Calling yourself a name, doesnt make you legitamate.

Taxonomies, are classifications, and to be classified as something you have to show features.
If you call yourself a Christian...then there are taxonomical references you can use to make reasonably certain.
Adolf Hilter claimed to be a Roman Catholic, but wanted to wipe out GODs chosen people...ergo..Pope Pius claimed to be Christian and supported the Nazi exterminations...Neither were Christian...but both would claim to be.
