Not knowing alternatives is dangerous in professions where we expect expertise.Would you trust a dentist who only fixes teeth by pulling them because he/she does not know what else to do?
Avoid misinformation and disinformation published after 1900.Other Spiritual Christian (non-Orthodox, folk Protestant, sectarian) groups with origins in Old Russia that resettled in North America (Adventisty, Baptisti, Dukhobortsy,** Evangeliki, Pyatidesyatniki, Shalaputi, Subbotniki, Svobodniki, etc.) are not the focus of this taxonomy, though they were all often called malakan, or Molokan in error.Old Orthodox faiths (Old Ritualists, staroobryadtsy, Old Believers, staroverie) are raskolniki, not Spiritual Christians, and often confused with malakan.What about a doctor who diagnoses every ailment the same and always prescribes one remedy?But you trust the religious elders, journalists and professors who only know one term and definition for ....Definitions vary over time, place, and user (when, where, what/who).

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.
