Ok. How many pages will it take for this thread to turn into a God discussion?


I say 5.

Turn into, or start becoming?

It's got the material, for sure.

well, i personally think, god has changed in like the last 2 or 3 [months in real world, weeks in time concerning the sinfest strips]...his character[or he] is clearly becoming a bit more...weird. sure, he was sarcastical all right at anytime before, but since the "i think you are not listening" strip...well he is veering WAY off the track[in the strip. in reality, which is only a poor derivate of the strips, though, he seems to be messing around a bit longer]. it bothers me, because tat is right with that[as you see in my annotations between the brackets].

can anyone guess what i am trying to say?

I dont know about discussing god. I liked the quote twister gave. Shakespeare is great. "All the world is a stage, and all the people merely players. they have there entrances and exits, and one man in his time plays many parts." great stuff.

Oh, God. Not that line. Why is it every time I hear that damned line, it's misquoted?

Here it is from As You Like It in its proper context:

Quote:
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.


Ain't such a happy thing now, is it?

Never said it was happy, just great. A work of literary genius. But dang, that is depressing. Hence i choose to look at the brighterr side of life.

And for the record, I wasn't that far off for my part. Not as bad as "Elementary, my dear Watson" which was actually never said by sherlock.

A cohesive narrative would've been nice. Jesus doesn't really stay on character like he should. You'd think over the ~1800 or so years it's been around, the editors could have nailed all that down. Wink

*Places bets on three pages or less*

Of course, I probably derailed it. Crying or Very sad

I must say that stage directors like this rendition of god are annoying. So are many modern artists, you know: the ones who throw paint on a canvas and call it a masterpiece?

Yeah... I went into the national museum of modern art and most of it was crap I could do... like there was a cube stuck in between two mirrors for $1,000... WTF!
And I would watch the Truman Show, not the funniest of Jim Carrey's movies but interesting concept...

Ya haven't seen The Truman Show? Definitely, see it.

And yes. Art for the sake of "originality" is not art, imo.

In case I don't see ya... good afternoon, good evening, and goodnight!

That's nothing compared to all the noncanonical fanfiction which has almost completely shaped the popular conception, especially of the devil. Paradise Lost and The Inferno seem to be where most people draw their ideas about Satan, and both works are highly invented and allegorical literature which were NOT meant to be genuine commentary on the subject of the Devil. So much of the popular Satan image is completely fictitious (assuming biblical accounts to be reliable in this case) that it's ridiculous.
