    Heat without God
    Tonight I would like to have the ability to see the difference between truth and provocation in this post.
    My bet: …
    (Too hot to decide.)

    What if there isn't such a difference? :)

    What is this religious propaganda doing on the collective? I don't see any point of this video except to reinforce Christian beliefs. Even if I am in no way against Christian beliefs, I don't feel this is exactly appropriate for a site like this, I guess I may be wrong, but I am quite frankly shocked to see it here and promoted so many times.

    Watch again. Its humor, it was supposed to make you laugh....

    Yay for sarcasm! It was way too awkward of a video to be serious. And plus, the narrator said that you could have sex with an adorable puppy...

    I AM personally AGAINST the Christian here or ANYwhere is as it always has been for mega-control of the masses! I watched the video above, and it really is it supposed to be daft like that; or, is it for real?It's not funny. Like one comment, it seems legitimately wrong in here!!
    I must watch it again, that is if I have the stomach for it; but, just to see if it is a parody or a "takeoff" of the—by now familiar—god sales pitch. The narrator does have a vaguely satirical tone to his voice. Even so, it is a really dodgy job! NOT FUNNY AT ALL!

    I must admit I am surprised by the number of comments this has attracted. The reason why I posted it is exactly because it plays with borderline messages on a few levels. Some of the lines are absurdly blunt and sarcastic while others are crisscrossing thin borders between seriousness and humor. On another level it moves very fast between extreme and subtlety. Indeed it is somewhat disconcerting. It invokes a sense of conceptual and perhaps even emotional disorientation, like good parody should. Bottomline it provokes(!) critical thought...
    does it not?

    Yesterday I started preparing myself for what would happened if one of the fundamental interactions were different. Today I got to laugh. I don't think it is on the borderline - I think its straight forward educational work. (I might steal it for my blog god bless.)
    There must be a center - origin of intuitive feeling for "god" that this lens of short educational movies could focus on. We could stimulate or explore that sense - like all senses.
    OK, more of the other. There is plenty of good things to do in life thinking that universe is like idea, like me, like you, in our face. As you see all these chats about simulation argument, or weird functional (instructional) talking like hypnosis, even romance are keeping us FLOATING. I am not defending religion, I just have more room to discuss holy topics - there you go.

    Well, the interpretation is simple, said I a second ago and behold. Its like the Slumdog Millionaire. We understand there is hidden knowledge/answers for all things. School teachers get to tell them and everybody else runs away. Alternatively, answers are fixated in the teacher's book. WAIT! They are not! THEY ARE ALIVE!!!
