BBC documentary series about disbelief. The hidden story of atheism.
I can't believe you posted that!
And I didn't know that Google Video embedded so nicely here. Not strictly NZ-relevant, but so good I'm happy to overlook it.
10 points for quoting Homer Simpson & worth a watch.
At the end I got a real anti-Islam feeling from him. Christianity was bad but Islam is worst kind of stuff.
He briefly looked at Communism as an Atheist society & concluded it was evil but didn't acknowledge the science culture of the Nazis at all.
He didn't look at South America & the Catholic v Catholic wars.
I really prefer Chomsky who follows the Marxist line that all wars are economic. I'ld be prepared to hold an exception for WWII after 1942 but that's it.
Being Knighted has clouded a bit of his vision here & he didn't mention Bishop Spong at all.
I didn't get that feeling at all, plus I'll hold judgment on omissions till I see more of the series , I believe that was episode one.
Thanks for posting that, I forgot it was on and so missed it when it broadcast. Hurray for the internet!
Ben - thankfully, if you click through on the link to Google video, it will take you through and you'll find links to the other two episodes.
