The Significance of the Number 11 in the Attack on America



Summary of eRumor:
This email lists a lot of incidences of the number 11 in the names and numbers associated with the terrorist attacks on September 11.

The Truth:

Most folks don’t go looking for appearances of numbers in events like the terrorist attacks, but when you do, you’ll find sequences, patterns, and other odd things.  In this case, perhaps of September 11, someone decided to pinpoint the number 11.

There is a humorous response to this circulating on the Internet that bears passing on said to have been written by a David Pawson:

Oh my God! 
How worried should I be? 
There are 11 letters in the name “David Pawson!” 
I’m going into hiding NOW. 
See you in a few weeks. Wait a sec … just realized “YOU CAN’T HIDE” also has 11 letters!
What am I gonna do? Help me!!! 
The terrorists are after me! ME!  I can’t believe it!
Oh crap, there must be someplace on the planet Earth I could hide!  But no …”PLANET EARTH” has 11 letters, too! 
Maybe Nostradamus can help me. But dare I trust him? There are 11 letters in “NOSTRADAMUS.”  I know, the Red Cross can help. No they can’t… 11 letters in “THE RED CROSS,” can’t trust them. I would rely on self defense, but “SELF DEFENSE” has 11 letters in it, too! 
Can someone help?
Anyone? If so, send me email. No, don’t… “SEND ME EMAIL” has 11 letters….
Will this never end?
I’m going insane! “GOING INSANE???” Eleven letters!! Nooooooooooo!!!!!! I guess I’ll die alone, even though “I’LL DIE ALONE” has 11 letters…..
Oh my God, I just realized that America is doomed! Our Independence Day is July 4th … 7/4 … 7+4=11!

 PS. “IT’S BULLSHIT” has 11 letters also.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

The date of the attack: 9/11 – 9 + 1 + 1 = 11

September 11th is the 254th day of the year: 2 + 5 + 4 = 11

After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year.  

119 is the area code to Iraq/Iran. 1 + 1 + 9 = 11

Twin Towers – standing side by side, looks like the number 11 

The first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11

State of New York – The 11th State added to the Union 

New York City – 11 Letters

Afghanistan – 11 Letters

The Pentagon – 11 > Letters

Ramzi Yousef – 11 Letters (convicted or orchestrating the attack at the WTC in 1993)

Flight 11 – 92 on board – 9 + 2 = 11 

Flight 77 – 65 on board – 6 + 5 = 11
