Well TEd, you certainly like to write or maybe copy and paste.   
I write and I often cut and paste from previous postings to be efficient.

Romans 8:29, "For whom he did foreknow," ,,,, You do a lot of assuming so let me relieve you so of that assumptions.
To read it literally, GOD says  "For whom he did foreknow," ,   He did not stutter.

Somewhere in the eons of time prior to creation, God made a decision to predestinate something. We find out that decision was to predestinate (elect) some men. By logic, in order to Predestinate many of  multitude(S), God would know all people the He would create on earth. Through His sovereignty He decided He would elect some and others He would not.

You say he does not know those who he does not elect. I differ with you here. HE knows you, HE made you. He gave you you first Breath.

  You misread:
Romans 8:29 claims that those HE foreknew were predestined to be conformed to Chirst. Since some are damned instead of being conformed to Chirst, logic says they must not have been foreknown. This interpretation rests quite clearly on Christ's own words referring to HIS relationship with the false miracle workers and foolish virgins:
Matt 7:22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’
Never: 3763. oudepote:
Definition: never
Usage: never.

Matthew 25:12 But he replied, 'Truly I tell you, I do not know you.'
I did not include these references because I took it for granted they were well known as having important theological implications.

Jesus claims there are people He NEVER knew even though He created them and their lives so there must be a difference between those He never knew or does not not know and the others whom HE foreknows… as I already explained.

I merely contend that those He foreknew for predestination are the elect and those whom He does not know, actually those He never knew, are the damned, condemned already for their (already) unbelief in the name of HIS Son: Jn 3:18 Whoever believes in him (His foreknown elect) is not condemned, but whoever does not believe (those not known non-elect) stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

Perhaps you will share with me your interpretation of what I NEVER KNEW THEE! and I do not know thee! might mean and how do they not contradict the idea that He must know everyone from their creation?

Sooooo, he does not know everybody? WHo made you...your cells...

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
