My Easter/Passover weekend special for you!

"The God Who Wasn't There"
I downloaded this movie a few years ago, but recently it's come up in conversation, and particularly after seeing that horrible "bite" by Bill Maher with his condescending "Religulous" I thought this was really an interesting documentary you might want to check out.

here's the trailer:

In this critically acclaimed film, you will discover:
The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus. The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults. Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion. Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing that Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes. From exposing the hidden history of Christianity to lampooning the bloody excesses of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ (which caused Gibson to attempt legal action against the documentary), The God Who Wasn't There pulls no punches.
Here's a piece of the film i found online:
Directed by award-winning filmmaker (and former Christian) Brian Flemming, The God Who Wasn't There includes stimulating interviews with: Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation - Robert M. Price, Jesus Seminar fellow and author of The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man - Alan Dundes, Professor of Folklore at the University of California at Berkeley - Richard Carrier, historian and author of Sense and Goodness Without God - Barbara & David P. Mikkelson, authors of the Urban Legends Reference Pages at - And many others
I did a few searches around looking to see if the whole thing was posted on line and i just found the piece above several times, as well as the trailer and tons of christians refuting and trying to tear down the credibility of the movie, Oprah, Obama and anyone scary to them, these folks were more scary than the devil himself.

You can easily Bit-torrent this doc, or go to to buy the DVD

have a good one if you celebrate that type of stuff...


  1. Believe it or not, my family and I sat down to watch this on Easter Sunday. It was very unusual considering I was brought up very Catholic haha.

  2. if you want to find out if jesus is real, start looking,question what you hear from people that say they are christians and test it your self,against your other info.

    try praying ask God if he's a fony or if he's really there.

    why not put up a documentary that trashes buddihsm or islam or krishna. "you" always say oh, it's all religions,but you only bash christianity.
    why must it always be christianity, are people scared we might be right and therefore must do everything in their power to prove us wrong.

    and what will it benifit you, the atheist, if you're right. will you be content and stop shit talking other beliefs that you don't understand.

    why is it that atheists are so determand to shove your "religious" ideals down our throats. if you beleive in nothing be content with it. why have your "prophets" wright books desperately trying to bring christianity to a stand still, if you're so sure that nothing exists.

    what's in it for you. unfortunately there are fundamentalists in christianity,but there are in anything, even atheism. and all of us are imperfect, but through christ we've become perfect enough to be accepted by him.

    look at the whole truth,search for it, don't just listen to one guys point of view, however historically factual it may be, and claim it as truth.
    please, i'm not an atheist hater, it's just that there are two sides to every story.

    there are plenty of documentaries that prove that jesus existed and that God is real.
    find one and post it up.

    put in all the facts.

    you want to know if God exists?

    go ask him yourself.

    God Bless.
