Greetings astute traveller, this website now exists for historical reasons.

Much has been learned since 2006. I urge you to keep exploring the evolution of information through other websites.

Good Documentaries
« on: May 21, 2007, 01:26:56 AM »
Here is a list of some documentaries to look out for:

  • BBC - Walking with Caveman
  • BBC - The ascent of man (an old series but a good one)
  • Ray Mears -Extreme Survival
  • Survivorman
  • Man Vs Wild
  • The Century of Self

I'll add more as I think of them, got any suggestions?

Man's First Diet (BBC)
http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2006/06_june/01/diet.shtml

"The Paleolithic diet is the only one that fits ideally into our genetic make-up. Man's First Diet will find out how difficult it is for eight people to revert back to the Paleolithic diet."

Sadly the group really didn't take advantage of their unique opportunity.

Those are great, I checked them out!

Here are some other good ones, mainly dealing with human consumption/corruption/etc:

These are online, and the first one is only 20 minutes! (The second one, Zeitgeist I and II, are very intense, but have definitely changed my view of the world.)

http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/

I also recommend:

The Corporation      (about corporate greed)
The Beautiful Truth      (about healing cancer with whole foods!)
Collapse    (a pretty frightening but beautiful political documentary that just came out)

I also liked the recent Michael Moore film: Capitalism, a Love Story.  I usually dislike talking or thinking about anything that has to do with money or politics (why ruin a beautiful day?), but unfortunately, money and politics define our current system.

Here is a 20/20 episode with John Stossel(might as well be a documentary) that is about the topic of greed.  It's somewhat of a different perspective when compared to the normal perception of greed, but I found it very eye opening.

Awesome to hear Matt. It lifts my spirits to see other people want to make a difference too.
