2019 DOCUMENTARY THREAD

That's an easy one -- Xtians have indoctrinated their children to conform and obey for centuries, and most of them practice the exact opposite of what they preach. Growing up in America and witnessing the utter hypocrisy of popular, widespread Christianity, I'm surprised there aren't MORE Satanists and atheists out there... but then, humans tend to be pretty fucking stupid, so as you said, here we are.

That's more of a problem of the ones that shout the loudest get heard the most. I live in a Buddhist country and we have the exact same problem here. I can 100% understand the sentiment but don't let yourself believe that all religious people are bad or self-serving because that's far from the truth. If Satanists or atheists ever become the majority I think we'd still have the same problems where splinter groups split off with their own agenda. As you inferred in the last sentence, it's more about the people than it is about the religion itself.

Which is funny because in the movie there's even a splintering of the Temple that occurs and they have to deal with as the movie is shot

Watched this series yesterday.   Just a great documentary about the build up and the actual landing on the moon in 1969.  No idea that the majority of people heavily into the space program was former Nazis

Yup.  I'd highly recommend you read (or listen to the audiobook of) Operation Paperclip.  It's one of those super awkward open secrets.  

Hell, Archer made the joke about it a few years ago.

I watched episodes 1 & 2 so far and both were very good, if you have Apple TV or a Smart TV you can watch it via the PBS app. 

That Wernher von Braun and others were Nazi's wasn't that much of a secret, I assume that the Texans who decide what goes in text books have been leaving that part out for the past 30 years.

They did von Braun (or one of those Nazis) on an episode of Drunk History that I saw recently, too

I am through the first two parts.

Yeah, the von Braun and Debus stuff was fascinating.

I am also thoroughly pissed off by how Ed Dwight was treated. 

Even though I saw First Man, hearing the audiotape and seeing the aftermath of Apollo 1 was still gutwrenching.

Armstrong

Since we are talking moon landing docs

That one has Harrison Ford narrating anytime they use Neil Armstrong's written words
