Filling in for Dr. J. Plenty of prime TDG fodder about, so dig in…

Quote of the Day:

The ultimate paradox of materialism is that the one feature of the universe which alone gives meaning to all the rest is the one feature which has to be declared redundant! Nothing can account for its emergence; nothing follows from its existence.

  1. Top 20 Blasphemous Moments…
    Mmmm… I could have come up with more examples. What list about “blasphemy” is completed without mentioning “The Last Temptation of Christ” by Nikos Kazantzakis? which was banned here in Mexico for many years, and I was able to see it until fairly recently.

    Other examples in film would be “Dogma” by Kevin Smith, (which has never been aired in Mexico);

    AAAAaaand let’s of course not forget “The Davinci Code” which owed his very moderate success at the box office precisely because it was so fervently criticized by conservative catholic groups.

    And what about “The Golden Compass”? Watered down but it still received a lot of criticism by the Vatican.

    Let’s not forget that school teacher that had a lot of troubles for letting her class name a Teddy Bear after the prophet Mohammad.

    And while we’re at it, I think the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan by the Taliban regime could perhaps be considered blasphemy, right?

    Last, but certainly not least, Dawkin’s book “The God Delusion”, I’m sure he’s very depressed that his name didn’t make it in the list! Maybe next time Ricky 😉

    It’s not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me…
    It’s all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
