Re: "Shinto" or "Shin Tao"?

Shinto or Shentao or Shin Tao by any other name....well you get. If it wasn't apparent in my post to some, Shinto does reflect the Chinese influence and is a Japanese-ization of the Chinese word, in the Chinese English translation spelling is spelled "Shentao." But I see no reason for a more accurate spelling of Shin tao to reflect the Chinese influence on "kami no michi." Shinto (the spelling) is really for us guijing types anyways. And who says in a 100 years ther' ain't gonna be a different spellin'. That does happen.
