The first Zeitgeist filmed received much backlash due to religious related backlash.
This. Keep this in mind as you read criticisms of it.
For whatever errors may be in the film, do not throw out the baby with the bathwater. It is based, largely, off of Jordan Maxwell's work, but the
concept of the Bible being the construct of man, rather than god, is not a new one and has been around long before there were typewriters, let alone
Much of the criticism stems from, not what is wrong with it, but what is right

of many paths, but a necessary piece of the puzzle to figure out what is really
going on here on planet Earth, and who is responsible for it
