The grammar nazi in me is horrified.

 Silly christian fundamentalist from yesterday has been spreading this lie:
"In the King James Bible, many words end in "ETH". The meaning of putting "ETH" on the end of a word,
is translating it to mean 'Over and over and over again. Not once, not twice, but many times over'."


Seriously now? Seriously?!
When asked by someone where she got this info from, since the person rightly thought it was purely an archaic verb ending... she says that her son told her & he apparently studies Greek meanings in bible study and reads the bible-internet. So, OBVIOUSLY, that makes him some kind of expert on this.
  It took a minute of googlefu to confirm it is just a old third person singular ending . I informed the questioner.

 This is why we can't have nice things.


[yes, I will be twisting my butthurt anger back to just self-loathing soon.
possibly even turning it into a sef-improvement drive...]

It scares me that there are people who are *this* ignorant in the world, and breeding replicas of themselves.
