A Color 

A guide to interpretation.  You can trust numbers and maybe colors to be reliably translated.  Not so much with the other words.  The “words of God” are seen differently by the many different translators.  Who can you trust?  Historians.  What can you trust?  Maybe numbers.  Historians have trouble with dates but they do get close enough.

A Historian 

A problem with dates.  Gibbon gets real close.  Go ahead, pick an Islamic calendar converter and put 46 in it. You get 666. 46 is the number Gibbon used. 46 years after the Hijri year Constantinople was attacked. A date is a mark. Gibbon notes the problems with dates.

A Signature 

A face identification.  A controlled ballot.  A means to restrict voting.  Yes.  There are those who will cheat big time.  Big enough to change the outcome of a state.  They just need a city big enough and controlled by one party.  Enter Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, etc. where observers were not allowed to observe.  They were not allowed to testify about it.
