To be honest, I don't have a sufficient understanding of numerology except that readers are connecting numbers to people and their fate. Maybe I have to be prudent with my comments on this topic so I would not offend anyone here.

My take on numerology is the same as what I said about horoscope. Why are the fates of people dependent on something? Maybe I am a skeptic. However, I also believe when the prediction has a very high rate of coming true. But then again, predictions are always subject to a low rate of success like 10% more or less. The 90% of predictions are failures.
