Spotlight: The Principle

January 26th, 2015

The Principle

Are we significant? This is a question mankind has been wondering for a long time, especially since we began to discover other planets and galaxies. That's the question that this new movie, The Principle attempts to answer. The synopsis for this film reads:

""The Principle" brings to light astonishing new scientific observations challenging the Copernican Principle; the foundational assumption underlying the modern scientific world view. The idea that the Earth occupies no special or favored position in the cosmos has launched the last two scientific revolutions - the Copernican Revolution and Relativity - and, as Lawrence Krauss has said, we could be on the verge of a third, with "Copernicus coming back to haunt us". Interviews with leading cosmologists are interspersed with the views of dissidents and mavericks, bringing into sharp focus the challenges and implications not only for cosmology, but for our cultural and religious view of reality."

This movie is premiering in a few locations this week. Hopefully, once it gains traction, they'll be able to bring it to many more theaters around the country.
