[Per an advance preview:]  If you believe the world is only the way it’s depicted in the Bible, you'll likely HATE this movie-- since it follows a general Khodranite position of, The Bible was compiled over time by "COMMITTEES"...

...  MAHER was raised as a Catholic, & since has become skeptical of most of the precepts he was taught...

...  He visits various places in the world to interview a variety of people about their religion, & works to show (with thought-provoking humor) how many of the beliefs thru the ages have been based on superstitions & clearly INACCURATE after-the-fact claims...

...  Maher also shows how certain precepts & beliefs were at time based on ideas seen in OTHER religions, citing how various cultures had WRITTEN reports many hundreds of years BEFORE Christianity of well-known characters who were RESURRECTED [such as Egypt’s Horus], who were born on Dec. 25th, who walked on "water", etc....

...  He’s an equal-opportunity DEBUNKER of ideas and statements re MANY religions & beliefs. If you can keep a really open mind, you’ll likely appreciate what he’s done here.
