The God Who Wasn’t There

While browsing through winamp’s Internet TV selection, I came across an interesting video stream. No, I’m not talking about the derth of free porn, but the stream for infidelguy. I caught the tail end of a broadcast about a movie being released called The God Who Wasn’t There. The video stream spot was trying to pass across the idea of a ‘netroot’ campaign of screenings; grassroot promotion of an independent movie. I watched the trailer (low quality) and I must say that I’m intrigued.
The premise of the movie is that Jesus is fictional, and that God doesn’t exist. For a long time, I didn’t really believe that he actually existed. Over the last couple of years I have come to the conclusion that he probably did exist, but that instead of of being the son of God, was actually just a philosopher who had some good ideas. To go back to the thought that he was fictional is an interesting one, and I look forward to this movie’s release. I might be motivated enough to organize a screening myself in Winnipeg.

I like to look at humanity as a whole. I understand that in our global society, the notion of nations is fast becoming a detriment to our progress, but what exactly is this niggling need for nationalism? Is it as simple as needing someone to compare oneself against to find some solace in judgement? Or is just a throwback to outdated cultures?
