Bill,Thanks for proving my point about your anti-Christian "opinion". The movie was obviously made by a post modernist New Ager.
...or someone with a sense of humor? (Something tells me Stevie may not have seen this flick.) So Steve, how did you like the famous restaurant scene in this movie? Did that have any effect on you spiritually?The movie is actually, aesthetically more in keeping with the existentialist/surrealist theatre of the absurd as developed in drama by Beckett and Ionesco, in literature by Camus et al, and in art by the Dadaist and Surrealist genres.It is decidedly neither post-modern, nor New Age.
It is, however, hilarious.
So what does mocking others' beliefs in the name of humor do for "unity"? Or decorum?
It encourages us all to laugh at ourselves and not take ourselves or each other so seriously... especially when we have absolutely no clue what in the world we're talking about.
I'm laughing.It's Friday.Seriousness can resume Monday.Auf Wiedersehen!
So this is a comedy blog, not a decorum forum with mature discussions on the news?
Well, it's pretty much a comedy blog when you're on here, Steve. (...just kidding.)
But seriously, folks...The point of this post is that when we say "life" it has to mean something. Same with "death." Our challenge is to try to understand what. What do we really mean when we say life? And beyond that, what do we mean when we say "person" or "human being?" Or angel, or Satan, or God, or heaven, or hell.These are questions that we have pondered since we've been able to ponder questions, it seems.And one of the most magnificent of such ruminations is a an epic poem written around 1320 A.D. in Italy by a poet named Dante Aligheri. It is considered one of the greatest works of literature in the world.And Sibby, guess what the title is?Oh yeah... "The Divine Comedy."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Comedy
