The God Who Wasn’t There
Former fundamentalist Christian Brian Flemming places the core concepts of his former religion under the microscope in a documentary that attempts to make religion what Super Size Me Morgan Spurlock did for fast food industry. In his bold quest to seek answers to difficult questions that few are willing to pose, Flemming is joined to the deconstruction of Jesus author Robert M. Price, renowned historian Richard Carrier and The End of Faith author Sam Harris.
From the ignorance of many contemporary Christians as to the origin of their religion to the striking similarities between Jesus Christ and the gods worshiped by the ancient pagan cults and the Christian obsession with blood and violence, this documentary explores the faith that shakes the many mysteries of Christian faith as never before.
The documentary argues that the “mystical” in the historical Jesus debate. This position says that Jesus of Nazareth was not a real person but a fiction based on the Jewish scriptures and the mystery religions of the Roman Empire. It makes no sense to speak of a “real” Jesus – there was none. This film has good information, but could have been produced better – any high school student could have done a better job.
