In which a middle school level book about Albert Einstein and his curious niece perfectly handles the God vs Science issue with no problem whatsoever:
He sat back in his armchair with a look of supreme satisfaction. “To think - the Universe was created with a Big Bang.”
"Thought God was supposed to have created everything."
"Possibly. But how did he do it? That’s what we’re asking.”
-Black Holes and Uncle Albert, Russell Stannard
We’re watching Bill Mahr filming an HBO special live, and I am bewildered by how many people in the audience are yelling out. He’s had to stop the special to address an interruption at least 5 times. He finally resorted to practically handing a mic to an audience member as if he was in a dirty backroom comedy club on amateur night. This is unacceptable. If you’re in the audience for a comedian, you can either laugh, clap, or be silent. That’s it. Calling out is unacceptable unless the entertainer engages you directly. And if you’re at a live filming for a TV special, even more so.
So the new Batmobile has a huge machine gun, front and center. My excitement over Batman vs Superman, which was almost non-existent to begin with, just waned ever more.
why does the batmobile having a gun affect your opinion of the movie as a whole
Because Batman doesn’t kill. And here we have a completely militarized Batmobile. Snyder justified Superman killing (and letting thousands of innocent people die) in Man of Steel by saying that Superman was just learning his power and responsibilities. But supposedly the Batman in the new movie will be an older incarnation, who understands exactly who he is and what his moral responsibilities are. Why is a gun front and center on the car?
