    And my claim is yes you can. Even the make up of population in general will tell you that.

    What is it that I've missed which makes you so certain that someone has been cheating in the poll?
    When one "value" all of a sudden jumps up out of nowhere by almost 1/3rd compared to all the rest, we can use Occam's razor and call shenanigans.

    To which I replied with: "How do you know the smart ones know that?
    Did you make a poll?"

    The conclusion is that my words were indeed directly related to yours, contrary to your claim that my words had nothing to do with yours.
    And my claim is yes you can. Even the make up of population in general will tell you that.
    Then how can you tell what unregistered votes are the result of a guest that voted in the poll and what unregistered votes are the result of cheating?
    Please do explain.

    That's far from being common sense, and if it is, it is the rare sense that should be applauded.

    One value gaining more unregistered votes than another means not that the value had cheaters manipulating it.
    Especially not when this value is the highest value among the values listed.
    Logic simply escapes this claim.

    Unitarianism.

    • the belief in One God and the oneness or unity of God (in contrast to the Trinity).
    • the life and teachings of Jesus Christ is the exemplar model for living one's own life.
    • that reason, rational thought, science, and philosophy coexist with faith in God.
    • that man has the ability to exercise free will in a responsible, constructive and ethical manner
    • the belief that human nature in its present condition is neither inherently corrupt nor depraved (see Original Sin), but capable of both good and evil, as God intended.
    • the conviction that no religion can claim an absolute monopoly on the Holy Spirit or theological truth.
    • the belief that, though the authors of the Bible were inspired by God, they were humans and therefore subject to human error.
    • the rejection of traditional doctrines that they believe malign God's character or veil the true nature and mission of Jesus Christ, such as the doctrines of predestination, eternal damnation, and the vicarious sacrifice or satisfaction theory of the Atonement.

    I think Occam's Razor would cut your silly theory to shreds. It's far simpler to believe that guests are voting in this poll than to believe that the atheists of this board are conspiring to rig a poll by signing out and voting anonymously.
