'Zeitgeist' is an online movie that attacks the foundations of Christianity. The Zeitgeist movie has been circulating on the internet since 2007. In the video its director, Peter Joseph, seeks to persuade viewers that the authors of the New Testament essentially plagiarized the concept of the virgin birth, December 25 as Christ’s birth date, the twelve disciples, the miracles, the crucifixion, and the resurrection from astrological sources and pagan mythology. Thousands have viewed it but how accurate is it?
In fact, the academic scholarship of the movie is very poor even by non-religious standards.
