Neil deGrasse Tyson came out swinging when evangelical types complained that the TV show, Cosmos, which presents the evolution-based theory of how the universe came into being, ought have a few scenes explaining "an alternative theory," creationism. DeGrasse had a brilliant retort: “You don’t talk about the spherical Earth with NASA, and then say let’s give equal time to the flat Earthers."
Felaine, I didn't know that hair does not absorb water, but drying jebus' feet with her hair always seemed overboard to me. Like she was a super worshiper and brown-noser. It seemed very impractical unless she had extremely long hair.
She had magic hair.
Well that explains it then! Hahaha!
I had hair down to my knees for years, but it never dried anything.....no magic in mine, I guess.
Made/Maid of Cotton, perhaps?
More like dried out straw....but definitely not absorbent....hahaha!
I was told the morons were supposed to be a family, therefore the brother/sister thing. I found that when someone called me sister after being babtyzd at age 9, I didn't like it. Seeds of my doubts were already sown before that time as well & nothing stopped the progression.
I didn't care for the brother/sister labels either. I don't think I ever used them. Even after quitting the church and having my name taken off their records, I had a couple of people call me brother. Weird.
Even the word ''brother'' in front of Richard's name on here bothers me a little.....& at the time, it alone made me hesitate about joining AN.
Have you ever told him about your reaction? I wonder if he knows? Surely he would like to receive feedback.
That's because of his religious background, Patricia. Just Google Richard Haynes and read all about it.
I have to admit, I paused at that, too.
No Joan, I just figure my reaction is my own issue, & never thought of saying anything.
On the other hand, lots of us have religious backgrounds, & want to shed all association with any of the words. Non-relative brother/sister terms always make me think moronism, or cult-ism.
