This wonderful 12 minute TED Talk (and it really is fun and wonderful) shows exactly what I meant about definitions being a dangerous thing. We incorporate our definitions into our culture and believe them to be true. We label people, places and things and define them by things we make up that are incorrect and for the reasons behind them are also incorrect. Watch this…it’s excellent and besides, camels are really cool.

You have no idea where camels really come from
