I believe it was joefavs (on twitter) who said “I don’t see the point in doing Lost in Space if you aren’t going to make it campy as hell,” and I’m inclined to agree.

I only watched the first five episodes of the original series (not counting the pilot), so I never really experienced the infamous campiness. I was just hoping for a genuine sci-fi series featuring likable characters lost in space; this doesn’t deliver in any respect.

Watched the first episode of Netflix’s Lost in Space last night. Didn’t care for a thing I saw — not the characterization, not the character interaction, not the plot, and not the tone. Meh all around.

What this thread brings to my mind: a discussion between three people — a man who speaks modern American English, a man who speaks middle English, and a man who speaks Engrish. There’s some level of mutual intelligibility, but truthfully, they don’t understand each other at all and likely never will.

Since God dwells within everyone*, everyone has a relationship with God, regardless of whether they’re aware of it or not, whether they believe or disbelieve.

That’s my 2¢ opinion, anyway.

*Everyone born with a conscience, anyway.

I don’t like the idea that conscience is related to God. I’m very secular in morality. The idea that we need God at all to be empathetic people is, in my opinion, unfair.

I believe God is love, and I believe that love permeates the universe, and us in turn. It’s an innate attribute of our being; our ability/inability to recognize the source is immaterial.

I ain’t the most loving guy, in case you haven’t noticed, but I like to think that I behave ethically and decently toward others at least most of the time in spite of my horrible character flaws.

And I believe those feelings ultimately stem from God, even though you don’t believe or care for God. But that’s only what my personal zeitgeist’s led me to believe; I won’t presume there’s any objectivity to my worldview.

Anybody have any thoughts on pantheism?

Pantheism might’ve been swell at some point, back when the static universe theory held sway. In light of Big Bang cosmology, though, and the heat death of the universe? I don’t see the appeal.

Panentheism’s what I go for.
