Remember the Commodore 64? 

 Heres Captain Kirk selling computer hardware back in the 80's. You may not have realised but........ Starfleet didn't pay him any money you know. Truth be told judging by his attire, I'd say William Shatner was stuck for a few quid in the 80's. I mean no offense to our hero but just look at how hes dressed, LOL oh well, thanks for the laughs Captain.

 Maybe if I rip the fun out of him enough, William Shatner will comment???

I can think of a few Arthur Daley types I've met in my life... present company excepted. There are those who choose to mix science with religion. This type of fundamentalism is distorted and illogical in my view and heres why. 

Whenever a matter of contention has to be settled, its easier to dismiss a serious issue and get folks to believe.... in a specific type of brainwashing called fundamentalism because there are some LEADERs who say.... thats Gods will. 

Who said: What does God want with a starship?

Yes, my friends believe it or not there are leaders, politicians who confuse religion with science...but not Captain Kirk. A true Scientist will never use God and expect you to accept his belief in order to win a debate.

Theres many types of fundamentalism today. Humanism, Polytheism, Christianity Judaism, the Bible, Quran and even the Star Trek Bible

The important thing here is a fundamentalist wants you to believe in his belief... and if Religion comes in handy "we'll dismiss science and go with that"

So now he wants us to believe.... without any proper investigation, analysis or exploration of the facts.... 

At least we know Captain Kirk is a courageous explorer with a curious mind and honest. The dude has style along with 100's of other sci fi super heroes.

Trust Captain Kirk! Who's your favourite leading actor or actress?

Live Long and Prosper

Fundamentalist anythings scare the crap out of me. And sadly their breed is reproducing faster than rabbits.

But that was the look in the '80s. It could have been worse. Have you seen what they wore in the '70s?

Dude had to make a living.
Fortunately creation can be proved by science, so I can rely on both my faith and on science.

Susan Kane said...

Oh, the humanity of Commodore 64. Where did it go? Did the 80s clothes look that bad??

With Alex here.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Liz is right - the 70's looked worse. Although the mullet was pretty bad.

I think Shatner was very happy with his '80s change of fortune. He was doing terribly after the end of the original series. Lived out of his car, I believe, at one point.

That "what does God need with a starship" scene is a great moment in an underrated Star Trek film. If your belief system can be knocked down by a simple question, then there's something fundamentally wrong (pun intended) with your belief system.
