Vive Studios has released its ‘feature-length’ immersive film titled 7 Miracles. On the surface, the immersive film is a reenactment of the Gospel of John in the Bible that specifically centers around the seven miracles of Jesus Christ. Under the surface, however, it uses advanced filmmaking techniques such as photogrammetry and volumetric video capture to achieve 8K imagery.

Directed by Rodrigo Cerqueira and Marco Spagnoli, 7 Miracles was shot across Matera and Rome, both classic locales for returning viewers of The Passion of the Christ and Ben Hur. According to the official blog post, “The seven-part episodic feature runs over 70 minutes, making it the first feature-length cinematic experience from Vive Studios,” and one of the longest immersive films we’ve ever seen.

7 Miracles is also notable for winning the ‘Spirit of Raindance: VR Film of The Festival’ award at Raindance Film Festival 2018, as stated by Vive Studios in their blog post at that time.

While the award-winning biblical reenactment is predominantly meant for consumption via Viveport, where it is sold at $20 as a complete PCVR experience, Android owners can also join in on the gospel for $10 via the Google Play store.

In the future, Vive Studios hopes to bring 7 Miracles to additional platforms such as iOS and the Vive Wave. The studio also promises to introduce post-release content over time, citing ‘new 3D room-scale scenes’ for release with upcoming updates to Viveport users.

Currently, 7 Miracles is only available in English. You can find more information about the immersive experience at its official website.

    So, how can someone watch it on Rift?

    • Immersive_Computing

      Rift users can use Viveport?

    • Press Download in Viveport, then press Play.

      • James

        what about on quest?

        • Viveport is a Windows-based platform, more specifically, SteamVR-based, so there is no common ground between it and Quest.

  • ale bro

    I like 360 content, but am never going to watch this. Religous content is a surprising choice of subject matter.

    It’s clear Vive Studios doesn’t know their audience very well – I suspect VR users are less christian than the general population.

    • jj

      I dont think religion and vr have any kind of correlation… a vr user could literally be any religion at this point there’s no religion that has an opinion on vr.

    • Immersive_Computing

      I am not religious but got to experience “7 Miracles” using a Vive Focus at Raindance VR last Autumn here in London. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience which ran almost 1 hr 20 mins in total, although the crappy ergonomics on the Focus started giving me a nasty headache by the end :(

      This is easily the best 360 content I have seen in terms of sheer production quality, good actors, engaging storyline.

      Strange as it sounds, its wasn’t overtly religious and seemed just to tell a story rather than beat you over the head with messages of God like often happens in many “Christian” movies and TV shows.

      • ale bro

        my point is that religous content is a strange pick for the first feature length movie on viveport

        • Gamer1st1

          Not if they’re looking to put more faces in headsets. The selection makes perfect sense to me. Gets folks who might not normally be into Vr or games to take a look.
          And just because you aren’t into religion, or this one, there’s no reason this shouldn’t be a thing. Plenty of people game, and lots of them are religious. Not everyone is you, or the same.
          Unless you’re saying it shouldn’t exist because you don’t want to see it. In which case you’re in for a hard disappointing life. Or not.

        • Jerald Doerr

          I’m not going to nock it…. But I personally could think of stranger choices…

        • Jeremiah

          Jesus should always be the first choice.

          • NooYawker

            OH yea, this is definitely something someone not religious would say. Please tell me more about how you’re not religious.

        • NooYawker

          Churches are always looking for new tactics to fool people into believing this shit.

          • care package

            ah, so what shit do you believe in?

          • NooYawker

            I believe in humans. I believe it’s up to us to make this world better, not a magical being that tells us to oppress women, gay people or anyone not exactly the same.

          • care package

            Oh ya? And for what reason exactly do you have such faith in humans? Your whole philosophy is faulty. Who decides what is good and/or moral? Society? Man in general? You? lol. What direction do you think man would go in if suddenly all consequence was abolished? That’s not a hard one. What have you done to make the world a better place? Nothing? I’ve seen your hateful posts. Is that part of making the world a better place? lol. Who is telling us to oppress women and gays? Good luck with that faith though.

          • NooYawker

            Ok, 3rd crazy religious nut job to block.

          • care package

            You are clearly the epitome for sanity. Run away then.

      • VR5

        Is it 3d?

      • Moe Curley

        So you ask us to believe that you sat through the whole 120 minutes and say “its wasn’t overtly religious” and “I’m not religious”. Nice try, I’m not buyin it, sorry. Sell that shit elsewhere.

        • Immersive_Computing

          Not selling anything, just reporting on my experience at Rain dance VR festival here in London last autumn. This was the headline experience and its World premiere so of course as a VR enthusiast I wanted to try a big budget production also first time trying a Vive Focus.

          I also tried a dozen of other experiences at the festival…not everything is a religious conspiracy, I’m open to trying all VR experiences, and I have no personal interest in religion, spirituality yes but that’s something else?

    • Jeremiah

      Maybe broaden your horizons a little, I suspect most vr enthusiasts are a tad more open-minded than you’re assuming.

      • ale bro

        my horizons are very broad thank you

        • Jeremiah

          Not from what you wrote, you seem very narrow minded.

      • Rob H

        The sheer irony when someone implies anything to do with religion is “open minded” o.O It’s literally the complete opposite.

        • Jeremiah

          You’re partially right, all religions are man’s attempt at reaching God or thereabouts…Jesus is the Truth so many are looking for, He’s a person and it’s all about relationship, not religion, I hate religion as much as any man.

          Reject religion by all means, but at least give Jesus a go, go right to the source in the Gospel of John. Read what He said and you’ll see He was unique in our history.

          • Rob H

            Please do elaborate on how literally any of what you just said doesn’t just prove my point?

            Religion may as well be the definition of being closed minded. Go ahead, please do tell me why your fictional book should be believed to be an absolute truth over the thousands of other religions that say exactly the same thing that you never bothered to learn a single thing about?

            The complete lack of any logical thinking or common sense in religion is gobsmacking. I grew up in a religious family and was taught in a religious schools and learnt all about the Bible. Much to all of their disappointment, I actually have a functioning brain and could see the sheer ridiculousness of literally everything relating to it all. Looking at your own sacred book, if your God is real, he certainly isn’t “good” and does not deserve worshiped. The Bible teaches God is all knowing and all powerful, so he knows good, innocent people (who also fully believe in him) die in horrible ways every day through things like natural disasters, fatal accidents and diseases like cancer, has the power to stop all of it, but cares so little he just allows them and their families to suffer. I mean, hes even so “good” he’s allowed countless wars to be fought and massacres to be carried out in his name throughout actual history. But yeh, not going to get into a debate into how you may as well just have told me to believe in Harry Potter because I really don’t have the time of day to waste on nutjobs that believe a book written thousands of years ago that tells of a God that murders thousands of innocent children in the opening chapters. That’s without even touching on the blinding similarities between Christian teachings and deities like Mithras who were worshiped thousands of years before Jesus supposedly walked the earth too that you probably never bothered to learn about either (but you’re the open minded one right?).

            No point trying to teach someone who lacks the mental capacity of understanding why they’re so indisputably wrong they can’t already see it for themselves. So please, do go on living in your blissful uneducated ignorance, but don’t try and cram your childish fairytales down someone else’s throat.

          • NooYawker

            dude.. are you seriously going to try to debate with a religious person?? They believe a genie created the world, how do you argue with that?

          • Rob H

            Haha, you’re right. While it’s pointless arguing with people too low of an intelligence to actually understand any application of logic to their beliefs, it is non the less entertaining and makes for a fun pass-time while bored in work.

          • care package

            Dude….are you seriously going to try to debate with a religious person?? They believe genetics intelligently built upon itself without any intelligence from pond scum, even though what is observable in life now completely contradicts it. How do you argue with that? lmao.

          • Rob H

            I’m sorry your brain can’t comprehend how evolution actually works and resort to a children’s story book about a magical being for your explanation instead.

          • care package

            That’s because evolution doesn’t work. Another state funded children’s story book about a magical process that never actually happened. Another great reply though Rob, with some more ad-homs lol. I think the ad-homs actually make you feel better about your own position and self. Keep preaching your belief system though.

          • brubble

            Yeah the pink clouds and magic proofing sparkles everywhere is clearly the more advanced and intelligent angle.

          • Rob H

            Not preaching anything, continue living in your fairytale land where a mythical genie “designed” living creatures, makes no difference to me. You seem super happy living with your delusion so do continue t do so, after all ignorance is bliss.

          • care package

            Guess you need to look up the definition of preach. Just continue living in your fairy tale land where something came from nothing, life came from no life, and genetics some how magically ADDED and arranged itself to the complexity it is today, all by itself lol. You seem super happy living with your delusion. Ignorance is bliss after all. Because of man death and suffering came into the world. Yes life/man is cruel. Figured you’d know why since you’re supposedly so Biblically versed.

          • Rob H

            i mean I wasn’t expecting much intelligence from someone who lacks the brain capacity to understand simple biological principles like mutation, but I thought at least basic reading comprehension might be within your grasp. Apparently not though. Maybe buy a dictionary and look up the word preach, then tel me how replying to someone telling others to become religious is me preaching? Maybe when you get even a basic education, you might actually get to have a normal discussion with someone without coming across as a delusional half-wit. It’s genuinely gobsmacking how low the average IQ of religious communities are.

          • care package

            Ah Rob. Kind of sad you still need to resort to insults lol. If you understood biological principles so well, then you’d know a mutation is a LOSS of ALREADY existing information. Just as it says, MUTATION. Do you know what mutations do? They break things. Mutations are DE-evolution. Try again Rob. Publicly stating your beliefs is one of the definitions for preaching.

          • Rob H

            Did say any insults, literally just stated truths. Sorry you apparently find that insulting. And no, if you’d bother to attend any sort of basic science class, or better yet actually done some studies yourself, you’d know that’s not at all how mutation works. Like I said, maybe when you get even a basic education, you might actually get to have a normal discussion with someone without coming across as a delusional half-wit.

          • care package

            lol keep telling yourself that Rob. I’ve debated guys like you who’s replies are nothing more than generic claims, over and over a.k.a preaching your belief system. Usually it’s because the knowledge they claim to have isn’t really there.

          • Rob H

            Nice attempt at changing the topic to avoid embarrassment! So i take it you never had an education then? No surprise there. Again, might wana buy a dictionary and look up the word “preach” and “hypocrite” while you’re at it ;) Like I said, I don’t care if you wana live your delusion life believing in santa claus and the easter bunny. Really makes no difference to me, i’m just here for the entertainment of watching a walking vegetable trying to argue.

          • Rob H

            Oh and another thing, cos this really made me chuckle…

            Me: Uses the best scientific information available to date to agree with the theory of evolution that over the course of millions of years of genetic mutation life has evolved into the billions of different species we see today. This is all based on actual evidence through things like fossils and carbon dating and just general observation of the natural world – you can literally see it’s happening over the past 100 years of records we have.

            You: Believes something created us using magic because you read it in a book.

            Lets see, which of those claims is “generic”. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

            ;)

          • care package

            Yep you clearly don’t even know wtf you are talking about lol. Science is what can be tested, observed, and repeated. Evolution is none of these things. Try and understand this. I’ll say it one more time. Mutations are a ‘breaking’ of already existing information. In no situation historically or now, does a mutation ADD genetic information. Especially not the strings required for a gene to function. That part is where the fantasy aka your belief comes in.

            Fossils aren’t evidence of evolution, they are evidence an animal once lived and is now dead. Because someone looks for ‘like traits’ (homology – the best ‘argument’ evolution even has) among these fossils and arranges them they way they see fit is not science, or evidence.
            You can arrange tools in a shed to look like a screwdriver evolved into a hammer.

            The fact you used ‘carbon dating’ as an argument shows your ignorance.

            Your claims are still very generic, especially the ‘you can literally see it’s happening over the past 100 years of records we have’. What records? lol.

            That really made me chuckle. Why am I bothering?

          • Rob H

            Sorry you wasted all your time writing that, i stoppped reading after:

            “Science is what can be tested, observed, and repeated. Evolution is none of these things.”

            Evolution can be tested, observed and repeated. It has been tested. It has been observed over the entire course of history thanks to carbon testing and is still being observed to this day particularly with endemism. Plus, it’s repeating by itself naturally as I type these very letters. Children’s stories about a genie creating the world with magic not so much. Any other hilarious, completely bonkers statements you want to pluck out of thin air? Have a nice delusional day :)

          • care package

            Ah the old ‘I’m more moral than God is’ angle. Evolution is a religion by definition. Sorry man. You’ve traded one pixie for another.

          • Rob H

            I’m sorry, was that comment meant to do anything other than to boost your chances at receiving “the worlds dumbest human being” award? If not, maybe next time try commenting on literally anything relevant to the discussion. Thanks for reinforcing the already overwhelming evidence that delusional and religious really do go hand in hand.

          • care package

            The God-haters are on a roll today lol. Great reply Rob! Resorting to ad-homs right off the bat. Poor guy.

          • NooYawker

            OH yea, you’re definitely not religious. LOL.. who the hell do you think you’re fooling??

      • NooYawker

        If you actually tried to broaden your horizon you wouldn’t be religious.

        • jj

          yeah most people broaden themselves out of religion because they realize the plot holes

        • Jeremiah

          Lol, except I’m not actually religious…man they are coming out of the woodwork today!

          • NooYawker

            Your posts say otherwise. But lying and religion seem to go hand in hand.

          • Rob H

            Your other messages: “Jesus is the Truth so many are looking for”, “give Jesus a go, go right to the source in the Gospel of John. Read what He said and you’ll see He was unique in our history.”

            in your last message: “I’m not actually religious”

            …just more proof religion and delusion go hand in hand.

          • jj

            typical insane person….

          • Moe Curley

            You should be aware, although I’m sure already are, that lying is not the way of *Jesus*. But you do it your way.

          • Jeremiah

            I’m not a Catholic (nothing against them) or lying, being religious is more akin to the pharisees and they crucified Jesus, it’s not generally regarded well among Christians, I’m spiritual.

            Its all about relationship with Father God through Jesus, most religious ceremonies are a waste of time, just there to make people feel better about themselves, self-righteousness if you will.

      • Santiago Draco

        Listening to an hour and a half of propaganda has not interest to me. Now if everyone agreed that Christianity was just “myth” like say an equally plausible greek or roman god story would be…. then I might be interested in watching it assuming it’s entertaining.

        Turning water to wine or raiding someone from the dead isn’t very entertaining for it’s own sake.

        • Jeremiah

          Except Jesus was a real person and has been proven to be historically by the experts. You reveal your ignorance when you say otherwise. Jesus is still doing miracles through His people, again, there are many medical documents that prove it if you’d only do your research.

          It’s a shame you’ve been in indoctrinated to the point where you aren’t even remotely open to the truth anymore, yet you call this propaganda, oh the irony!

          What are you afraid of, that you might find there’s actually something to this Jesus fellow and that might mean having to rethink everything you’ve assumed was correct?!

          Fear is in fact the real reason you won’t watch it, that and your great love for sin, if you’re honest.

      • Buddydudeguy

        I’m all for theology and researching, exploring and pondering the what if, but that’s not what religion is. Religion is man made nonsense, and the mistaken belief that you have stumbled on the answer. Not sure what the answer, so to speak is, but it’s not deities, Gods, Easter Bunnies or Santa Clause.

        Being open minded or not =/= religious

        • Jeremiah

          You’ve made a bunch of assumptions, considering what they’ve taught in schools the last few decades there’s no wonder you’ve come to the wrong conclusions.

          You’re in for a shock if you think the supernatural isn’t real. The answer is Jesus so you know, the Truth and the reason for our existence is found in Him.

          Lastly, Father Christmas is real as well…that is to say, there was a real Saint Nicholas and he was an Christian evangelist that gave gifts to children.

          • Buddydudeguy

    • Trenix

      People nowadays really believe its “cool” to be anti-Christian. It’ pretty much confirms what the bible says would happen. If you’re not into it, don’t bother with it. Yet don’t speak for everyone else. Believe it or not, much of society is influenced by the Christian religion. The ones that aren’t are literal s-holes.

      • ale bro

        what are these s-holes you speak of?

        • Trenix

          Most countries outside of America and Europe. Europe is slowly becoming a s-hole from it’s mass immigration of people who lack similar moral values.

          • ale bro

            i’m guessing you don’t live in the EU…

          • Trenix

            I’m guessing you didn’t read my reply.

            I’m guessing you didn’t want to just answer the guys question because of how humiliating it would have been for you?

          • Trenix

            The EU is the European union. I specifically mentioned Europe and while I don’t live there, I have family who does. If he is going to convince me that these immigration didn’t make majority of the countries in Europe a s-hole, then he clearly doesn’t live in the EU or he’s lying.

          • Rob H

            Funny, because in reality it’s actually the complete opposite of what you’re saying – as someone who actually lives in Europe, I can tell you at least in the UK, the vast majority here aren’t at all religious. The vast majority of immigrants we get, however, are. I suppose you’re just demonstrating why the USA’s education is ranked so poorly in comparison to the UK’s.

          • jj

            wait what? why did you just lash out at usa’s education system…. Trenix was talking shit about both america and us and you just went to saying europe is best… so on that note, you’re now the ignorant ass fuck one because it clearly depends on where you go within these countries for education and not just what country you are in.

          • Rob H

            It’s not “talking shit”, it’s a world ranking system, not something I’ve just made up. I’m not saying the whole of the education system in the US is awful, if you have money then it’s great. As a whole however, it’s pretty bad compared to other countries. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I know the US likes to believe they’re the best at everything.

          • Jj

            And I’m saying that’s off topic as fuck… He literally called out usa and eroupe for being shit and your defense was well USA has a bad school system…

            We’re you trying to say that he’s from America and him not knowing things is representative of Americas school system? Because he never said he was from America, and by the way he talks about it he probably isn’t. So you’re just attacking Americans for who the fuck knows….

            Also fuck nut if American schools suck so bad why do people come here for education? Why do they leave India and leave South America for hope of a future? It sound to me like you’re just a little butt hurt over something you’re not mentioning and instead trying to insult America. Jealous much?

          • Trenix

            Can you guys read? I literally said that most countries OUTSIDE of US and Europe, are shitholes. Oh man…

          • brubble

            I dont know where youre getting your information from but last I checked the US is almost at the top in the rankings.

          • Trenix

            LMFAO, yes people risk death to migrate here because it’s a shithole. You’re a genius.

          • brubble

            That’s calling the kettle black

          • Trenix

            The UK, where you’re censored and legally held accountable for “hate speech” when you speak about pretty much anything. You guys don’t even know what freedom is and it’s hilarious that you are paying for this mass immigration. What happened with brexit? You guys voted and your politicians have no regard to your votes. You people are pathetic and despite the US having lower education, we’re still far stronger and smarter.

            But keep boasting, your government doesn’t even trust you with guns. Your people are killing each other with knives and now your government wants to take away your knives. Your people are the biggest cucks on the planet, outside of Sweden, where your women are being raped by these immigrants too and you guys do nothing about it. Pathetic.

            Also your people are religious, they have a very religious background. Majority of your people are Christian. You live in a place where you don’t even know your own religious demographics. England’s flag is a damn cross for crying out loud. I know more about your country than you know about it, you should be embarrassed. Guess they don’t teach history in the UK, it’s probably hate speech.

          • brubble

            Best stay out of Canada. Ignoramuses and fantasy don’t really fly as well up here as they do south of the Jesus line.

      • Believe it or not, much of society is influenced by the Christian religion. The ones that aren’t are literal s-holes.

        Aaaand you pretty much summed up why people don’t like to waste their time with the sort of Christianity that you represent.

        @disqus_uYPnni2p2s:disqus is definitely right in assuming that the tech-savvy part of the population doesn’t have much overlap with the superstitious part, a fact which was portrayed in HBO’s Silicon Valley quite elegantly ;)

        • Trenix

          Truth hurts, the Jews killed Jesus because of it. Also you claim this is all superstitious, but you’re the same group of people who believe there are multiple genders. Also what about global warming which is now called climate change, term changed because the global temperature has dropped recently. What about the idea that people feel they can predict the future of our planet, despite not knowing the weather within a one hour period?

          You think you guys are different than people who are religious, but you’re worse.

          • ale bro

            wow – you think there’s only one gender?!

          • Trenix

            Multiple usually means more than two. It’s not common to say multiple when you’re just mentioning two things. But do whatever makes you feel better being an atheist.

          • jj

            btw people use multiple to refer to two A LOT. so if youre willing to say they don’t then that right there discredits everything you say because youre 100% choosing to believe in something false to push your agenda.

          • Trenix

            “How many people will be at the party?”
            “Multiple people”
            “So you mean like two?”

            lol, bet people know you for your proper English and use of words.

          • Rosko

            The global temperature modulates over time but there is a clear trend of rising global temperature since the 50s. Tons of evidence out there that shows this as fact.

          • Trenix

            In the past there was evidence of global warming and global cooling. This isn’t anything new and we don’t know for sure what exactly is contributing to it, because there are WAY too many factors to account for. For example, the sun contributes to climate change far more than CO2 levels.

            Please do provide the evidence you speak of where the global temperature has increased anything close to the same rate it’s increased over the past 50 years?

          • Gamer1st1

            And the fix that isn’t worse than the problem?
            That’s where a massive amount of the dispute lies.
            Huge numbers of people that dispute GW are arguing with the proposed “solutions” to it or its cause. Not just whether it’s a thing. Arguing it doesn’t exist is no worse than the argument it does, but not offering actual solutions that make sense.

          • Rosko

            Explain to me this skeptics, why are the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere so high today?

          • Rob H

            Truth hurts, Jesus is a fictional character.

    • Peyton Lind

      I’m not religious yet I’d watch this if I was using that service, given it doesn’t seem like it is pushing an agenda but rather it’s telling a story as given in the bible.

      I’d rather watch this than some film designed around say the moronic climate change cult and the insanity (climate does change as it has for billions of years. Not humans causing changes now nor can humans stop it short of completely destroying all life on the planet by blocking the sun) they believe in or any other mentally deranged thing those part of the leftist cult believe in and keep pushing in hollyweird. Can hardly watch a single thing from hollyweird these days that doesn’t push some leftist propaganda. It’s F’ing annoying.

      If faced with films retelling religious stories in the bible or films pushing lefty propaganda from their psychotic view of reality, give me the religious stories every single time.

      • Rosko

        ‘moronic climate change cult’ you mean educated professional scientists?

        • Jeremiah

          Sure, “educated” the word you’re looking for is indoctrinated. BTW, most of them don’t believe it, but if they dare to go against the status quo, then they will be quickly out of a job.

          Welcome to how it is throughout the establishment, not just regarding man made climate change, but including all lies and evil agendas. Its 1984, but it some ways even worse.

          • Rob H

            In your other comments: “Jesus is the Truth so many are looking for”

            …and here you are calling scientists basing theories on actual, real evidence “indoctrinated”? Please do tell us your education background regarding the earth’s climate, the studies you’ve done and the evidence you’ve gathered to claim all the world’s leading scientists on the subject are all completely wrong? Or is it as I thought, you know literally nothing about the subject after all and chose to just believe what you want – like how you chose to believe a character from a fictional book is real?

          • Rosko

            lol

      • NooYawker

        Yea you’re not religious, you just reject science and adhere to conservative beliefs.

        Do you guys think your arguments are more believable when you start a sentence with “im not religious”? You and Jeremiah both claim you’re not religious but obviously are.

        • Warscent

          I’m also not religious,just versed in world culture, history , science yet fully support his view.
          Sounds to me like your simply triggered over reality.
          It’s advisable to research things one considers threatening .
          Google , social media, and Hollywood movies don’t count.

          • NooYawker

            Yea whenever someone starts their sentence by “I’m not religious” it’s a safe bet it’ll be a moronic statement that follows. Something like “triggered by reality” when talking about religion.

          • Warscent

            How is human behavior that sculpted the known human world moronic? Whether you believe in the spiritual aspects of religion or not makes no difference. You merely resent certain people so much , you let your own personal bias get in the way of rational thought.
            I suggest putting down the VR and getting a dose of actual reality every now and then.

          • NooYawker

            Still believing in a magical being after all we’ve learned in science is flat out moronic.
            And you have plenty of bias. When I asked above about Islamic videos you immediately brought up ISIS.
            I guess your imaginary god is greater than other people’s right?
            I resent religious people because they force their religion down our throats. Just look at women’s rights around the country, look at Alabama, Mississippi and other deeply religious red states. Last in education, last in women’s rights, first in welfare.

          • Warscent

            I didn’t say I believed in any magical being.
            No need for accusations.
            You are making assumptions due to being emotionally compromised and thus hit every progressive Liberal SJW check box accordingly no?
            You even defend Islam yet champion women’s rights in the same rant. How amusing.
            And as a usual response of those sharing such programmed viewpoints, you will retreat to a safe space and block anyone attempting to run two brain cells together in civil dialog.
            Congratulations.

    • VR5

      Being an active religion, this kind of fantasy is more problematic, sure, but in the end this isn’t any different from a movie about Odysseus, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or even Endgame (which features Thor).I think there are a lot of fans of fantasy among VR users, both modern and classical mythology.

      I wish it’d be more like Darren Aronofsky’s Noah or Ridley Scott’s Exodus though. The former at least gives its characters some psychological depth and the latter is actually an attempt to remove the fantastic and tell its story as a historic movie.

    • NooYawker

      This fictional story is as good as any other.

      • jj

        yeah if you take it as just a story then im sure its decent. but as a religious cornerstone… theyre kidding themselves

    • disqus_nUte0XSviO

      I know it’s anecdotal but almost everyone I know that has VR- two of my brothers, 4 close friends and myself – are strong Christians and are looking forward to watching this

    • Ethan

      What data would you have to suggest that VR users are any less religious?

      • ale bro

        less religious than what?

  • Jeremiah

    Nice, well done for covering this content as well. Hopefully it does the Gospel of John justice.

    I recommend everyone watch the first free episode of what will hopefully be a multi-season show about the lives of the disciples of Jesus. Its not nearly as boring as it sounds, as it’s filmed in a far more relatable way by a talented Hollywood director. If it continues with the same quality, then I’m excited about its future.

    Its on Vidangel and is the biggest crowd funded series of all time. Don’t worry, its not preachy at all. You will likely laugh and I recommend you have some tissues ready at the end!
    https://studios.vidangel.com/the-chosen

    I also recommend the pilot first, its lower budget for obvious reasons, but gives a good idea of what the rest of the show is about and its on YouTube, which is convenient. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lVt14Ug-GOs&t=922s

    • jj

      Yeah we dont need more advertising in the comments of something advertising. thanks but we hate it

    • NooYawker

      Can you suggest some Islamic videos?

      • Warscent

        Sure ISIS makes plenty of them for YouTube .

        • NooYawker

          Why not, they all want Sharia law, just look at Alabama.

          • Moe Curley

            Alabama…Sharia Law… Have you ever been to Alabama? If you said that there you had better run.

    I watched it on Rift through Viveport. It wasnt VR (3D), just a 360 video with crap quality to be honest. In my opinion 360 non 3D videos should be erased from world, they are completely crap and impossible to watch

  • Hivemind9000

    Read the book. It was a gripping drama with heroes, villains and magic! A nice edition to my fantasy fiction collection.

    • Gamer1st1

      And you can certainly enjoy it that way.

    • Trenix

      Except it was based on actual people which have been validated by historians. You can say the miracle aspects aren’t real, but saying the book is a fantasy fiction makes you appear as an idiot.

      • dk

        xD based on actual people …..so the same as the Quran and all other books about people with religious following …got it

        • Warscent

          The Quran is very discriptive about the historically documented warlord Mohamed, his war campaigns , laws of sharia, and followers. Sprinkled with fantasy dust.
          The Bible is far older and many of the fantasy stories and characters have absolutely not been documented any other place other than the Bible itself.
          That’s just facts, but faith steps in where historical gaps exist, thus religion.

          • Trenix

            Yeah the Romans weren’t real, nor was their historians, culture, or any of it. Muslims for you…

          • Warscent

            I didn’t say the Roman history is exempt or lacking in any respect.
            What point are you attempting to make?

          • Trenix

            Because Roman historians have said Jesus was real. I’m assuming you’re talking about the old testament rather than the new.

          • Warscent

            A little of both.

        • Trenix

          Yeah Muhammad was a real person, he conquered most of Europe and it was exactly why there were crusades. Or is that all fictional too? Not surprised, bet you left leaning wackos believe all of history is a myth. Clearly they don’t teach you it in school anymore.

          • Moe Curley

            You should be aware that in zest for a fight I believe that you have engaged in a rhetorical battle with a fellow christian.

          • dk

            so r u trolling or what
            XD not all history is a myth just the mythical parts …….like Muhammad talking to angels and riding a flying horse and splitting the moon
            …..the point was there r a lot of books about real people and supernatural claims about them
            “most of Europe” ….nope completely wrong …most of other places https://slideplayer.com/slide/7079542/ let me educate u because your school has failed u lol :P …..but than again u r beyond education if u think the roman empire didn’t exist….or maybe u were trying to make a joke

          • Trenix

            Before you bring up school and education, maybe you should revisit or stay in it, being that your grammar is horrible. You write as bad as ebonics. I never stated that the books are real, but the people are. You have people here who literally believe Jesus and Muhammad are fictional characters, despite being actual people found and written about in historical books. You guys don’t know how to read and I’m beginning to think that I’m speaking with children, not adults.

          • dk

            so u got that Mohammad never concurred most of Europe ….got it

            there r tons historical sources for Mohammad ….for Jesus there r only folk tales from 30 years after his death and nothing is clear about his life …and a lot of stories were discarded at the council of Nicaea because they were inconvenient for the narrative they wanted ….nothing about him is historically documented like Mohammed’s life because Jesus was a cult leader with tiny following and Muhammad was a war lord with an army

            and the point was Jesus being historical is absolutely irrelevant ….just how the supernatural claims involving Sai Baba r irrelevant to him existing

          • Trenix

            Roman historians have wrote about Jesus, especially the best historians of that time. I’ve actually brought it up multiple times, you however choose to not look into it. Be ignorant, I don’t care. Jesus was a real person, sorry that propaganda has got the better of your puny little mind. Say what you want about the bible and the “miracles”, but Jesus was an actual real person and if you don’t believe it, you are the idiot.

            I bet you believe Jesus and Horus were the same too, because you watched some stupid documentary on the netflix without actually doing the research on your own. But I can’t blame you, I used to be just like you. Stubborn and ignorant.

          • dk

            no contemporary historian has written about Jesus …Josephus is the earliest which is something like 20-30 years after his death and it was basically one sentence just mentioning him ….every story about Jesus is folktales recorded 20-30 years after his death ….and then at the council of Nicaea they decided which stories to name official and which to discard

            no one cares about the historicity of Jesus ….just like no one cares about the historicity of Mohammed or Jim Jones …..the important part is there is no reason accept any miracle claim because it can’t be demonstrated in any way ……and someone being a historic person doesn’t in any way prove the miracles claimed about him like Sai Baba for example

          • Trenix

            Christianity, Islam, Judaism, are extremely popular religions and majority of our entire culture, is directly and still is, influenced by these religions. They all connect, but have different beliefs set of beliefs. If you don’t see the significance of this, then you’re nothing more than a hateful fool. If non-religious historians aren’t relevant in documenting a person like Jesus, then you mind as well throw out all of history as we know it, kind of like how the left does already.

            Miracles are something I can’t prove. You know why? Because the literal definition of a miracle cannot be explained through science or nature causes. You cannot prove a miracle, but it can be documented. It is up to you to believe it or not. Personally, I don’t care what you belief or care, but if you’re going to spew trash like Jesus wasn’t even a real person, I will call you out on it. It’s like claiming that the holocaust never happened, it’s childish.

          • dk

            religions influencing the culture ….well no shit …who said they didn’t

            it’s not non religious historians ….it’s a fact that all we have about Jesus is folktales recorded 20-30 years after his death and no historian at the time he was alive wrote about him

            I don’t care about excuses why a miracle can’t be demonstrated ….just like any other claim if it can’t be demonstrated/verified beyond stories about Mohammad flying on a horse there is no reason to accept the claim

          • Trenix

            There are so many sources and so much evidence where no logical historian would question if Jesus was real. A book also wasn’t easy to make, it was expensive and copying had to be done by hand. Christians were also prosecuted and killed, so expect any writings to be burned. So yes, it would take years later for any real gospels or historical writings to come into existence. Flavius Josephus mentioned Jesus, Thallus mentioned Jesus, The Letter of Mara Bar-Serapion mentioned Jesus, Tacitus mentioned Jesus.

            Even the Jews mentioned Jesus in the Talmud. None of these non-christian sources, questioned Jesus being real, but if he actually did any miracles. You can say miracles never occur, but Jesus was real. Also the gospels are not only some folktales, “some people” wrote them as a testimony of what Jesus did, not that he existed. No historical document at the time or afterwards have ever questioned Jesus’ existence. The gospels also contradict each other which proves they’ve been written by different authors.

            But whatever makes you happy. Believe what you want. I’m not here to change your mind, I don’t care. Germans killed many and burned books, imagine if they conquered the whole world, you’d have people like you who’d assume that the ideologies they burned, never existed, even if fragments were found. You follow the flock and lack research, rational thinking, common sense, and general knowledge.

          • dk

            who here is questioning if Jesus is real

            again….it’s a fact that all we have about Jesus is random not too consistent folktales recorded 20-30 years after his death and no historian at the time he was alive wrote about him and they decided which stories to be official at the council of Nicaea ….I mentioned Josephus it’s 20-30 years after his death

            Mohammad being historical dude has absolutely nothing to do with the claimed miracles about him riding a flying horse that can’t be demonstrated in any way

          • Trenix

            You don’t even know what I’m arguing about. The whole argument is that Jesus was real, not that his miracles were real.

      • Rob H

        “based on actual people which have been validated by historians.”

        What exactly did these “historians” validate? Do link the evidence

        • Trenix

          That Jesus was a real person. Link the evidence? I’m not doing your research, you have google and the internet to do that. If you don’t know or care to know, I personally don’t care. Now if you want to find out yourself, go read into Tacitus, who speaks of Jesus and was know as Romans greatest historians. Please try to debunk that Jesus wasn’t real. There are there historians who mentioned him as well, but you can find them on your own. I simply mentioned the most known and reputable historian.

          • Hivemind9000

            Jesus probably was real. Almost definitely. He was most likely crucified by to Romans as documented. All the rest – son of God etc – well that’s an article of Faith, not fact.

          • Trenix

            You can believe what you want to believe. The fact of the matter is that Jesus was a real person and other people are arguing that he wasn’t. You see the left went so full retard that they believe even the people inside the book are fictional. That’s what happens when people are full of hate.

      • Hivemind9000

        Just like Hollywood – “based on true events” means 90% fiction, 10% fact.

        • Moe Curley

          Heeeey… we’re a real church. We got the tax exemption to prove it!

        • Trenix

          Nothing Hollywood says is true, not even if they claim it. Hollywood is entertainment, just like the news claims it’s entertainment. Their careers have no obligation of telling the truth and they wont be punished for lying. Historians on the other hand, are there to simply state facts and truth. Sure they can be deceptive, but they weren’t intended as a form of entertainment. Also if you want to claim all historical documents as deceiving, then history is fake.

          What I don’t understand, is that I’m sure you believe in the big bang and evolution, and a bunch of other theories that have no hard evidence to back up such claims. For those theories to exist, it requires some sort of miracle. A miracle is pretty much something which couldn’t of happened through nature or scientific laws.

          • Hivemind9000

            So… you believe in magic – good for you. I wish I could, seriously, but pesky facts and logic seem to keep getting in my way. Sucks to be me I guess.

          • Trenix

            You do too, at least I can admit that my ideas may not be fully right, but you think you are. Science is incapable of explaining everything, fact.

      • Moe Curley

        True, historians have proven that Joseph Smith also existed. Lucky he just happened to by blind luck stumble it the very cave where Jesus left his second writings when he decided to preach to the Native Americans after the crucifixion or we wouldn’t have the Mormons either. It’s just so logical, how can you not have faith in it?

      • Buddydudeguy

        Based on actual people from hundreds/thousands of years ago who were simple in the head, believed in deities, witches, devils and all manner of hocus pocus, who had their so called stories twisted repeatedly as it was handed down person to person and translation to translation. Ya. Totally.

        • Trenix

          You’re mixing up historians and apostles. Another atheist who tries to act smart, but actually proves they’re a complete retard. Again, I don’t blame you guys. As a stupid brainwashed teenager listening to democratic propaganda, I too thought religious people were stupid and I went out of my way to challenge them. It was easy to destroy them because vast majority of Christians are Catholics, which is a false religion and doesn’t follow it’s bible’s teachings. Once I read the bible, looked up historical documents, and tried my best to disprove it, I rethought of what I was going up against.

          • Buddydudeguy

        Every powerful culture in human history has used religion to further its advancement . Even my Native American ancestors . If you’ve an issue with that it’s with Puritan and Catholic expansionism, not Christianity itself.

        • Moe Curley

          I think the Crusades are a good counterpoint to that.

          • Warscent

            The crusades are NOT a counterpoint, but exactly the point Im making. The Holy Roman Empire has always been a wealth, power, and control based system that hijacked Christianity for its own purpose. Nonetheless, many of the crusades were a justifiable reactive form of warfare against the Islamic Caliphate in Europe.

          • Moe Curley
