Unmistaken Child

Quote:
The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most westerners to grasp. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the 4-year search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk's devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master's reincarnation. Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable quest on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. Along the way Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special characteristics, and performs rarely seen ritualistic tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. He eventually presents the child he believes to be his reincarnated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision.

Stunningly shot, UNMISTAKEN CHILD is a beguiling, surprising, touching, even humorous experience.

Yeah that was a tough part, he obviously didn't want his mom to leave.

If interested, this is Geshe Tenzin Zopa's website.

And here is Tenzin Phunstock Rinpoche's website.

An hour long BBC documentary where five British creationists are taken on a road-trip to the West coast of America to meet with scientists and view evidence of evolution to have their views challenged.

Yeah, he was unbelievably defensive throughout the whole thing and of them all seemed the most determined to not even listen to the evidence.

The most interesting part to me (from a psychological/why do people believe? pov) was when one of the women was obviously starting to realise that her views were being completely contradicted by all the evidence and that her beliefs were geniunely being challenged. She said something like "I can see the point all these people are making and the evidence looks pretty compelling, but if I accept that, I have to accept that the rest of my faith is all wrong too" and the reply from the other woman was along the lines of "it's best not to think about it".

For ppl in the UK, Richard Dawkins program on More4 on Monday night at 10pm.

Quote:
Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life

Ideas about the soul and the afterlife, of sin and God's purpose have shaped human thinking for thousands of years. Religious rituals remain embedded in the major events of our lives.

In this thought-provoking series, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins asks what happens if we leave religion behind. He explores what reason and science might offer to inspire and guide our lives in religion's place.

Can science bring understanding in the face of death, help us tell right from wrong, or reveal the point of life in the first place?

In a journey that takes him through visually stunning locations across the world, Richard Dawkins builds a powerful argument for facing up to the scientific truth about life and death - however hard that might be.

If there is no God watching us, why be good? Richard Dawkins is taking on the big questions of life and, in this opening programme, he examines sin.

He asks whether the old religious rules about what is right and wrong are helpful and explores what reason science can tell us about how to be good.

Dawkins journeys from riot-torn inner city London to America's Bible Belt, building a powerful argument that religion's absolutist moral codes fuel lies and guilt.

He finds the most extreme example in a Paris plastic surgery clinic which specialises in making Muslim brides appear to be virgins once again.

But what can science and reason tell us about morality? Through encounters with lemurs, tango dancers, the gay rights campaigner Matthew Parris and the scientist Steven Pinker, Dawkins investigates the deeper roots of moral behaviour in our evolutionary past.

He explores the rituals that surround mating and the science of disgust and taboo. Drawing on crime data and insights from neuroscience, he argues that our evolved senses of reason and empathy appear to be making us more and more moral, even as religious observance declines.

I don't know if this video is an indictment of the Jehovah's Witnesses views on secular education (she was raised in a strict JW household), or just Sherri Shepherd in general, but wow...

So I got this and it's a flaming pile of crap. There is a lot of social Darwinist BS in it. It has some good points in it but all of those are fairly obvious. This is certainly not a good religion for an atheist like it claims.

Given the recent discussion of Derren Brown, here's his latest offering: Fear and Faith, which "looks at the psychology of religious belief, performs a satanic rite and attempts to give an atheist a religious conversion".
