Yeah...in the absence of an explaination driven by Logic and Science....a VACUUM is created that will fill itself with all sorts of explainations.
Personally I LOVE telling people who are OVERLY Religious to the point of Blind Faith...."Hey...do you know why we call Easter...Easter and why this
supposed Religious Holiday is represented by Bunnies, Chicks, Eggs, Baskets filled with Green Grass and Tulips, Daphodils and other such Flowers?"
Such people will look at me and say..."You know...I don't know. Why?"
I reply..."Because it's not Easter...it's the Pagan Spring Solstace Fertility Holiday known as the Celebration of ESTER. Thus the wildly breeding
Bunnies...Eggs and New Born Chicks that were placed in a a Green Grass filled Basket along with other foods such as freshly slaughtered Spring Lamb
I then get the wide eyed response...."no...No...NO WAY!" LOL!
