I got the insinuation, Cz vs. Z in RZC - I though it was funny.  But I wanted to appease LBK, so I scribbled my comment. You know, we're getting into a silly conversation. :P

Appease me? Hey, I don't bite (at least, not unless I really have to!  :laugh:). But I completely agree this is truly a silly thread (I wouldn't call it a conversation, given IPC's continued reluctance to come clean about his "jurisdiction".  :police:
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

Its kind of like a polititician getting up on the soap box, only to spout his ideas, then getting off any time we ask him what he thinks about "x". He's a true politician, goes everywhere but directly to the point.

I was talking, by e-mail, with a friend in Irkutsk who makes it his interest to follow dissident religious groups in Russia.  He has not heard of the Russian Zarist Church.

He mentioned that he thinks that Albania has an "Albanian Zogist Church" and he wondered if they were some sort of sister organisations.

My thought's as well, like most politicians, the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, are three different things, and I'm afraid that IPC truly believes he say's nothing but the truth.
Are you content with just being an intelligent hairless ape that just cannot resist the primitive urge to fling poo at people passing by,  just like a monkey in the zoo ?

Do you stay in the field and do the work that you accepted, or do you continuously run back into town and give people black eyes, or maybe push them down the stairs, because they don't do what you do ?

Here's a reference to a "Tsarist Church" which was a museum exhibit in Russia:

"Tsarist Church. Holy Relics of the Kremlin's Annunciation Cathedral"

Perhaps people in the Tsarist Church worship the Golden Pigeon?  ;D

Yeah, but what exactly is a "daimon"?

Quote
Hesiod relates how the men of the Golden Age were transmuted into daimones by the will of Zeus, to serve as ineffable guardians of mortals, whom they might serve by their benevolence. [4] In similar ways, the daimon of a venerated hero or a founder figure, located in one place by the construction of a shrine rather than left unburied to wander, would confer good fortune and protection on those who stopped to offer respect. Daemones were not considered evil.
If you will, you can become all flame.

In order to become whole, take the "I" out of "holiness".
