Quote# 10441

I was an original reader of the Fantastic Four (early to late sixties) as a child. Let it slide for 38 years, and picked it up again after the movie came out to see what had changed. I wanted to love it, cause I'd loved it as a kid, but the in-your-face occultism and insults to God were overwhelming. Galactus, for one thing, calling himself the alpha and the omega. Reed getting heavily involved in magic, etc. I thought, perhaps, things had changed over time, but when I checked out the very early versions (the ones I'd loved as a kid) the inclusion of and promotion of evolution was pretty strong. I was so disappointed because I remember many happy afternoons with the FF as a kid.

I finally think I'm getting it! All the adults around me used to shake their heads and warn about comic books when I was a kid.

Probably becuase you spent too much time reading them and not enough time on your homework. Specifically your science homework more than likely.

Okay, I could potentially buy the whole \"Batman is Gay\" argument, I mean why else would he have dressed Robin up in pair of short-shorts and tights, but this 'Fantastic Four Occuly' shit is just ridiculous!

Its amazing how often sci-fi geeks know nothing about science.

Triumph for fundamentalists everywhere - their evil plan is finally paying off......

Isn't it sad that reading FF comics that \"promoted evolution\" was the closest thing he ever got to a scientific education?

It's sad to think that this person's literary and scientific sophistication were proportionately greater when he was six than they are now.

What a shame faline wasn't raised on those high-quality, comics by Jack Chick.

Well Galactus was around at the Big Bang (the Alpha) and would be around at the Big Crunch (The Omega). So he was just telling the truth.

Galactus, for one thing, calling himself the alpha and the omega.

So what? He's just a character. From now on, we can also follow his name with a (pbuh).

It's a comic book.
You're an idiot.
Any questions?
