[quote=Mike_Olson]When put that way no saying it’s just fiction isn’t enough. It is a shame that so many may be fooled.:bigyikes:
You’re right…it’s really sad. I guess I never realized how few people are ever taught to think critically…or how many choose not to do so. People accept without question things they read, especially those things that are popularized.
I started reading…and now that I realize how much I never bothered to question in my lifetime…well…lets just say I’m catching up on 15 years or so of “critical thinking” for myself.
Ironically I had highschool teachers and profs in college that did their best to make us think critically…now here I am realizing that I never followed their advice…until this book offended me so much.
I never read the book…I tried to pick it up but it made my soul hurt so I had to put it down. I do really encourage anyone to find the good sources refuting the book…we all need to be ready for the movie to come out.
I hate to say this but I may actually see the movie…it’ll be shorter than the book so less torture…and then I’ll be directly ready to refute it.
I hate the idea of paying money for garbage I KNOW is garbage…but at the same time, I also know that if I’ve seen it I can catch the wave of people and by the grace of God help to stop the figurative tide.
On the other hand, we can all just pray that it completely flops and America has an instant conversion.
OK, sorry about the ramble. It’s a very bad habit of mine!
