This link has been sitting in my “to blog about” folder for a while. It neatly sums up my feelings concerning the media warriors and their interpretations of the facts surrounding us.
I hate being lumped in with a group and then told what I think. The problem stems from the old quote attributed to Benjamin Disraeli, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” Give me enough data and I can prove anything, or at least seem to prove anything. Correlation does not imply causality, and just because Chronicles of Narnia did so well worldwide is not because we are all secretly seeking our savior.
What would Aslan do? Aslan would probably tell us to go jump off a cliff. Sometimes a movie is just a movie.
I wonder what it means that I’m such a big fan of Forrest Gump?
