WOW #57

Brat

Nobody is totally useless, or wrong all the time. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. While they are often irritating and contradictory, a Christian Apologist recently gave me a new word. He wrote that ‘God is

FROWARD

The eyes do not see. It is the mind which truly sees, and the mind sees what it expects to see. The blogger’s usage of the word kept seeming wrong in his context. I read it three or four times, before I realized that his correctly-spelled word, which meant
willfully contrary; not easily managed
from the concept of ‘to and fro’ – this is not to-ward, it is fro-ward – the negative
was probably being used incorrectly.

I don’t know why a God-believer would describe his Deity with such an adjective. It seems almost as if he were trying to “control God” into doing, or at least meaning, something that supported his views.

Or, perhaps he was just flinging around scholarly, cultured words, in order to appear erudite. I know I do. I’ve just managed to get another whole blog-post out of a word that I don’t expect to ever use (or see) again. This is what happens when Ego runs high, and creativity runs low. I’ll do better next time – I promise!

    So often, I think that Christian apologetics think that if you can’t dazzle them with your brilliance, then you should baffle them with your bullshit. 😉😮

      Ya gotta get up pretty early to beat Shim…. ’cause he works nights, and gets home at 8 AM. Actually, after 5 weeks off, he just got called back to work, but as a forklift driver/order picker in the warehouse building, on days, instead of his preferred midnight shift at the plant.
      What about you?? Are you officially without a job, or just looking for something better? Either way, best of luck. 😀

        Officially mooching off the government as I search for a new job (restaurant closed, second option: Golf Club, still not open and even if they do, the restaurant won’t). What joy.
