I'd like to see the producers of this show to do an episode on religion . Now that would show some guts .

Month ago
Rich Dandanell
Rich Dandanell

Not so , When someone makes a claim the burden of proof is on them to show what they claim is true . But aside from that we have evidence that the bible plagiarizes some of the stories are from older belief's . Like the Noah flood myth is a bastardization of the epic of Gilgamesh . Plus all the geologic and biologic evidence shows the Noah flood story never happened . We can go through most of the biblical claims and myths such as Jonah and the whale , the book of genesis and the tower of Babble etc..... and show how they contradicted everything we've come to know about reality and nature and does not warrant belief . The power of prayer , near death experiences and faith healing are constantly being proven false and the lie that faith is a good pathway to truth can easily be shown to be false . Also it can be shown that all gods and religions are early man's first attempt as an answer to the things they didn't understand like lightning , sickness and volcano's . And how religions evolved into the gigantic face we see today . The series can also expose the corruption and hypocrisy that is rampant in most religions . The show can demonstrate the all gods are more then likely a panacea that is an answer for anything but actually explains nothing and not worthy of belief . I think there's no end of material for this show as far as religion goes .

The thing is, religions are pretty vague. We can't tell if some of the stories are made up or based on true events. Maybe there was a Jesus like person who existed during that time and was just a pretty good healer. Who knows. Religions are so old that it's basically impossible to say anything factual about them, since we don't really know what actually happened.

Month ago
Rich Dandanell
Rich Dandanell

Well good , that's a start . But I think they'd have enough material to spend a whole season ruining the delusion of religion . Controversial , yes the truth hurts so times . But the truth is better then fiction when dealing with reality every time .

Doesn't everyone think it was actually smart to establish a village where there was a village? Why go somewhere else when there's a place that's abandoned and ready to reestablish? Adam Ruins everything come on. I guess we should all feel ashamed buying used houses instead of building our own. Lmao dumb

I feel like that was out of necessity than respect, you don't exactly want rotting disease filled bodies open to the air like that. even if they didn't know of biology back then, the smell would have been reason enough to rebury them.

To Christians, the pagans are infidels. So, digging up a heathen grave is not inappropriate to them. Now, the Christians have mostly abandoned their religion. So, what the pilgrims (more like invaders) did is now considered bad. The medieval Christians were just like today's Muslims.

They arrived in late November, so it was already a survival situation for them. Also, they resolved to compensate the natives (in full) when they got the chance. The disease spread from 1616-1619 before they even got there. Then half of the Pilgrims died. So. Doesn’t using the resources available to them , make them resourceful?

Telling the story from uk’s side and we thought they were to religious and boring as we enjoyed fun so we were like leave please or cheer up so they left to the Netherlands. In the Netherlands they felt left out so they decided they wanted somewhere that they could rule them selves so they went to your nation. Basically you are the offspring of English rejects

Let's not forget the first settlers, with all that in favour tried to employ a primitive form of communism "from each according to their means to each according to their needs", as it turned out that killed off incentive and despite having such a favourable head start the first wave of settlers suffered horribly at the eventual food scarcity. They then moved into a different model, what you produce if yours and you trade it with the others. what happened? no more famine and instead the harvests were so bountyful they had plenty to export, news made it back to the old world and new settlers came to colonize neighbouring patches of land.

They didn't mention that the villagers were wiped out by Eurasian diseases. Europeans tried settling there before a deadly epidemic swept through "New England" and were pushed out back into the sea every time. They also don't teach us that "Squanto" was a slave in Spain and made his way back only to find his homeland ravaged by European disease. He probably learned to speak English from his kidnappers who sold him in a Spanish slave-market. Read Charles Mann's "1491".

Making it sound a lot worse than it really is. Logically, why would you fell a bunch of trees and then build a town when you can use a plot of land that has already been cleared and has also been abandoned to boot. The natives couldn't live there because of disease, of which the pilgrims were probably used to. What is the problem with using that land? They dug up corn and beans, which is bad because? You can use them to grow more. Does adam know that beans and corn kernals are seeds? Why is the assumption that they ate it right there and then?
