Zeitgeist?

Posted 25 November 2008 - 09:39 AM

This could cause an all out flame war but that I'd flag it anyway... :)

Have you seen the zeitgeist movie yet? (A free and extremely controversial movie from http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/. I seen it for the first time about a year ago, and watched the second movie last night.

Going to keep my opinions to myself, and will respect those of others, but just wanted to see if this movie has raised as many eyebrows as I thought. It changed my life and I can't be the only one.

Let the flaming begin!

this has actually been done several times on the site...I'll try and dig up the thread to give a good idea of what's been said in the past.

[edit]thought so...here are the links[/edit]

It certainly does seem to have generated some conversation.

Anyone who thinks 9/11 was an inside job is a tool. Or a bigger cynic then I am and that's an accomplishment.

I wouldn't be surprised, there's very few people I really trust. I can count them on my hands.

I thought it was an interesting movie.

I wasn't too impressed with the first third of the movie, though it's main point, that religion can be/is used to manipulate people, is probably true. Of course whether the people doing the manipulating are following the religion or not is a flame for another day.

In my friends download of the movie the second third got eated. So I'm not going to comment on the 9/11 thing.

I liked the third part of the movie. 'Twas interesting.

Never heard of it, so I downloaded it last night an watched it. It was entertaining. The one thing that always "gets me" with movies like that (*ahem* Micheal Moore) is that they continually state that all of "this" (what ever the movie is about) is possible due to the lack of education of the general public. Yet the directors use the same tactics employed by the antagonists in the film (usually the government). They use imagery and partial truths to invoke emotion witch in turn causes the general uneducated public to respond irrationally. Overall I liked the film and found it interesting but I don't think I'm going to secede from the US anytime soon.
