Is there a follicle of truth to the story of Samson's hair? Long hair has hidden powers?

Science of the Spirit



I came across this interesting story which outlines the following:


Hair is an extension of the nervous system, it can be correctly seen as exteriorized nerves, a type of highly evolved 'feelers' or 'antennae' that transmit vast amounts of important information to the brain stem, the limbic system, and the neocortex.

The Truth About Hair and Why Indians Would Keep Their Hair Long

The story stems from Indians and Soldiers, but if you take the context out of the box, you can almost picture why women are more emotionally susceptible than men.

Dear Glargod,

Don't know the answer to your question; but, I know the answer to the question of Samson. It had nothing to do with his hair, he had made a promise to God that he would not ever drink or cut his hair, that is why he had strength. He did not lose his strength because his hair was cut, he lost it because he did not keep his promise.

This isn't science.

This is pretty much the exact opposite of science.

Science is all about what you can prove in experiment, and according to your own source, the very site that hosts the story makes no scientific claim and implies it could be just a completely made up story for all they know:


SOTT can't confirm this story or the research it suggests took place
Move it to another forum like skunk works, until you find the research. When you find the scientific research, then move it back to the science forum.

Not only is there another thread on ATS on the same subject, there is also a post by me on that thread about the Samson story.

I think you will find it interesting. Have a look.

Star for the title of your thread. Not sure if others caught on to the "follicle" piece, but thats good humor.

I will say I had short hair for the majority of my life and four the last 4 years of my life I have grown dreads out. Not some done in a hair shop dreads. I mean some Natty boyz that decided their own paths. I can also tell you this I was very much sensitive to the more pyschic side of life and in the past 4 years it has grown exponetially.

I would def believe there is a hair of truth in long hair and the correlation of pyschic abilities.

I agree it IS interesting, but I do recall this being a thread topic almost a year ago as well. And now twice, recently. Maybe it's a new, seasonal thing? Still, interesting nonetheless.

I quite agree. You might as well drop a Bible in nitric acid. The effect would be about the same.

It’s about sex, not strength, silly.
