I have watched the new movie Agora several times. It is one of those movies that the more times you see it the more you see. As one of the members remarked at our last meeting, it will definitely not be shown here in Minot. I recommend you get it on Netflix or buy it from one of the outlets. The subtitles and the meaning becomes deeper every time you see it. It becomes an analogy for the religions today, particularly Islam and fundamentalist Christianity. But could for any other religion. The so called religions of peace. How the psychological hold a cleric can have over followers, as manifested in the atrocities they are willing to do for them. The need for them to control the lives of everyone, not with just being content with being the sheep's confessors. How minot insults escalate into major confrontations that even governments cannot control. All in the name of some invisible Deity. The assigning of cause and reward to these invisible dieties, when in reality it is the human cause that is at the root. The fear that is propagated by these clerics in the name of their respective Deity. The curse of humanity to have invented such deities.
