    Why is it that the only people that seem to celebrate Saint Patricks day are ones that go out and get drunk?

    Is if fair to say that those of faith don't celebrate it or are they the ones going out and getting drunk?

    its also my fathers birthday, he had a few wines I reckon, a lapsed catholic, 70 years going round the sun, no mean feat! Its much bigger in Ireland and the States than it is here, no one celebrates it here, not the faithful or the faithless.

    He reads the watchtower and awake magazines although he can be a little argumentative of their portrayal of historical Biblical characters, Eve is usually portrayed as a super model and Adam with a finely trimmed beard!

    Never mind that, what about the belly buttons? Does the watchtower believe Adam and Eve had them or not?

    Yes. I believe it was from the belly that God opened up the flesh of Adam to take a rib to make Eve. The place where they were separated is the belly botton.

    And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

    And Adam said:

    “This is now bone of my bones
    And flesh of my flesh;
    She shall be called Woman,
    Because she was taken out of Man.”

    Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

    And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

    The only purported genius you might be near would by your son. You can forget genius status.
