Religion - The God Who Wasn't There



Former fundamentalist Christian Brian Flemming places the core concepts of his former religion under the microscope in a documentary that attempts to do for religion what Morgan Spurlocks Super Size Me did for the fast-food industry. In his bold quest to seek answers to the difficult questions that few are willing to pose, Fleming is joined by Deconstructing Jesus author Robert M. Price, renowned historian Richard Carrier, and The End of Faith author Sam Harris. From the ignorance of many contemporary Christians as to the origin of their religion to the striking similarities between Jesus Christ and the deities worshipped by ancient pagan cults and the Christian obsession with blood and violence, this faith-shaking documentary explores the many mysteries of the Christian faith as never before. This documentary argues the mythicist case in the historical Jesus debate. This position says that Jesus of Nazareth wasnt a real person but a fiction based on Jewish scriptures and mystery religions of the Roman Empire. It doesnt make sense to talk about a real Jesus - there wasnt any. This documentary has good information but could have been better produced - any high school student could have done a better job.
