SNAVETHINK FOR THE DAY

When I hear the phrase "What's in a name?" I usually think about how unimaginative humans seem to be.

Two examples: Yes, we have a satellite orbiting our planet, and it is a moon by definition. So did we come up with a special name for it? Yes. "The Moon". Well, DUH!!!

And there is something that lots of people worship in the world today, and while it is a god to them, do they give this god of theirs a special name? Of course they do! They call it (drum roll, please): "God"!! People, where did the Muse run off to?

You wanna know? I think the Muse is permanently out to lunch.

Sure, this is probably just my misanthropic side showing through, but hey... with all these powerful brain cells we humans supposedly have, couldn't we show just a little more imagination?

I agree, we could have called the Moon something else. And the earth also. But if you believe there is only one god, what else would you call it?
