    Dear Don (drose),

    In reply to my suggestion (10 Mar 2004 23:32:28 +0100) of an 'Idols'-like
    competition between religions on this list you wrote 10 Mar 2004
    19:45:48 -0500:
    'I suspect you'd have a difficult time finding a working definition of
    religion everyone could agree on, much less come to a consensus on
    It should load-up the inbox though...
    I know a Morman and an evangelical I'd love to invite to the discussion.'

    The interesting thing about the 'Idols'-model is, that the voters don't need
    to agree on a definition of music/religion, nor on the criteria for
    good/better/best... Exchanging definitions and criteria IS useful, but only
    as a way to influence other people's votes (and as a model to present one's
    favourite religion, but everyone presenting a religion is free to choose
    his/her own model). In the end both 'music'/'religion' and the 'idol' (the
    'best') are simply defined by the number of votes.

    Please do invite your Mormon and your evangelical.

    In my 10 Mar 2004 23:32:28 +0100 summary of the preceding discussion you can
    find some descriptions of 'religion' and some criteria for the 'best' one to
    start with. Feel free to use another definition and other criteria.
    (Preferably shorter definitions than Webster's one, reproduced by Leland 10
    Mar 2004 20:48:55 -0600.)

    I see it as a practical test of the validity of the MoQ: Like the test
    Pirsig subjected his students to according to 'Zen ...'. Do we really
    experience (what is/has/is had by) Quality or not?

    With friendly greetings,
