[#] Who are the Curious?

Main Entry: cu·ri·ous
Pronunciation: 'kyur-E-&s
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French curios, from Latin curiosus careful, inquisitive, from cura cure
1 a archaic : made carefully b obsolete : ABSTRUSE c archaic : precisely accurate
2 a : marked by desire to investigate and learn b : marked by inquisitive interest in others' concerns : NOSY
3 : exciting attention as strange, novel, or unexpected : ODD

These are the curious -- not the inquisitive, but the ones who are strange, novel, or unexpected.

It's unexplored country, I think. It's a culture not ever touched by the Gospel. It's like Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, except that it is also like Hitchikers' Guide to the Galaxy.

I'm sorry . . . I'm afraid I don't see where you're going with this post.

Defining terms. That's all.

I have responded to your last comment on my blog.

One more thing I would like to add, I strongly agree that defining terms is good, but my objective is not to teach.

I am simply offering a few dear friends a window into my soul as I seek the righteousness God created me to live in. Defining terms is not important for that because if there is an ambiguity someone is free to ask and challenge me, as you have done, and as one of my links does every Monday evening.

Sooo... if I wanted to market trinkets based on this would I label them "Brining Kurios to the Curious?" Did I come even close to transliterating that word correctly? :)

Looking forward to more posts.
