Snacking on Religious Studies


I just finished my last religious studies reading. Out of all the textbooks, tutorial manuals and lab books this past year, this has to be my favourite sentence:

“The relationship of the daughter to the father is that of filiation.”

Filiation? That’s a word?


To me, ‘Filiation’ sounds like a way to describe how full you are. Like after a handful of macadamia nuts, you’re ‘filiated.’ Heck, when someone isn’t cooperating during interrogation, why bother pulling fingernails- just ‘filiate’ them. With some macadamia nuts.

They’ll tell everything.
