The Modern Shaman- Who Wrote the Bible?

Extremely interesting documentary that leads one man on a journey to discover the origins of the many documented and admitted edits of the Bible. Excellent food for thought no matter your spiritual school of preference.

A book about this subject also seems to be available. I haven't read it, but have included the link in case it can be useful info to anyone interested in researching the origins of the Bible.

This should be interesting, I took a few theology classes and it helps a lot with balancing the historical bible with the spiritual bible.

It's a good film. The man reporting from it is a Christian who also took Theology and needed to find the truth. He still maintains spirituality as I can tell, but he uncovered some things that priests and scholars have known for some time...somehow this info is only now reaching the masses of church folk, and spiritual people who follow alot of Divinely inspired writings.

It would be great if the entire Bible was available but it's been edited sooo much and there are plageurisms (the Vatican admitted to 14 plageuerisms in the early 1900's) as well.

God is love, so as far as I'm concerned the truth will continue to come out so that people are educated and not 'controlled' by those who use religion for the opposite of spiritual reasons.

Love prevails. It's the heartbeat in everything. I'm with anything that promotes this in a real way, and focuses on solid ways to grow in compassion and wisdom, you know?

Apologies on the spelling errors. I could delete it and repost it but I've been in Customer Service limbo most of the day, and then in installation terrain for the new Ubuntu software I'm running for the pc. I'm a little ti'ed, and must be lax if I'm to get to sleep anytime soon...
