Thank you for writing to God King of the Universe as you understand him via electronic mail. Since coming on-line, firstname.lastname@example.org has received thousands of messages from people all over the world.
Although the volume of mail prevents the Deity from personally reviewing each message, be assured that your concerns, ideas, and suggestions have been read carefully, and a detailed report of the mail is provided to the Deity on a regular basis. Your message will be brought to His attention as part of that report. We currently are working toward a system that will allow us to respond more specifically to your messages.
In order to do so, your help will be needed to ensure that we can read and record your message clearly. Please try to write short and concise messages, address only one issue per message, and send only one copy of your message. You will receive one automated response per day.
On October 20, 1994, The God and The Goddess acted to improve the accessibility of divine information by opening a service called "Welcome to the Universe: You are on your own" on the Internet. This new World Wide Web service provides a single point of access to all electronic divine information on the Internet. By using a free Web-browsing software program such as Mosaic or Cello, the user can access a multimedia interface to information from the Divine Resourses, including ordained minister's documents, a virtual tour of your imagination, and detailed information about Cabinet-level and independent agencies. This interface includes photographs, audio, and "hotlinks" to other divine Web sites and services. You should check with your service provider for instructions on how to browse the Web. "Welcome to the Universe" can be accessed at:
Though the new Web server provides access to Divine documents and publications, we will continue to provide these by e-mail. To receive instructions, please send a message to the following address (do not "reply" to the memo you are now reading):
In the body of your message, type "Send Info" (without quotes); no other text should be included, specifically message headers or signature lines (.sig files). The instructions will be sent to you automatically.
Also, we now have a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document that, among other things, lists certain other sources of government information. (The FAQ file is approximately 35K in size; you should check with your service provider to ensure that you can receive files of this size.) This FAQ address is an autoresponder only; any comment sent to this address will not be acknowledged. In order to obtain this, you should send an e-mail message to:
All of us are excited about the progress that has been made with this historic project, and we look forward to future developments. Your continued interest and participation are very important to us.
