chemistry-religion-trinity_smEver notice in chemistry and science, how some things “come in three’s”?

Let’s take a brief quiz…

1. How many basic parts of the atom are there?

3 – Protons, Neutrons, Electrons

2. How many phases of matter are there?

3 – Solid, Liquid, Gas

3. How many types of elements are there?

3 – Metals, Non-Metals, Semi-conductors

4. How many basic laws of thermodynamics are there?

3 – First, Second, Third (Yes, there is the zeroth but 1, 2, & 3 are most commonly taught.)

5. How many parts of the earth are there?

3 – Hydrosphere, Lithosphere, Atmosphere

6. How many types of pH are there?

3 – Acidic, Basic, Neutral

7. How many types of numbers are there?

3 – Positive, Negative, and Zero

8. How many types of chemical bonds are there?

3 – Ionic, Covalent, Metallic

9. How many types of electrolytes are there?

3 – Strong, Weak, and Non

10. How many theories of bonding are there?

3 – VSEPR, Valence Bond, Molecular Orbital

11. Some Thermodynamic Equalities

3 – ∆Go = -RT ln Keq = -nFEo

Does The Trinity leave an identifying stamp in nature, even in chemistry? Hmmm, something to think about…
