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:Here's a piece of the film i found online:
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.
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 snopes.com - And many othersI 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.
