Someone get to Flash Gordon yet? Incredible soundtrack (by Queen). Amazing visuals. Train wreck of a script.

Never understood the love for that soundtrack, among other issues the main theme is just stupid.

The law and morality are structured as though we do. There's not much point in assuming otherwise.

That our current flawed legal and moral systems are structured as though free will exists is, in my opinion, the very reason it is essential to reject the assumption that it is true. In my opinion, the belief in free will underlies some of our basest instincts: those toward vengeance, intolerance, and hatred. In my own experience, a lack of belief in free will has led me to a more humane and tolerant understanding of human behavior and a preference for a restorative system of justice free of vengeance.

Ohhhh, I think this is what Redamare was trying to say that I didn't understand earlier.  Yes, I agree with this.  Similarly, my understanding of how fallible human beings are when it comes to believing things leads me to be more tolerant of people who believe things I think are so clearly not true, like homeopathy, religions, etc.  Humility leads to tolerance.

You failed to mention the infamous brachiation scene with the summoned squad of simians.  That and the fridge puts it well below 3.  I am still wrestling with how I feel about 2.  It is just so shitty to so many people.

Has this conversation reminded anyone else of BF Skinner's 'Walden Two'.
