How many enjoyed this movie? I did it was well done during its time.

If Jesus were alive, he would be on Jerry Springer.
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 24, 2018:
If Jesus were alive, the government would be calling him a liberal lefty loon, Fox would be calling him a dangerous extremist democrat, the churches and other religions would be calling him a fake, he would likely be in jail for insurrection and hate speech, feminists would be saying he was the wrong sex and had always been a woman if you read the bible in a certain way, and if it had not been done already some one would be trying to assassinate him.

If you as an individual can make the lives 7 people in he course of your life a little happier, you've done all right. If we a s a species can do this for one another things could get a little happier all round. Unfortunately as a species and as individuals, humans tend toward being arseholes both by chance and intent and worse tend to see being such as a virtue to be aspired to.

LenHazell53 comments on Jun 20, 2018:
Trump is an advocate of the political doctrine of Problem, Reaction, Solution and oppression by common consent. When you want something controversial done that might harm your reputation you do the following PRODUCE a problem (real or fictitious it does not matter) PROVOKE a (knee Jerk) reaction (out of anger or preferably Fear) PROVIDE a solution (which of course was your actual original intent all along) It is a variation on oneupmanship, having your potential opponent do your dirty work for you and let them think it was their idea and you are just doing your job. Ignorance, fear and panic are the tools of the despot, the tyrant does not oppress unless he is asked to do do it, the trick is to make oppression seem like the preferable option. To convince the people the golden cage is there to keep THEM out, not to keep YOU in.

Religious Homosexuals
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 18, 2018:
I have never understood this either, why would you fight so hard for acceptance in to an organisation that hates who and what you are, claims you are a crime against nature and twice in its own sacred texts condemns you to painful inhumane execution. In another group I previously belonged to, I was on speaking terms with a well known human rights and LBGTQ activist, who was knocking himself stupid to get back in to the LDS church, who had excommunicated him for his Homosexuality. I kept asking him why and he kept saying because he WAS A MORMON, a denomination that by definition despises gays people as one of their major selling points. I know about cognitive dissonance by some people abuse the privilege.

LenHazell53 comments on Jun 18, 2018:
Even if Christianity were proven to be true in so far as it was all real and accurate in its tenets it would make it no less disgusting and evil and I could not in good conscience subscribe to it. I'm not sure how you would prove Buddhism was the 'real deal', since it is largely an ideology, with a few aspects and elements that do have a few supernatural elements, but they are in no way at its core.

Why won't scientific evidence change the minds of Loch Ness monster true believers?
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 16, 2018:
.It has been theorised that it does exist, but it protected from gun happy hunters by officially denying it. It has to be admitted there are sightings going back literally centuries and that it may have once existed but has since gone extinct or is a migratory species that only comes back to the loch to spawn. Similar creatures have been reported in Cornwall, Ireland, New Zealand and Scandinavia so it could well be the loch is not it's permanent home. OR it could be a tourist stunt that has proven very profitable for a couple of centuries.

"During many ages there were witches.
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 16, 2018:
-Many people throughout the world still believe in witches, and in many cases torture, exorcise them, jail then and kill them. The last witch trail in the UK was in 1954, witchcraft only ceased to be illegal in the USA in 1973 and in Australia it was repealed as a crime to tell fortunes in 1979. Islam still condemns witches and magic users in Saudi Arabia you can still be executed for it, in India it is the same as Hinduism also condemns witches, there are five other countries Christian and otherwise were witchcraft is a capital offence, In Romania it is a taxable and licensable occupation, Iran has laws forbidding witches from interfering in government and politics, it is not a capital offence but you can be imprisoned for it, it is illegal in almost every African country to be a witch and in the Central African republic flying a broomstick in a designated commercial airspace is an offence for which you can be imprisoned. Most Christian church denominations still acknowledge practising witchcraft as a forbidden activity, tantamount to apostasy and in many including Catholicism and Mormonism with be considered grounds for excommunication. The Torah acknowledges the existence of witches and forbids their presence in Hebrew communities. Other capital scriptural offence still proliferate all over the world, mostly to do with adultery, homosexuality and Blasphemy.

LenHazell53 comments on Jun 14, 2018:

He was a despicable man, that fact taints my enjoyment of many of his Films. However "The Quite man" is a wonderful movie in spite of his being in it. *John on the Oscar nominations for 1970* Midnight Cowboy, a story about two fags, qualifies? *John On civil rights* I believe in white supremacy, until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don't feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves. It's just a fact of life, like the kid who gets infantile paralysis and has to wear braces so he can't play football with the rest of us. There's no doubt that 10 percent of the population is black, or colored, or whatever they want to call themselves; they certainly aren't Caucasian. I've directed two pictures and I gave the blacks their proper position. I had a black slave in The Alamo *John On Native Americans* I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them, Our so-called stealing of this country from them was just a matter of survival. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.

Quotes on Academia by Boyd K. Packer. Apostle of the LDS Church former head of church History and education I have a hard time with historians because they idolize the truth. The truth is not uplifting; it destroys. Historians should tell only that part of the truth that is inspiring and uplifting. *Faithful History: Essays On Writing Mormon History, * Some things that are true are not very useful. [H]istorians who are Latter-day Saints write history as they were taught in graduate school, rather than as Mormons...That is not scholarship. (secular) History can be as misleading as gossip Teaching some things that are true, prematurely or at the wrong time, can invite sorrow and heartbreak. The Lord made it very clear that some things are to be taught selectively, . Those who have carefully purged their work of any religious faith in the name of academic freedom or so-called honesty ought not expect to be accommodated in their researches. *“The Mantle Is Far, Far Greater Than the Intellect,” Boyd K.

Making friends after 30.
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 14, 2018:
I had a good friend, we knew one another and worked together for 30 years, he died at the age of 52 under sad circumstance in a foreign country under circumstance I found pathetic taken to as a means of combatting loneliness and against my advice. Friendship is over rated, especially in an age where being someone's friend is measured by how much you will allow them to put on you, while expecting nothing at all back. Most friendships I know are the user and the used, I don't use people and I will not be used, I have more self respect. I have a lot of acquaintances we chat, share a drink, even bond a little, but I get no closer than that. I will do anyone a favour once, if when I ask a favour back they say no, then I am unavailable the next time too, even if I am not. Friendship among children is easy, friendship among young people is often a cause of tension and jealousy, friendship in adults is great but you are lucky if you find only one or two good friends in your whole life and luckier still if they don't shit all over you when something “better” comes along.

"To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering." - Friedrich Nietzsche
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 14, 2018:
The quote is not from any of Nietzsche's philosophical works it is from a letter to his sister, and is an encapsulation of his liking for Buddhist attitudes (though not the ideology) that life is suffering, but when understood suffering can be a source of will, the odd phrasing is because unlike Nietzsche himself his sister still held some Christian religious sensibilities which he chose to respect.

Why does there have to be a reason for everything? Is even asking the question paradoxical?
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 14, 2018:
It is a bastardisation of the law of cause and effect. Every effect has a cause and every cause is an effect. However using the word reason as a simile for "cause" can be easily equivocated by confusing the various meaning of "reason". Everything has a cause, but that cause may not necessarily be reasonable or have any reason other than it being the effect of something else.

I'm something of a fan of version of the anthropic principle based upon the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and Niels Bohr, conception that physical existence is reliant on measurement and observation, therefore physical existence and consciousness are reliant on each other. That which is observed requires an observer in order to be observed and therefore exist, the observer requires an observer in order to exist and observe. Therefore self awareness of being is the root of everything, Awareness is observation Observation is measurement Measurement brings about existence (including time and space) Existence becomes aware The circle is complete. The most efficient way to achieve this is Sentient Life.

Suicide: a cowardly move? True or false?
LenHazell53 comments on Jun 12, 2018:
Committing suicide (that is actually killing yourself intentionally) is in my opinion a desperate action and though selfish is ultimately very brave act. *Attempting suicide with no real intention of actually dieing is a pathetic selfish cry for attention, done to take away from yourself the responsibility for dealing with your own problems and blame shifting. It impacts negatively on those around you and is the height of cowardice.* **Becoming suicidal, facing it, admitting you have a problem and seeking help either alone or with others is an act of unselfish bravery**

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, have any of you seen it?

My Mother's favourite movie of all time.
"The Ghost and Mrs Muir" This is going to be a mild rant about several issues.

I actually first came a cross "The Ghost and Mrs Muir" as a radio play, in the 1970's with James Robertson Justice as Captain Gregg, which lead me to find the film and as I have said before I watched it on the premise that George Sanders for me never made a bad film. I did watch the TV series later, and I'll be honest Edward Mulhare was an excellent Captain Gregg, though the writing and production was not up to much having come wholesale from the Doris day show, (Though the Waldman Brothers did write a couple of episodes before finding success writing the later Pink Panther films) and updating the setting was just a simple economy done for no other reason than to save money. The series was really a show piece for under rated comic genius Charles Nelson Reilly as Captain Gregg's foppish grand Nephew, but for me he will never be anyone but Hoodoo Voodoo in Lidsville.
I love quirky, non-mainstream movies like A Man Called Ove Still Life (not the mystery) Like ...

Lindsay Anderson is the god daddy of the offbeat film, If, Britannia Hospital, Oh Lucky man, to name only three, but also look at the (early) films of Ken Russel However one film I would recommend to anyone looking for a work of surreal genius is The Ruling Class (1972)
I've just finished watching Season 1 of Westworld and thought this was beautifully and cleverly ...

Had Michael Crichton still been alive I doubt very much this series would ever have been made.
Watched "Dorian Gray" last night (the newer one) and enjoyed it.

Love The Picture of Dorien Grey 1945 version (I will watch anything with George Sanders in it ) and it is amazing to see Angela Landsbury so young. The New version is okay, but the original benefits from being in black and white, it gives it a timeless feeling appropriate to the subject matter. By the way did anyone ever notice that the picture when revealed in the 1945 version is the basis for the make up used for Father Jack in later episodes of "Father Ted"? Also I suggest you read "Family Portrait" by Graham Masterton, an interesting retelling of the story.
How many have seen this movie?

Yes, not a great Westerns fan though, apart from "High Noon" and "the singer not the song"
If you had a nonreligious close friend who decided to become a believer and practice their faith ...

So long as they respected my desire to to hear about it or were willing for me to disagree openly with their expressed opinions. However if they start telling me I am going to hell, or am a sinner, then we will have a problem.
The Jews today refuse to believe that Jesus was the Christ or gods son.

There is also a current theory, among some theologians, that Jesus was never actually a Jew at all, hence his being so willing to disregard tradition and teachings. If he existed he is widely credited as having been raised in Egypt until the age of twelve, and though there were Jewish settlements in Egypt they were not Orthodox, but were so called "mystery" sects, Gnostics, Essenes and Israelites (as opposed to the tribes of Judah and Benjamin alone). It is obvious from the scriptures themselves that Jesus was aware of other religions and even openly refers to Buddhist Prayer wheels so may well have been exposed to their teachings. Some even suggest that Jesus was a Hermetic, hence the the mention of three wise men at his birth being a Christian tradition even though it is not in the bible, Three wise men= Trismegistus as in Hermes Trismegistus the mythical ancient Egyptian mystic and scientist.
