    I urge everyone to watch this movie and post your thoughts about it.

    It's a load of bull.

    Many agree that much of their "facts" are fabricated, and that 9/11 conspiracy bit didn't do too well for their credibility.


    Whence comes this logic: no evidence = false?

    What does 9/11 have to do with this?

    Prepared to be shocked.

    I also advise you to do some research on what critics have to say.

    They have some good points, but many of their facts are fabricated, so their credibility is really dubious.

    Argh, why does the movie start with interesting things about Jesus and Egypt parallells, then start to talk A LOT about 9/11. *Annoyed*

    But ignoring the 9/11 stuff... What about everything else?

    After 9/11 I stopped watching it.

    I think someone said they start going into some stuff about education. Not sure, though.

    watched the whole thing, they start talking about the history of the federal banking system. quite interesting, although i'll have to check with sources, what parts are true, and which are fabricated,
    and there was also talks about, and some newsreels of a union between canada, mexico and USA, similar to the european union, with a new currency called the "amero"

    then there was something about the rockefellers, and a future incident in venezuela.

    there was also statements that the USD was on loan from the federal bank, and that accepting the USD, was putting everyone in debt.
    and that older dollar bills, said it was reclaimable in gold, while newer dollar bills was the prime unit of value.

    Yeah I watched it all. I'm surprised you mentioned it here. I thought about it but, well... never mind.

    Anyways, I did look up the North American Union and found some stuff.

    The religion stuff is interesting though. However, if it is true it seems there would have had to be someone who had an amazing level of intelligence for their time to come up with all the stories. maybe someone like God?

    I know the RFID stuff is coming out and also there are electronics in all knew American Passports (it says in the passport not to bend it or you will damage the electronics; I know because I have one).
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    the video also mentioned how wars benefitted the banks, and in WW1, the central bank made 3.2 trillion dollars.
    it said something about the banks wanting wars to be sustained, for maximum profit, and always ushering the states into wars.

    Ignoring the 9/11 part, everything else seems to be rather interesting.
