What do they believe? What do you think? Talk about religion as it exists today.

the usual suspects are at it again

Of course it will have better production values than the nutter crap that gets pushed out.

If the medium is the message, the message in documentary-land is that skepticism is half-baked crap and fundamentalism is triple-A cuisine. Money is the root of all evil? It's certainly the cause of one advantage for orthodox apologetics. The funny thing is that they're still bleeding numbers... imagine if there were a similarly funded cadre of skeptics. Instead people like Robert Price and Richard Carrier need to go about hat in hand for support, and of course that's taken as a sophistic point to be held against them.

Oh to be a billionaire philanthropist...

Skeptics are producing films. Unfortunately, they are equally atrocious. I give you "Christian Dilemmas."

If this is the best the "mythicists" can do, people are correct to laugh at it.
