Anyone see Zeitgeist yet?
I meant to watch this web movie six months ago, but a friend reminded me about it this week.
Zeitgeist is an almost two-hour movie about various “truths” or “conspiracies” that have plagued our society and world for a long time, and continue to do so to this day.
Once I started watching it, I couldn’t stop. I’m not going to offer my opinions yet, until other readers have commented on it. I recommend everyone take a couple hours, get comfortable, have a nice cup of tea or coffee, and watch it in it’s entirety (if you haven’t already.)
I have one thing to say about it now: It makes you think.
Here’s the premise, and you can either watch the video below, or go to the Zeitgeist website here. (bigger video size)
Part I: The Greatest Story Ever Told
Part I evaluates Christian beliefs established in the Bible and critiques the historicity of the Bible. In furtherance of the Jesus myth hypothesis, this part argues that the historical Jesus is a literary and astrological hybrid, and that the Bible is based on astrological principles documented by many ancient civilizations, especially pertaining to movement of the sun through the sky and stars. The movie specifically mentions alleged links between Jesus Christ and the Egyptian Sun God Horus.
Part II: All the World’s a Stage
Part II asserts that the United States was warned about the impending September 11, 2001 attacks, that NORAD was purposely confused through wargames to allow the planes to reach their targets, and that the World Trade Center buildings underwent a controlled demolition. Additionally, the film argues that six of the named hijackers are still alive, that Hani Hanjour could not have flown Flight 77 into the Pentagon, that the Bush Administration covered up the truth in the 9/11 Commission Report, and that the mainstream media has failed to ask important questions about the official account.
Part III: Don’t Mind the Men Behind the Curtain
Part III asserts that powerful bankers have been conspiring for world domination and increased power. According to the documentary, the rich of society have been using their wealth to increase financial panic and foster a consolidation of independent competing banks. The film details the Theory of Electronic Conspiracy and claims that the Federal Reserve System, the central bank of the United States, was created in order to steal the wealth of the nation. It makes claims of war profiteering by a rich few. It describes the goal of these bankers as world power over a controllable public. This section also claims that there is a clandestine movement to usurp the American constitution and dollar by merging the USA, Canada and Mexico into a North American Union, a super-state similar to the EU. The movie claims that this has been done without the ratification of congress and is promoted as the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.
