The question of god
Yesterday I was watching a program on PBS "The question of god" and thru out 4 hours I was glued to my TV set, I like to share this program with you and get your perspective on it.

Here is a preview


The Question of God, a four-hour series on PBS, explores in accessible and dramatic style issues that preoccupy all thinking people today: What is happiness? How do we find meaning and purpose in our lives? How do we reconcile conflicting claims of love and sexuality? How do we cope with the problem of suffering and the inevitability of death? Based on a popular Harvard course taught by Dr. Armand Nicholi, author of The Question of God, the series illustrates the lives and insights of Sigmund Freud, a life-long critic of religious belief, and C.S. Lewis, a celebrated Oxford don, literary critic, and perhaps this century's most influential and popular proponent of faith based on reason.

the rest you can find it here

I have recently read an interesting abstract titled: Imagination and Reality: On the relations between myth, consciousness, and the Quantum sea. by Charles D. Laughlin and C. Jason Throup, published in Zygon? Volume 36, Issue 4, Page 709-736, Dec 2001 that may interest you.

I have the PDF, so if anyone want it, I will send them a copy by email.

And while I have the Pink Floyd Lyric sheet up in response to a post on another thread...(just seemd appropriate here - thinking of belief and how we envision our god/gods...)

Pink Floyd

Sheep

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
You better watch out
There may be dogs about
I've looked over Jordan and I have seen
Things are not what they seem.

What do you get for pretending the danger's not real
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes
Now things are really what they seem
No, this is no bad dream.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives he releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo,m he hath great power and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water.

Blasting and bubbling I fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.

Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead!
You better stay home
And do as you're told
Get out of the road if you want to grow old.

He's just quoting Linda Richmond (aka Mike Myers as shown in the picture wink.gif) from a sketch he used to do on this US TV show called Saturday Night Live. The whole show was about admiring Barbara Streisand and every once in a while (s)he would get verklempt when thinking about barbara ... and then while she was verklempt, she would give topics to the audience to discuss ... like how the coldwar was neither cold, nor a war. biggrin.gif

They use verklempt in other situations here in Germany. Not very appropriate for me to mention here. biggrin.gif
