One memorable documentary of God that I could never forget.
I have been an atheist for quite some time and when I looked at the documentary and its question of what is God, it got me quite interested. However, this movie was truly remarkable: it discussed the notion of God as well as complications of who God is and yet, tells what God may be.
The one thing that truly amazed me was the scenery and the serene atmosphere. It captivated me beyond my wildest dreams, be it the extreme snow-covered mountains of the Himalayas, or the lush, mountainside areas of North America. The documentary explores many countries and we are given a basic knowledge of who God really is in different cultures. For some it may be offering a sacrifice to please a deity and for some, it is a "guidance from above", as stated by a Mexican. The whole Israel-Palestine issue and the concerning fact of the whole Muslim-extremists issue, which was quite interesting, are also mentioned here. The cancer segment gave tears to my eyes. For those who don't believe in a God may feel outraged-- it may influence the person into believing something that doesn't exist. However, we are encouraged to make our own opinion of God: he could very well "represent that which we all are."
In the end, the documentary tries to convey one thing to us: we should all be united as one. We can't be divided by boundaries if we are to live in an utopia society. If you're religious, then you should use God as that uniting force and embrace one another as neighbors, not fear that calling God in some other religion is offensive. If you don't believe in a superior power, that's even better-- believe in peace and love if we are to achieve a harmonious world.
