Peter Fotis Kapnistos: In medieval traditions, the Black Mass was first known through parodies, called Feasts of Asses, to ridicule a custom of religious festivities with a reverse reading of biblical scriptures (spoken, not spelled). According to the Old and Middle English articulations of the Bible, “Jesus Christ” pronounced backwards is:  Ts’ierk sah-syge. Psychologists have observed that elements of reverse speech may sometimes become subconscious expressions. The reverse of Jesus Christ (and other accepted names) may somehow affect individuals, whether they understand it or not.

What??  :blink:

I'm so lost... I thought this was about words/names being used backwards, but then it ended up about food and somehow vegetarianism.  And I still don't understand the point, there is no thesis.  It's random mish mash slapped together.  I'm not sure what I read but now, I know that Hitler ate sausage.

I agree.  I have no idea what the point of the article is.

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along.  Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?

I'm glad you agree, I read it three times thinking I must have missed something but, no, it's just badly written.

Brain says, 'Noooo. Does not compute. System overload.'

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Agreed. No disrespect to the author, but the article is so disconnected I had to stop reading for the sake of my own sanity,
