Yes that would be a good example of a coincidence. It's also a coincidence that the french word for fish \"poissons\" is just one letter different from \"Poisions\". A bit like the way you spell coincidence. Wow it's almost like there are coincidences all over the place if you look for them. Spooky.

Memo to myself. Don't make spelling mistakes when making fun of somebody else's spelling mistakes. DOH!

AND, isn't it quite a coicidence that the Jesus fish could also have been used as a symbol for the vagina by pagans.

Too bad about all that pesky mercury.

Actually, mercury-tainted fish DOES make a wonderful symbol of fundyism. What a great coincidence!

Fish'n'chips every night then

Is it a coincidence that the fattest people in the world reside in the Bible Belt?

I say the way "God" reads backwards could be included here.
3/22/2008 1:00:35 PM
...Yes. It is quite the coincidence. What the hell does this prove, exactly?

Yea, I was going to mention mercury content as well, not to mention dwindling fish populations.
I think the symbol more arises from the fishes and loaves thing. I think they should be using a loaf instead since when communion is given, the bread symbolizes Jesus' flesh (the Jeez-it).
Plus it seems that most of the people Jesus hung out with in the bible were fishermen, not a whole lot to eat in the desert I imagine, maybe some goats or something.

Can I interest you in some home prepared fugu?

I thought it was Ron Jeremy who had the most healthy meat on earth.
6/18/2008 3:49:10 PM
Yes, it is.
11/13/2009 10:07:36 AM
The official explanation is that it was Peter´s job as a fishermen the reason for that. Otherwise, don´t pull it very much, because they forbid seafood, which is healthier, and the lamb............well, better not to talk about its "nutricious" qualities.

Fish has mercury in it.
Bison is healthier.
Does that mean you should wear little bison pendants?

The fish is also a symbol of foolishness, as used in several cultures to poke fun of suckers on All Fools' Day. Fundies put one on the back of their own car!
also @ David D.G.

Heh heh heh - you said "taint" heh heh

pagan vagina. heh heh heh.

Actually it represents pisces from astrology. As I understand it, and I don't very well, pisces are usually "easily deceived" either by themselves or others.

Actually, it's a clever little anagram.
the greek word for fish (transliterated because I'm too lazy to get it in symbols) is ICThUS
Theu (of God)
Uios (Son, refering to previous)
The "healthy" bit is not correct, and would probably have been a coincidence back when it was true.

That and the historical Jesus did know a lot of fishermen.

The fact that fish have virtually no brains could be significant, too.
