the reason I present this Taxonomy — to make sense out of non-sense.
A simple historical classification system (below) accurately defines confused sub-groups of non-dukhobor Spiritual Christians, who, a century ago were told by Demens and Young and Samarin in Los Angeles that they should all falsely claim to be "Molokans" in America no matter what or who they were in Russia, or became in America.
Imagine that your spiritual friends hear that "yellow-tail tuna are running at Long Beach." They chartered a boat and invited you. The boat captain stops at a school of barracuda claiming they are tuna. "They swim, have a head and tail." Would you complain? It is a monument to their stupidity, like people who continue to say that Aboriginal Indigenous Peoples, Native North Americans, Tribes, First Nations, etc. Not knowing the right words is silly, like calling all animals with 4 feet and a tail "cats" because you don't know the other names (dog, horse, mouse, sheep, wolf, etc.); or, a dude not knowing the names of their tools, calling everything "hammer" because it has a stick handle.Avoid confusing English labels, except to define the original labels in the Russian language.Avoid misinformation and disinformation published after 1900.——————————— Short answer to question 1: Why do so many falsely call themselves "Molokan"? Most are Dukh-i-zhizniki, some are Pryguny, and some with mixtures of other Spiritual Christian faiths — malakan.To hide a complicated, confusing and illegal history in Old Russia which misled descendants' understanding of their origins; confused many with the similar term malakan; and, it is an easy and safe, though incorrect, word to use in English. ——————————————————————————— Why should I care about this simple Taxonomy? To get a little education, just a little, so your vocabulary will be clearer to you, and others will know what you are talking about.** "Sect" and "sectarian" as derived from the Latin secta, "a way, road" ...a discipline or school of thought as defined by a set of methods and doctrines.should be used when generally referring to an unknown or mixed religious group(s) of non-Orthodox, non-Jewish, non-Muslim and similar Protestant-like faiths and/or groups in, or from, Old Russia, and/ or their descendants.Their ancestry can be a mixture of Caucasian and Asiatic peoples; including Armenian, Chuvash, Finn, German, Russian, Tatar, Ukrainian, Mordvin, etc.* The term "Spiritual Christianity" (Russian: dukhovnoe khristianstvo) specifically refers to "Russian folk Protestantism," not all of the 100 types of sectarians (Russian: sektanty).The phrase was used by Molokane to and other heretics to describe themselves, and was popularized in scientific literature by Moscow Professor Alexander Ilyich Klibanov (1910-1994), a historian, religious scholar, and pioneering researcher of religious and social movements in Russia.
