Post Re: Twilight
Ok... To start out I guess I'll ask what you guys think about the book. Do you think It will be boring, entertaining, scary, sad, ect.

I can go ahead and say that I think its a great book. The whole vampire thing is kind of wierd and it accually would normally be in my choose range, but the message is good. It's a really nice love story and without the vampires it wouldn't be so interesting. :up:

Post Re: Twilight
i can't say that the message is good at all.

It's about the worst example of cradle robbing i can think of where a centuries old vampire, or old man in other words, whose defining cheracteristics seem to be the immaculateness of his statuesque visage, the sparkliness of his skin and his overt predatory, possesive nature latches onto a shadow of a girl whose life is defined by being a trophy and subject of pre-pubescent lust.

She is a weak, and pitiful example for young girls.

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.
