Anyone see this? While we were debating religion and its place on the threads, I was reminded of this movie. One of the ideas put forth by one of the characters was the having a belief is not a good thing. People will kill for their beliefs, and die for them. Beliefs are immutable, complete, absolute. And we as humans cannot comprehend the true nature of God, but we can certainly have ideas. The movie ends with another character being asked if she has found her faith. "No," she responded, "but I have a good idea." I'm not explaining it well. I really liked the movie though. If you like Kevin Smith films, it's definitely worth a watch.

Wouldn't we as humans be much happier and at peace if we viewed our spirituality in the context of ideas rather than hard and fast beliefs?

Gingerleigh:

What is the name of the movie? I love to watch movies. Sounds good.

Also, you have a good and valid point in the belief vs. ideas statement. But I myself have a very strong belief.

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.

I'm a dork. Sorry! The movie is Dogma. It's got a lot of potty words in it (giggle) but the dialogue is quick, sarcastic and intelligent.
