REVIEW: Harry Ricker III- John Chappell Natural Philosophy Alliance | The Principle: Challenging The Intellectual Integrity Of Cosmology
This is the best science documentary film that I have ever seen. It puts physical science into its correct and proper place behind philosophy, logic, and religion, instead of superior to them, in terms of the definition of what is truth. It is a film that I wish that I had made, because it makes a difficult and complex technical subject easy to understand, by revealing the prejudicial bias of scientists, who pretend to discover truth based upon proof and evidence, but who really promote preconceived prejudices. It takes cosmology, the science of the universe, out of the hands of experts, and shows that what the experts believe is wrong, and that they base their opinions, not upon scientific facts, but upon unproven assumptions. The main unproved assumption that this film addresses is the Copernican Principle. This is an assumption, unproven of course, that is elevated by scientific language to make it sound like it is something more than just a biased preconceived conclusion without substantiated proof or convincing evidence to justify it.
