Drink Your Way Into Heaven?

Holy Drinking Water, produced by a California-based company called Wayne Enterprises, is blessed in the warehouse by an Anglican or Roman Catholic priest (after a thorough background check). Like a crucifix or a rosary, a bottle of Holy Drinking Water is a daily reminder to be kind to others, says Brian Germann, Wayne's CEO. Another company makes Liquid OM, superpurified bottled water containing vibrations that promote a positive outlook. Invented by Kenny Mazursky, a sound therapist in Chicago, the water purportedly possesses an energy field that Mazursky makes by striking a giant gong and Tibetan bowls in its vicinity. He says the good energy can be felt not just after you drink the water but before, when you're holding the bottle.

Some questions:
-Do you think drinking these particular brands of water will aide you in your quest for "godliness"?
-What does this say about the consumer-driven market in America?
-If you saw these bottles on the shelf of your local super-market, what would you do?
-If the water is "blessed", does it make it any better for drinking?

Yeah I saw this on Nightline back in April and blogged about it here,

"Move over Evian, here comes Holy Water"

Why don't they take advantage of science and include a statement:"Every bottle is guaranteed to have at least 1 water molecule which was drunk by Jesus while living on Earth." Or even better "Every water molecule in this bottle was created by God."

Oh, don't forget that every breath you take has a molecule breathed by Jesus, Moses, Isaiah...
