So I asked this: Was Absalom's hair really that strong?
An objectively scientific question: can human hair be that big/strong? Yet it was put on hold for being a "Truthy/Is X a sin" question, and this was after I had already accepted a well received answer. What gives? Was the title throwing off people that didn't read the content of the question, but only the title?
If it's not already clear, I do like to ask out-of-the-box, sometimes silly, shock-worthy questions (while still being on topic) with a reasonably
linkbait attractive title.
Update: @Caleb's pointed out the question doesn't apply to this site because it's scientific in nature, not Christian. To that I say: why then was it flagged as being truthy?
Y'know NBA referees could call a foul every play if they followed the rule book to the letter, but people come to enjoy the game, not the officiating, so they err to the side of letting things go.
The true foundation of this question was about the trustworthiness of the Word of God and whether the passage was literal, verifiable, or neither. How does that not belong on Christianity.SE? I admit this question is gray, but it was a well received question with a well received answer--couldn't that make us want to tip the scale in favor of keeping it open? When we really could go either way, why not the way of favoring it? People come to this.SE for good questions and answers about Christianity and I think this had all.
