I am not surprised by this. Reminds me of my thread in the politics forum about music and brainwashing americans.

http://www.christianforums.com/t59312&page=1

many people hate taken their lives after listening to rock songs over and over and over again. It is not a coincidence that movies and music make people take their lives, just satan getting his due if you know what I mean.

This is just to add fuel to the fire's of those people who blame video games, music, and I suppose now, movies, for societies wrongs. I bet if you ask them how to fix it, they'd say faith in Jesus.

What they ALL FORGET is the difference between the proximal and underlying cause of an event.

Is it the rock music or film that somehow forced them to do something...or is it that the individuals are insane and have lost touch with reality to the point where the film they view obsessively seems real to them? It would seem that the individuals own mental problems caused them to watch the movie over and over in the first place...not that it made them insane.

The point is... mental illness can have devastating effects upon individuals and society.

The film is a decoy

hi

This is easy, it's called there is spiritual influence behind movies, satan has influences behind movies, and those who subcumb to the evil spirits behind evil movies will be influenced , thats easy. So in other words lets quit watching evil movies.

While I never felt the urge to get posessed by satan after watching the Exorcist, I can see how easy it is for someone with a pre-existing mental condition to get wrapped up in a movie. My 11 year old son has bi-polar and an anxiety/thought disorder and let me tell you I have a hell of a time trying to calm him down if he so much as hears the news. He has a very hard time figuring out the difference between fiction and non-fiction, even commercials get his mind reeling. Living in a society that is so double minded doesnt help either.

let me answer that with a post from someone else in this thread

"This is easy, it's called there is spiritual influence behind movies, satan has influences behind movies, and those who subcumb to the evil spirits behind evil movies will be influenced , thats easy. So in other words lets quit watching evil movies."

and something i copied and pasted which explains it all with the key words "hypnotic tones and notes" (this is your answer)

Woodstock '99 & Phish

And for those interested in the Woodstock '99 - Phish connection:

FANS FIND SOMETHING FISHY ABOUT PHISH CONCERTS

DENVER (Wireless Flash) -- There's something fishy about the band Phish -- at least if you believe a man who's been to more than 30 of the group's psychedelic shows.

23-year-old Dan Hinman claims he's witnessed all sorts of odd behavior at the concerts and has concluded that the shows might be mind control experiments conducted by the government. Hinman says the band plays very unique hypnotic tones and notes which frequently transform the audience into a group of willing zombies.

Even more suspicious, the band has held several concerts at military bases where mind control projects are supposedly underway.

Hinman believes the government might be experimenting with a method to control the youth of America by making them more passive.

He claims the sad thing is that most Phish fans are so devoted to the band, they refuse to believe the concerts could be mind control experiments.

So far, Dr. John Coleman. It's not mentioned here, but the Rolling Stones were created from the same source and with the same purpose. Beatles were supposed to be the "good guys" while the Rolling Stones were the "bad guys". Also, Rolling Stones were experts in creating repeating "riffs", meaning a musical phrase that's looping over and over again (like in "Satisfaction", "Jumping Jack Flash" etc.). These repeating riffs triggers the mind and makes one receptive to whatever sub-message you want to transfer into the listener's minds. In the case of the Rolling Stones we have satanic messages in their lyrics, and they have repeated that over and over through the years (what about Bridge To Babylon, where Babylon is a satanic phrase within the Brotherhoods).

---------------------------------------- (THIS LINE PUT IN BY BUSHIDO216)

He claims the sad thing is that most Phish fans are so devoted to the band, they refuse to believe the concerts could be mind control experiments.
Okay, I split up this quote since I didn't feel like quoting twice, let's go over each bit in order, shall we?

I doubt Satan has influence in movies... That's just a cop out for when you have no real reason why a movie ought not be shown. And we've already gone over the fact that if a person who is mentally ill or unstable sees something like that, they might do something stupid. It's not because of the movie, it's because they're mentally ill or unstable.

Second, could that perhaps be because even Phish fans are smart enough to know that this is ****? And seriously, why is Hinman the only one who doesn't get his mind-controlled? Is he somehow special? Besides repeated psychological tests have shown that subliminal messaging doesn't work.
