A concept invented around the fourth century CE and solidified in The Nicene Creed, by a council presided over by the Emperor Constantine. Despite being one of the tenets of modern Christianity, there is no actual mention of a Trinity in the Bible, the closest reference perhaps being Matthew 28:19. A similar reference in I John (5:7) is confined to the footnotes of many Bible translations, since it's authenticity is subject to much suspicion. Translations of this verse include:

NIV: there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.

KJV: For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

NLV: So we have these three witnesses -- the Spirit, the water, and the blood--and all three agree.

However, there is no reference to the "Word", or "Holy Ghost" in the sense of a trinity-like association in any Greek manuscript before the sixteenth century, thus it is rejected by most scholars.

In contrast, there are passages from the Bible that actually contradict the idea of a trinity, namely:

Dueteronomy 6:4 (KJV): Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD

Repeated yet again:

Mark 12:29 (KJV): And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord

There are too references to Jesus and God as two separate entities (bearing in mind that "God" itself is supposedly the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as One):

Mark 16:19 (KJV): So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Such inconsistencies have led some religious offshoots (Most notably the Jehovah's Witnesses) to reject the notion of the trinity. Such questioning of the existence of the Trinity causes hot debate amongst scholars and theologians, and conservative Christians. However, there is indisputable evidence that suggests the Trinity is nothing more than a man-made concept, tacked onto the end of an existing doctrine.
Do you believe the Trinity is false?

In Wiccan and Neopagan belief, the triqueta symbolizes the triple aspected goddess (Maiden, Mother, and Crone). Some Christians have protested this "appropriation" of the symbol...however, ironically enough, the original Christian fish symbol was derived from an early symbol of venus, one representing female generative organs- making the triquetra/trinity perfectly appropriate symbol for a Goddess revival. The triquetra/trinity is also considered to represnt the triplicities of mind, body, and soul, as well as the three domains of earth- earth, sea, and sky.
1) In the TV show Charmed three sister's (Prue(1998-2001), Piper, Phoebe, and Paige(2001-) Halliwell)create the Power of Three their symbol is the powerful Trinity/Triquetra.

2) The Trinity/Triquetra is the symbol of Three maiden, mother, and crone.
