On Who's Afraid Of Lana Del Rey?

From a sociology standpoint, I find her absolutely fascinating. Not only her rise to fame, her background, and her persona, but also the content of her videos and lyrics - and they way they seem to be resonating with so many people (I heard "Video Games" playing on the stereo at the chicken-tenders joint I frequent). When I'm watching her videos, I'm wondering, like other commenters here, "sock puppet or an evil genius?" The answer, I think, is both. Regardless, her lyrics (sexually promiscuous innocence, willful humiliation, jaded wealth, easy amusement, glam-coated low self-esteem, etc) and her videos (00s glamor, 90s counter culture, 70-80s nostalgia) have provided me with some interesting thought-fodder.

@Multiphasic What is your point? Is a species made up of something other than individuals?

@DMcK Correct. You've proven my point. You don't have to believe in "supernatural hoo-ha" in order to be wholeheartedly believe in something that doesn't exist. You could use the same logic you used to prove "God" is illogical to prove that the Golden Rule is illogical too. You are highly-evolved enough to do that. Thankfully, you just choose not to.

Remove God and Morality is illogical. It's simply an evolutionary glitch that has hung on because it strengthens the species. If you are atheist and you believe in morality, you are as guilty of living in a fantasy land as any Bible-thumper. There is only pleasure and pain. You're making your decisions based on what brings more of the first, and less of the second.
