Oh wow...[edit]

Anybody ever hear or read about this before? It seems that long ago, before the little, fishy symbol was adopted by the fledgling Christian Cult, it meant something ENTIRELY different. From the above link: "The pre-Christian history of the fish symbol: The fish symbol has been used for millennia worldwide as a religious symbol associated with the Pagan Great Mother Goddess. It is the outline of her vulva. The fish symbol was often drawn by overlapping two very thin crescent moons. One represented the crescent shortly before the new moon; the other shortly after, when the moon is just visible. The Moon is the heavenly body that has long been associated with the Goddess, just as the sun is a symbol of the God." I wonder how many owners of Ichthys bumper stickered cars know about the symbol's other, older meaning? Further reading: 1 and 2. I learned about this by reading an article on Cracked.com. I'll never be able to look at those daft stickers in the same light ever again... --Stickie 86.31.11.119 (talk) 10:55, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
