Of course they claimed it as their own. It was easier to convert the "bad ones" by making the names of important days familiar.

but than what pagan culture did it originate from? It would have to be relativily recent if there are no known written languages from ancient cultures, aside from the middle east...and of course the egyptians...

I don't remember where I found it Jordy - but I will re-research it. I know it was rather specific, so I am sure I can find it (when I get the time). I'll have to retrace my steps.

Damn, wb, how much clearer does it have to be?

It originated from a Hebrew word. Hebrew. As in, it has its origins in the middle east, and is a part of Judaism, therefore it logically follows that it became a part of the Christian religion, as Christianity is derived from Judaism. This is not a case of Christians adopting terms from non-Christian Europeans in order to more easily convert them...we're talking linguistics here, not religion.

Since I like you a lot, I will not get into a pissing contest with you about a word and I will drop the subject right now, you are very skilled at argueing and I do not have the facts I want at my fingertips.

Umm, I know this was asked a longgg time ago but I thought what the hell, I would answer it. I am going through my old logs and stumbled across this thread and am really sorry I dropped off it now. Anyway, I havent read through all the thread as of yet so if anyone answered why the athame handle should be black heres the answer as far as I know: The entire athame, not just the handle, should be black. But as far as I know just having the handle black isnt gonna hurt ya in anyway. As for WHY it has to be black it is because black refers to power, wisdom, and the FIFTH ELEMENT (No not that weird Sci Fi Movie.). No actually the fifth element is spirit, or akasha (again, disregard movies....Stupid "Queen of the Damned" movie) . Okay thats it.......oh and as for RHP and LHP........why do we have to follow a "path"? Let the chaos rule man!

It would probably be easier for you to backtrack and read the posts regarding it rather than me trying to wrack my brain for the specific details of a conversation that took place over two years ago...
