The God DelusionA. ReactionAfter I had watched The God Delusion, my belief and faith does not changed. Evendespite the fact that Richard Dawkin was good in expressing the side of theatheist; and he amazed me when he said that he is proud on being an atheist, theywere proud, standing tall to face the far horizon, and atheism nearly indicates ahealthy independence of mind also a healthy mind itself. I admitted that everyonehas an option on what they should believe and I respect the atheist on what theybelieved. I don’t know what was the reason in all of that kind of documentary,maybe they want to gathered more followers in their group, and I respect that!But me I will not and I will never change what I believed in. Because I know mySavior is. I accepted him as my Creator and Savor. For the documentary, it wasgreat, actually it makes me scared a bit because of the transition, the way howRichard Dawkin talked, and even the sound effect. Over all that was great and goodthan other documentaries.
B. SynthesisThe God’s Delusion by Richard Dawkin tackles about Science and Religion,Homosexuality and Atheism, and Reason and Faith. About science and religion in hisbook The God Delusion, he stated that there are lots of people out there who havebeen brought up in some religion or other, are unhappy in it, or are worried aboutthe evils that are done in its name; people who feel vague yearnings to leave theirparents’ religion and wish they could, but just don’t realize that leaving is an option.Religion is not the root of all evil, for no one thing is the root of all anything.Science that extremely simple computational models can generate what appears tobe arbitrarily complex output. For that matter, the creation of the universe at thebig bang is now thought by some physicists to have been the result of a quantumfluctuation. Dawkins argument is also strangely reminiscent of the many attemptsby creationists and intelligent design writers to apply probability arguments in thescience-religion debate. One of the fallacies common to both Dawkins argumentand those of the creationist-intelligent design camp is to overlook the fact that anenormous ensemble of potential outcomes might equally fit the overall objective,and so to attempt to calculate the probability of a single configuration (whether itbe a protein, an organism or even the entire universe) is highly misleading. For me,religion is not the one who will save us; it is that if we accept that there is God andif we accept that God is our savior then we will be saved. There are many peoplewho know, in their heart of hearts, that they are atheists, but dare not admit it totheir families or even, in some cases, to themselves. Partly, this is because thevery word ‘atheist’ has been assiduously built up as a terrible and frightening label.We all know that cause even us, when we heard atheist we were frightened andscared. In his book also discusses homosexuality. The status of atheists in Americatoday is on a balance with that of homosexuals fifty years ago. The reason so manypeople don’t notice atheists is that many of them are unwilling to ‘come out’. Hisdream is that his book may help people to come out. Exactly as in the case of thegay movement, the more people come out, the easier it will be for others to jointhem. There may be a critical mass for the initiation of a chain reaction. In thispart, he amazed me again; he is not reluctant to come out, he was so proud to beatheist.
EXAMReactionThe exam was worth giving a time to watch. If there is only a commercial, that willbe the time for me to go to the comfort room because every single action that wasdone by the characters was quite exciting. It has really something to do with Logic.When the time started to run, it’s getting more exciting. When Brown tortured hisco-examinee, I was shocked because I don’t like to watch movie that has somethingto do with torturing and also bloody movies. That was an intense. And this shows inthe performances, which centre on surface, physical expression. At least theyreextremely well-done, and they give the limited setting more motion and interest.Especially if youre paying attention and figure out some of the storys tricks alongthe way, and there are a lot of twist. And I all laugh when the last standingcharacter revealed that the answer to the question is no. And it makes merealized; when the proctor said that there is only one question and one answer. Insome view, sometimes I thought it was pointless but I realized that the movie hassomething to do with Logic and it was logic itself.
