New religions (are closer than you think)

April 25, 2009

Are unusual religious sects just natural to this area or does this happen everywhere…

This is as the car drives (according to Google Maps), not as the crow flies.

The Amish:
Kalona, Iowa: 89.2 miles; 1 hour, 35 minutes.

The Mormons:
Nauvoo, Illinois: 99.5 miles; 2 hours, 8 minutes.

The Pietists:
Bishop Hill, Illinois: 47.5 miles; 1 hour, 8 minutes.

Transcendental Meditation(alists?)>
Fairfield, Iowa (which gets you to Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa): 109 miles; 2 hours, 17 minutes.

Or maybe Iowa/Illinois is just a great place to be different (if you are not a Mormon).
