    Just goes to show how weak most human minds are. Yes I thought the FANTASY world of Pandora was beautiful. But at the same time I have seen places here on earth that are just as beautiful. Maybe if some of these "depressed" people actually went out into nature they could experience for REAL the beauty that exists here.

    As for the connection to nature theme in Avatar, that exists here as well, just not at quite the level as depicted in the movie. But many cultures already have philosophy based on the connection with the earth and all living things.

    I thought the movie was a wonderful visual experience in both animation, special effects and imagination. Did it depress me? No, but it did entertain me, which is what it's supposed to do. I really have to question the mental stability of people that are so emotionally affected by Science-Fiction-Fantasy.

    When people can't separate fiction from reality, you run into problems. They simply need a good kick in the butt and go for a damn hike somewhere nice.

    Sadly, these are the same idiots that make politicians create laws to "protect" them from their own minds.

    Get out of fantasyland. Anyone who gets to this level over a movie needs to get a life. It's just a movie, Stupids! And not a very good one at that.

    Yes Pandora was beautiful, although fictitious, and I have seen a few truly beautiful places on this earth but none of it will compare to what awaits us in heaven.

    Wow. Just, wow.

    At first, I thought, "These people are truly retards." But, then I thought, "Man, it's sad that these people lead such a crappy existance that they want to kill themselves because they can't live on Pandora." I felt bad for them. But, then I went back to thinking they were pathetic losers. Yeah, that's where I'm at now. They're pathetic losers.

    You have a good point. These same people would sit at their computers on Pandora and complain about the lack of Starbucks coffee houses or Wi-fi hotspots.

    However, not everyone has the opportunity. There is no natural beauty within an hour's drive (at least) of where I live (the Big City on the Prairie:supergrin:). The last time nature impressed me was when I drove to New Mexico on a long weekend. That was about a 12 hour drive. East Texas has some nice forests, but it's still between 2-4 hours to get from here to parks where camping/hiking is allowed.

    It's good that I am content to sit at a patio table drinking beer and watching girls :supergrin:
