Roger Ebert On Life And Death

I'm only familiar with Roger Ebert from his days with the late Gene Siskel. I've never given him much thought because I've only heard him talk about movies and not anything--dare I say?--really meaningful. Today I came across a blog entry of his where he contemplates something really meaningful.

In the entry he mentions an entry he made last December 3. It's actually a spot-on rip into Ben Stein and his movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

And for an interesting experience, try the religion/belief test he mentions.

Deep stuff. My 8-year old and I had a discussion about death not too long ago. Took every ounce of parental gumption I had to keep it together. One part of you wants to lie your ass off "no honey, you aren't going to die" or "There will be puppies and all the ice cream you can eat!" but in the end I had to level with him "I don't know, and it scares me too."
