Makes an interesting and fresh argument
21 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is always obvious when someone makes a film that makes a strong case for the truth. People with no real counter arguments get angry and throw out catch phrases like "straw man arguments" or "shame on you" because they have no real intelligent counter evidence. Good for the filmmakers for making a solid case. Shame on the self-righteous haters who bash ideas they don't like, without providing any real counter evidence.

Unless someone wants to do the actual counter research, as opposed to hurling empty insults, I would suggest that you watch this film and make up your own mind. Bravo to PBS for allowing the opportunity for an actual environment open to ideas from more than one narrow perspective.
