I liked it.
Perhaps you lacked the background in manned space travel to appreciate it. Knowing about the history of EVAs (space walks) and of the repairs and upgrades of the Hubble Space telescope made the movie richer.
A certain amount of knowledge of movie making and an esthetic eye help as well. The visuals were breathtaking.
Also, you needed a certain amount of empathy to experience the drama.
I saw no religious implications there. But then to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
I wish you well also.

Yes, the special effects were amazing. But special-effects alone don't make a good movie. It was boring, drawnout and unbelievable in a realistic way. I know plenty about manned space travel, spacewalks and upgrades to the Hubble space telescope. But it was still a crappy and boring movie.

You really didn't see the religious implications? The end, when Bullock was giving up she turned off the oxygen and said that nobody would pray for her soul. She said she didn't know how to pray, that no one ever taught her how. Just then, Clooney appeared to her in a vision. That was God answering her prayer, giving her insight on how to help herself, use the landing tickets for thrust.

She says: "But the thing is, it's that I'm still scared. I'm really scared. Nobody will mourn for me, no one will pray for my soul. Will you mourn for me? Will you say a prayer for me? Or is it too late? Ryan Stone: I mean, I'd say one for myself, but I've never prayed in my life, so. Nobody ever taught me how. Nobody ever taught me how."

Then remember near the end, where she prays again, asking for Clooney to care for her dead daughter and tell her mommy missed her?

How could you miss the religious implications there?!

I see some truth in your statement but I also see some misconceptions. It's true that Muslims are taught to obey without question, and in some locales it is a death sentence for questioning anything.
On the Christian side (being one who converted from agnosticism) I can say that I had a lot of the same misconceptions you have now. I will say that fundamentalist denominations can be very extreme and literal in how they practice their beliefs. Handling rattlesnakes, picketing military funerals, and outlawing high school dances is just NUTS! And they too discourage any serious inquiries. I think this is as dangerous as it is stupid.
Believe it or not, there are progressive denominations that encourage questions, encourage choices, and have serious issues with those who try to control. Not every denomination tries to control their members. That's mostly in fundamentalist churches. Here's an example:
Where I live, there's a church that won't let a person in on Sunday if they're not wearing a tie (if a male) or a dress (if female) and they're not nice about it.
However, the church I attend could care less if I wear jeans and t-shirt (in fact many do just that) and our pastor asks what is more important; how they dress or that they care enough to show up? We don't require people to give money to the offering, and if they do, they can put it in an envelope and write what cause (or charity) they want it to go to, and believe me, that's where it goes.
So it's with respect that I say to you, don't be too quick to think we're all the same. And just because we're not doesn't mean there isn't a God. It just means that humans are always going to disagree about something. Doesn't matter what it is.
Oh my God, that was an amazing post.

Pagan Worship is tied directly to the RCC.. Ceasar Augustus saw to that in 10 bce...
I really have no idea what you are talking about. They have their version of belief and you have yours. Who is to say who is more wrong?

Note Caesar lived before any sort of christianity even raised it’s ugly head, it is a fallacy (or a direct lie) that he had anything to do with christianity. Caesar was a devotee of Venus who he claimed direct lineage, perhaps also Mars and/or Mithras

Apollo was a roman god who drove the sun across the sky in a fiery chariot. About 2% of Americans still believe the sun is towed across the sky in a chariot, the difference is the driver, these Americans believe it is ridden by the baby jesus.

Paul's tenet that women must keep their heads covered with a veil during prayer is quite inconvenient and, for this reason, has either been rationalized away or ignored, although it is no less binding than any other moral law in the New Testament:

"...but any woman who prays or prophecies with her head unveiled dishonors her head.... For if a woman will not veil herself, then we should cut off her hair: but if it be disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her wear a veil.... Judge for yourself; is it proper for a woman to pray to God with head uncovered?" (1 Cor. 11:5-13 RSV)

Watch Joyce Meyers, is her head covered? Is she wearing a veil? Does she put one on when she prays to God? No of course not.

Just once I would like to find someone claiming to be a Christian who follows biblical teachings.

That's no lie, I've been to churches that insist on formal wear when attending. They are usually the uptight and boring churches. The ones I like are the ones that don't care how you dress, what you believe or if you donate to them or not, they're just happy that they can spread the Word to you..

Yeah, and if theists had really read the bible and understood the implications, they'd be following the details and constrain ts to the letter. The Yahweh! isn't known for overlooking slackers.

But it's their belief. It can be anything they want.

BTW, here's some Joyce Meyer...

"Everybody is too focused on finding out everything about all things today. People are too focused on dissecting every little bit of knowledge they can find about everything on and outside - this earth - and this isn't good. We need to have some things in life that remain unknown. We call this trust. This is what is called faith , and trust or faith is necessary to know god" -- Joyce Meyer 12-21-2005

I thought we had not long ago agreed that ‘it was up to you’ and it seems that you choose to blow it. So if you can ever manage to get that tiny pecker of yours hard enough to actually use in a woman then one thing is for sure. Miracles can happen.

Strange, but I somehow expected you'd respond like that. Why is it that you name the one and not the other?

When someone asks you which deity you worship, you more often than not come back with a response similar to: <Ar aR> "...GOD" <==== A generic name for a deity.

Or another response similar to: <Ar aR>"...fuckoff" <====A strange name for a deity.

Joyce Meyer is a loon and a false teacher. She "teaches" things like; If you don't believe Jesus went to hell, you cannot be saved, and; Jesus stopped being the Son of God. She also thinks she isn't a sinner and has been quoted saying that.

If you wanna find nutty Christian "preacher" quotes, she's your man.

That's what evidence based thinking does for you.

Do you not recall Darwins Stepchild going from questioning the historicity of David to accepting it when evidence of his existence was presented to him on another thread? I had told himthat I had just accepted the historicity of David based on a link he provided to a NOVA show that he had seen years earlier. He thought that I was mistaken - that David's son Solomon was the earliest figure to have reliable evidentiary support for. I believe it was Aura Mytha who presented links outlining the archeology uncovering David's castle, after which he rewatched the video and posted his gratitude for being updated. From http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T...

Darwins Stepchild wrote: BTW...I watched the "Bible's Buried Secrets" again, and you were correct. I remembered the part where they said that David had been considered mythological, but had forgotten where they said the House of David stele was considered good historical proof of David's existence.

IANS wrote: Thanks again for that link. I knew the part about the Exodus and siege of Canaan being mythology, but the material about the historicity of David and Solomon, and the J E D P documentary hypothesis material was new to me. It's odd that we can establish that ancient figures like David, Solomon, Alexander and Caesar were all historical characters, but this alleged god Jesus still eludes confirmation.

This is how we roll.

You're a faith based thinker, however. Your faith requires Jesus to have actually lived, so you assume that it is fact, and scoff at others who don't accept your paltry supporting evidence as conclusive.
