I was 19 days old when it came out, makes me feel young. I didn't read the series until last year though.

Nah, I'm not really old, because I'm eighteen. I was eight when I first read Harry Potter. Therefore I am still youthful and have nothing to be depressed about. :)

I don't get it, socerors and philosophers are two very different occupations, one of them being fictional, and all.

(and considering the idea of such a stone is taken from mythology/folktales/whatever, wasn't it an alchemist's stone originally?)

You mean damn americans for failing to understand the word Philosopher, and dumbing it down to sorcerer.

Was anyone else seriously confused by the Sorcerer/Philosopher thing? Damn brits and their slightly different (although original) names for things.

I was 21...

Say what you will, though, I have read all of the books, and found them to be surprisingly well-written and entertaining.

@Madduck

Based on what I remember from my Childrens Literature lectures, Harry Potter actually has quite a lot to do with religion, the main thing being that Harry can be seen as a representation of Jesus and Voldemort as Satan. The Christian subtext gets progressively more noticeable, culminating in Harry sacrificing himself to save others, only to visit 'heaven' and rise from the 'dead'. Rowling herself is a Christian, and I direct you to this: http : / / www . mtv . com/ news / articles / 1572107 /20071017 / story . jhtml It makes quite an interesting read :D Of course, it's nothing new, kids writers have been dealing with religion since C.S.Lewis, but she does it a lot less directly than him, which leaves it completely up to personal choice of how to read it :)

what has Harry Potter to do with religion- it is a childs book about wizard school- good over evil, no sex, bad language or poor role models. Unless you include Voldemort, who never seems terribly cool. I can see no reason any religious types could object- a good moral fable promoting sound values.
