Blasphemy's Origin

What constitute’s blasphemy, it’s true, depends upon which superstition reigns in your neighborhood, and to which sect the lawmaker’s give their regard.

It is belief derived from hearsay, gossip and handed-down tales from people frightened by ignorance to explain phenomena about which they know nothing, and then passed on by people who should know better. Blasphemy occurs when you offend them by saying so.
