The Art of Redemption Radio -Where we Bring a Christian Worldview to the Arts

 

In this show the hosts Cody Anderson, Daniel Uptain, and Roy Uptain examine the Arts from a biblical perspective. We take on many different philosophical and theological views and line them up with The Scripture. We pull out the error and fallacy of the secular worldview that lies within all forms of The Arts.

These areas of The Arts include but are not limited to: movies, music, literature, paintings, drawings, digital, and graphic design.

 This weeks episode we break from the characters in the Watchmen story to introduce to you Alan Moore, the author of Watchmen.

We dive into this mans ideas and his thinking through an interview by DAVID PESCOVITZ in 2011. As we listen in on this interview we talk about some of the things he says and believes and how that not only effects his worldview and philosophies but also how  it come across in his characters in the graphic novel and movie. 

Creator of art always include within their art their presuppositions and worldview and Alan Moore in no exception. Honestly he is a fool and an evil man. When we live a life devoid of God it leads to these kinds of absurd ideas and beliefs. Without faith we cannot explain God or anything no matter how much knowledge we have "gained". 

Listen in and be sure to engage us in some dialog on Facebook or twitter!

In this weeks episode we continue the Watchmen series with another popular worldview: Utilitarianism. This worldview takes life and decisions and puts them into a math equation (Three minute video) to try and figure out if a decision is going to be better for more or less people if it is done or not.

This idea leads to a thinking of one death is worth it if a mass number of people can avoid having headaches or be inconvenienced. This worldview takes life and in essence devalues it in comparison to a "greater good".

The idea that one man can know that his mass killings of millions will be more beneficial to the "greater good" is impossible. A person would have to be all-knowing, in all places, and be all-powerful, i.e. God. As people we are limited by our own downfalls in these areas. We cannot and will not be God, though, that is really what the utilitarian places themselves in the position of, claiming to know that the outcome is going to be for the better of all.

Except we cannot account for all things as Adrian Veldt did not account for Rorschach journal being dropped off at the newspaper office, which would lead to the exposing of Adrians plan.

Man is depraved and no matter what we think we have done to defeat it the best possibility is all we did was postpone it for a very short time. Only Christ can cure the depravity of the human heart, only The God of Creation can make all things new...

This week we start a new series based on the graphic novel Watchmen, by Alan Moore and David Gibbons. As we dive into this series we will be looking into 6 characters and the worldviews that they are communicating through this Novel.

This Novel is on the New York Times top 100 best novels ever. It has been awarded the Hugo award in 1988, an award for the best science fiction story. 

The story and characters in this novel are worth looking into for the reason that there are many ways that these worldviews are personified as people that are relatable and almost tangible.

What is the big idea? As we go through this series we will take apart these world views and the characters that portray them and point out the inconsistencies and mishaps that they cannot hold to.

This week we look into the Comedian and his worldview of Nihilism. Nihilism is a the rejection of all religious and moral principles, often in the belief that life is meaningless. We see this life lived out through the character known as the Comedian or Edward Blake. His early murder in the book leads to what seems a series of events that uncovers a plot to destroy a massive portion of mankind. Once this plot is found out by the Comedian he snaps and cannot handle is, therefore in essence not being consistent to his worldview. He also fails to hold to his world view in relationships. If he held to it consistently he would not have wanted a relationship with his superhero daughter. He remains consistent with the vietnamese woman when he leaves Vietnam after shooting her for cutting his face.

Nihilism cannot be held to consistently, much like any other false worldview, because it cannot hold together in the way that we as people were created by God. This goes against God and how He has designed us. Listen in to hear this episode and stay tuned for the rest of the series...

As we close out this series on Mysticism we take a look into the multi-million dollar money maker series of the Star Wars franchise and talk about the underlying worldview given in these movies, but also how they can't hold true to that worldview to the end.

Also, Cody has some sort of epiphany about Star Wars he has never realized before, thanks to doing this podcast and really thinking about what it is goes into our eyes and mind.

When we look into this movie series we can see that there is the good side (light) and the bad side (dark) and they battle in these movies but the light always wins. Why is that? It is not consistent with  the ideal and worldview even adhered to by the characters in the movie. They cannot hold to this worldview because it would make bad film.

We talk about a specific idea in a conversation between Yoda and Anakin Skywalker that love leads to attachment, attachment to fear, fear to jealousy, jealousy to anger, anger to the dark side. Love is what leads Anakin to the dark side but also what draws Darth Vader back from the dark side. A confusing and inconsistent idea we hash out.
