    Whatever one might want to say about the rest of the movie, these are thirty of my favorite seconds in film.

    Haha, that's awesome. I'll use that next time I'm in an argument with one of my Christian friends.

    More sound-bites instead of argument. More or less what I've come to expect.


    Bingo. =D= You've just admitted that the problem isn't 'religion' per se , but indoctrination. And yes, the USSR did just exactly that; they 'replaced' religion with Marxism. Mankind is hard-wired to be 'religious' or worship something either way: take away religion, and he'll replace it with something else - worship of celebrity, worship of The State, etc.



    Cliques are gonna clique....[face_tired]

    I don't care (whoomp!!! there it is!!!) if people don't engage with ME - after all, I don't live on the internet. I want to see if they will engage with the arguments/points . So far, only one or two posters have done so.


    [face_laugh]

    And triple LOL at the idea that Christianity is the greatest threat to our liberty.....



    ^^^^^^This.


    Iow, it's a handy rhetorical club to beat religion with.....

    Yeah, I've noticed, 'brah'.

    "Jedi" Council Community....no Star Wars here!!!

    wonders how people on a SW-related website presumably like some or all of the films but somehow don't also accept the premise(s) of the films, or never considered them for even a moment .......[face_thinking]

    "No Star Wars here" sounds like another tactic of convenience.....

    It's because we have 379 other forums on here that discuss SW and 124 of them are all fan-fic.

    You know, people have considered them. Plenty of people think the idea of cults adopting children to teach them superpowers is stupid. And that the idea of 'the will of the Force' is ludicrous. I don't see how 'accepting the premise' is necessary to appreciate these movies. I don't claim to have learned anything about life from Star Wars. Or the Matrix. Or any one of a number of other good movies.

    But, you know, cool lightsabers and scary Darth Vader. And being that it's a space opera movie most people don't care to ponder its philosophies.

    Especially in the Community forum which has been for years about non-Star Wars discussion. We have dozens of other forums for that.

    Which isn't to say you can't talk about it in a context like this, but expect most people to be non-responsive. And quote 'we don't discuss Star Wars in the JCC', because we don't.

    Also this isn't a Senate thread so it'll be mostly sarcasm and bad jokes. Sorry to lower your expectations.

    Fair enough, Marcus. I probably should have checked out the JCC more thoroughly before posting.

    I don't think the Senate thread would be for me, though. From what I've seen of it, there's too much of the Republocrat/Demican false-dichotomy going on ( "oh there he goes again!!!!" ).

    That tends to happen in the political threads yes, but I've found religion threads to be less so.

    I remember some TV show that explained American politics to British kids, it said "The Republican party is right wing; it's a lot like the Conservative party, while their opponents the Democratic party is right wing and a lot like the Conservative party."

    They shouldn't have to "search." Jor-El keyed in a specific destination and flight plan. It's pretty easy to retrace someone's steps on a computer, a is infamously well known around these boards. I should think that with all their technology, Kryptonians have invented key loggers.
