hitler. Hitler chose the date, April 30, 1945, because it was the first day of the Pagan Spring Holy Days. He chose 3:30p.m. because, according to occult doctrine, this combination of three's presented to him the most favorable time to depart this life and reenter the reincarnation cycle. Note the triple 3's that are present here, April 30 as the first three, 3 o'clock in the afternoon as the second three, and 30 minutes past the hour as the final three. Hitler was engaging in typical occult behavior by arranging the timing of his death in a very precise, numeric manner. Why do occultists do this? All occultists worship nature and parts of nature, rather than the Creator Himself. The Apostle Paul stated this truth in Romans 1:25. Occultists not only worship the created being, they worship the gods of forces, in direct fulfillment of the prophecy in Daniel 11:38. Thus, occultists worship scientific knowledge, especially mathematics. They believe certain numbers possess magical powers; even more power can be released when these sacred numbers are used in certain combinations. One occult writer, Westcott, stated, "Numbers are a key to the ancient views of cosmogony (the universe)...spiritually as well as physically...all systems of religious mysticism are based upon numbers". (p, 15). Further, occultists believe that "in Number lay secreted the key to the universe." (Van Buren, p. 42). Numbers are literally worshipped. Let us begin with a quick study of the six numbers which occultists deem to be sacred, possessing great power individually and even greater power when used in combination. This belief in combining numbers involves two exercises. First, occultists will create new sacred numbers by multiplying or adding basic sacred numbers. Secondly, occultists will simply group sacred numbers together to create a new set of powerful numbers. All this activity fulfills two purposes. First, great power is supposedly released when an occultist utilizes the correct sacred numbers in carrying out his planned action. Secondly, when a new number is created by either multiplication, addition, or simply by grouping sacred numbers, this new number becomes an occult symbol, which informs the initiated occultist as to what is happening, while simultaneously hiding it from the uninitiated. 1. Three (3) is the first sacred number, the first perfect number (Westcott, p. 41). Three represents the Pagan Trinity." (Westcott, p. 37). It is represented geometrically in the triangle, and spiritually as the Third Eye Of Hinduism. Occultists will multiply and add three to other sacred numbers to create new numbers. However, they also group threes in two's and threes, because they believe in the principle of "intensification", i.e., that greater power is achieved when a sacred number is grouped. In the case of three, greater intensification is achieved when it is shown as 33, or 333. When Hitler committed suicide, he arranged the timing details so as to create a triple three (333). Can you see how 333 formed the framework for this momentous occasion? Of course, 333 + 333 equals 666. Occultists have used 333 as the hidden symbol by which they present the more offensive number 666. When the details of an event are so arranged as to contain certain sacred occult numbers or numeric combinations, this is literally an occult signature on the event. Only occultists will recognize this signature."
