    I think it is an advertising ploy and the video is readily available on YOUTUBE and many other sites and I have checked many of the facts out and they are often inaccurate

    Me too, I think the authors doth protest to much. This hardly seems like something youtube would remove (people can swear all they want on youtube yet it still bleeps out profanity).

    This is the part I wondered about. Are the facts misrepresented in this video? I’ll have to do some checking too.

    I know this is technically an ad hominem attack but...

    This is part of a larger video with 9/11 conspiracy stuff in it.

    That doesn't mean this unrelated section is wrong, but I'd take this with a grain of salt (several actually).

    No video should be banned. Adults assume responsibility for what they watch and each child is the responsibility of his or her parent or guardian. It is just that simple.

    I believe the Constitution of the United States says something very similar to that.

    Saying that someone wants to ban a video/book/article, or whatever is a sure way to get people to read it or watch it. It's a ploy, no more or less. The moguls of rant radio (Hannity, Limbaugh, et. al.) do the same thing with the so called "fairness doctrine", which they know is dead anyway.

    As for the content, it is certainly thought provoking, but no different from what is in The Da Vinci Code.

    Here is a confirmation of what the video says about Horus:

    You know....if YouTube really did bleep out the stuff, then why in the hell does Robin Williams have his Golf bit uncensored?

    Also, why is there uncensored videos of stuff like Theory of a Deadman, Bad Girlfriend, as well as some light porn on YouTube?

    Nope......this is a big time hoax. Someone with an agenda apparently.

    Ehh what do you mean by light porn? Youtube doesn't allow nudity and if you've found some then it's only because nobody's flagged it.

    Anyway it's the forbidden fruit thing, if you tell someone they can't have something then all of a sudden they want it more.

    It's one of the reasons why when people go nuts over a game/TV show/movie then it's sales/ratings go up.
