More on the Sacred

I have been trying to lay down an argument for the use and applicability of the word "sacred". Two posts at Reality Base can be found here and here.

There is an ongoing discussion about how words change and adapt in meaning. One point I think that has to be remembered is that if one wants to go in a new direction eggs get broken to make omelets. Historically words gain new meaning, or expanded meanings through just this process.

Posts at Discover and Tricycle

Two posts I have done at other locations for those interested

Discover/Reality Base
This was on Darwins birthday (who could resist?)

Tricycle The role of Buddhism in the science and religion debate

Both generated some interesting and thoughtful commentary.
