I can address the plagarism and theif comments as the ignorance of the uneducated.
Plagarism is an academic policy and holds as much weight outside of academia as bad table manners.
As for the criminality of it, I suggest a good reading of the fair use clauses of the copyright laws.
All the bitchng about 'plagarizing theives' is just assinine babbling of the misinformed and under educated. It is just another stupid urban myth.
<<raises hand>> I have to tell you that I find it very irritating when someone does not site source when they plagiarize anotherís work. I call folks out on it when I see it, and yes at times it can be a simple matter of a forgotten link, or being unaware of the implication. Can you imagine working for years on a subject, just to have someone else come along and take credit for it? It is my honest opinion that here in topix-land, when you post something under your avatar you are in essence saying its your own words, unless you credit another.

EDIT: Apparently thatís not the end of this article. My editors demand more content. Fine.
Plagiarism is taking another personís ideas Ė no matter the format: images, text, sculptures, anything Ė and then presenting them as your own by refusing to give the original source credit. Let me make this perfectly clear:
Any Source Ė online or offline
And format Ė text, images or anything else (Google image search? Totally counts.)
If you didnít make it, someone else did, and you are obligated to tell the reader who that was. If you present something to your readers without giving credit, the reader assumes you came up with it all on your own. Donít steal stuff, man!

Ha ha. Internet stalker so consumed with the other posters that she takes screen shots and gives round-the-clock whining commentary while simultaneously feigning indifference to this "backwater chatroom." You're a weirdo, Nancy.

Long before Jesus was around, Judaism had well established Numerology in the religion, of course, some being more pronounced within the doctrines than others.

I've studied and actually participated in different activities that have to do with Numerology - and IMO, it is very telling and an interesting "art" to say the least.
Numbers, like anything have known meanings, but many unknowns to the public eye. One would have to go physically look for the information, but it exists worldly and very accessible at public libraries and retail outlets.
To give a quick shout out to Numerology fans - here are some basic fundamentals:
1 - change - beginnings (or endings that show a new star), many 1s can indicated a 'pronounced change'
2 - sharing, helping - visualize two hands shaking - reunion
3 - group involvement - could also mean delays, but a future success
4 - manifestation of an idea
5 - lucky and unlucky change or challenges - material properity - spiritual poverty
6 - the ability to transcend difficulty - indicates adjustments in thoughts or attitudes
7 - a period of introspection and solitude
8 - positive character change (rarely diluted)
9 - situations nearing completion and a new journey awaits
10 = 1 - back to the beginning.
11 = 2
12 = 3
etc...
Cheers!
Hey, thanks for that link.
What I found very interesting on #17 is that the Hebrew month Tammuz is actually named after an earlier Babylonian god.

So here you have, a supposed monotheistic Hebrew religion incorporating a pagan god into their system.
Meanwhile, there ain't supposed to be more than one god, well at least to the later Jews and the christians.

Another piece of evidence that the earlier Hebrews were actually polytheistic.

Jesus was crucified yesterday, Nisan 14, at the third hour.(9 am)
Between the 6th to 9th hour, there was darness over the land, Jesus commended his spirit unto the father and died on the cross.
He was laid hastily in the borrowed tomb of Joseph of Arimethea, at sundown before the beginning of Passover.
Passover started on Monday.
So how can you celebrate an event that supposed have happened before Passover AFTER Passover?

Fair enough. According to that article, I posted something that was common knowledge to G and forgetting the link was not deliberate nor did I gain from it. By all means report me if you feel it's deserved but don't spend 3 months calling me a thief and a liar over it. This is not an academic environment either. I did not commit a crime.

I know it wasnít deliberate or for gainÖas you apologized for it back in December, saying that you were tired and forgot the link. I have never called you a thief or a liarÖ.I simply do not understand why anyone is trying to break it down to being anything other than dishonest and wrong to *intentionally* plagiarize.

I wish there was a link to just how stupid out is to accuse someone of plagerism on Topix.
What the fcuk is Topix? A gossip site for Appalachians.
It's right there in Wikipedia.
