Wings Of Light
Quietly turn on the power switch the monitor slowly become brighter. In a virtual city where you find a place to rest your mind. The machine's sound making the gentle summon. Abandoned the imperfect reality of body flesh, leap out the windows of reality. Open the transparent wings and fly towards the moon. Search the perfect of a worldly paradise. Across the world till its end by following my hunches. Rode on fantasy's wind and scattered countless of light.

Knowing VS City of Ember, Believer VS Non-Believer



Recently I've watched 2 movies which I think actually have opposite opinions in religion.

Let me briefly tell the story of Knowing and City of Ember:

Knowing - Lucinda the little girl can heard the alien voice and write down some numeric in a piece of paper which later discover by Cage. Cage discover actually these numbers are related to many important disasters on earth, and the last date is the disaster that end all man kind. There is no way this disasters or the end of earth can be stopped. The only way is to listen it and to accept it.

City of Ember - Doon and Harrow notice the Ember City is start to become old and shortage of daily supplies and electricity. They went to investigate to find out the truth which is forbidden by this city members as it is the tradition that nobody goes out or question the city builder. They soon find out actually the no longer exist city builder already planned the city will be expired after 200 years, and he already prepared the escape plan, just nobody ever notice it. With courage and curiosity, Doon and Harrow went to find out the escape route to the outer world.

By reading the synopsis, have you get the idea what this 2 movies are talking about? Knowing is saying everything is planned by God and nothing you can do to change it, even the list of people who can enter heaven are listed long time ago (I knew this cause I was a christian before).

City of Ember is saying regardless who build this world, when this world is in danger, the only way to solve it is by investigate, find out the problem and fix it. Praying the God, singing to the God or just stand there reading the God's Holy Book will not help the world at all, action talk louder than voice.

Personally my stand is on City of Ember, I believe the world can only be saved if we take action together, not waiting the dooms day come and let alien fetch my kid away. I don't believe the kid will ever happy in the new Garden of Eden, do you feel happy if alien bring you away from your parents where you know they will all die except you?
