Re: Deleted Thread?

Oh yeah, Trump has pretty much ended the Korean conflict (war) from the 1950s with a flourish of broad strokes. Finally. What remains is the details.

Re: Christian Atheism

If no God exists, and man is the supreme measurer, than man falls under the definition of God as supreme being. Christianity observes the premise of God as Man and corroborates with a very weak form of atheism. I agree Jesus was human, a teacher of rightousness. as were all the other old prophets. ...

Re: Jordan Peterson for President - too bad he's Canadian

i just watched JP talk about 1950s dads, that was so cringy especially with that Kermit the Frog voice of his, it came across like a weird old guy going on about 'young people today' - he seemed like a Platonic archtype of the convserative but harmless and slightly embarassing drunk uncle men compl...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

at the risk of bombing this thread - i've thought of a few more "old" movies. Seven Days in May - there are no bad guys here, only a president (Fredrick March) that loves his country and a general that does also, and intends to take over the nation in order to save it. (such a movie - where the audi...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

Siddhartha was a pretty good movie, a work of art. From the seventies, I think. Bollywood is awesome in the purity of its unsophistication. I saw Siddhartha (the budda) over at my nearby Oklahoma City Art Museum theater around 2000 - where i saw Water a couple of years later. it was ok, but not all...

Re: Favourite movie scenes

Thanks for those titles and suggestions, gaffo. What did you think of Slumdog Millionaire? never saw it - nor interest in - seemed a "feel good movie about rags to riches" - might be a great movie, but the premise seemed too pat for me (pat is my first name BTW - prefer anonymity on the net - but j...
