You don't understand what 'Spiritualists' are....

A 'Spiritualist' (you're in the forum Religions & Faiths, Spiritualism) is someone who subscribes to the philosophy, science and religion (in the UK) of Spiritualism.

Spiritualism Definitions

Spiritualism is defined on my computer’s dictionary as, ‘monotheistic belief system or religion, postulating a belief in God but not an anthropomorphic one.’

‘Monotheism ... is the belief in the existence of one god,[1] as distinguished from polytheism, the belief in more than one god, and atheism, the absence of belief in any god. Monotheism is characteristic of the Baha'i Faith, Christianity, Druzism, Judaism, Islam, Samaritanism, Sikhism[2] and Zoroastrianism.’

‘pantheism ... a doctrine that identifies God with the universe, or regards the universe as a manifestation of God.’

Would that be your Funk and Wagnall's?

To save you pointlessly expending mental energy next time, just trust little mac about Modern Spiritualism, would you?

Most of us can use dictionaries, you know, but actually understanding what you're talking about is far more meaningful in this instance....

When you've learned something about this topic that mac doesn't know then you'll be able to come and explain it all....

It continues to amaze me that some call themselves Spiritualist when they dont know what the religion etc is.

Google the fox sisters, hydesville, etc etc.

Spiritualism is a recognised religion that started on 31 March 1848, anything else isnt Spiritualism, but spirituality.

I consider myself a Spiritualist, I used to go to a Spiritualist Church on Sunday evenings. It's been a few years now since I've gone to any Church. I got interested in this after a medium came to me and said she had a message from my grandmother with some information for me, it turned out to be right on.I did'nt know this medium it was in a public place she said she felt compelled to approach me.
