RE: Let's grab the popcorn!!!
Anyone seen "Elegant Universe"? Its got lots to do with theories as much as proven science, so it could really make for some interesting discussion. Its quite a long program, but well worth the time.

I'd be game, although I would suggest that instead of us all asking questions, and Martin and Unbeliever answer them, that perhaps we could all contribute on an equal basis? Also, maybe we could choose the program, and give everyone, say, a week or so to watch it, then open the door to discussion. (It would definitely be interesting to have the discussion all together at the same time, I'm just suggesting we allow a wek to actually watch the program that we choose) That way we are not taking a whole afternoon, and leaving things a little more open to attract and accomidate more participants.

Just some suggestions.

Just visiting.

And they're all good ones. martin, what do you say?

I think that could be better, in order for most of us to participate. We can choose a film to watch every week and then debate. Of course this is completely different from what Martin suggested Tongue

I sure hope we aren't abandoning this idea just because Martin isn't around any more.

What does everyone else think? Who's in? Any other suggestions for movies?

I'm still in, although I'm blank idea wise.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

RE: Let's grab the popcorn!!!
How about this as a first idea? I just watched the movie The Road with Viggo Mortensen...it was dark, a post-apocalyptic movie.

I think there is a lot to discuss of it from a 'humanities' perspective. I don't want to go too much into this, maybe start a new thread just for the movie itself.

Anyone else see the movie? Anyone need to see it to participate in the forum?
