Original scripts of the bible could not have POSSIBLY said pharmecia. I don't even have to break out google or crack a book to break this down for you, it's clearly Greek. Original biblical texts were written in ancient Hebrew; a language that is still largely untranslatable. 25% of the characters found have no known translation and within it couldn't possibly have used that word.
Nice how you equated pharmaceuticals with witchcraft though. Sort of makes it all evil and stuff. You either need to put the copy of Constantine down or slap your Pastor for being an idioto. When pharmecia was used as a term for witchcraft it cannot be cross translated back into english then associated with modern medicine. Pharmecia was used to denote anyone who practiced ANYTHING thought unnatural. Which included taking of herbs to cure disease, or fixing broken bones, or dancing around a fire and chanting to a god that was unlike their own. Now Pharmacy isn't the only off-putting word in common use that has a dubious Greek translation or root word. It has been used because of it's association with witch-doctors and the early, fetus like, stages of medicine as we know it. remember witchcraft isnt an old hag on a broom who has giving her soul to Satan. It can also be someone who drilled into the skull to relieve the pressure of hemorrhaging after severe head trauma, or found a plant that eased migraine headaches because of chemical properties it has. Since in these early stages no one could explain how it worked or the person who found it liked to chant as administering it, it was seen as supernatural or "WITCHCRAFT". Of course we know today why it works and also that it doesnt take a witch doctor with magical powers to deliver it.
So in short, it says NOTHING about modern drugs and gives all of us a glimpse into your knowledge of language and scripture. This is not meant to insult, I'm sure there are many things you can do better than I. Raise children for instance... far too much stress/work for me. But given this I would think it proper that you not espouse views of pot or linguistics as fact and I'll stay far away from the nuances of child rearing and whatever it is you do in your professional life.
