The fallacy of the divine right of kings

Paul says: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” (2 Timothy 3:16).  This might well be true, but that does not make all scripture the word of God.  If God inspires me to write a letter, it would not make my letter God’s letter.  The letter would still be mine.

SEE: The world's most identical triplets who eat the same food, have the same weight

Laura, Nicola and Alison Crimmins from Dublin, Ireland, are the three stunning models dubbed the World's most identical twins, and they do everything together- from eating the same type of food, to modelling, to living together, exercising and even hair styling.

The 29-year-old triplets ensure they do everything in accord so they can all look beautifully alike.
They eat exactly the same thing and, as a result, the 5ft11 sisters have matching 28inch waists, 34A bra sizes, and weigh bang on 8 ½ stone.
 
Laura, who’s in a long-term relationship, said:

“We live identical lives so we look the same and we love it. “It’s important we use exactly the same products and get all our beauty treatments together – whether that’s spray tanning, nails, make-up or our haircuts. We all book ourselves in for an appointment with our hairdresser Kathy at the same time so our locks look identical. Whether we are getting our highlights done, a blow dry or just a trim, Kathy will book us one after the other so there’s no difference in our styles.”

Allison who is single adds:

 “It’s important for our job as triplet models that we look exactly alike so we eat the same diet and exercise together too. We go for a run together in the morning then having porridge for breakfast. For lunch, we go to the same café together and order a salad. Then for dinner, it’s grilled chicken with a baked potato. We have even have the same food on cheat days, which is usually a Dominos pizza.”

Nicola explains:

“We’re so close. We have a ‘Sisters Whatsapp’ so we are always in constant contact with each other all the time and buy the same things.”

Laura says:

“We’ve been approached by modelling scouts in shopping malls since we were about ten years old. “But we waited until we were sixteen years old when we were signed by a modelling agency. After that the work rolled in, we’ve done television shows, press calls, fashion shows. We even got to skip school for modelling shoots - it was great!”
