Film #311: THE SCIENCE OF EVIL
National Geographic: Science of Evil
3 out of 5 stars
National Geographic presents an analysis of the nature of “evil” via social pressures, financial pressures, and physical manifestations (ala neural mapping). Interviews with people like a UN Aid Worker, the minister who conducted a baptism for Jeffrey Dahmer, and The Stanford Experiment’s Philip Zimbardo. While it offers no definitive answers, it does present some interesting insights. One annoying thing though is that the studies are broken up and interlaced between one another which breaks up the impact of the point. Fascinating for anyone who is interested in right/wrong, theology, and the interaction of the human animal.
