  1. Hey, all! Yes. This video is re-uploaded. Whether it was through YouTube or our editing software, the initial upload this morning was very glitch-y and even cut out our ending title card so I had to make some adjustments and re-upload. Thanks for your understanding and we hope you enjoy today's video. I actually really enjoyed this one.

  2. #8. You talk about it being a power symbol where "On" and "Off" were replaced by a line and a circle. The symbol you show is commonly seen on desktop computers where pressing the button toggles between On and Standby. But look at the On Off switch located on the power supply itself where setting the switch to the zero or circle position, puts the machine into a zero power state. Pressing the Standby button on the front will no longer have any effect. A true power symbol using the line and circle would have the line completely inside an unbroken circle. Have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_symbol

  3. Number 11…the crescent became the symbol of Islam because when the widowed wife of Mohammed (who was a worshiper of the moon God) ordered her husband to rid the temple of all false Gods…accept hers…it was adopted as the unifying symbol of the faith…

  4. #2: also used by Moses during a plague brought as punishment for the nation of Israel's rebellion/sin. Whoever looked upon the staff with the serpent was healed, thus stopping the plague. It was a test of obedience.

  5. I thought the medical symbol (Rod of Asclepius
    ) was based on the biblical story of Moses placing a bronzed snake on a staff and people were healed when they looked towards the staff.
