>> You'd prefer people were converted on the basis of whimsy?
Intriguin' idea for a conculture's religion. ::nudges Yoon & Ms. Fuzzybluemonkeys - conlangers with hell-a-whimsy:: Maybe a religion that doesn't take itself at all seriously cuz it's Higher Powers are all Trickster Gods and these "trouble-makin'" Gods make up ad hoc Committees & Sub-Committees according to whimsy, impulse and the general principles of Creative Chaos & Mischievious Mayhem. Perhaps all the Trickster Gods are just aspects of One Chaotic God-Reality? "God-as-Multiple-Personality-Disorder" *gigglagoogolbyte* Makes _sense_ to me... sorta OT: A few years ago, I had a friend who called himself "Pox" ... he had MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder). He would leave Post-It notes to his other very distinct selves, i.e. "Jerri, wash YOUR damn dishes & pots ASAP b4 they turn into science fair project material. Love, Pox"; "Hey Luther, Jacinda called & wants her CDs back, but she doesn't want to see you, wants to see Pox. Tot."; "Pox, call your Mom. Jerry"; "Pox, I am not talking to you, you ______head!!!! Rex" etc.. In a note I wrote, I joked that I hoped they had stock in the Post-It company cuz his apartment was literally decorated with all the different coloured Post-Its (each personality had it's own colour after 2 fought over the colour light purple). Pox wasn't exactly amused. Tot thought it was funny in an "existentially absurdist way." Jerri & Luther furthered their demand that they get a computer system. Rex retorted that they couldn't get a computer cuz they couldn't keep a job long enough to save up that kinda money (Pox had gotten fired from a toy store for making "indecent tableaus" out of Barbie Dolls, Beanie Monkeys, G. I. Joes, etc.. Tot is to blame according to Rex.). I think Pox got hospitalized (or jailed) and then I lost track of him (I had my own problems as well). czHANg, grateful recovering "sick puppy" "It would be ironic if the answer to Babel were pidgin and not Pentecost." - George Steiner, _After Babel: Aspects of Language & Translation_
