Numbers can say anything. You can argue that numbers are the most important things in the world. The numbers in Bill Gates' bank account are bigger than those in mine (not to mention a number of sizeable nations around the world). The higher an IQ is, the more intelligent a person is. I have quite a high IQ (allegedly) but I'm not sure how to put shelves up.
Numbers are just numbers. They indicate something but don't necessarily mean a lot.
