“Do We Need Religion?”
Web Series & Extended Scenes: http://youtube.com/believersdoc
Since the 2006 publication of Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchens’ 2007 book, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, religion and God as a concept have been very much in the crosshairs of the Western public. These texts, along with Bill Maher’s 2008 film “Religulous”, are often cited as reasons to stop believing in God.
Regardless of one’s opinion of religion or God, there is a lack of understanding and communication of ideology with respect to these concepts.
Believers follows a personal investigation of the world’s five major faith systems, Agnosticism, and the new Atheism.
“I decided to find people to talk to who were reasonable, rational and intelligent, and could respond to my questions without getting angry or offended.”
However, what began as a simple search for the value of religion in the modern world evolved into a personal journey to spirituality.
“In the end, it’s shown me that there’s a lot to know and if I want to be part of this dialogue, and be helpful, I need to give everyone a fair shake.”
This documentary will educate and inform your worldview, as well as challenge what you think you know about Religion.
