Darwin's Brave New World (Episode 3) Publish and Be Damned

The arrival of Alfred Russel Wallace's letter in June 1858 has thrown Charles Darwin into panic. This letter threatens to destroy years of work which began on five year voyage in southern hemisphere. Darwin spends the next 20 years painstakingly gathering evidence. He battles illness and the cruel reality of his own theory. But on the other side of the world Alfred Wallace has come up with the almost identical theory. Now Darwin will need the help of his loyal supporters more than ever.

The book which Charles Darwin never meant to write is about to be judged by the outside world.

Darwin's Brave New World (Episode 2) Evolutions

Charles Darwin is facing one of his biggest crisises, Anne, his ten year old daughter is fighting against the mysterious illness. As Annie's life hangs in the balance it's a brutal reminder of everything Darwin has learned in years of search. Nature, not God, determines who survives.

Darwin finds the crucial evidence he desperately needs to prove how evolution and natural selection work in the middle of 19th century.

But first he must test himself and his arguments with his friends and supporters. His race to publish one of the most extraordinary theories of our time just begins.

Living Without God: New Directions for Atheists, Agnostics, Secularists, and the Undecided - Ronald Aronson

"Ronald Aronson demonstrates that atheism represents much more than what one does not believe: that it is the precondition for a generous humanism. The two closing chapters are models of stoicism at its best."
—Christopher Hitchens

Ronald Aronson has a mission: to demonstrate that a life without religion can be coherent, moral, and committed. Optimistic and stirring, Living Without God is less interested in attacking religion than in developing a positive philosophy for atheists, agnostics, secular humanists, skeptics, and freethinkers. Aronson proposes contemporary answers to Immanuel Kant’s three great questions: What can I know? What ought I to do? What can I hope? Grounded in the sense that we are deeply dependent and interconnected beings who are rooted in the universe, nature, history, society, and the global economy, Living Without God explores the experience and issues of 21st-century secularists, especially in America. Reflecting on such perplexing questions as why we are grateful for life’s gifts, who or what is responsible for inequalities, and how to live in the face of aging and dying, Living Without God is also refreshingly topical, touching on such subjects as contemporary terrorism, the war in Iraq, affirmative action, and the remarkable rise of Barack Obama.

COLLISION: Christopher Hitchens vs. Douglas Wilson (2009)

"I think faith is, if it's a virtue at all, and I'm not sure that it is. It's certainly the most overrated of them. Maybe one of the deadly virtues."
Christopher Hitchens

Collision is a perfect example for a documentary looks into the both points of view. Christopher Hitchens is clever and witty. In the first impression, as a debater he looks like that kind of man makes never mistakes, but he has a weary face in comparison to his opponent (I wonder why. Maybe due to the lack of power of faith?). I'm glad that he is on our side. :)

P.S Thanks to AV to inform me that was already released.

Darwin's Brave New World (Episode 1) Origins

"Evolution was damned as being anti-God and anti-science, because it's creation by natural law, not acts of God."

The theory of evolution by natural selection was the most radical idea in the conservative England of the 19th century. Darwin spent years working in secret, painstakingly piecing together proof of his theory about the evolution of life on Earth, a theory that revealed the beauty and cruelty of nature. Darwin knew the power of his work, a work which generated the fiercest debate about the creation which continues to this day.

These new series tell the astonishing and amazing story of this great mind, and the struggle between dogma and reason, featuring acclaimed scientists such as Richard Dawkins, and David Suzuki.

Chocolat (2000)

Serge: We are still married, in the eyes of God.
Josephine: Then He must be blind.

Vianne Rocher and her daughter travel from town to town and open a chocolaterie in each town they visited. They immediately attract attentions, especially due to never visiting the church. This outlander woman changes the routine of a townspeople in the rural France with her ancient recipes forever.

The script is full of clever dialogs, touchs on the sexual/class discrimination and our taboos at the same time. Delightful and charming characters, a moving story and an exotic soundtrack make this work timeless. Juilette Binoche is magical and ethereal in her role. And don't forget the secret weapon: Johnny Depp

I've posted a lot of atheist themed movies or the movies which have a secular language until today, but this one is my special favorite.

P.S. Prepare a small chocolate stock before watching the movie. Believe me, you'll need that! :)
