Gee, seems to me I asked a question about Celtic burial practices sometime
ago, regarding feeding the dead and if any one know what if any belief they
had in the afterlife. These types of beliefs do show up in archaeological
excavations, right? I got ignored! Pouting but not stomping my feet!
Doubting everything and believing everything are two equally convenient
solutions that both save one from thinking.
The more decadent a culture gets, the more they have a need for what they
don't have at all, which is innocence, so you end up with kiddie porn and a
perverse obsession with youth.
