In the literature of antiquity including The Bible the number seven is very prevalent.
It also seems quite popular in today's world.
The number of mentions of seven in the many Bible translations seems to be a hint to pay a little closer attention to something despite it not being a 'natural' number like the number of fingers and toes.
The Bible's Seven Seals are one its greatest unexplained mysteries.
Religion's Seven Deadly Sins are one of this writer's favorite philosophical study pieces.
New York State has a Lucky Seven lottery game.
Does anyone besides those versed in sacred scripture have a clue how seven became so popular?
