So if Thomas Aquinas says a capybara is a fish, that settles it we believe it.

Then all land animals are fish including us. This carries implications.

Damn, but I'm curious.

I wonder what the mystery object, conundrum, or "irrefutable" proof of our temporary friend's superstition was.

I searched for that term and got:



and being a total naif, had to search what it meant and came up with "N,N-Dimethyltryptamine is a tryptamine molecule which occurs in many plants and animals. It can be consumed as a powerful psychedelic drug and has historically been prepared by various cultures for ritual and healing purposes".

...I guess I never thought of the possibility that religious fervour could be hallucinogenically induced, so I guess I learned something today about a new theory about the sources of belief. Thank you, thread.

Perhaps the OP felt like a fish out of water.
