    Interesting exercise

    I would hope that this is non-treated grass, and naturally organic.
    Otherwise, this hypnotic suggestive practice seen here could be a form of liable against this organization... unless they signed waivers.

    But on the other hand, I often theorized how "Jesus" fed the "thousands" with merely 2 fish and 5 loaves.

    Matthew 14:
    16 But Jesus said to them, They have no need to go away: give ye them to eat.

    17 Then said they unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes.

    18 And he said, Bring them hither to me.

    19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

    20 And they did all eat, and were sufficed, and they took up of the fragments that remained, twelve baskets full.

    21 And they that had eaten, were about five thousand men, beside women and little children.


    And not just that, they had "LEFT-OVERS"!

    12 baskets of food remained after the "5 thousand" were "sufficed".
    My theory has ranged from the simple to the extravagant, but one was the idea of psycho-hypnosis (Djed Minde Trice)

    Respect

    While I have NO idea of the why behind the grass-eating :huh: watching the video reminded me of the Irish during the potato famine. One British traveler (the CAUSE of the mass starvation) upon traveling the Irish countryside, remarked at all the people on the road and byways whose faces around the "mouth" were green. He was informed that grass was all the people had to eat.

    Is the issue them eating the grass, or them obeying an "unseen force"?

    Just curious

    Now I'm curious to read how you would theorize this, if you will:

    Pastor collapses, dies, after admitting adultery
    WPVI – Philadelphia0:30 mins

    Bishop Bobby Davis suffered a fatal heart attack while confessing an extramarital affair to his church congregation.

    Probably would be better to start a new thread for that.
    Not sure how that ties in to this one.

    Outside of being weird, it doesn't exactly tie in. You can answer, not answer or start a new Thread, either way I'm good.
