I was thrown off by the reference to "death is all that is left for the
cult to practice," which made me think you had in mind some organization
engaged in regular or ritual killing of some sort. You know, like the Thugees.
But now that you've explained what you meant, I understand your meaning
more clearly.

DM> In any event, have you any

If you mean physical evidence, none at all.

DM> About the reality of death little doubt (and even

I'm not confused at all. You may not share my beliefs, of course, but that's
another issue. Being confused is not defined as having a different view
of the world from yourself.

DM>     Now, are we on the same page here?

Definitely so now, but possibly reading different parts.
