Movie Reviews

History Channel Propaganda & Deceptive Amazon Description
J. B. | 02/26/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The documentary appears to be pro-Bible and pro-Christian at first. There is a man in the beginning of the DVD who says they view the Bible as an historical document. But as you watch the program, you realize that the documentary, although "pro"-Bible (as an historical book, and nothing more), is anti-God. The entire program is about explaining that the disasters in the bible did indeed happen, but try to convince you that they happened naturally (ie: without God). They even go so far as to say that the authors of the Bible stole stories, and that they incorporated God into certain "tales" that "most likely" happened "naturally", without God. They clearly don't believe in the Divine Inspiration of the Scriptures.

The back of the DVD, which is not what's listed in the Amazon description, says that they reinterpret the Bible (their private interpretation) with a "scientific" point of view and separate it from the so-called "religious agenda". I guess the program is good for Christians who have a very strong faith and would like to see how some scientists explain certain stories in the Bible. But be warned that it's typical History Channel propaganda."
Good Show

(5 out of 5 stars)

This is a great show that tries to show how some parts of the bible may be based on actual events in some of its stories. Have to remember that those that wrote the many stories that were later put together into a collection called the bible were that of primitive people who lacked most of the knowledge we have today. Back then anything unexplained was the work of gods or demons.

Another show called Banned from the bible shows many of the stories that were removed or never made it into the collection called the bible.

I find it funny that some people get upset when anything is questioned in the bible.

It's not a propaganda

"This is very good for anybody who wants an insight in ancient biblical society and undersrtand their worldview. In response to the previous reviewer who states that this documentray was anti-god, well, any form of rational thought can be anti-god. Are we supposed to beleive in the supernatural explanation of ancient people and take them for fact? Are we suppose to just accept that God or supernatural being was beign those disasters? The ancient greeks had their own supernatural explanations for their own disastrous events, can we all take them as fact too? This is the 21st century, we should be above those sillyness."
