Dr Hiten Soni sent me an email a few weeks ago when he had watched the film "Man from Earth" so excited about its weirdness. He thought we weird people should watch this together and then discuss it -weird? So I agreed.
Dr. Soni is so much fun at every other talk with the Skeptics I wouldn't miss this on a dare!
Come JOIN US!~ We'll go out afterward for drinks at a local Pub for more weird talk.
ABOUT FILM:

Plot:
The movie begins with Professor John Oldman (David Lee Smith) packing his belongings onto his truck, preparing to move to a new home. His colleagues show up to give him an impromptu farewell party: Harry (John Billingsley), a biologist; Edith (Ellen Crawford), an art history professor and devout Christian; Dan (Tony Todd), an anthropologist; Sandy (Annika Peterson), a historian who is in love with John; Dr. Will Gruber (Richard Riehle), a psychiatrist; Art (William Katt), an archaeologist; and his student Linda (Alexis Thorpe).
As John's colleagues continue to pressure him for the reason for his departure, John slowly, and somewhat reluctantly, reveals that he is a prehistoric "caveman" who has lived for more than 14 millennia and that he relocates every 10 years to keep others from realizing that he does not age. He begins his story under the guise of a possible science-fiction story, but he eventually stops speaking in hypotheticals and begins answering questions from a first-person perspective. His colleagues refuse to believe his story. John continues his tale, stating that he was once a Sumerian for 2000 years, then a Babylonian under Hammurabi, then a disciple of Gautama Buddha. He claims to have known Christopher ColumbusVan Gogh (from which he apparently owns a painting as a gift from the artist himself), and other famous historical figures.
