Ezola Foster.

I think that Ralph Nader was a much better choice as a third-party candidate in the American 2000 election (let's remeber that not everyone around the world had the opportunity to vote, there). Who was Ralph Nader's running mate?

This site says it is the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior.

In short does that mean it's being born with some sort of knowledge?

No, I think it means having a knowledge of transcendental things (which could be the Divine, for example) that is arrived at through introspection and intuition. So it isn't a knowledge where you would say "I have this knowledge because I've seen such and such things and have reasoned logically about them", but rather "I feel such and such, and so I have this knowledge".
http://www.m-w.com says gnosis in Greek means knowledge. Here is the definition of gnosis:

quote:
esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth held by the ancient Gnostics to be essential to salvation.

and of esoteric :

quote:
designed for or understood by the specially initiated alone.

OK, so that's slightly different that the definition at gnosis.org that you sited, Daydreamer, but it sheds some light on the concept.

I hope I'm correct in my re-explanation, though.

Anyway, KittenGoddess, how do you get that little "registered" sign in posts?

You know, I was just talking to someone about Henry's wives the other day...we thought we had a reasonably accurate list but weren't certain. Here are my guesses, in no real order:

1. Anne Boleyn, who was guillotined
2. Catherine of Aragon, who he divorced
3. Anne of Cleaves (?), who he divorced
4. Catherine Howard (last name?), who was guillotined
5. Jane Seymour, (I don't know what the heck happened to her...did she die naturally or was she killed?)
6. Catherine Parr, who survived.

(My guess is that ol' Henry had a hankering for girls named Catherine. )

What are the two most populous provinces in Canada?

Thanks! I couldn't remember em all for the life of me. Jane Seymour was Edward's mum. She died of hypothermia, because Henry forced her to go the outdoor baptism sick. She was the only one to pop out a little boy.

As for the kraft consuming nationality? Poor, starving college kids! (I have not a clue.)

Those are all correct, but out of order.

The correct order is:

1. Catherine of Aragon
2. Anne Boleyn
3. Jane Seymour
4. Anne of Cleaves
5. Catherine Howard
6. Catherine Parr

Kraft Dinner is the name of Kraft brand macaroni and cheese in Canada. I don't think it has that name anywhere else - so we win by default.

Population-wise, what's the largest city in South America?
