Holy Magic Hair Update
Alright, I won't be able to post today because of a final due tonight. (maybe tomorrow?)
But in the meantime, I wanted to ring up something i just found about....Holy Magic Hair (not again!)
One of the endearing points of HMH advocates is that the idea that there is power in uncut hair can be verified in the wicca religion where the witches believe there is power in uncut hair.
Such proof can be seen in the message that is pro-HMH that I posted under the HMH post....
Another HMH advocate posted in her blog:
Did you know that witches won't cut their hair because they try to tap into the power promised to us in 1Cor 11? Do you know why Indians used to scalp their enemies? Do you know why Nuns and Buddhist monks shave their hair? What does tar and feathering mean? Do you know who it was that first starting the hair cutting trend? What date was that? What about the hippie movement?
What significance is there when hair is found at the scene of a crime?
Daniel Alicea, the man who operates holymagichair.com, found in his research that...
"Most wiccan witches agree that there is no added or extra power in uncut hair while recognizing it is used in ritual magic...but so is eye newt, toe of frog...wool of bat and tongue of dog."
He even quotes one wiccan saying "Hair does not give you extra power and you don't lose power if it's cut."
There is a whole forum that Alicea found that sees wiccans discussing this exact topic and the conversation is eerily reminiscent at points to how we discuss HMH, but as not to offend with this matter, I won't post the link (since it was a Wiccan site).
NOTE: I am not looking for a big conversation on this one guys. I just felt the information was too relevant not to post.
