Aberration: n. a departure from what is normal, usual or expected, typically one that is unwelcome.
A black man reading a book
A woman voting
A glass bulb which produces light
Removing leeches from the body to assist in healing
The knowledge that tiny bacteria cause disease
The earth is round
People of different races marrying each other
An evolving universe
Jews are not rats
Rock and roll is really great music
Long hair, as it turns out, is not going to destroy human sexuality
God loves everybody
All of these were once aberrations–unwelcome departures from the a “normal thinking.”
If you will excuse me, I must leave now, to discover the next aberration–and do my best to keep from fighting it.
