Strange Humans

My friend Patrick Thompson asked “What is a nudist and is it the same thing as being a naturist?”
I like my friend Boyd Allen‘s response the best.
“The real question is: Are we naked? I am created in the image and likeness of God, so God says. “Let us make man in our image and our likeness”…and he did. WE call it “naked”, God didn’t. So are we nudists? Are we Naturists? Or are we “Man” (meaning “mankind or human, not male specific), and we show how we are created in God’s image and likeness by not covering it up? Maybe, instead of calling us “nudists” or “naturists”, we should call humanity “clothists” and let us be what we really are, human beings.
When Voyager first left for the outer regions of our solar system, they sent along with it a picture of what a man and woman looks like. They are both “naked”, that is, without clothing. Is that a false advertisement? Maybe the Aliens did see it, came and said “where are the humans they showed us? Oh…there they are, at a nudist resort! Why are they there and not in public?” Strange humans.”Image
