Humanities Project Meeting: Film 'The God Who Wasn't There'

Humanities Project Monthly Cultural Presentation & Meeting

Summertime is Movie Time!

The God Who Wasn't There

Former fundamentalist Christian Brian Flemming places the core concepts of his former religion under the microscope in a documentary that attempts to do for religion what Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me did for the fast-food industry. In his bold quest to seek answers to the difficult questions that few are willing to pose, Flemming is joined by Deconstructing Jesus author Robert M. Price, renowned historian Richard Carrier, and The End of Faith author Sam Harris. From the ignorance of many contemporary Christians as to the origin of their religion to the striking similarities between Jesus Christ and the deities worshipped by ancient pagan cults and the Christian obsession with blood and violence, this faith-shaking documentary explores the many mysteries of the Christian faith as never before. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Documentary; 1 hour, 2 minutes; directed by Brian Flemming

**Update: Beginning in July 2014, our meetings will take place on the 2nd Friday of each month.**

The HSGP Humanities Project holds free and open meetings on the 2ndd Friday of each month at 7pm at HCC. All are invited to attend. The majority of the evening is given over to one or more of our HSGP members or guests to share with us some aspect of arts & humanities that they are passionate about! After the fun, we do (very brief) planning/announcing of future events. Total meeting time approximately 2 hours.

The HSGP Humanities Project will procure speakers to present arts & humanities related talks at one or more Sunday Speaker meetings during the year.

We will plan and execute at least one fundraiser for HSGP.

Throughout the year we will plan many free or inexpensive excursions to various arts & humanities events in and around the Valley for those who wish to participate.

On occasion we may hold fun artsy events at the HCC.

Hosted by Mike Franklin and your HSGP Humanities Project Committee.

    I found the film fascinating. Plus, largely unrelated to the topic, I loved the music.

    Good film! Scenes from Passion of the Christ were horrific! Sick and scary.

    I enjoyed seeing the film...though I found it a little in-your-face intense at times.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
