Hey bible-thumper, just post the whole passage would ya?
"God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."
Interesting. But even more interesting when read in conjunction with John 4:22:
"You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews."
"A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."
If you've ever tried to make bread before, you know this is only true if you take the time to whisk the dry ingredients first to spread the yeast out evenly. Otherwise, you get dry floury patches. I prefer "one bad apple spoils the whole bunch, girl".
(EDIT: Throwing around verses is fun! No wonder rabbis do this all day.)
what ideas does "dude where's my car?" send into your psyche? how about the simpsons?
it's entertainment. if you look for deep ideas in entertainment i can make a matrix philosophy thread for you.
Come on Zahlanzi, you know as well as I do that "Dude Where's My Car?" is an easy strawman target, precisely because: (1) it had no message to deliver beyond Aston Kutcher face; and (2) it wasn't that funny. What about George Carlin? Bill Hicks? Richard Pryor? South Park?
EDIT: Moreover, the "depth" of the idea and the "depth" of the penetration aren't equivalent. The idea that there is no vengeful ghost watching you to make sure you don't masturbate or eat meat on Fridays isn't particularly "deep", but the converse is often held deeply within the psyche of the devoutly religious. A good comic can use this stuffiness against the stuffy by pointing out the inherent silliness of their stuffy stance. It's like mental judo, without the flashy duds.
