    i just dont believ god is magically putting gold teeth in peoples mouths... that seems so stupid. Waking up one day with gold teeth? riiiiiiight. Sounds like they secretly went to a dentist.

    ill give it a second chance though

    i won't lie. i'm a bit unsettled a the fact that it seems so natural by now that a thread about documentaries in the religious section of a forum should include science docs. atheists, we might need to reassess our strategy a bit. that being said, i suppose religion might actually prompt us to talk about big topics and look for scientific insight where we previously might have been complacent with the idea that scientists have the answers so therefore we don't need to investigate the matter. either way, here's what i've been watching:

    the planet earth series - amazing footage. i doubt a few decades ago anyone would have imagined that nature docs could get this intricate and beautiful.
    nature's great events series - similar to planet earth, explores the complexity of a few of the more massive biological events in nature. one episode is on the serengeti, for example, with the annual migratory loop of the wildebeest, gazelle and zebras and the predators who hunt them.
    the ascent of man with jacob bronowski - this is an older bbc documentary on man's ascension from the plains of africa. it is built on the premise of human evolution, though it focuses more explicitly on the cultural ascension that occurred with the primitive inventions that lead to agriculture and subsequently civilization.

    i've heard that neil tyson is set to host a sequel to carl sagan's cosmos in 2013. i'll be looking forward to that.

    ok so i watched your video BP

    the whole thing seemed like a bunch of dookie
    and i believe in some weird ass shit

    i mean im sure god can heal, and some of the stories they mention in the video could be true, but the video as a whole reeks of christian propaganda to me

    do i believe flawless gems are falling from the sky? no

    do i believe god is magically putting gold teeth in peoples mouths? no

    etc etc

    and i think we ourselves do the healing. Its not god blessing only some people cuz they are good christians or born againners....

    nice one, memento. i love greek mythology. it's probably the most human and personable type of mythology imo. the story of generational struggles are particularly pertinent and recur time and time again in the myths. i'm surprised they didn't mention that kronos had actually castrated his father to seize the throne in the first place. and of course zeus's marital problems provide an insight that spans the millenia right into modern times.

    here's another documentary on greek mythology i enjoyed.

    ^the vids were removed by the user. might have been a copyright issue.

    i think i saw the documentary in question a while back. did it start with the conversion of emporer constantine? unfortunately i can't find another channel that is hosting it.
