Okay, I'm sure this is all coincidental and that these types of things can be found in every tragic event if searched. But, I must say these are some pretty weird things. I'm sure you've heard this one and/or received the e-mail, but I thought I'd add it here. I'm at home going through my e-mail (I had 1700+ e-mails because I haven't checked them lately) and I came across this e-mail. Part of me thinks I've seen this already, but the Wingdings thing doesn't ring a bell. Read on - crazy coincidences. And, might I add that SOMEONE has waaaay too much time on his/her hands, but who am I to judge. :0)

1) New York City has 11 letters

2) Afghanistan has 11 letters.

3) Ramsin Yuseb (The terrorist who threatened to destroy the Twin Towers in 1993) has 11 letters.

4) George W Bush has 11 letters.

5) The two twin towers make an "11"

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets more interesting:

1) New York is the 11th state.

2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.

3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11

4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 = 11

5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 = 11

6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911. 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

7) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254. 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.

8) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year. Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.

9) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.

10) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.

Now this is where things get totally eerie:

The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy book:

"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.

Still uncovinced about all of this..?! Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:

Open Microsoft Word and do the following(TRY THIS FOR REAL)

1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to hit one of the Twin Towers.

2. Highlight the Q33 N

3. Change the font size to 48.

4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS

Scary Huh??

That's a really eerie list, but there's one thing. Verse 9.11 of the Quran actually reads, "But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith; and We make the communications clear for a people who know."

The chain email stating that verse 9.11 about the Eagle taking revenge on the lands of Allah was a hoax.
My MIL thought it was legit, too, I actually had to show her the section in the Quran and have her read it for herself.
