    This movie, one of the most incredible I have ever seen, makes a strong case that Christianity is a pagan religion, brought into the mainstream because of political reasons. It also creates a strong case for 911 being a conspiracy and is about the central bank, and connects the dots in way that makes everything seem like it just makes sense.

    If all you know of the world is "Zeitgeist" you are going to have a very flawed view of the world.

    Zeitgeist is a great movie. But the OP leaves the impression that it's ONLY about religion, it isn't.

    It's also about the Federal Reserve and how the Fractional Reserve Banking System is the biggest scam in the history of man.

    I show it to anyone who'll watch and I highly recommend it!

    Why?


    Sidenote... I changed the OP to incude the part about 911 and the fractional reserve. The reason I originally only included the religion part in my description is because this is the 'Religion and Ethics part.'

    That is such a crock of shit. That is the corporate/government run news media trying to make an enemy out of film that threatens the state. That is fucking obviously what is happening. How pathetic. Blaming a killing on a film. That film has enlightened SO many. They didn't go killing people. Perhaps he was just mentally unbalanced. If it wasn't Zeitgeist, it would have been Machiavelli, if it wasn't Machiavelli, it would have been Nietzsche. He was searching for something to leverage himself against a society he hated and felt apart and separated from. Zeitgeist offered that in easiest form, but he would have found something else were it not available. He was in pain, and needed respite. I can understand this. This man was obviously very troubled psychologically. The anti-establishment message founding in Zeitgeist was probably validating for a person who felt ostracized from society.
    This is speculation, but is a sentiment I can relate to, as I often feel very seperated from society myself, and see it as arbitrary, and this film helps put it in a perspective that makes total sense, with facts to back it up, and I myself found it validating for me, to feel okay in myself, and not feel like I need to be like everybody else to be okay. I am sure it does this for a lot of people, including this kid. He just happened to take it to an extreme, and felt the need to kill people to express emotions he could not control- anger, hatred, fear, beyond his understanding, and which probably caused him great suffering. I still think this is OBVIOUS corporate news networks using propoganda to turn popular opinion against a film/idea that threatens it.

    Zeitgeist exposes too much truth, too easily. It connects the dots in a way that presents a narrative that can't be denied.

    Because some kid who killed people was inspired by it, if that is even true, has no bearing on the validity and truth of the film itself. It doesn't indicate anything about the film, only the boy.

    "Over the last year or so a number of people have told me that I should watch the film Zeitgeist: The Movie. All of these people have been lefties or liberals, and each tells me that the film supplies a good exposé of power in the modern world. These people have been from a wide range of backgrounds and ages, some of them environmentalists, some of them unionists, some of them socialists, some British, some American.

    The film has achieved massive viewing figures globally, with over 3,000,000 people having watched it on Youtube, and many more on DVD or Google Video. And of all of these people who have recommended the film to me, none has noticed its reliance on the old myth of the “world Jewish conspiracy”.

    In this article I hope to expose the film’s relationship to older anti-Semitic texts and myths, and look more closely at how these theories are made to look left-wing or liberal."

    No, what I am actually saying is the movie Zeitgeist is only intelligible to nutcases.
