Re: good friday not so good

It's all more tradition than historical fact anyway so why not commemorate it for what it is and enjoy it for what we have made of it.

Re: good friday not so good

Good Friday is the day my saviour bore the sins of the world for those that choose to follow him.
That is highly significant!!!
It is not about the bunny.

Why is the rabbit used as a symbol at easter?

Gotta agree there, more summer holidays would be preferred. Maybe I will create a religion that has nothing but summer holidays.

I didn't know it was hyped holiday at all. It is a day some Christians have an extra service on in recognition. Next year I want some chocolate palms for Palm Sunday though. That would make Good Friday mighty good.

If you will notice "Good Friday" occurs in early Spring or on the verge of a new "Spring" season. This is the time when all the plants, trees, birds and other creatures awake after a long sleep or dorminacy of the Winter - Winter is like death, but everything including humans are supressed. In Spring there is regenration of all flora and fauna.
The Rabbit is a symbol of fertility, fecundity, new beginings, resurrection, new life.
It actually works out in reality - get a pair of Rabbits of opposite gender and in a year you will have proably over twenty or more. The folliwng year you will have over a hundred...

Yep rabbits are a fertility symbol as are eggs.

I was actually wondering if Bethelight knew what he/she were talking about.

Not sure she did... lots of symbology used in the religions - not just Christianity. Symbolism is a powerful tool. It is like a memory jogger, such as a "catch phrase" might be to invoke information to the fore of the mind.
As for the Egg - correct. Reminds me of the debate: "what came first; Chicken or Egg"? I am partial to the idea of the Chicken first, as there could be no Egg present without the Chikcen "laying" it. The Chicken is a species of Fowl that has genetically evolved. Interesting creature when you really examine it. There are scale like marking on the skin. It has Feathers which seem to be an alteration of scales and it has a beak and claws. Seems like it evolved from the ancient reptillian creatures - all birds for that matter.

Ah but dinosaurs laid eggs and from what I understand birds evolved from some species of dinosaurs so I believe then, the egg came first. lol

Re: good friday not so good

I figured you would do that...... But you have got to do better with your deductive logic than to try to put that one over on me. Perhaps a runted Petrodactyl, butr a Dinosaur is a sort of qunatum lizard leap...
However... that is a far cry from demonstrating that the Egg cam first!:music:

Perhaps that is where "Orphan Annie" got the expression: "leaping lizards Daddy Warbucks!".

It stands to reason that even if birds did not evolve from dinosaurs, it is a fact that dinosaurs laid eggs and egg laying reptiles were in existence long before chickens thus the egg came first.

Hmmmm... appears that we are digressibng as in devolving - so now we are back to Dinosaurs pooping Eggs. If a Dinosaur had to regenrate by laying eggs then where did the Dinosaur come from. Don't pull that "from and Egg" stuff... Something/s has to lay Eggs.... - Eggs don't just happen!:music::c razy1::wave:

Re: good friday not so good

an Egg is an Embryo of another creature. It takes two of same creatures of opposite gender to create and egg. How can the Egg be first? It cannot create itself!

But the question was what came first the chicken or the egg not the dinosaur or the egg and I believe I gave you a very good answer. lol
