i'm posting this in general chat because i thought it would interest non-muslims too.
i came across these videos on the web. i've watched the first 2 and i thought they were pretty decent. has anyone seen these?
they are narated by ben kingsley. each one is 50+ minutes.

I watched the first one. I thought it was such a brilliant piece of propaganda that I felt no need to watch any more.

Good fodder for the believer.

hmmmm....... You don't have to believer to enjoy, but I think you have to be a believer to believe all that is presented. :D

what parts did you think were propaganda? it didn't really conflict with anything that i've learned.
oh well, to each their own - we don't need to fight about it.

It has been over a year since I saw it. But as I remember I was put off by the "Perfect" aspect of it. :skeleton:

Also, I wasn't looking for a fight and especially not with you. :-[


Peace

it wasn't perfect - for example it said that the nutty destruction of a church in jerusalem set off the crusades.
naw, no fight. i was just curious what specifically you found incorrect.

No offence, but you're being very closed-minded about it.
No offence taken and you would be right.

In my opinion perfection and religion go hand in hand just like a fish and a bicycle.

But no more of this. I have spoken my opinion, it is time for others.

The Pope didn't pay 'em. It was Osama Bin Laden!

Though statements like that are meant in humour, people can easily misunderstand them on the Internet, so I think we should refrain from making them :)
