Atheist Documentaries!
What are the best Atheist or extreme religious (like exposing the extremism) documentaries? I've seen Dawkins movies, Jesus camp, the two on westburo baptist church, oh and just started collision, and Religulous.

A good start: Jonathan Miller
and if you want to go deeper: try this

It's not the mean god I have trouble with - it's the people who worship a mean god.

Everything about communism might be interesting (sorry if I get boring with this, right now) because that is where the state becomes the religion, and the great leader some sort of god-figure. Interesting phenomenon, especially how they keep that image. Can't really give an example right now, but just search on youtube, you will get hundrets of hits.

If I find some I'll post them here. Until then I'm subscribing to this thread.

The God who wasn't there.

That's a documentary of a guy interviewing people he knew, scientists, and religious figures dealing with his reasons for disbelieving.

Are you thinking of Fascism? Because Communism is a form of socialism with totalitarian regime in charge like China. I mean they do like being considered god, and it is put off like they are with the manipulation of information, like when all those students were killed and then the government told the people that people from Taiwan had invaded and thats who they were killing. Then parents were notified of the kids deaths but were never told they were shot, they would not allow them to see the body of their child, and would make up like a car accident or something. China also has a crazy Nationalistic society too though. But technically I don't think Communism would be the state becomes a religion or that the leader becomes a god anymore then in any totalitarian dictator. However, it's been a while since my International Relations and Sociology class, so send me a like so I can see what you are reading.

Atheist Documentaries!
The Atheist Tapes is a great series of interviews with atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Daniel Dennett and others.
It's an addendum to the Jonathan Miller doc that Peterkin mentioned above.

Nova has an awesome episode called The Bible's Buried Secrets. Exposing how made up the Old Testament is.
