Jared,
Thank you again.
I beg you to realize this was not a moment for me to come out of the closet and share my sad story. Mine is actually a happy story. I survived the abusers and the first psychiatrist as well.

My story (example) has everything to do with science. My post was not about marriage.

The point I am trying to make and with a lot of case history for you at my expense is that all students of the sciences need to go up on the ladder and look from a higher altitude.

Disassembled some of your older models, for example the grouping of words and the use of the word belief.

It's possible numerology does have some worth. Maybe it is just the way it is presented.
The OP did not specify which system of numerology.
You your self said it.

I do have to get busy on something.
Good day
 
Hi jarednjames, Thank you for your comments on my post. I agree with how things get piled together in a grouping and suffer the company of all that is in there.
I needed to mention to a poster in a thread about ufo's. My beliefs really have nothing to do with anything I post here if you are trying to say that because I am of a "faith based" tradition and people, I have a "belief" that colors everything I say and do. No!
It does not.
It is actually the tradition of my people within the "faith based" community to question everything.
The name of this thread goes by "Do you believe numbers effect our personality?"
I think this is a poor way to present the question on a science forum. Or any forum for that matter unless you want to ID all "faithful" type personalities.

Please allow me give you an example of how "numbers" and weak studies that fall under science and in this case the medical field do effect our personalities and very lives.

I am a survivor of domestic violence, a lot of people here know this.
Many years ago while being seen for a pre natal check up and broke out in tears and told the doctor I was being beat every day and many time knocked out. The doctor gave ME a tranquilizer.
Now you can start counting and calculating how numbers, observation, science, commerce, and failed science studies can actually kill someone.
I took the medicine. My baby thankfully was born OK. I continued to take beatings but finally left successfully.

Fast forward many years.
An arranged marriage in a "faith based" community and I get another abuser. Mazel Tov! First he breaks the glass and then he breaks my head.
From the part of the world where he comes this is how they treat women.
It's a custom a tradition.

He says to me "a woman has a snake in her and the husband needs to beat it to come out of her mouth and then she will be a "faithful" loving wife." :surprised

This man was not an American which I am and I was not up on this tradition.
He watched me very carefully and it was hard to get out but I did. Thankfully before dying.

I ended up in a battered woman's shelter and like all woman there, went through medical exams and psychological evaluation.

Are you counting? Are you sleeping? WAKE UP! Thank you.

My symptoms at the time were shaking uncontrollably, scattered thinking, fainting, .... Well you might imagine, I was afraid this man would find me and kill me, a shared feeling of many battered people.

COUNT!
That psychiatrist threw the book at me. The entire DSM IV. I went in a terrified young woman who could not even trust her own "faith based" leaders who I was imagining knew this man would beat me, and came out of her office a full schizophrenic with a huge amount of medications to keep me from being a danger to myself and others.

I did not take that medication. I waited ....... 12 years later, I finally ended up with the correct diagnosis. PTSD, depression and anxiety d/o. I never had schizophrenia.
Psychiatry is a part of the medical system that is based on science that is based on numbers.
How much "belief," speculation and and room for error is there in this very dangerous area of science that is based on data (numbers)?
Thankfully it is advancing. But it did not do so without the data of which I am part.
...And this is why you're so loveable, interesting, and still intellectually honest. I take your meaning, there is science, there is that borderland of science and art (medicine), and the practiced arts (psychology).

You know I don't believe in numerology of any kind, but part of not meeting scientific standards is that there is no time limit. People can have beliefs, explore them, and as long as they return to the beginning with the scientific method, you won't be led far astray. It's not what you explore or believe that defines you, if you're willing to accept its place in the world; I believe that you do.

@Jared: I say this from personal experience around this topic, and from my professed lack of belief: Lacy is almost certainly explaining that she sees a difference between the underlying sciences, the derived sciences, and the derived scientific arts, beyond which are non-scientific arts. Those latter may or may not be real, but most importantly is recognizing what is a cultural or personal belief while not calling it science. If I didn't know her and others of a similar mindset, I'd react much as you have, but in this case I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

You know nismar, where I come from we call friends like you family. However from the little personal information I have been able to get from you I would almost have to call our friendship "faith based" :rofl: requiring me to be a whole lot more "religious" than I would have otherwise been. I don't know where we would be related unless you came from that rabbit family one of my family married into.
That you come from India and are transplanted somewhere "safe." That you are actually Older than me by 3-4 years and you are working on something you don't talk about.
If not an actual country could you just give me some PO box I can mail you a Golden Shovel and waste high boots. Thanks and thank you Jared.

For example the number of brain cells one is using.
Some of us are using far less than with which were were originally blessed.

As a school project I would like to ask if you beleive in numerology (The study of numbers on human affairs). So all I need you to do is post and vote yes or no. And if you want too you can state your opinion.
I don't know what numerology is, and as an expression of that I chose to not vote.

I go by the standard definition of supernatural.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supernatural
If it's in my apartment without my permission and I can't aikido it's *** to the floor, I stop caring whether it's pre or post dead. If it's not screaming for bloody life, repentence, and the absolution of prior sins, it's dead.

Questions?

I really am a nice guy, by the way, and keep getting invited to parties in part because I believe in what's right.

As my mother in law told me years ago: "Do the right thing." Thanks, Rosalie. I always have, and always will.

Lol, perhaps that's the wisest choice. :)

Now it's that kind of misinformation that's going to get me into trouble! :wink: Still, right back at you, in only good ways. :smile: Besides, you already gave me a great line, "...I call that failing math."(Lacy33) I know where you stand, and how you view the world, differently than I and many here, but by no means incompatible.

@Mugs: Good advice... remind me not to accost you in your apartment... or ever! :biggrin:
