Jonathan Miller’s Brief History of Disbelief
Part I: Shadows of Doubt
Over the next three days, I am going to be posting an episode of this great classic. Even if you’ve seen it before, it is worth watching again.
From The BBC:
In this first ever television history of disbelief, Jonathan Miller goes on a journey exploring the origins of his own lack of belief and uncovering the hidden story of atheism.
Shadows of Doubt
Jonathan Miller visits the absent Twin Towers to consider the religious implications of 9/11 and meets Arthur Miller and the philosopher Colin McGinn. He searches for evidence of the first ‘unbelievers’ in Ancient Greece and examines some of the modern theories around why people have always tended to believe in mythology and magic.
