Beards connote piety, spiritual intensity and a life so hard at study that there is no time for a shave

I have been showing my piety and spiritual intensity for many years.

Of course, the beard is only a sign of righteousness. It is no guarantor...

Or have I?

    # 7 above is why I don't have a beard ... you know "Abstain from all appearance of evil" 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJV)

Truth be told...

Two reasons for the beard:
1) Grew it when I was taking on a management position (1996 or so) and I wanted to look older
2) I really, really hate shaving

So, nothing very intellectual or spiritual going on in my case!
