I have no idea how these "stars" appeared by my name. I didn't request my account be "reset" to more accurately reflect my awesomeness after registering for the Private Boards.

I was trying to be humble with my single star.

Thanks for ruining my show of virtue.

I think that attitude is quite detrimental to science fiction fandom as a whole. At the very least we should be able to agree that there is merit, something to be learned and enjoyed, in all these franchises. Furthermore, I'd like to suggest that they may not be as incompatible as some people insist. For example, Firefly shows the rise of two distinct groups of people: People with immense psychic and martial abilities, and tribes of savage warriors IN SPACE. Star Wars shows these groups having filled niches in society as the Jedi and the Sand People respectively. I could go on, but I don't think the goals of sci-ficumenism and even sci-fyncretism are as far-fetched as some people claim.

For my upcoming graduate student discussion on the readings in my French Enlightenment class, one of the books I had to read was written by the professor.

This might very well happen during the discussion.

Prof: "Tell me, what did I mean when I wrote this?"
Me: "I don't know, you wrote it. What DID you mean?"

I have. I also greatly admire Metropolitan Chysostomos of Zakynthos who, when asked by the Nazis for a list of all the Jews on Zakynthos, gave them a piece of paper with only his name on it.

I guess it's the exclusivism of Christianity's claims that I'm struggling with. It's pretty obvious that Christianity can make people better, but is it really the most effective way? Are good people outside of Christianity really only good in spite of their heathenry?

If humans were created in the image of a good God, we should expect them to do good things at least once in a while. I think it would be more of a problem for Christianity if unbelievers never did good at all. It would mean we were even more depraved than Scripture ever indicates.

I would say that the ideal for man is Christ. However that is not to say that people cannot be good without Christ. The post-Christian worldview allows atheists to be "good" but in the framework of atheism both good and evil can be permissible.

However I wouldn't reduce Christianity to just a moral compass.

"Elohim," the name for the creative power in Genesis, is a female plural, a fact that generations of learned rabbis and Christian theologians have all explained as merely grammatical convention. The King James and most other Bibles translate it as "God," but if you take the grammar literally, it seems to mean "goddesses." Al Shaddai, god of battles, appears later, and YHWH, mispronounced Jehovah, later still. ~ Robert Anton Wilson
