Don't Just Get Mad -- Ask Questions

If you haven't heard about "Zeitgeist -- The Movie " before today, you will certainly hear a great deal about it in the next few months. This film in three parts is sweeping the internet and making many people question everything they believe about religion, 9/11, and the Federal Reserve Bank.

Zeitgeist touches on the three topics that most people find virtually impossible to discuss with argument -- religion, politics and money.

Here is how the film's producers describe their film:

Zeitgeist was created as a not for profit expression to inspire people to start looking at the world from a more critical perspective and to understand that very often things are not what the population at large think they are. The information in Zeitgeist was established over a year long period of research and the current Source page on this site lists the sources used / referenced. Soon, an interactive transcript will be online with detailed footnotes and links."

I finally had a chance to view the film in its entirety and certainly see what all of the controversy is about. No matter who you are this movie will challenge what you believe about religion, government and society. There will certainly be many that will dismiss the film's claims as "paranoid conspiracy theory ". Yet, I suggest that you view this film not because I can attest to the veracity of all of its statements, nor necessarily agree with all of theories, but because everyone needs to know what they believe, why they believe it and be able to present a rational argument for their beliefs when asked.

If this movie raises questions in your mind seek answers. Ask questions of your religious leaders, your teachers, your elected representatives, your parents, your friends -- ASK, ASK & then ASK Again. Ask until you are satisfied with the answers and can explain your position if someone asks you the same questions.

What you see in this film may upset you, offend you, frighten you, disillusion you, confuse you or make you mad as hell. But don't just get mad -- Ask Questions.
