I’ve got some true believers in my classes these days. It doesn’t come up often, but it does come up. Yesterday it was about fossils.
I tried to use the example of petrified wood. I don’t know if I got through, though.
First, what the hell? All of this is worse than anything the same people have been peddling for a long time. All I can concluded is that none of them have had someone die in their family (unlikely), nor have they had a situation that made thing difficult. I have an “aunt” who was my “cousin” before she was my “aunt.”
Every family has these sort of troubles.
Unless, I guess, they are perfect.
