@George,
Thans Geo for that latter term, it's not everyday……..

Doesn't the former lean to pantheism

@dalehileman,
It is more likely to lead to Unitarian/Universalist principles which ain't all that far removed from pantheism, come to think of it.

the Latin word for "bread" is "panem" as in "panem et circenses"--"bread and circuses", the games the emperors put on to enthrall the masses so they wouldn't think of rebellion. (This evolved into modern Spanish "pan"="bread)., so logically a "pantheist" would be someone who thinks that bread is god, or god is bread (as survives today in Communion where the bread you eat is literally your god).

Personally I think that a freshly baked sourdough loaf or a crispy French baguette still warm from the oven, slathered with lots and lots of butter, are far more godly than your average supermarket loaf.

And of course if you are a pantheist, because bread is associated with the huge emotional pig-outs of the panem et circenses, you get to be as hedonistic as you want. Indeed, it is expected of you. Up pantheism.

@MontereyJack,
pan=all, every as in pantheon, a temple dedicated to all the gods.

@MontereyJack,
Monterey, I tend to agree with you anyway, but in this case I'm really on your team.

I'm particularly promoting myself as a hopeful goddess of no knead bread, as devised and recipied (spellcheck doesn't like it with or without an i) by others. That way I could work myself into a roll as a chubby cherub. Ok, ok, as a bun.

Question: are all cherubs male?
