Uhm... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/25/10
You do know Maynard wrote this song about his Mother right. Not to Bash the religion. When he wrote this he was Confused and angry.
His mother who was devoted to Christianity all her life was caught in a horrible accident and was paralyzed. Yet she never stop believing. in fact her faith was stronger after the accident. Maynard. Confused about how she could praise some one for punishing her so severely while she was so devoted to God.
Its in the commentary people. i know maynard likes for people to Look past the simple words and find the deeper meaning. but this one was pretty fuckin obvious. he said enough about it in interviews and commentary.
Stop all this pointless fighting.
Maynard wrote songs about that too.
Passive. Maybe Listen carefully?
He Even says in the commentary he wasnt bashing a religion. he was "confused among hundreds of other emotions, anger of course. lots and lots of anger. but ive learned since to look past it."
Well dont even bother commenting against this if u r. i dont plan on coming back here. XD i dont like fighting over lyrics. i just saw this one was missing ALOT of the lyrics. like this site usually does. and as i was scrolling down to comment about it i saw all this bs.
So have a nice day.
hope u found the truth of my Information Helpful.

To Mark Turner:
Maynard has a reason to be anti christian. his mother has been bed ridden and paralyzed from a disease (i dont remember what) since he was a child. He watched her wither and suffer his entire life. She is a diehard christian though and thinks its "meant to be" and "God has his reasons." Thats where the lines "He did it all for you" and "never thought to question why." If you were raised seeing that and thinking thats what God does to you, you'd have problems with it too.
Beside that, such an awesome song!!!

Love the music but it seems like someone having a grudge against Christianity; it is the easist religion to spit on because the vast majority of us WON't blow you up or riot in the streets if you give them crap. Which supporting the radical Muslims seems to be de riguer for the musical and Hollywood elite these days. As well as the media's part. Sign the petition at stopthemosque.com and stop be ing such an oprah, Obama-fied pussrag. Grow a spine.
Judith | Reviewer: Gary | 8/12/10
As was stated on the Amotion DVD released by the band, the song is about his mother suffering a stroke and being left paralyzed. The references to God and such are about his mothers undying faith and his inabilty to undestand how she can remain so faithful after what has happened to her.
I trust humanity. | Reviewer: Danté | 8/2/10
10 pages worth of people's ideology on this song, or, is it their ideology on theism?
Long story short; the truth is out there. Some call it science, some call it fate/faith, some call it God, some call it "there's nothing after death". But what we all have in common, as we all believe in something - even if we believe in Nothing, because, nothing is something right? Namely: Nothing.
My suggestion, follow what every holy scripture tried/tries to tell you in the first place; Follow the Golden and Silver rule.
G: Treat others as you would like to be treated.
S: Do not treat others in ways you would not like to be treated.
So much for ethics being plain simple, huh?
Human Beings | Reviewer: Marc | 7/29/10
I'm sick and tired of people trying to understand who or what God is. I'm not boasting, but I am confident that I have found the reality and secret of life.
I'm a catholic, but nonetheless, an agnostic (someone who doesn't believe in religion) in every way. I believe in the existence of a supreme, omniscient being (God) but unlike all those others out there, I don't make up bullshit about rules and regulations about God. The bible tells us the life of God and the persons involved with him. Personally, the bible is nothing but BULL! It is made by human hands, and the sad reality is, we are imperfect creatures yet we act as though we are perfect. Line up 20 people, tell the first one a secret and let them pass it along the next one, I guarantee you, the last person will not get the secret right, the same ideology goes with the bible. And for those who are strong believers of their religion, try weighing the pros and cons of that religion, try to think about what your religion has done to the world. I'll give you an example, muslims vs. christians, think about what their religions have done for them. Religion, once again is made by human hands, and conclusively, so are the rules and practices. I mean think about it, if God is an omniscient and all powerful being, why the F does he need priests to do his bidding and to spread his word? I just don't get the logic of it all.
To me, the secret of life is to just be happy, be as good as a person you can, I'm sure all of us knows by instinct whats right and wrong. Take in mind the song "young at heart", it has a lot more meaning than what most people think. And don't complicate your lives with what your religious leaders say, life is a lot easier to understand than you think.
To Anonymous from 7/24 | Reviewer: Narushatov | 7/28/10
I wouldn't say numerous at all when it comes to existing documents about Christ's existence. The one you are referring to (Tacitus), is debatable whether its part on Christ is authentic, since I don't believe we have an original and the one that has survived is a copy from many centuries after. And it obviously doesn't prove that it's the same kind of Christ from The New Testament. Same kind meaning the miracle-making, born of a virgin, son of/is God. And supposed biographers from decades later interviewing people I don't think can constitute as substantial enough evidence for someone being God. But anyway, you know this.
And as for the philosophy of Jesus of The New Testament, it is great. The moral teachings, though virtually impractical today, remain unmatched. But he also (according to that book) told people to leave their families (who knows what became of them) to follow him. He also said that we will burn if we do not believe in him. I can follow some things that Jesus of The New Testament said, I can follow the philosophy of Buddha, and I can even still enjoy the movie "Grease" even though Travolta is a Scientologist. Philosophy and art are one thing, absolutism is another.
The problem is that people do read the book as historical fact. They really do think Noah built a big and sturdy enough boat to house two of every single kind of creature on earth and then God, during one of his many temper tantrums, slaughters the very people he supposedly created. They hear this and nod their heads, like, "Yeah, of course... and?" And they don't question a word. Even question the rationality of such events. They say the biggest scapegoat word in all of religion: Miracle.
All right, done with the posting. No more retorts for me.
One last thing: whatever your belief or disbelief, "Judith" is a really good song. I definitely have faith in that fact.
Uhh | Reviewer: Isshin | 7/26/10

open your mind | Reviewer: Glenn David | 7/27/10
Great song and the video is not bad either. check it out on youtube.
Stop all your whinging about about GOD vs Evolution. God is a part of our evolution, a child like necessity we eventualy will grow out of. whoops Ive said to much. Enjoy life Be nice and love the music!
What?? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/24/10
Narushatov there are many historical non-christian documents (like Tacitus for examples) talking about Jesus and telling that he was a prophet killed by Pilatus. Christians were already numerous in Rome around 60. That people didn't hear the story from a 2000 years old book (considering also that Gospels have been written between 70 and 100). They talked with people that saw Jesus and told them the story. None of the books of that age (Roman, Greek and Jewish) that talk about Jesus ever mention the possibility that he was never existed. Now this doesn't mean, of course, that everything is written in the Gospels in true but anyway at least what is certain is that a certain Jesus has been around around 5 BC/BCE and 30 AD/CE.
About that, as a matter of fact, some of the texts I was referring claim that he wasn't anyway the Son of God and that his disciples stole his body to demonstrate his resurrection. This is where history ends and faith starts.
Anyway according to the Gospels Jesus talked essentially about how people should act with each other and those things are not related at all to evolution or any scientific evidence of it. Everything he said is still valid no matter what you believe about the origin of the universe and human kind. I think that is so wrong to consider Gospels and the rest of the Bible on the same level: Jesus is some thousands year ahead the rest of the Bible... but that is just my opinion. I think that believing in every single word of the Bible is probably wrong. The Bible is not an historical book, it doesn't have to be taken literally...
James, Interpretation... | Reviewer: Narushatov | 7/19/10
James, now listen, can you honestly believe that universe-creating, life-changing, human-creating EVENTS can be left to INTERPRETATION? From a BOOK, a BOOK, let me repeat again, a BOOK, from over TWO THOUSAND years ago? Based on NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, and scientific evidence not meaning "the Devil's work" but factual DATA.
James, I will offer you a counterpoint. You say you cannot refute the Bible if one has not read it (I have), so you cannot refute science if you do not know the FACTS, correct? And, my child, these facts are based on DATA, not a book that was written over two thousand years ago with the authors being who-the-hell-knows. Evolution is NOT a myth, my child. It's a fact.
And guess what, there is NO real evidence of Jesus Christ's existence. None. Zero. And, my child, the BIBLE itself does NOT include as evidence. That would be insanity. That would be the same as saying Aslan of Narnia exists because "it is written."
Please, please join the rational world...
WOW u are all lost | Reviewer: jamie | 7/18/10

Food for Thought | Reviewer: James | 7/17/10
A good quote from the bible in my modern interpretation is, Seek knowledge more than any other riches and you will find it.
I would not call myself religous. I try not to limit myself to strict "religous" standards as the world I have been born into seems to have few boundaries but more and more surprises. However I am a christian. I do not go to chruch because every church that I have attended fails my expectations. I also believe those who claim all religion is ignorant and that it is ignorant to believe in a god need to realize they are molding themselves into a "religion" a cult or whatever name you choose. The bible is a collection of books and in reading it, you should understand the time line of these books are without knowledge of modern discoveries. It has been harassed through numerous interpretations and illustrates a majority of ideas and points through metaphors. Page 1 of genesis says we were made from dust. Now we call it atoms and molecules. Page 1 also describes god creating the earth in stages through (and i hate to say it because of the popular connotation associated with the word) evolution. You will read that we are created in his image. My interpretation of "image" is not a picture of god (how could god be omnipresent and omnipotent if he is in a human state) but more of god's idea of us. Again these are my understandings.
My only true suggestion is to discover the world for yourself. You cannot disagree with the bible if you have never read it. It will be easier to read and understand if you do not maintain a biased opinion as you read it.
I have listed my name and email for those who would like to further this discussion.
If I can act better... | Reviewer: Narushatov | 7/8/10
I understand the need to believe in a God (I personally don't) but it confounds me that people believe in the God of the Bible.
Ask yourselves this: Could you act better than the God of the Old Testament? Would you not spare all those "sinners" and also not lead Moses in a Hitler-like slaughter campaign? Wouldn't you even act better than the God of the New Testament? Instead of "only through the son," why not just everyone?
God foresaw everything, right? He's omnipotent. So why is he judging us? "Free will" is your answer and that "we decide"? No. If God knows all, ALL, then there is no choice. You guys have to realize that paradox.
If I can act better than God does then there is no way I can believe in that kind of God. And if he really does exist, and he is the same God of the Bible, then there is no way I can love him, because, well, he's kind of a douchebag in that book, now isn't he? Satan was then really rebelling against a Tyrant. God slaughters people throughout that entire book. Point to one section, ONE, that Satan kills someone. There aren't any.
Think for yourself | Reviewer: Casey | 7/7/10
I belive in god less and less everytime i see and 8 year old kid with a walker. Call it a test of faith to plead your faith but hen you think about it logically it's bullshit. Believing in something is an excuse not to think. Further, a mans believes and morals from 2,000 years ago are no longer relevant. We have the technology to become great, the religous leaders are holding us back because it may prove their believes are bullshit.
