Great speech from someone who has done more to promote the scientific method, critical thinking, and skepticism than most of us.
“If this is your God, he’s not very impressive. He has so many psychological problems; he’s so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes. He’s a pretty poor excuse for a Supreme Being.”
— Gene Roddenberry
Ugh. There’s frothy mixture all over the rocky mountain states this morning.
Sometimes, the jokes make themselves.
He’s worth more to me alive!
The first thing I noticed - and object to the most - is that Leia is wearing her slave bikini while Han is in carbonite. She didn’t get that until she let him out.
A sweet .sig I found.
But I bet Optimus Prime believes in evolution and global warming :I
Eh, Optimus Prime doesn’t believe in evolution. In the comics, Optimus Prime has met his supernatural creator, and he carries His lifeforce around in his chest. And in the cartoon, Optimus Prime knows he was built by Quintessons and that you get more Transformers by asking a golden disco ball. There is no breeding or mating on Cybertron, and thus no evolution.
Optimus Prime is pretty aware, however, that a planet’s dominant species can destroy its ecosystem! That’s why he’s on Earth and not home!
Actually, while looking into the matrix to learn how to deal with the new ‘Cybertronians’ (Generation 2), Prime witnesses one Transformer ‘give birth’ to another, and learns that the Transformers do, actually, evolve.
