  • I don’t know that incense is a sin but if it’s too thick I start sneezing.

  • There is an actual long explanation that I intend to write a blog post to fill it in, short answer is the bible is both true but not every word on the scientific subject of creation. It was not meant to be. I was going to put off that post but because of this one I’ll write it sometime tomorrow.

  • I have definitely been in churches that sinned — greatly — in their use of incense. It’s probably one of the reasons I’m not a Catholic anymore. They don’t use it very often anymore, but when they do there are huge, rolling clouds of it. It makes the place smell like a French house of joy.

    That tweet is an outrage. I’m incensed!

    I just burst out in HOWLS of laughter as I read that last line. Thanks for the laugh, Cynthia – I needed it! : -)

  • Of course incense is a sin, but a relatively small sin. Now patchouli…? Well, there’s your major sin right there.

    (Also, the question he asked has a very simple answer. I’m sure he could have come up with it himself if his two brains cells had collided and produced a coherent thought.)

  • If it helps, I can try to answer the question the person wanted to ask…

    Adam and Eve were genetically perfect because God created them. No genetic flaws or anything like that.

    then the fall of man happened and sin entered the world.

    Adam and Eve were still physically perfect though. So they had lots of kids, Cain, Able, Seth and the others that weren’t named. As the kids paired up and started to make families of their own. And from the Bible’s point you can see the effect. How it documents Adam and the generations after him as being very long lived. Methuselah’s Genes, if you will.

    With Noah and the flood, it was back to square one in a matter of speaking. He had three sons and three daughter’s in laws.

    And they started the family process all over again..

    I think it was the Law of Moses that finally forbid inbreeding between families.. by that time, enough genetic abnormalities have developed where it was causing problems for a brother to marry a sister (And that was one sentence I never thought I would write).

    I read about it a LOOOONG time ago and that’s what the gist of what I remember about it.

    It wasn’t completely taboo at one time when Man was going forth and multiplying.

  • Jasmine’s a sin, but not sandalwood. Sage-based incense can go either way; I happen to like it.

    Also, “Incest and Peppermints” is a really good song.
