Haha, yeah I had heard so many good things about DeLillo and thought maybe White Noise the film was just a horrible translation of the book, but I was much more satisfied learning that the two had...

Loved Delillo's White Noise for so many reasons. I seem to be a sucker for novels that are themed with consumerism, media hype, man-made disasters, and the inevitability of death. This one has it all!

I agree with most of what you're saying here but Hilary's positions become relevant in the article because it specifically mentions Hilary only to downplay their differences, which is not genuine or...

It was a great year but There Will Be Blood takes it. Not the actual award of course, because that's almost per se wrong, but the actual best movie of that year.

Finally got around to watching the final few episodes. Almost everyone's wrap up felt a little rushed but there were so many great scenes to try to make up for it. Excellent show. I miss it already,...

Star Wars is silly, watching people defend it is always amusing though. At least its only poorly written and not offensive like the Bond franchise.

There is some really great literature within the Bible that is definitely worth revisiting, namely Ecclesiastes. Many of the other stories are fascinating when looked at in a different context, such...

I'm not postulating anything. I'm not assuming anything. I have plenty of doubt. And I certainly haven't asked you to say anything to me.

Pretty standard metaphysical philosophical and theological concepts of god. Even Tillich's existential theology would posit god in this way.

Edit: I didn't see that this was pretty much answered...

Because the fundamental nature of being or purpose (if there is one ) is inherently metaphysical. The whole concept of god is infinite as I understand it, and therefore must be kept separate from the...

You are equating logical and sensical with scientific. Philosophy and theology can be logical and sensible even though god will never meet the standard of scientific proof.

Also, reality can be...

Fair enough, and having read the graphic novels I think you're right in the autobiography storytelling sense, but it still doesn't take away from the disappointment I get in that story. So maybe it...

I thought the film got weaker as Marji got older, and, ironically considering the film's focal theme, when Marji goes to Vienna due to what I thought was a strange and disappointing series of...

Did you make that up? Because I hope for the world's collective education that it can't be true.

I did a lot of different actual work outside of school, the academics just don't give you the right insight into what the area of practice is really like, imo. I did workers comp stuff for a judge,...

I always find myself repeating this sentiment when people say if I don't like a movie I should just be quiet and not see it. I think from now on I will tie it to my hatred for James Bond movies as...
