**The natural numbers start
with 2 (TWO). The name "counting numbers" make that clear.
If there's only one item of a certain kind, one doesn't start counting.**

**Moreover, for most mathematicians,
counting stops at two as well, as anything larger than 1 is denoted by
`n', which is synonymous with `many, I don't care how many'.**

**Consequently, 3 must be
supposed to be infinity. The symbol for infinity is two 3's on top
of each other. This explains the mystery of Trinity.**

**I hope this simple solution
will stop the silly discussions about 0 being a natural number. My hope
will be in vain, I know.**
