"Only Sith deal in absolutes"

"Only Sith deal in absolutes." I don't like this at all. This should have been cut from the movie.


1. Sidious said evil or whatever is a point of view, kind of like, their really isn't such a thing as good and bad, just point of views, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that the opposite of absolute?

2. If Jedi doesn't deal with absolutes then why are they saying the Sith is evil, and they seem to think their is right and wrong, the Jedi is basically based on absolutes.

3. This pretty much slams Christians, considering Christians deal in absolutes.

the only christians that get offended by something like this are uptight about everything and see an attack in their religion in every movie, every ad, every whatever

it's NOT an attack on any religion, it's just a movie

Ok then forget the Christan thing, I wasn't offended by it really, I just didn't like that line because it didn't make much sense from what they had said earlier in the movie.

agreed. thumb up just enjoy the movie. it's not likely that lucas wrote that line and said, "tht'll show them christians!" it's a movie called star wars. not religion wars. and i especially don't think gl would relate christians to the sith.

I thought it was a great line and may go down as one of the most memorable from the whole saga.

I thought it was a great line, perfectly executed. Basically confirming that Obi-Wan has no choice but to fight, that his friend is truly gone. Identifying him as a Sith would make the fight easier, and more justified and necessary in his mind, I would think.

How is it a great line if Obi Wan and all the other Jedi deal in absolutes?

sith are evil...they kill innocent and thrive for power their selfish.... sith probably do think in absolutes...they never say it but they act it....he was saying that just to get anakin even closer to the dark side (even though it is really point of views, but the dark sides is evil like i said before they arnt doing good and thats obvious)

Absoluts

Happy Dance What Lucus is saying is George Bush is a Sith.
I think if we all search our feelings, we know it to be true.

exactly, this line is one of the best in the movie. it doesn't mean that the jedi can't have opinions about the sith being evil confused

If they don't deal in absolutes then they can't believe in such a thing as evil or they would be dealing in absolutes.

laughing out loud well, since you said that, I guess we can close this thread before we all get confused. Face it, not dealing in absolutes is imposable.
