So there have been 3 episodes, do I need to watch?
It's been pretty good in my opinion, I'm definitely watching the rest
The women characters have been pretty easy on the eyes.
I will continue to watch it to it's conclusion. I'm just disappointed in how the material has been presented. It's really a very thin telling of the story, IMHO. They also show replays on the Lifetime network and The Family network if you miss it on the History Channel.
I think it has been pretty good..I like hearing about some of the older stories I wasn't really familiar with despite my 15 years of Catholic school education. #brainwashingfail
"Mission" episode starting soon.
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
From his Wiki-bio:
"....“In whatever kind of a ‘race’ life may be, I have very abruptly become a finalist,” Mr. Hitchens wrote in Vanity Fair, for which he was a contributing editor.
He took pains to emphasize that he had not revised his position on atheism, articulated in his best-selling 2007 book, “God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything,” although he did express amused appreciation at the hope, among some concerned Christians, that he might undergo a late-life conversion..."
But concensus sold many on AGW or human caused global warming. I guess it all depends on whether a person's biases, belief systems, etc run with the conscensus as to whether one believes the consensus is truth.
I think Omar's use of the word "correlation" which has a generally accepted meaning but also has specific meanings in math and science, has thrown understanding his point to the side line
I think you read it wrong. The "other statement" is true, but for Christians. Nowhere did I see it said by naegleterp that it was true for all. In fact it is categorically untrue for many others.
Yep, the jaw bone of an ass did some damage. But as usual, a woman caused his downfall.
Well you know how it ends, so there can be no spoilers...!
That was about as powerful a presentation of the crucifixion as I've ever seen. Really well done. Oh, I'm probably switching to GoT at the top of the hour, and I'll catch the last hour of the Bible when I can.
Since I've spent my entire career working in research centers I feel like I know how research is done and I know the kind of people who do research. There really is no debate among climate scientists regarding global warming. I'm not a climate scientist so I choose to believe the experts. I don't think I know something about climate science that climate scientist don't know. And working with Ph.Ds all my life, I'm certain there is no global conspiracy to sell us a lie. I do view this as a separate issue from the political solutions to the problem. My personal bias is in favor of science and against dogma.
I haven't seen the show yet, but I'm thinking the last episode should be a live broadcast if they're doing the whole Revelations thing.
As an agnostic, I watched the Jesus years of "The Bible" with an open mind. I can now honestly say that I enjoyed the episodes immensely, but they did nothing for me either way in pushing me further in my beliefs.
The fact of the matter it, without the resurrection of Jesus, all who believe, are just fools. If Jesus truly did resurrect, all who don't believe are fools too. No agenda here, just the facts.
I certainly hope no one would change their beliefs based on a tv show.
Yeah, you should definitely at least read the book before looking into changing your beliefs:
A Story Of God And All Of Us
A Novel Based on The Bible TV Miniseries
Official Resource Provider for the History Channel THE BIBLE TV series produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The Bible Series products include exclusive books, and small group materials at the lowest prices
The Stations of the Cross was something I had never given much thought to until then.
I would venture to bet that there were countless people who watched "The Bible" looking for answers. I'm not one of them, but just an observation. Was it a TV show, loosely based on the bible, or was it a tv show that tried to depict the stories of the bible as close to the actual scriptures themselves? Particularly the Jesus years, with the realization the gospels have differing accounts of some of the details of his life.
No doubt. I would hope the process is something like this...
I have questions
watch the tv show
intrigued, confused, more questions
research, discuss with educated people that can answer your questions
come to your own conclusion
You can't be serious?
I had a pretty religious day, and watching The Bible capped it all off. Performed Mass for the residents at a local nursing home and had a big turn out + gave 6 resident comunion in their rooms, they are always so appreciative that it moves me that someone like me that knows so very little of the Catholic ways can make these folks smille and really thank me (converted to Catholic in 2000 and missed the upbringing).
Then went with the family to Mass. I'm so glad that I came back to going to Church some 20+ years ago, I get a great deal out of going, which isn't all that often since I count my efforts at the nursing home once or twice a month as double a church visit. I always have to be careful in Church cause a lot of the music makes my eyes get wet.
