Thanks Suzanne, and Friends::
Those qualities (below enumerated) are to my understanding, indeed
But what are they based on?
The spiritual nature of everything where there is true equality and
brotherhood is an expression of this unity. Perhaps "mutual
tolerance" is one of the best "glues" around.
I notice that the word "fundamentalist? is again bandied around
It is good to be a fundamentalist, because at least then we know we
start out ( S D I 14 - 19) with universal, unqualifyable SPIRIT. We
then proceed through consciousness, intelligence, law (fair and equal
for all) to harmonize in a vast evolutionary process where every
"part" in honored as an immortal Pilgrim journeying back from the
illusions of material forms to the brotherhood of the ONE SPIRIT. I
am with Nick Weeks in that concept.
In mathematics no one accuses any professor in the sciences of being a
"fundamentalist" as a term of opprobrium. Without some basic unity no
one could speak to any one else.
So what is the matter with philosophers? Are they seeking to get at
TRUTH or do they want a band of sycophants and "yes-men" hanging on
their every word? How do you get folk to go to work and do it
themselves ? Then only will they know for sure.

Subject: Re: Standard of Truth?
Seems to me there are universal aspects (a golden thread) common to
all teachings... only the outer symbols change. High moral and
ethical qualities and standards are the same (universal) in every
culture. High quality love, honesty, truthfulness etc are
universally the same throughout humanity. Are not these qualities
the means to the end result we all seek?
