Zeitgeist v. Zeitgeist Exposed
I just sorta kinda watched the New Zeitgeist movie, Zeitgeist Addendum. Now just outta curiosity I'm watching some stuff trying to refute the movie. It starts by saying that the movie uses the same sources repeatedly, oooh noes! It's blasting the fact that they went after the fish allegory being for the age of pisces and said that fish were an important food source so of course they'll get mentioned a lot. No argument there. Next they take on the fact that theres many many other "gods" with very similar stories to jesus. They claim that this idea must have come from this one book and that book is discredited, um... strawman. I bet theres other sources besides that shitty book for the many other ancient gods. Plus they already talked about the sources, is that book a source or not? Eh. I didn't watch the whole thing, there was a bunch of bible passages and thats about when I tuned out. Wasn't too impressed. The first Zeitgeist impressed me, I didn't immediately think that it was all true, but it made me really curious and want to look into it further. Unfortunately the records from two thousand years ago can be a little spotty, so I guess we won't really know for sure till we die. So I'm not in any big rush to find out.
