OK, the world is bristling with conspiracies…from terrorists in the Middle East to bikers in Texas to the leaker’s in the West Wing…. actually the word is overworked…but if you MUST have conspiracy in your life, what about the endless stream of History Channel “exposes” of the Bible?
Seems like some people there are obsessed with what they call secrets, lies and mis-information sometimes they find in the Old & New Testaments…and darned if they don’t sometimes make a good case….such suppressing the role of women, showing how archaeology disproves Biblical stories, raising tough questions about past religious misconduct especially by the Vatican.
What strikes me is how so many of these documentaries allude to the eternal question: Can Humanity prove there is a God….whereas the better question might be, can Humanity prove itself to God?
Now personally I’m not a conspiracy fan, but if you wanted to find one, maybe, just maybe you can concoct a sequel to Dan Brown about a highly secret robed enclave of anti-religion TV writers working out of a hidden room at HBO headquarters
