  • Yes, I know how they got their name. Shakers got their name from the way the worship. It is interesting but I'm not sure what I am supposed to care about?

  • Because they used to dance and "shake" all over the place. I think it was a way for them to relief sexual tension because they did not belief in having any sex. I think they all adopted a lot of kids to keep the religion going. I'm not sure how much of this is practiced today.......
