One of the typically linguistic phobias is iphobia, the fear of spelling
i the standard way, that is, only capitalizing it at the beginning
of a sentence or when all letters are being capitalized.
People suffering from iphobia may even spell it "Iphobia" in the middle of
Some wrongly claim that iphobia is the fear of short words, the opposite
of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, the fear of long words (which
people having that fear abbreviate to just sesquipedaliophobia).
But the fear of short words is called "phobia".

'IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ...' (2)
'If you don't believe in God/Allah, He won't help you or may even punish
It is almost true, except that He is not he but
they, the ones who want you to believe in God/Allah.
'IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ...' (1)
'If you don't believe in Father Christmas, he won't give you presents'.
It is almost true, except that he is not he but
they, the ones who want you to believe in Father Christmas.

FROM THE ONE TO THE OTHER
Russia moved from the orthodox-communist dictatorship of the proletariat
to the orthodox-Christianist dictatorship of the reactionaries.
And the overlap between proletarians and reactionaries was big
enough to make it possible.

THE END OF A CALENDAR THAT OF THE WORLD?
Some people claimed that the end of the Maya calendar on the last day of
the 67th year after the Second World War would mean the end of the world.
(You never can tell whether the folks caliming such a thing really
believe in such nonsense themselves.)
Of course, it was not.
fear that by the time that the Gregorian-Christianist calendar will
be dethroned as a so-called 'Common Era' calendar, we will see the same
kind of claim reemerging among an even larger number of people: 'the end
of the Christian calendar will mean the end of the world'.
The big difference is, however, that the Mayas who designed their
calendar believed in cycles and that, as far as i know, they would not
want the world to end in order to make a myth come true.
Nor did they have the power to do so.

FAIR WORDS MAKE LANGUAGE ALLITERATE
Fair words make fools fain is not really a pretty proverb.
Better examples are: Fair words make fools willing (which is also
the meaning of the archaic adjective fain here),
Fair words make flocks worship,
Fewer words make falsehoods wither and
Free sex makes fools suffer.

VEILS FOR WOMEN, DIAPERS FOR GOATS
The idea that women must wear veils is the product of a culture with a
pathological view of erotic feelings and expressions, a culture which can
make sexual tensions run so high that cock-eyed legalists of religious law
not only force female humans to be veiled but also female goats to be
(And in addition a culture in which the same zealots cannot cope with any
arrangement of vegetables which might be 'suggestive', leading from the
murder of shepherds who do not diaper their goats to the murder of grocers
who 'misarrange' their vegetables.)
CHIMPANZEE AND BONOBO RELIGIONS
The Abraham religions are chimpanzee religions, occasionally with a touch
of bonobo, as in some descriptions of the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
