Spielberg's "Taken"
    #1096428 - 11/29/02 06:02 PM (14 years, 12 days ago)

Oh boy! Just what we need - another Sci-fi show to feed into the paranoia of susceptable minds.

Yes folks, more repressed memories surfacing, more people feeling that they are the special ones, more excuses to do extreme acts (I was guided by the Reptialians to poison the Senator) or whatever.

I can hardly wait. *Plops into favorite recliner with sounds of popcorn popping in the background*

The proof is in the pudding.

Heh... I thought it was called "Taken"?

I'm afraid to watch it because I think it's going to brainwash me, like everything else on TV... it seems to portray aliens in a negative fashion. Maybe Spielberg is a 33 degree Mason.  :ooo:

It's a movie for Christ's sake.

more excuses to do extreme acts...

Please direct me to any reports of people doing "extreme acts" and blaming it on aliens.

I am not sure if they were "directed", but the Heaven's Gate suicides were most certainly linked to belief in being "special" or "chosen" and an alien Mothership.

Spielberg sucks. "AI" was ridiculous and boring in my opinion. I blame it all on Steve. They say Minority Report is good though... might be, I haven't seen it. Oh, the topic is not Spielberg. sorry.

Anyone who claimed aliens forced/told them to do something in real life would be quickly shuffled off to an insane asylum.

I don't think that excuse holds up in court.  :smirk:

Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Pat Robertson regularly and publicly claims that the ultimate alien, God, speaks to him. As punishment, his flock sends him millions of dollars (presumably for psychiatric treatment.)

I should put on a real looking alien costume and abduct people I don't like after drugging them so that the next day they can be put into an insane asylum.

:laugh:
