I’d like to solicit your responses to this Film…
Zeitgeist the Movie <—click here to see it.
I was recently made aware of this film by a member of another online forum. As I have stated in other threads I spent around 3 months researching the 9/11 conspiracy theories in order to respond to the allegations made by this conspiracy that were repeated to me by my brother.
This movie encompasses that conspiracy along with a pretty solid debunking of religion (Ironically my Brother is a devout Christian), the Federal Reserve, the Banking industry in general, the media, and a conspiracy to eventually create one world government with complete control over every individual in the world.
The opening sequence of the film lasts for 4:54 minutes. I would suggest skipping that part, it has little redeeming value. It is simply a photo montage with some ominous sounding music. No significant message other than disturbing images.
Part 1 is devoted to religion around 5:00 minutes in
It is in fact very well done. I personally cannot speak for it’s accuracy, but it rings true.
It cleverly shows the relationship of many world religions to the Sun, the Stars, the astrological symbols/constellations, the winter solstice, and spring equinox.
It goes on to show the correlation of religions of early civilizations with the motion of the sun, and the stars. It then shows how Christian religion was almost completely plagiarized from Egyptian Myth.
It then correlates End of the World prophesies with the end of the Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. This having to do with the effects of a slight wobble of the earth’s axis that brings sunrise on the Spring equinox in line with a different constellation every 2150 years or so.
In the end, it demonstrates the use of faith as a means of securing power and control over civilizations. Many examples are provided, from Roman use of Christianity to destroy opposition to it’s dynasty, to the inquisition, and on and on.
This serves as a transition to part 2.
Part 2 - focuses on the 9/11 conspiracy. around 35:00 minutes in.
This section begins with an example of Tucker Carlson of MSNBC suggesting that it is blasphemous to suggest that the Bush Administration was in someway responsible for 9/11, thereby linking the earlier religious discussion with the conspiracy.
People who have spent time looking into this conspiracy theory will not see anything new here. It is mostly a re-hash of the events as seen through their eyes.
It ends by suggesting that the London transit bombings (todays discovered car bombs in London more evidence?), were intentionally set and that there was a police training scenario for that very type of event playing out on the same day as the bombings.
It is also suggested that the sinking of the Lusitania, Japanse bombing of Pearl Harbor and North Vietnamese attack on a PT boat, were all staged events leading to US engagement in wars following those events.
Part 3 - economic conspiracy about 1:06 minutes in.
This section covers Banking conspiracies associated with the Federal Reserve, Federal taxes (illegal and unconstitutional according to the theory), and debt slavery.
Implications of Banker/Aristocracy led control of the economy and debt, in order to enslave society and use the media to pacify us, destroy the education system to eliminate critical thought.
Ending with a forecast of micro technology embedded in humans and used to track your finances, your whereabouts and serve as an electronic ID/Passport.
This film is the most effective presentation of this conspiracy theory I have seen so far. It is for the most part well done (with the exception of some sequences that are too slow moving). They use as examples some of my favorite comedians, such as George Carlin and Bill Hicks, along with sequences from the movie Network to make their points.
I am hoping that this group can help in separating fact from fiction in this film.
As an Atheist and a Skeptic, I have tried to avoid aligning myself with any particular political viewpoint. I prefer to remain independent and objective and consider issues on their own merit rather than through the lens of a Political stance.
I find this group of Conspiracy Theorists more challenging to confront than any Theist. Their myths are so tightly knit with verifiable facts, that separating the myths is very difficult.
I realize no one wants to make a career of this, but if you have time to view the film and pass along your thoughts I would appreciate it.
