Well said, Pac.

 Religions are merely codified organized means of approaching the problems of dealing with one's fellow man.  Rules for living, one might say.  And since one of the 'Rules for Living' is to not take your neighbor's stuff or any stuff that isn't yours--I vote that stealing is more wrong than blowing your winnings.

Planet of the Apes - 1968

I remember when I first saw this movie many years ago. I was very young and didn't know the frality of man.  It's funny how a message like this will blow you away when you are young. 

Cornelius: [reading from the sacred scrolls of the apes] Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

 Then when it was remaded in 2001 - It had been Holiwoodized and lost this message.  I thought about this when I heard ya'll arguing about religion.

What about the Ape's Sacred Scrolls?LOL  After all we are primates.   Ya'll think these apes were on to something?

    Why do people always have to instill religious crap on everyone?

    Religious CRAP???Eek  Are you referring the 10 commandments/BIBLE as religious crap?If so thats very disrespectful.Learn some respect pal.Stealing is wrong,and those who steal have sinned.Those who have done these acts can ask god for forgiveness. But to call the 10 commandments/Bible "religious crap"?Eek.That itself is also a sin.Also if you steal lotto tickets thats also called cheating.  CHEATERS NEVER WIN!

    Yes, the 10 commandments are religious crap for people who doesn't care about your religion.

    Both you and your religion get the respect it deserves. If you kept your mouth shut about your religion, both you and your religion would get more respect.

      Great quote, Tenaj.  I loved that movie!  Going back a little further, it was "The Day The Earth Stood Still" that first had that effect on me.   

      Klaatu:  "The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly."

        "The Day the Earth Stood Still" is a great movie Justx and is in the process of being remade in 2008.  Scheduled to be released  12 December 2008.

          I didn't know.  I hope they don't ruin it with too many special effects.  I really liked the classic movie.  I felt really good knowing Patricia Neal was going to dump the idiot she was engaged to! Here's the trailer.

            Yeah it's being re-made as we speak Keanu Reeves will play Klaatu.  I don't think the trailer is out yet but it's being filmed at the University of British Columbia.

            Yes Patricia Neal did a good job in that movie.  She said that a big girl that lived across the street from her when she was 3 years old grapped her by the throat and choked her and that's the reason for her distinctive voice.   The "Fountain Head" was the last movie I saw her play in.

              I don't remember that one.  I know she had a tough life, first losing a child and then having a bad stroke.  I liked her and Paul Newman in Hud.

                She played with my man Gary Cooper in the Fountain Head.  I think you would like it.  The role she played in Hud was written for a black maid --- but they didn't want a white man being seen raping a black maid.  Not in 1963.  I think she go best something for that.  It took me 3 times to watch Hud.

                Brandon De Wilde that played Paul Newman's brother in Hud is the same little fellow who played the boy in Shane.  He had gotten a little older in Hud.  "Shane, Come back"

                  I Agree!You said that so eloquently!

                  A companion to stealing is lying:

                  If a person steals they also lie!

                  Conversely:

                  If a person lies they also steal!

                  I Agree!
