The documentary of the week is Jimmys GM food fight, and is about genetically modified food. Is it a good or a bad thing? Does it help the enviorment, or does it harm it? Is it dangerous? All of these questionsn Jimmy tries to answer in this documentary. And wether or not you are for or against (or something in between) genetic engineering of food I highly recommend it. You can see it here!
This documentary of the week is The enemies of reason, where Richard Dawkins, a highly intelligent evolutionary biologist and the worlds most prominent atheist, takes on new age religion, astrology, the belief in healing, and simular non-scientific believes. You can see it here!
Can we cure aging? That’s the theme of this weeks documentary. Some scientists think that we will be able to do this in the foreseeable future, and think it’s likely that many of the people who already are alive today will live on for thousands of years.
The documentary of the week is Welcome to North Korea, which is about how it is to live in the last Stalinist nation on earth.
As all of my two readers must have noticed this blog hasn’t really been updated for a while. I’ve been busy with other things, and haven’t gotten this blog started like I planed to. But now I’m going all in.
One of the things I’m going to do on this blog is to “show” a documentary every Saturday. I’ll start with one of my favorite documentaries, The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, which can be seen here.
It’s about Robert McNamara, who died at the age of 93 in 2009. He participated in World War II. He was president of Ford Motor Company. He was secretary of defense under The Vietnam War and The Cuban missile crisis. He was head of The World Bank. In this movie he looks back at what he has experienced and share some of the lessons he has learned from his life.
Here are some excerpts from the documentary:
