The God Who Wasn’t There – A Clip

August 18th, 2010

I finally was able to watch this movie. I got it from Netflix.  You can watch the entire film online here.  It’s well worth the time.  I wish I could watch it with several different people that I know just for the conversation it would inspire.


  • Sharon:

    I haven’t had a chance to watch this but I wanted to share something funny with you

  • Martha in Kansas:

    You find the best stuff! I love the narrator’s clipped way of speaking. And the use of old movie clips. And the music. Now I’m wanting to post this to Facebook, just to see what people say. (I rarely make political statements there. Time to shake things up.) Maybe can watch the whole film over the weekend. Thanks for the link.

    By the way, I recently found a snow globe with the last supper inside. I think you need it. So inspiring!

    Hi Rechelle,

    I’ve been meaning to contact you for a while to share some atheism sources you might be interested in checking out. Below are a few from the top of my head:

    “The Root of All Evil? Part 1: The God Delusion” by Dawkins — Full video can be viewed here:

    It’s far better than “The God Who Wasn’t There.”

    Also, I was disappointed in Religulous by Bill Maher.

    “Letting Go of God” by Julia Sweeney is pretty decent. Amazon has it in both CD and DVD format.

    “Jesus Camp” — Worth watching, but very disturbing.

    “2000 Years of Disbelief” –Fabulous book of quotes!

    “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris

    “The Jesus Puzzle: Did Christianity Begin with a Mythical Christ? Challenging the Existence of an Historical Jesus” by Earl Doherty

    “Atheist Universe” by David Mills

    “Infidel” by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    Freedom From Religion Foundation–
    *Also worth reading is Dan Barker’s book, “Losing Faith in Faith.” It’s basically the story of how he went from being an evangelical preacher to an atheist. He has a newer book out that I haven’t read yet that is receiving positive reviews — “Godless: How an Evangelical Preacher Became One of America’s Leading Atheists.” Sounds like it’s a rehash of his first book. Might be worth a read though.

    Also, read some of Robert Ingersoll’s work. What a masterful wordsmith he was!

    Take care.

    Evelyn — a happy atheist living in Mich.
