Zeitgeist, the Movie - A few of the most controversial subjects of our era.

Over the past few days, my English class has been watching this strange movie called "Zeitgeist". Though the majority of the class is sleeping, laughing, talking and all around not paying attention, this movie has managed to captivate me and has motivated me to spread the word.

Zeitgeist covers three of today's touchiest subjects: Part I, called "The Greatest Story Ever Told", talks generally about religion and it's origins. It begins by introducing you to Horus, the Egyptian God of the Sun, who was created around 3000 B.C. What's peculiar about this "God" is that he was supposedly born on December 25th to a virgin mother, was adored by three kings, travelled around with twelve disciples performing miracles, etc. Sound familiar? Well you will learn that Horus shared the same characteristics as not only, say for example, Jesus, but dozens of other Gods around the globe. What I found extremely interesting about this part of the movie was the fact that "Horus" was a personification; it was simply used to describe the sun and make reading it's path easier and more interesting. For example, Horus' twelve disciples were merely the twelve constellations, all with their own personalities and attributes. Everything (i.e. his date of birth, the virgin mother, the star in the East, etc.) about this Egyptian God has an explanation involving solar changes and stellar constellations. It was this way the Egyptians could tell when they would get bad weather, when the seasons would change, etc. I will refrain myself from telling you any more about Part I, though it is extremely tempting, there is no way that I would ever be able to explain it as well as the movie. The narrator then jumps forward a few thousand years and begins to talk about other religions and its origins.

Part II of Zeitgeist, the Movie is called "All The World's A Stage". Basically, this part is about 9/11. I'm almost scared to mention it because I know a lot of people on GSB were touched by this tragedy and mentioning it might start something I really don't want to start. I just feel that it is important to get it out there and let people decide for themselves what they believe is right.
I'm no political scientist or anyone educated in the matter, so I wont go into deep detail about it. All I can tell you is that Zeitgeist presents you with very real, terrifying information about 9/11. We all know certain people think it's a conspiracy, but do they really know why? You will now.

Part III of this movie is called "Don't Mind the Man Behind the Curtain". Though we haven't gotten this far in the movie yet because the disk has a huge scratch in it (Rolling Eyes), I assume it's pretty interesting. From what I've been told, it's about taxing in America. From what the rest of the movie is about, I don't expect it to be spreading a positive word about taxes.


Here is the trailer to the movie if you just want a glimpse of it.


The entire Zeitgeist movie can be found (and watched free Cassie) at this site: http://zeitgeistmovie.com/main.htm

Personally, I found this movie amazing. I've been sitting here for five minutes trying to add a sentence to describe why I like it, but I just can't do it. You really have to watch it to decide. You'll either love it or hate it.

WARNING
Please note that this movie is going to say things that might completely go against what you believe in but just keep an open mind, after all, it is your decision to make anyway. Retard
