# Top Ten Reasons Three Is a Better, Far More Significant Number Than Four and Five

Hey guys, if you're not satisfied with 4 or 5, don't worry, three is coming to the rescue!

Anyway, three is a much better number than four or five. If you don't like three, that's your problem. If you feel like a rebel and don't like 4 or 5, 3 is for you!
The Top Ten
1 Earth is the third planet from the Sun

Well, I think you could take away Mercury and it wouldn't change the Earth at all. Then again, you could also take away Jupiter from the solar system and have little impact. I don't want to have to eat my words though, for all I know, taking Jupiter away could lead to an apocalyptic event, so please don't take any planets away from our solar system. My point is... umm, I don't really know, but I'm posting this comment anyways!

Just think about it for a second: Earth, the blue planet, and the third planet gave birth to animals, humans, knowledge, and everything we know of on this planet. We also live on Earth, and without humans coming to Earth, physics, art, and many other things would not have existed.

2 There are three sides on a triangle

Triangles are useful for pretty much anything. There is a triangle in every single shape. Every single one.

And, this fact is also good for Illuminati Confirmed.

3 There are three famous Greek philosophers

We've got Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle... doesn't that make three? Even the Greeks knew three was superior...

Not to forget Pythagoras, Epicurus, Archimedes, Thales, and many more!

4 There are three numbers involved in TheTopTens number argument

How about this: 3x4x5=60. Let's agree that 60 is TTT's official perfect number. Unless we want to take TBBT approach and say 73. Or take a nerdier approach and say 42. Or a mathematical approach and say 6?

This makes three much more useful, doesn't it?

5 There were three main countries on both the Axis and the Allies

Those politicians have good taste in numbers.

If only we didn't have the three Axis powers...

10 3 is the number of dimensions humans can perceive
