The Nature of Existence - Synopsis
"If an individual has faith that he is Napoleon, then you say
he's loony. But if a hundred million people have faith in some
god, then because it's a hundred million, you're supposed to
respect it. But there's actually no more evidence for their
god, than for the lunatic's belief that he's Napoleon."
Richard Dawkins, in "The Nature of Existence"
What if you asked the religious experts, gurus, scientists, and
atheists of the world why we exist, and what are we supposed to
do about it? What started the Universe, and was it a mistake?
Does God exist, and why does he seem so interested in our sex
lives? Who do you think wins that debate? After exploring the
phenomenon of Trekkies, filmmaker Roger Nygard journeyed to the
source of each of the world's belief systems, to find people
who have influenced, inspired, and freaked out humanity
Including high-profile atheists such as Stanford physicist
Leonard Susskind (co-discoverer of string theory), Harvard
Psychologist Daniel Gilbert (Stumbling on Happiness),
monologist Julia Sweeney (Letting Go of God), film director
Irvin Kershner (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back), author Ann
Druyan and wife of the late Carl Sagan), evolutionary Biologist
Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), and many more .
