"The Principle" brings to light astonishing new scientific observations challenging the Copernican Principle; the foundational assumption underlying the modern scientific world view. The idea that the Earth occupies no special or favored position in the cosmos has launched the last two scientific revolutions - the Copernican Revolution and Relativity - and, as Lawrence Krauss has said, we could be on the verge of a third, with "Copernicus coming back to haunt us". Interviews with leading cosmologists are interspersed with the views of dissidents and mavericks, bringing into sharp focus the challenges and implications not only for cosmology, but for our cultural and religious view of reality.

My view is likely to be unpopular here, but in college I studied
methods of propaganda in my business courses. Why? Because businesses
hype their products-- propaganda at its finest. This class taught not
only how to recognize propaganda, but how to use it to market products.
So through the years I've watched these principles in operation, in
everything from religion to the promotion of Evolution. (Yes gasp! A
theory with big gaping holes presented as absolute fact. That's
The same is true of creationists who believe the universe was created
in a literal 7 days... or (insert religions here) that can't even agree
on the identity of God.
People swallow these things down whole without even challenging the
concepts, without looking further into it, just because "scientists say
so" or "my preacher says so". (Exactly what is a "scientist" anyway?
I'm a SCIENTIST! Woohoo!). And there are always arrogant people with a
smidgen of knowledge who think they know everything there is to know
and anyone who disagrees with them is an idiot. That's one of the
results of propaganda: undue insistence that one's personal viewpoint
is absolute reality and disparaging harassment of those who disagree.
The whole lot of humankind is gullible, easily influenced, easily
mislead, easily fooled. "There is a sucker born every minute" is one of
the most accurate concepts on our planet. If nothing else, films like
this serve to help people understand propaganda and how it works.
People will believe things just because an "authority" (or several
"authorities") state it is so. Give them SOME facts, and they'll
swallow it all down. Tell half truths and people will believe it's all
truth. Tell the truth, but exaggerate it... and people will believe the
exaggeration. Or tell a lie convincingly and earnestly enough, and
people will believe that.
It doesn't matter whether it's people claiming the universe revolves
around the Earth, that life can somehow magically appear from nothing,
or that mankind never set foot on the moon. Propaganda works and if
anything, that is the lesson of films such as this. Such claims depend
on one, single solitary fact: most people don't examine, analyze or
question what they're told. Just like those who claim there is "no
other life in the universe" (how could they possibly know that?)... or
that evolution is the "only" way life on this planet could have come
about (seriously?)... mankind as a whole is gullible.
The difference between the average man and woman-- and people in
power-- is that people in power know that mankind is gullible, and use
that to every advantage. If we take away one thing at all from this
movie (and those similar to it, no matter what stance they take)... it
would be to realize how and why propaganda works, and to wake up so
we're no longer affected by it. Religious people swallow down teachings
from the pulpit. Evolutionists swallow down claims from "scientists".
People need to wake up and smell the roses. Which have every chance of
being artificially scent-enhanced and colored.
