I don't get it. What's so special about our culture and this movie?

it plays with horror movie tropes by introducing some larger picture to explain why most horror movies suck or are all the same

it's fun because it does that, but it's pretty good in it's own right too.

Hipsterism, because being a plain old atheist is no longer trendy.

/thread

As a Christian myself, I actually agree with this response.

I'd compare my own beliefs, however, to a Soren Kierkegaard or Thomas Merton, both of whom worked and tested their own beliefs to see if they truly propelled them to be "better," to have a purpose, and to benefit not only themselves (which I indicated first) but those around them. Foraying into whether God is worthy of contemplating about is an important question. For me, I contemplate about Him/Her often, for I find myself to be continually renewed in my thinking, doing, and "being" when I look through or at least towards a source outside of myself, and outside of the constructs of society itself. This is why I spend a great deal of time focusing on how Christians lived prior to Constantine; many people assume Christianity has always had a fairly dark history, but it wasn't really until Constantine hijacked the religion that it became narrow-minded and warlike. To sum up, I have overcome my anger, my narrow-mindedness, and my ignorance by looking to an absolute model or standard of a person and doing whatever I can to act like them.

Progress for its own sake worries me because no matter how altruistic someone's or some society's progressive agenda is, if something beyond is not looked to as the "final answer" or "final judge," it seems the progress could become easily corrupted. We see this also in another thread on the page with the 1st amendment/PC discussion. It seems "progressive" to arrest/make illegal hateful or prejudiced comments or speech, but if they are outlawed, where then do you stop? Where will the line end?

i've always thought the concept of the "leap of faith" to be one of the more beautiful philosophical concepts but it's something so overlooked because of edgy nihilistic kids who misunderstand nietzsche

Oh Jesus F'ing Christ.....

See? This is where part of society is "well what and for what not am I thinking?"

You're not thinking anything important, all life functions work without your commands, if they don't you die.

You're not special, you don't have any insight.

Everyone just lives.

>thinking just because you think of a thought that may be unoriginal means youre better off not thinking at all

>holding on so dearly to societal expectations and constructs and status quo

alright dude

i've had something like that a few times; it's always a private epiphany because when you start spouting shit that you finally understand on a conceptual level, people tend to not believe you and think you're stupid for thinking of something that they think is relatively simple

for example, i've always heard the platitude that the world is a harsh place and people suck and are selfish, but it's only after experiencing it from someone who i thought cared about me did i really believe it. i never try to let that get to me though and it fuels my expectations and gives me a sense of drive and purpose to do the opposite

@sayyy-gaa: ?? you mean like "straight outta compton" ?

that's just old rap artists living off past reputations trying to stay relevant, that's not "influence". NWA's influence in the rap game now is more or less focused in kendrick, but even he is just a small piece in the much larger picture of the rap game

one can argue that a tribe called quest or DOOM or madlib or even old 70's funk or even kanye west have way more influence in the rap game NOW than NWA

not to mention death grips coming out of nowhere and just being their own separate entity in the rap game
