Religious - Movie Review



I've been meaning to post something up about Bill Maher's movie Religious - it's great! Oh yea a little reality thrown at the kool-aid drinkers. Where are the hard core right wing skeptics who debunk UFO's, Ghosts, ESP, Edgar Cayce but don't ever speak out about Religion as if somehow those belief systems are based on hard core evidence of some kind? What do religions give us, books, myths, contradictions, dogma, where are the artifacts?

For those of you brave enough to question how things are with the brain and free will you were created with invest ninety minutes of time and catch bill's take on World Religions. The critics of this movie feel threatened by how easy it is to poke holes in organized religion and their (to coin a phrase) faith based realities. Hey I'm not discounting a creator. I didn't build this universe, put this Earth here, or all these people, but when it comes to organized religion there are some dubious claims and people running the show. I would venture to say that most people who are not card carrying members of some "faith based" organization, big and powerful, asking for money, and cult like in their behavior, are far more respectfull of the Earth, it's environment and each other.

Remember if you are not living by these two codes "live and let live" and "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" then you are the one doing the wrong thing.

Check out Bill's movie and tell your friends!
