“A warm welcome to Zingcreed, the unique blog that says ‘Jesus YES; God NO!’ To find out why, read a few of my Posts, then send me your comment!” Peter Turner, M.A., M.Sc.
Here’s an amusing ‘blast from the past’ that’s not to be sneezed at!
If you sneeze in a room full of people, there will be an instant chorus of ‘Bless yous’, but there may be no one in the room who is aware that the practice may have arisen from a medieval fear that when you sneeze, your soul can be thrown out of your body, making you vulnerable to being taken over by devils and demons.
The truly bizarre aspects of our cultural practices and beliefs vanish with our daily exposure to them. the surreal becomes normal and unremarkable.
