Why The Principle is the Most Dangerous Movie Ever
Why is The Principle so dangerous? Why is there a media blackout about The Principle? The media is not blacking out Citizenfour, an interesting and positive documentary about Edwards Snowden, a man practically accused of being a traitor to the United States by some and hero by others. The media had no problem praising Brokeback Mountain, a very pro-homosexual movie.The media did not hush up The Cider House Rules, a movie that presented a “loving” side to abortion. Sure, they did produce some ruckus around The Passion of Christ, as well as some criticism of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, but they did not in the end go silent on them. Part of the reason for the last two, is that they just could not succeed, and eventually that will happen with The Principle (and it is already starting).
The interesting question is why is The Principle so controversial- a simple film about cosmology? What controversial topic does The Principle deal with? Not treason or releasing government secrets to the enemy; not homosexuality; not abortion; nothing that could be called anti-semitic; there were one time statements by some of the interviewees that perhaps they were misled in the interviews or that bits and pieces of interviews were patched together form the internet, the strongest of those which were withdrawn after the fact (see this). Journalists often interview people about uncomfortable topics- this is called investigative journalism, and it often uncovers crimes and corruption. These journalists are often lauded as heroes.
The answer is very simple. The Principle asks uncomfortable questions relating to the very nature of man, God, and the universe, and garners answers that are very different than the mythology that has been painstakingly and at great cost developed over the last four centuries.
The Principle demolishes in 90 minutes in the imago Dei minds of men what took 400 years of stubbornly crafted propaganda to create.
Even as experiment after experiment and observation after observation began challenging the mythology, science itself was modified to maintain the myth, and all aspects of society were conscripted to maintain it.
