  Thanks for your reply and comments. I never used the term "Orthodox" in my 
reply and also not the term "Orthodox Organization." You have used the term. I 
simply put forward the "dominant" religion viz others. It can loosely be seen 
as a timeline of concatenated appearances of individuals and groups holding 
affinity to ideas and concepts that are at variance to previous individuals and 
groups even when there is a father to son type of transmittal. It involves 
the idea of perfect duplication of a communication from person A to person B. 
This is usually not the case. All Cretans are liars and all Humans are imperfect 
it seems. You may have for all I know a concept of "Orthodox Corporations" 
which I have not been exposed too as yet, and if there is such a case I wonder 
what the view of such an Orthodox Corporation might have of unincorporated 
individual or groups that engage in competitive activity.

  I don't possess a final position on "Origination" of Orthodoxy per se in 
the form you propose. It seems that Primary religion appear sometimes almost as 
if they were manufactured in a new moment of time but have the character of 
having made use of predecessors contents, Islam is one example. Christianity is 
another. Judaism also. They arrive at some agreed upon place in time by the 
actions of literary productions one piece at a time until there are sufficient 
elements to create contestations of veracity by affinitized groups based upon 
their aggretized affinities and attraction of mutual gathering whereupon a 
demand for a Canon of Orthodoxy surfaces and is acted upon presenting a new basis 
of group dynamic and effecting an evolution of social significance.
