“If you think this is a paranoid delusion of a few fringe conspiracy nuts”
I don’t think anything else of it than what can be found to be true. If you think zeitgeist is a movie worth taking as truth, you are simply wrong.
I’ve read all about the NAU, it still is a conceptual matter, and not even close to a done deal, like zeitgeist suggested. Well on it’s way, I realize that. In fact it has been developing a long long time, zeitgeist simply gives false information about it (too).
I haven’t had the time to dig in to part 2 and 3 of the movie, but since cultures and religions have always been a hobby of mine, this is what I can say about part 1:
Horus was not born dec. 25th. In fact the date would be the end of egyptian month, Khoiak, which corresponds to our November 15th. He was not born of a virgin, there was no star to indicate the birth and no 3 men (as was not in Jesus’ story for that matter, bible never gives a number of the men).
He did not have 12 diciples. There are mentioning of four followers, and another reference to 16 followers (I guess that is where the interpretation of 12 came out of).
He was not baptized. He was not crucified or resurrected. In fact in only one of the many stories about him he dies at all.
Zeitgeist was a hard movie to watch for me, since it began with information I already knew was out right false. The latter parts tho seem keep their ground, as far as I call tell, but I’m only starting to read up on those.
Fox gives out very unresting opinions :D He seems to think the EU has been nothing but good and sunshine. As the NAU, the EU is only on its way. The new Lissabon agreement is gonna move the power forth to a smaller group of people, again.
