“Where numerology came from and how it came to be is somewhat of a mystery, like many ancient philosophies. Egypt and Babylon are where the earliest written records of numerology are said to be.
Other evidence shows that numerology was used thousands of years ago in Rome, China, Greece, and Japan.
Modern-day numerology is normally credited to Pythagoras, who was a Greek philosopher. Although it is not known if he invented Numerology, he had some theories behind it, which took numbers to a completely different level. These theories are now the reason behind Pythagoras having the credit for modern-day numerology.
Dr. Julian Stenton was actually the person who came up with the name ‘Numerology’. He also bought recognition and awareness to it in modern-day times. There is not much else known about the whereabouts of Numerology, it has become quite popular in today’s society and is used by many.”
