iGod

People have been asking questions about the nature of God since the dawn of humankind. And even though our world has seen many advances in both science and technology over the last few centuries, disagreements about God still, to this day, lead to ethnic and religious warfare, hatred, exploitation, the suppression of women, and the debasing of human dignity. Many religions have created rituals and dogmas that separate one from the other, and they often cling to the belief that only they have the answers, the correct explanations, the one truth. But are any of them actually right? Can the true nature of God ever truly be understood or explained?

This documentary traces the origins of the concepts of God, and how the various belief systems have evolved into what exists in the present day. The questions that so many of us have asked are also explored in depth–questions that have plagued many of our greatest thinkers, spiritual leaders, and philosophers for thousands of years: What does God truly want? Are we judged by God after we die? Is there an absolute right and wrong? Why is there both good and evil in the world, and why would God allow so much suffering to take place? Is there a devil? Is there really a heaven and a hell? Are we one with God? Why do people believe what they believe?

iGod explores the diverse beliefs about the Divine by asking these questions to regular folks, religious leaders/members of the clergy, and best-selling spiritual authors like Neale Donald Walsch, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Gregg Braden, Rabbi Michael Lerner, James Van Praagh, Alan Cohen, Amit Goswami, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. Perhaps through this exploration we can finally begin to understand what God really is, what God wants, who we really are, and why we are here.
