    PBS, Public Blasphemy Station

    i feel sorry for people who think they can get any idea of Christianity from watching PBS, A&E, or History Channel.

    these documentaries aren't even in the freaking ballpark.

    i like watching them, but the truth is i should stop, it's pure BS.

    they start of by saying , "we don't really know but..." , then within 15 minutes they try to lead you down the path of what they WANT to believe.

    they tell half truths, they tell odd parts of a story, they misunderstand meaning, ..they over simplify meaning to make it sound odd or ridiculous.

    it's scary to think that they have people believing they know everything because they did a DNA test or a carbon test, and no one has a right to question anything.

    they tell misleading stories in the beginning of the documentary, then make some effort to correct it at the end, and people who can't follow too well will think the first story, they made up, is factual.

    they add inaccurate reenactments, so people take in the visual rather then the words.

    sometimes they come up with "facts" from some Bible that i never saw.

    if you want to know what the Bible says, go to the source

    What shows specifically are you referencing.
    Because a lot of their programing is good. And educational, but then again I tend towards the science and nature shows.

    the show i just watched was the Book of Judas.
    but better examples were from the story of David

    Love those brittcoms.

    Miss Monty Python and Benny Hill though....

    PBS does not write their scripts from behind a pulpit.
    Their goal is to educate and make people think.

    I know thinking is a problem for so many, but that is why we need PBS.
