In addition to the numerous supposed “debunking” sites are images that purport to refute the first or religion part of the first “Zeitgeist” film (“ZG1.1″). We have already demonstrated the brief summary contentions in ZG1.1 to be largely accurate. In addition to numerous articles and a nearly 600-page book on the subject, as well as a 100+-page sourcebook, videos and radio programs, we have put together a huge resource on our forum. Please feel free to pass around any of the relevant links at any time where you see disinformation and misinformation regarding the comparative religion and mythology summarized in the film.

Below is my refutation of one of the images being passed around. The original purported refutation, which I have relabeled “Pseudoscholarship,” was so bad that its writer did not know there were different Horuses, depicted Isis’s impregnation vulgarly as “fucking,” and displayed other shortcomings that demonstrate s/he was not a scholar or expert on the pertinent subjects. In a word, the writer is a victim of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing, as s/he apparently scanned encyclopedia entries for a couple of hours before s/he decided s/he was an authority on the matter. Shallow skimming of encyclopedias does not make an expert of anyone. It takes many years and expertise in multiple disciplines to know this information, including the ability to work in several languages.
