Fame. Is it the new religion?

Post by TalkingPoint » Tue Aug 05, 2003 4:50 pm

Fame. Is it the new religion? People used to worship god(s); now they worship film stars, sports players, princesses and pop singers. In the past people respected faith, now they respect fame.

Fame - Religion?

If fame is the new religion, then we can take comfort in the fact it will not last long. I think we are all entiled to our fifteen minutes of fame (religion)?

I don't really think it is true. Most people like to be famous, but the way to do it is very hard.
In a religion you pray to God, you with your community participate in many activities and you care for the well-being of others; if you had the fame of a god, you would only think of yourself.

I agree with this opinion. Some people do everything to become fame. All these reality shows - take part to them is means five minutes of flame. It is horrible. kemfisz

I don't think so. Fame doesn't last but religion endures...

I partially agree. First, thinking of myself and only myself isn't a new thing. Yet, in these generations, this attitude is more evident. I also agree in the fact that it's ephemeral, it doesn't last (thank heaven!). What I'd say is that people forget religion for their proud. However, these selfish people can't neither worship themselves nor talke a look at someone else.

They're going nuts!!! :roll:

i think people now desire to have the FAME bcos they see the power and money in that kind of thing.
some seem to admire crazily a film star or a pop singer. but they can change their mind in a moment. so this can't prove that people love fame. if they love fame, they want themselves to be famous, not those strange stars.

fame and us....

Post by Anin » Tue Apr 19, 2005 1:46 pm

I think not all the people desire to be famous, some of them are even afraid of it. But, what attracts them is money and a comfortable life without any fears or worries. In Slovakia, has recently ended one TV singing competition. And the attitudes of the main protagonists were various. Some of them had been happy about it, the others were bothered by it and there was even one who couldn´t cope with it and give it up untimely.
I think people look on the fame only in the positive way. But all coins has two faces...
Hi I am 18 and I would like to change my opinions with you.
