Don't really know why I'm posting this other than upping my post count...Here are the Dewey Decimal numbers for Religion. All of them can be found here:http://www.tnrdlib.bc.ca/dewey.html#top

I haven't seen a Dewey Decimal library in 20 years. Are you sure that the LOC system hasn't overtaken the DD system? In the LOC system, all the theology and biblical studies and philosophy stuff is in the B's. Biblical Studies is in the BS's.

the most interesting thing about the dewey decimal system is this news story

"The nonprofit library cooperative that owns the Dewey Decimal system has filed suit against a library-themed luxury hotel in Manhattan for trademark infringement.

The Library Hotel, which overlooks the New York Public Library, is divided according to the classification system, with each floor dedicated to one of Dewey's 10 categories.

Room 700.003 includes books on the performing arts, for example, while room 800.001 has a collection of erotic literature."

For what it's worth...here's the LOC system on philosophy and religion

Every library I have used in years uses LOC. I still prefer Dewey. I guess I'm a dinosaur.

Hey, when was the last time anyone used a card catalog in a library? It seems that everything is online now. Have you ever been trying to find a book's number and their server crash? That's why I merely put up with computers rather than embrace them.

I love the scene in the movie UHF where Conan the Librarian chastises a youth saying, "Don't you know the Dewey Decimal System??!!!!!!", and then slices him right down the middle with his broad sword.

I shared this in the spirit of upping my post count. :banana:

Stop it, (hahahahahaha) you're killing me!

What do you think R.J. Fletcher Sr. would say if here were alive today?

Probably something like "Help! Let me outta this box! I can't breathe in here! Help! Lemme out..."

Wish I could, but the madness must continue:

Crazy Ernie: If nobody comes down here and buys a car in the next hour, I'm gonna club this baby seal. That's right. I'm gonna club this seal to make a better deal. You know I'll do it, to, cause I'm crazy

Stanley Spadowski: Life is like a mop. Sometimes life gets full of dirt and crud and hairballs and things and you gotta clean it out. You gotta stick it in here and rinse it off and start all over again. And sometimes life sticks to the floor so much that a mop, a mop, it's not good enough. You gotta get down there with like a toothbrush, you know, and you gotta really scrub 'cause you gotta get it off. But if that doesn't work, you can't give up. You gotta stand right up. You gotta run to a window and say, "These floors are dirty as hell, and I'm not gonna take it any more."

[George and Bob just got fired again]
Bob: How could you do this to me? I knew this was gonna happen.
George Newman: You're right, Bob. I'm sorry. What can I say? I-I'm a miserable worthless hunk of slime. Here, I want you to take this crowbar and just bash my head right in. Go ahead. Really. Just BASH my head right in.
Bob: George, you know I can't do that. You still owe me 5 bucks

[afterlosing his thumb in a table saw]
Joe Earley: Can you believe this? Would you look at that? Just call me "Mr. Butterfingers." I think it's on the floor somewhere. Is my face red.

Ok, here's some trivia that I bet even the encyclopedic Andrew Myers doesn't know.
The little old man who asks for change in the movie is Vance Colvig, Jr. He was the third person to play Bozo the Clown. His father, Pinto (Vance) Colvig was the very first, the original. Pinto was also the voice of Goofy and Pluto and a couple of the 7 dwarfs in the Disney cartoons.

My work is done here, I'll be returning to my planet.
