Subject : Fundamentalist - - - fundament - alist ....
hmmmm - .... dictionary definition :
fundament ..... from Latin fundus
fundus ............n, plural (fun)di, Anatomy. The inner
.....................basal surface of an organ farthest away
.....................from the opening
Sounds like a fundamentalist is (cover the eyes and ears
of the innocent children to preserve their innocence) an asshole ....

Well, Wendy, the first *ad* aimed at Barbie-izing/
Stepford Wives-ing women -
- the second is *monster networking* .... LOL (but ruefully)
> I never knew if my original Mormon statement/question made it through to the list.
It did. I remember ....
(snip) I think we all long to have a connection to a power greater than ourselves.
Being responsibly adult *is* scary and it *would*
be nice to be able to depend on somebody/
something other than ourselves ............
> There are sure a lot of ways to get there!
? Get where ? "Get" implies tangibility - the
various types of "heavens" are *not tangible*.
And since no one has come back to tell
us pro or con (no dead person nor any dead
I *really* do not understand *what* all this
"afterlife" stuff is about .... One would think
that after centuries of "no return" ... oh, well.
> I am not a fan of organized religion. I prefer to keep it spiritual and private.
Perhaps defining "spiritual" and "religious"
as *not equal to each other* *would* provide
some insight to people who cannot do that
for themselves .... I couldn't, not for *years*.
> Much of the rest seems like a matter of power, control, and money collecting.
