From the beginning of human history we and our ancestors have been manipulated by religious and political institutions and their leaders. Religious leaders, typically morally decadent and intellectually dull, have instructed the majority of human beings on how we're to understand God, as if we lack some intellectual and spiritual capacity that they possess. Political leaders, also lacking in morality and intellectual capacity, and inspired by greed and want for power, have worked in league with the leaders of religion, to form a nearly perfect system of mass mind control, until now.
Under modern scientific scrutiny, Christianity appears to be nothing more than an artificially constructed belief system cult, once created by Rome to help unify its empire, while the Jesus of the Gospels was almost certainly nothing more than a retelling of the ancient stories of life of the Egyptian God Horus. And what about Moses? Was the Moses story just a retelling of the story of Sargon, or could it have come from an earlier story about the Hindu lawgiver Manu? If all of this is true, then where does that leave the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religions? You must decide for yourself after watching the Zeitgeist movies.
Statement from the Official Zeitgeist Movie Site:
'Zeitgeist, The Movie' and 'Zeitgeist: Addendum' were created as Not-for-Profit expressions to communicate what the author felt were highly important social understandings which most humans are generally not aware of. The first film focuses on suppressed historical & modern information about currently dominant social institutions, while also exploring what could be in store for humanity if the power structures at large continue their patterns of self-interest, corruption, and consolidation.
The second film, Zeitgeist: Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution. This solution is not based on politics, morality, laws, or any other "establishment" notions of human affairs,but rather on a modern, non-superstitious based understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The work advocates a new social system which is updated to present day knowledge, highly influenced by the life long work of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.
