    if i were in a room with those who now read my words,
    and i sneezed,
    how many would have God bless me???
    or would you think it merely my body's reaction to an irritant in the nasal cavity???
    and smile, and offer me a hanky???

    superstition vs science...

    i would have to say that i think superstition has the edge here...
    my personal anecdote, my mother blesses me every time i sneeze, even if it is the fifth or sixth in row...
    HA!!!
    heck, i blessed my dog just this afternoon and began to consider the silliness...
    i enlisted the help of my olde friend, and enemy, google,
    and began searching out the myriad of superstitions associated with a sneeze...
    good luck, bad luck, foretelling the future, revealing the truth, omg, so many ways humans scare themselves because the do not understand...

    please feel free to rip me a new one, i know you will...

    "science is limited and superstitions are worse"

    1. true and,
    2. i'm not so sure

    i was taught when doing science that i do not know it all,
    i never will know it all,
    i must be able to admit an error,
    keep collecting data,
    two other things i cannot remember,
    and one other thing...

    but superstitions allow us to follow a single line in the sand and have no need of deviation...

    bah,
    what do i know???
    i am merely a rookie...

    I don't like saying God bless you when someone sneezes.

    What if God doesn't want to bless them? 🀷🏻‍♂️

    It's a silly custom. May as well say "Hail Satan" every time someone farts.

    Or maybe "May the fart be with you."
