Kate Mulgrew, aka Captain Janeway, Thinks Sun Revolves Around Earth.

synaptik (125) writes | about 5 months ago


synaptik (125) writes "A new documentary film, narrated by a former Star Trek actress, promotes the long-ago disproven idea that the sun revolves around the Earth. 'Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong,” says actress Kate Mulgrew as she narrates the trailer for “The Principle.' The film, which is set to be released sometime this spring, was bankrolled in part by the ultra-conservative and anti-Semitic Robert Sungenis, who maintains the blog 'Galileo Was Wrong.'"

Could of gone without the youtube video (0)

Not sure what shows for you but to the right was "Growing Up Without A Face" for me, while upbeat I couldn't watch it.

Two of those on the youtube trailer are part of "How the universe works" (Shaun Trevisick and Lawrence Krauss) They interviewed these people once, then use bits and pieces of it, as a show dictates. I'm sure they wouldn't be associate with a program that claims the Sun revolves around Earth, and if so you'll hear from them.

Up voted for that reason:
"The trailer also features theoretical physicist Michio Kaku as well as cosmologists Lawrence Krauss and Max Tegmark. We’re going to hope that they maybe didn’t know they were going to be in a movie " []

Shaun Trevisick = Michio Kaku if you Google search Shaun Trevisick then go to images Michio Kaku picture is shown and how I named them.

Submitter here. I concur-- the trailer seems to be bits and pieces of other interviews, stitched together out of context. Perhaps this production will get sued out of existence before it is ever released. But my point had to do with Kate Mulgrew, who has apparently been hired to do narration, and thus is apparently OK with it.
