Friends,
Now let us see something else about the asterisk symbol being a 6-pointed star.
In ancient Hebrew, the six points of the star and the center in some 12th century Jewish texts could connotate that the six points and the center of the star are then seven parts. Seven, is a symbolic number in Jewdaism to mean {perfection}. You may have read some of what I have written here as the {seven} Gates. You may have read about what I posted aboput the bright and morning {star}.
Another member posted that the asterisk to them does not take away the significance of the meaning of the word because one can still see what the word is. So how does the asterisk {star} legitimize the word, if it does? How can a star make a profane word acceptable if it does? How can a star make a disparging epithet acceptable if it does? I will try to post from my perspective more about that question.
Lou
