    The Frank Slide

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Slide

    Frank, Alberta is a coal mining town in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. On April 29, 1903, at 4:10 a.m., 82 million tonnes (30 million cubic meters) of limestone crashed from the summit of Turtle Mountain and covered approximately three square kilometers of the valley floor. The slide dammed the Crowsnest River and formed a small lake, covered 2km of the Canadian Pacific Railway, destroyed most of the coal mine's surface infrastructure, and buried seven houses on the outskirts of the sleeping town of Frank, as well as several rural buildings. Frank was home to approximately 600 people in 1903; of the roughly 100 individuals who lived in the path of the slide, more than 70 were killed.

    You should be able to find the news article if you type in

    the date of the slide (or a day or two after).

    There's also an article in The Globe And Mail, which I've accessed online through my library. It is dated April 30, 1903

    and it's on the front page.

    answering off the right of my head - 3 significant factors may well be: faith, a Guilt-loose experience of right and incorrect, and Reverence they could be equivalent in stability because of the fact if not it may be like a three legged stool, with one leg longer than the different. It in simple terms works extra helpful in the event that they are all in stability. top purpose: that is subjective. the purpose may well be diverse finding on the guy. this is a probability to realize religious enlightenment some opposite direction, IMO. yet you pay attention of it extra generally taking place via meditation. superb theory-scary question BTW.
