Interesting look on the origins of religion.
1 November 2015 | by andrewcorlettSee all my reviews

7/10 as far as history channel entertainment goes. Basically "put it on while you do something else" material. But I was surprised by the low rating on Netflix (reserved for C level horror films) so I came up with a hypothesis and investigated further. My hypothesis was this.. "If an uneducated population is driven towards religion, then the most well though out and persuasive religion would be a significant tool to guide human behavior for the betterment of society as a whole". The "Rules" are the one's we ask of religion today.. Sex, slavery, drugs, war.. where does the god of these books stand on such issues. The program does a good job of relating the context of society at the times of these writing with the language of the Christian bible. If you hold that as your belief then relating your values to that of these ancient people becomes offensive. But that's exactly where it started. Maybe I'm biased going in but it went in the direction I was hoping it would. Just know that the reviews are scrambled based on individual reactions to the content. I found it interesting. Give it a shot if you've caught up on everything else.
