    1) Film is ultimately an expression of the society in which it was credited, and reflects the norms and ideals of the time and location in which it is created. In this sense, film is simply the evolution of myth. The technological aspect of film changes the way the myth is distributed, but the core idea of the myth is the same.

    2) Viracocha was the god of everything. In the beginning he was the main god, but when Pachacuti became Inca, he changed this god’s importance pointing out that it was Inti.

    Any quotes attributed to Jesus.
    —-
    Check out the Jesus Scholars/Jesus Seminars:

    The Jesus Seminar focused on the sayings attributed to Jesus. The scholars of the Seminar analyzed the likely authenticity of the more than 1,500 sayings attributed to Jesus in the gospels. The text of the sayings is color-coded red, pink, gray or black, according to the consensus of the scholars: red (Jesus undoubtedly said this or something like it), pink (Jesus probably said something like this), gray (Jesus did not say this, but the ideas are close to his own), black (Jesus did not say this; it represents the content of a later or different tradition).

    Fellows were permitted to cast ballots under two different options for understanding the four colors.

    Option 1

    red: I would include this item unequivocally in the database for determining who Jesus was.

    pink: I would include this item with reservations (or modifications) in the database.

    gray: I would not include this item in the database, but I might make use of some of the content in determining who Jesus was.

    black: I would not include this item in the primary database.

    Option 2

    red: Jesus undoubtedly said this or something very like it.

    pink: Jesus probably said something like this.

    gray: Jesus did not say this, but the ideas contained in it are close to his own.

    black: Jesus did not say this; it represents the perspective or content of a later or different tradition.

    One member suggested this unofficial but helpful interpretation of the colors:

    red: That’s Jesus!

    pink: Sure sounds like Jesus.

    gray: Well, maybe.

    black: There’s been some mistake.

    I can’t believe nobody has said the infamous Skunk Ape.

    Skunk Ape is a large hairy, bipedal mammal that calls the Florida Everglades home. They have been spotted as far north as Tallahassee and as far south as Lostman’s River. Large adult males reportably weigh in excess of 450 lbs and stand 6 to 7 feet tall. Some believe that this biped is part of the same species as the famed Big Foot.

    The smell of a Skunk Ape has been reported to be similar to rotten eggs or methane, possibly because, as some say, they hide in alligator dens filled with swamp gas and rotting animal cadavers.

    Whatever ya do, don’t give the tix to the guy who said the female orgasm is a myth. He clearly won’t know what to do with them.

  85. 85 Jordan Melnick said at 11:48 am on May 8th, 2012:
