Issac Newton: The Dark Heretic, “Last of the Magicians” – BBC Documentary

“BBC – ‘Newton: The Dark Heretic’ Aired 2003 ‘Heretic’ in the sense that he disbelieved in the concept of the Trinity. A very interesting documentary revealing a hidden and truly enlightened side to one of the greatest minds that western civilisation has known. His deep study of science led him to a firm conclusion that there is a Creator and based on his study of early Christian history, he was convinced that the concept of The Trinity was a falsification of the pure message of monotheism that Jesus preached. Newton vehemently rejected the corruption of the Christian establishment and the innovation that is the divinity of Jesus, his belief was the revealed God is one God. During his life he was forced to keep this belief secret for fear of being labelled a heretic and after his death this information was carefully suppressed. The documentary also highlights the point that in the absence of study of the final divine revelation no matter how great the mind the knowledge of the unseen can not be deciphered as is illustrated by the fact that Newton spirals into a hopeless search for the truth by vigoursly engaging in the art of alchemy!

The Case For A Creator, A Scientist And His Journey From Aethism To Faith

Description: This 60-minute program is a compelling adaptation of Lee Strobel’s personal journey from atheism to faith in God… a journey in search of the truth about intelligent design in the universe. During his academic years, Lee became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune . Science made the idea of a Creator irrelevant… or so Strobel thought. My road to atheism was paved by science… but, ironically, so was my later journey to God. Lee Strobel Has science discovered God? At the very least, it’s giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of life and our universe. In The Case for a Creator DVD, Strobel reexamines the theories that once led him away from God. Highlighted by spectacular computer animation, The Case for a Creator DVD is a remarkable film in which you’ll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness. The Case for a Creator DVD is produced by Illustra Media, the same studio team that released The Privileged Planet, Unlocking the Mystery of Life , Where Does the Evidence Lead and The Prophecies of the Passion . More than 40 minutes of extra bonus features (not included; please upload if you have this!).

Personally, I’m agnostic. I think atheism is an absurd concept by its own definition: the Cartesian scientific method does not allow conclusions to be made from unknowns. I find the sometimes childish and offensive posturings of athiests (particularly on the net, stumbleupon.com is full of them for some reason [social engineering propaganda for “Generation i”, I wonder?]) boring and, frankly, a little scary. In my opinion, we need God. Without the unknown, without the temperment of its uncertainty, we are nothing but soft machines to be tinkered with by psychopathic Corporations and Ivy League Eugenicists. The existance of God is not an argument or a debate any more than a discussion about the existance of the Binomial Theorum. God is a sum of infinite parts, a timeless destination, a collective wonderment forever, most likely, beyond our understanding. And who is any one of us to decide boundaries to such a thing? You have to be technically insane.

Chariots Of The Gods, Classic 1970 Documentary Based On Von Daniken’s Book Of The Same Name ** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

A whirlwind world tour of some of the craziest unanswerable questions archaeology and history has to offer us. And, yeah, as pointed out below, the music is great.

The Naked Truth: Derek Partridge, Jordan Maxwell, And Bill Jenkins

Find out where Religion originated from. And that Religious characters are just myths from ancient egypt. If you do your own research you will find it to be true. Im currently Researching and cant find any faults in this documentary.

I consider myself agnostic – I think atheism is arrogant, philosophically unsound, painfully unscientific and hypocritical – and I am severely cautious about any “Godless” direction taken by anyone in any humane social discipline, save History. In conclusion to such debate I like to coin the oft sought-after phrase, “Ideas don’t kill people, people-so-rigidly-adhered-to-them-so-as-to-believe-anyone-believing-otherwise-must-be-murdered do.”

Hat tip to Daily Glimpse (run by old faithful, Buzz Aldrin) for this lead.

You can read the William Burroughs essay (it’s short, easy to read and very much worth it, if not essential reading) at Daily Glimpse here.

The Life And Work Of Existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre, BBC Films

“An excellent documentary about the life and work of the Existentialist, Jean Paul Sartre.”

More of a fan of Albert Camus myself (read ‘The Myth of Sisyphus’). Apparently Jean-Paul had him pretty much destroyed by the literary scene of which he was king at the time.

Carl Sagan, The Pale Blue Dot ** AN ABSOLUTE MUST-SEE

“This is taken from the book. Having him read to you is something else. Enough said. Take a listen and leave comments please. Email this video to atleast one other person, its your moral duty.”

I second that. Beautiful. Politicians and businessmen should have their eyelids clamped open and be made to watch this.

The Shock Doctrine, A Short Film By Alfonso Cuarón (Director Of “Children Of Men”) and Naomi Klein (Author Of “NoLogo”), Directed By Jonás Cuarón

I don’t support anyone or anything unless I think it is going to assist the world’s poor, hinder the world arms trade, expose liars and corrupt politicians and despots, promote peace and creative harmony among the world’s people. This post is in support of Naomi Klein’s critically acclaimed new book “The Shock Doctrine (The Rise Of Disaster Capitalism)”. Ignore the glitzy marketing, think of the information and the new generations that will gain access to it because of it -Ed.

“When I finished The Shock Doctrine, I sent it to Alfonso Cuarón because I adore his films and felt that the future he created for Children of Men was very close to the present I was seeing in disaster zones. I was hoping he would send me a quote for the book jacket and instead he pulled together this amazing team of artists — including Jonás Cuarón who directed and edited — to make The Shock Doctrine short film. It was one of those blessed projects where everything felt fated.” – Naomi Klein
