    I can speak in tongues, tho, Darvy 😛 And that's without sticking them in your ear!

    "William Samarin has written: "When the full apparatus of linguistic science comes to bear on glossolalia, this turns out to be only a facade of language — although at times a very good one indeed. For when we comprehend what language is, we must conclude that no glossa, no matter how well constructed, is a specimen of human language, because it is neither internally organized nor systematically related to the world man perceives."

    And we think Bill is so smart for having come up with that cogent thought. Moreover, we thank him for having written it down, too.

    Even easier to type. Sorry you missed the point, but what did your post have to do with the first (mostly) incomprehensible post, in an entirely enigmatic thread?

    😀 Oh alright Freaky... 😛 Boring, boring boring, but....

    The original 'enigmatic' post (...in this Spirituality Forum) was badly garbled by haste or simple ignorance - perhaps a theme will develop here? Maybe you can contribute?

    Darvy's cheeky answer called for a translator and I offered my services tongue-in-cheekishly, suspecting that there was an opportunity for some levity here in this otherwise often promising but generally banal and literal Forum.

    "Glossolalia" is the generally misunderstood (punny, here, depending on p.o.v...) act of speaking in tongues, uttering gibberish, vocalising nonsensical sounds and glottal stops. It has religious adherents - mostly Pentecostal - so it's not completely out of place in this Spiritual Forum.

    😛 "Taking it in the ear" is a colloquial ripost referring to an act with vaguely sexual connotations that could be construed as interfering with the ability to hear clearly, thus contributing to misunderstanding gibberish.

    Your barely veiled sarcastic dismissal of Samarin's deliberate and serious attempt to understand the phenomenon of glossolalia is neither internally organized nor systematically related to the issue of "111 the end hahah"... Speak up or carry a bigger stick, Freaky 🙄

    Sorry: must have missed the parenthetical departure from the original thread. For dimwits such as me, you have to be punctiliously obvious, I'm afraid. I miss the subtle colors a lot, it seems, as I am so drawn to the black-and-white.

    I am familiar with the same.

    As above, I am familiar with this term, as well. Also, like above, I have not experienced this phenomenon. Sounds like it might hurt a little. Any words from the wise on this one?

    My veiling requires serious repair, post haste. While a dismissal did take place, it was not directed toward hapless Bill. Have you any other guesses?
    You appear to consistenly post ideas without link or relation to any surrounding posts. Again, my grasp of the subtle is challenged; it may very well be that you are a genius of counter-intuitiveness. Should this be the case, I humbly withdraw my assertions otherwise.

    Are you talking about the Rapture/Armageddon? What do you mean "the end of the world" ? Start making sense, boy.

    I guess some people might see that as a bad thing.

    Some people wouldn't notice 😉 They've been clinically brain-dead for years.
