Re: Spirit Be Damned.
That's nice. But I have no interest in further wasting my time with you.

Love your enemies!

Re: Spirit Be Damned.
Nonsense. And you know it.

Splitting hairs may be your specialty.

But that doesn't make you good at it.

A sense of wonder ... and "that's curious ..."
If you folks have finished the masochistic equine flagellation ...

To me it comes down to inspiring a "that's curious" moment, with "now how did THAT happen" sense of wonder.

Initial explanations give way to more informed explanations as we learn how things work, but I would hope that the sense of wonder never dies.

Enjoy

... inspiring a "that's curious" moment, with "now how did THAT happen" sense of wonder.

This is something with which I can wholeheartedly agree. A sense of wonder, even a spiritual sense of awe, is a most wonderful experience. And it has nothing to do with meanings of impending doom, manipulating superstitions or excuses for taking undue advantage.

Re: Spirit Be Damned.
I'm moving nothing. My original statement was:

There's nothing wrong with seeing more in a lunar eclipse than a 'neat light show'.

And I stand by that statement.

Finding meaning in the mundane is a basic part of being human, and there is nothing wrong about finding meaning in anything and everything at all.

However, it is preferable that the meanings we attach to things should be true rather than false.
