Interesting movie, albeit controversial

I've watched this a few times on Youtube. It's long...7.5 hours...there are parts I love and agree with and parts that I'm not so sure about...but it covers so many very wonderful and interesting topics. There is a verison that has it broken down into like 6 chapters...if you'd rather watch in doses. My fav part is the math involved with Coral Castle--which isn't ancient, but is a "wonder"!!

Like would an Angel have any sort of specific birthdate? If they have a specific birthdate, who is tracking this? Would the "Devils Birthday" be the day he was born/created or when he fell from grace? I know this is a little trivial...but it just got me thinking.
