Re: Wathcya watchin'?

THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933)

Even the moon's frightened of me, frightened to death!


THE MUMMY (1932)

He went for a little walk! You should have seen his face!

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

All this, while philosophically fascinating, really skirts the central question, doesn't it? Is it really the crux of any matter how we define god or whether or not we profess a belief in one? The point of this has long been the argument that without this god thing we cannot function as a moral soc...

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

And of course "Creation" might be something other than "God" and calling it that might prevent you from seeing it for what it really is.

Re: Adventures in Eating

Lori I know what a hard job it is. It's a real skill I do not take for granted. I'm a generous tipper. And I know that even writing it down doesn't prevent mistakes. But not writing it down increases the chances of making mistakes considerably.

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

3. Barber I can't criticize your view. I wish more religious believers actually thought the way you do. My only question is, since what you are doing, essentially, is reverencing the conditions of the reality in which we find ourselves; it's mysterious origins, our ability to think and consider the...

Re: Adventures in Eating

Note to the servers and hosts our there who may be tuned in:

Whatever coolness factor you think you have achieved by not writing down the order is quickly diminished when you come back ten minutes later and ask us again what it was we ordered or worse, bring us the wrong food.

Write it down!

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

Wow. A lot to chew on. I'll try to be brief. 1. The "old man in the clouds". It's easy to deride this view of god but it should be pointed out that this idea comes from the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. The writers used the images that were available to them to depict the presence of go...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Started the next book of LoTR. These are delicious books, just so much fun to read. I have always thought the first volume was the best part. I always liked the early adventures better than the later more epic battles. On the other hand I thought the first movie was the weakest and the second movie...

Re: The Appeal

Ay, sounds it not like some old well-known tale? For me, I estimate their works and them So rightly, that at times I almost dream I too have spent a life the sages' way, And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer For one...

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

Mark I can understand your point of view. But I can safely say that going over to the Pavilion and merely announcing that you have produced a cultural artifact that is now available for the edification of all and sundry does not cross that line.

Toot your bugle, boy, toot your bugle.

Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

I got this in Sunday school, way back when, that the guy standing in the square going on about how god speaks to him is likely the least reliable and the least faithful. And yet, ironically, the one most like the early Christian believers. It is interesting that certain behaviors which would bring ...

Re: Frank Church's news corner, the sequel.

Oh well the people have spoken. At least the few who showed up at the polls. The younger set, who showed up in record numbers to give Obama his election victory, seem to have sat this one out. Strange, since they have the most to lose. I can understand voting your interest. What I can't understand i...

Re: Robert Nason's Culture Café

Robert, congrats on the article. Boy you got to toot your own bugle , as Granny used to say when she got into the corn. I think a little pridefulness and even a bit of arrogance is in order. Neither you nor Mr Tiedemann have cause for humility. It speaks well of you but it is way overrated as a pers...
