Other than to help with memorization, there is no reason for the alphabet to be in order.
@Captain Magma, but what about for solving Riddles where numbers correspond with letters of the alphabet?
@A Math Dealer, as in, an order is required for ordering etc, but there is no reason any individual ordering should be chosen, including our current one.
@MidshipFungus73, why have order at all? Why not surrender to the chaos of the universe?
@Captain Magma, to order an index in a book? Order of a dictionary etc
@MidshipFungus73, Similarly, there's no reason that an hour is the length of time that it is. It's standardized for convenience.
@Captain Magma, there are many reasons to keep the alphabet in its current order. Think for ten seconds, one will come to mind.
@Naga Sadow, Or I could just look at everyone else's reply. Thanks for the downvote btw
@Captain Magma, no prob. It's not hard to tap a spot on my screen.
@Captain Magma, I do think it would have been cool if we found a way to order the letter first by vowel/consonant then by the mouth shape you need to make them or something. That would be really cool from a musical diction standpoint at least
@Captain Magma, only when it's a remix.
@CapnVulmorg, well an hour helps split up a day which helps make up weeks, months, and a year which is (roughly) one revolution around the earth- so hours actually have an objective length that allows for measurements based on the orbit of the earth around the sun
@ajr12100, why split a day into 24 pieces? Why not 25? Why not 20? Your argument would still be the same if an hour were a different length. The important thing is that we all agree on how long an hour is, just like we agree on what order the alphabet is in.
Booooo, tell your own jokes.
Be happy is not screaming.
