The Number "32" : is also very
important in Freemasonry. There were only 32 Degrees in the
Scottish Rite,, until Albert Pike introduced the 33rd Degree in 1832. Since then, "33" has become very
important. But, still there are signs of the "32" in our society. For instance water liquifies after "32"
Degrees. Was Fahrenheit a Mason? Probably. Where did we get the idea of "Degrees" to measure heat.
I think it had something to do with Jaques De Moley being burned at the stake in 1314. The "Heat" of
fire would later be measured in degrees. Unless someone can point out that they used the term
"Degrees" to measure heat back in the 1100's and 1200's, which I highly doubt. http://www.freedomdomain.com/freemason.html
