Subject: The Twilight Zone
The Twilight Zone was Rod Serling's vision to transform small screen by telling some peculiar tales. His stories are all pregnant with immense existential value. I have watched first few episodes and each one of them contains a self-sufficient story, independent of other episodes. The episodes I have watched, deal very vividly with the matters like loneliness, old age, death and nostalgia.

The opening dialogue(monologue?) as every episode starts, in the voice of narrator Rod Serling is just mesmerizing:

Rod Serling wrote:
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call The Twilight Zone.


Rod Serling was writer and producer of this series and he had taken a great deal of risk when he decided to make something like this for TV. To narrate such ideas, on TV, in sixties, was very audacious and novel. I think he pretty much succeeded in what he was trying to accomplish: Entertaining me and you and all of us. Enjoy the series, with Black & White prints and consummate performers.

You really are delusional if you think that because I know what you are saying and understand it, that I agree with you. For all your preaching you still don't understand what you are posting, and that is sad for you.

What you fail to understand is that I am putting down some of the writings in the bible that are attributed to Paul and Jesus. There is a lot that has been falsified and corrupted in the service of the Church. I will believe what Paul and Jesus actually said when I find it. But you, with your blind faith in a corrupted book, are the least able to show me that truth

sunlight didn't say anything about you agreeing or not agreeing, doc. he said that understanding is progress, and that is true. of course understanding is not the same as agreeing, and he didn't suggest otherwise.

can't we all just get along? shaking head

Ask Sunlight, He has been hostile to me for a long time now, so this is an old disagreement. When he starts honestly preaching the Bible, we could possibly get along, but as long as he is false to Christianity, I will be critical.
