You need to add Pantheist to the mix.

What is a Pantheist? There is a guy at the Doggie Doo Run Run would seemed to have this set of beliefs and he tried to explain in to me but all I could really think is... hmmmmmmmmm. :joke: He seemed to say that God was in all things??

I added "Pantheist" to the poll.

I have no control over what the computer program boldfaces. I thought that just showed what I clicked on but that this was different with everyone who has made a click on something. I do not know what it would do if no "religion" had been clicked on.

I have no agenda of trying to convert people to my religion. I did click on Protestant for my own religion and had thought it just showed me what I had clicked on? :dontknow:

Diskman, I think anyone who has read Tal's 500+ posts 024 would agree that this survey doesn't have any hidden agenda. He is just providing a survey which many of us find interesting.

I do have an agenda with respect to my fight for victims' rights which I have mentioned in some posts on TOTV but the various polls and most of my almost 700 messages on TOTV have absolutely nothing to do with this struggle.

As to my agenda, I did kind of get ****ed off my how much the media talks about the December 5, 2007 shooter in Omaha rather than focusing on the victims. They should be the main story not some cowardly :edit: who wants to be famous by piling up innocent bodies.

I have used the numbers 2 2 4 and 6 1 3 to tell people about why I have been working on this so long now about 17 years even though my interest in this stems from events starting on February 24, 1976 (2 -24) in Reno, Nevada. It is merely a co-incidence that John 3:16 is also a very important part of the core beliefs in Christianity.

I had tried to get public health people interested in empowering victims through providing access to practical information accessible through libraries after I was subject 6 1 3 in a 17 week study at the Medical School at the University of CA San Francisco in late 1992-1993.

I sent probably 3 million e-mails out over the past nine years trying to improve what's out there accessible over the Internet and elsewhere for survivors of crimes but so far have not had a significant impact on many libraries' holdings in the US. Got to some of them with my message but not that many.

I have tried to get churches and other religious organizations; Hollywood; educational associations; sports leaders, and the like interested in this cause too again using these two numbers (2 2 4 and 6 1 3) to describe why this cause is important.

What's significant about Feb 24, 1976, Reno?

Date (2-24-1976) of a murder of a young woman near the University of Nevada, Reno campus-- Michelle Mitchell-- who was the daughter of two English teachers from two different Reno area high schools. The murder was solved in 1979 after one of the conspirators bragged to his cellmate in jail in Louisiana about getting away with this murder. These conspirators had murdered Michelle Mitchell as a ploy to try to collect on some kind of insurance interest they had had on a casino employee they had murdered around the same day of February 24. They wanted to make it appear a Ted Bundy like serial killer was in the Reno-Sparks community and had just picked Michelle Mitchell at random on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. She was a nursing student there.

This is a well known murder to the people of this area because it was in the news so often from February 25, 1976 through at least 1985. Appeals and the like. It was again not solved until 1979.

Mills Lane was one of the prosecutors in this case. He was also the TV judge and the boxing referee for the Tyson/Holyfeld ear biting match. He had in addition been a bridge partner of my parents before 1976.

I was a teacher's pet of the mother of Michelle Mitchell at Earl Wooster High School. I graduated high school in 3 years in 1976.

I went back to Reno, Nevada in the Summer of 1989 having just graduated from the U of MN Law School in May 1989 for a law librarian convention where I was introduced as the cataloger of about 2600 ? computer files on Westlaw. This was a national project to make library users able to see what was WESTLAW from a library catalog. The project failed soon after 1991 because of how quickly WESTLAW changes.

Thanks T. And I'm curious about your comment regarding 3:16 as well.

In 1991, the U of MN Law Library pushed my interest in doing something about a niche I had seen in libraries for survivors of crimes back on me-- i.e. you need mental health counseling for bringing this up. Or something like that.

I had tried to get the UC San Francisco Medical School researchers interested in this cause. I was subject 6 1 3 in a study they had had on stress on the unemployed. The study was in late 1992-1993.

The annual law librarian convention in 1992-- which I went to but was pretty much just laughed at-- was in San Francisco, CA in the Summer of 1992.

The UC SF researcher had told me I had a good cause. She said that after the research was done though I suppose not to affect the various tests they were doing on chemicals in my blood over the 17 weeks of I so I was in this study in late 1992-1993.

T, thanks. I presume that you may be referring to PTSD and the subsequent effect of biochemical changes on neuroanatomy with concurrent influences on long-term emotional memory. A pet project of mine (long ago) focused on studying how moderate stressors effect cortisol/norephinephrine ratios in blood plasma and correlated to disturbances in individual circadian rhythms, inter alia.

I'm curious about the legal aspect to which you allude. Feel free to email me as we have strayed way off topic.
