Director: Richard Denton
Stars: Jonathan Miller
Jonathon Miller is a neurologist and playwright. And he has been an Atheist all his life.
He conducts these interview in the homes of philosopher Colin McGinn, author Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, playwright Arthur Miller, theologian Denys Turner and physicist Steven Weinberg. These discussions are very casual, honest, candid and informative. The thoughts of Atheists, philosophers, scientists, playwrights and theologians in one video.
I came away with some new outlook, not on the existence of God but on ‘his’ as they all called ‘him’ personality if you will. I learned more about the views of different ‘religions’ I guess you would say how what these men did for a living didn’t dictate their religious beliefs but how their religious beliefs dictated what they did for a living. How as the grew up their education is what changed their religious views not how they grew up. I walked away going hmmmmm and my teenage daughter walked away enlightened.
This in my opinion is what a good documentary does. I give it 5 stars. Excellent.
You can watch it online or Netflix.
