I'm sorry what did you just say?

to the one that i was discussing some things with. Wow you are very closed minded. forget the past of some thing and only look at it through modern times? i can't for get the past no mater if it happened a hundred years ago or 6 thousand years ago. oh well, i see it from a way diffrent point of veiw.

If this was directed at me... well, you don't really know me well enough to know if I'm closed minded, but I'm sorry you have that idea.

My perspective is, language evolves -- so while a word may have a particular origin, most people (not saying everyone, clearly you're different) focus on the meaning that is closest to their way of living, which is usually rooted in today's meaning(s). Those may be quite different from the past meaning. If one image that is conjured by most people (and I understand I may be mistaken about what most people would think, but I do think you're unusual in this way -- not that it's a bad thing), then I don't see that referring to the origins produces a valid argument.

That's all I meant.

i was wondering, did you read my blog to see a little more about me (as in who the heck was replying to you) or did some point out this post and thought it was towards you. Just a little curious...

The former. I was thinking about what you said, and the information was interesting, so I wondered more about who you are and followed the bouncing ball... Your post did sound like it could have been directed at me -- I didn't want to be quite so self-centered to assume it had to be, but if it was, I felt like I needed to try to explain my perspective a little better, because I clearly didn't do so in Ben's journal!

sorry some times i am cryptic with my post because i don't want to bother people with my out side world. (as in my work world, never that much fun) I can see where you could see that it was directed to you. sorry about that, my bad...

No need to say you're sorry, it's YOUR journal. :)
