Zeitgeist: The Movie


The more you begin to investigate what we think we understand,

where we came from, what we think we're doing,

the more you begin to see we've been lied to.

We've been lied to by every institution.

What makes you think for one minute that the religious institution

is the only one that's never been touched?

The religious institutions of this world are at the bottom of the dirt.

The religious institutions in this world are put there by the same people

who gave you your government, your corrupt education,

who set up your international banking cartels.

Because our masters don't give a damn about you or your family.

All they care about is what they have always cared about

and that's controlling the whole damn world.

We have been misled away from the true and divine presence in the universe

that men have called god.

I don't know what god is but I know what he isn't,

and unless and until you are prepared to look at the whole truth,

and wherever it may go, whoever it may lead to,

if you want to look the other way or if you want to play favorites,

then somewhere along the line you're going to find out you're messing with divine justice.

The more you educate yourself the more you understand where things come from

the more obvious things become and you begin to see lies everywhere.

You have to know the truth and seek the truth and the truth will set you free.

They must find it difficult..

Those who have taken authority as the truth,

Rather than truth as the authority

-G. Massey, Egyptologist

Because I gotta tell you the truth, folks, I gotta tell you the truth.

When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit,

you have to stand in oh,

of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims -


Think about it.

Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky

who watches everything you do, every minute of every day.

And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do.

And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire

and smoke and burning and torture and anguish,

where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry

forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you.

He loves you, and he needs money! He always needs money!

He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!

Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more.

Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Sh*t!

Part 1:
The Greatest Story Ever Told

This is the sun.

As far back as 10 thousand B.C.,

history is abundant with carvings and writings reflecting peoples respect and adoration for this object.

And it is simple to understand why as every morning the sun would rise,

bringing vision, warmth, and security, saving man from the cold, blind,

predator-filled darkness of night.

Without it, the cultures understood the crops would not grow, and life on the planet would not survive.

These realities made the sun the most adorned object of all time.

Likewise, they were also very aware of the stars.

The tracking of the stars allowed them to recognize

and anticipate events which occurred over long periods of time,

such as eclipses and full moons.

They in turn catalogued celestial groups into what we know today as constellations.

This is the cross of the Zodiac, one of the oldest conceptual images in human history.

It reflects the sun as it figuratively passes

through the 12 major constellations over the course of a year.
