The Secret

Due to the numerous comments expressing their strong disapproval of this film, it has been removed from OD4U.

I acknowledge that I exercised poor judgement on my decision to post this film and sincerely apologise to my loyal regulars.

Thank you all for your honest feedback!

FOR THOSE THAT STILL WANT TO WATCH THIS FILM, FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW...

please don't post stuff like this. There is absolutely no evidence that "wanting something to happen" will make it happen. This type of stuff gives people false hope and just serves to make the author rich.

yeah, seriously. this so-called "documentary" is krap!

Scott said...

As I just stated in the chat box...

"There are, however, many people that enjoy these kinds of films. As you know, I try to cater to a wide range of tastes on this site...hence my respose to the request."

The point is this - if you don't like one of the vids posted here...don't watch it!

There may be others that enjoy it.

Totally respect your right to post whatever you want, and generally really love the content here, but "The Secret" is not a documentary, not a mockumentary, but just total BS.

As you say, if I don't like it, don't watch/read, and I agree, and the volume of really good content here on this site is hard to turn down. But I'm sorry, this one comes off as a lapse of judgment - "Online Documentaries 4 U" suggests documentaries, and a connotation of science and fact. "The Secret" is a lame joke, but worse actually hurts people looking for answers to real world problems as they put faith in the "law of attraction" - which is, well, completely made up, and possibly one of the best money making scams ever (without the Madoff type legal issues). People who actually believe in this silliness can and do get hurt. That is the real shame in promoting "The Secret" in any way.

All in all though, generally great content, but if I see "What The Bleep Do We Know" or any foolery from Ben Stein I'll have to stop recommending this a good resource.

I only watched the first few minutes of it. It's not a documentary. It's looks like a infomercial. What it is selling, I don't know.

This really is Pure BS.
In fact this was used in my university course to highlight this hypocrisy of modern culture. I think Scott has made a wise choice to show disapproval of this, by making us follow a link. I normal would argue for a fair voice and how everything deserve a chance, but this is so shitty, the very site of it makes me sick.

Agreed! This is an infomercial Scott. Not really a documentary.

first , it is true that if you don't like, don't watch!
second, stop thinking that only "science based" facts are true and other things are not ! it is that kind of behavior that is ruining actually the world . but in that matter, you can also investigate an excellent french scientist (garnier-mallet) and you will see that he has demonstrated scientifically (quantic sciences) why/how your thoughts are influencing the future . he demonstrated that we are not living in a fuild and continuous time frame but in 3 various time frames (past - present - future). his theory called "splitting of time theory" is more than serious and explain a lot of so called "paranormal" facts!
so please guys, open your mind, accept what is not proved yet before rejecting as calling BS! thanks scott for having the guts to post also non rational/scientific "documentaries"!!!

If people want to see the Secret, I'm sure there are many 'new age' sites out there they can visit. As others have said, it is BS and doesn't belong on the same page with serious work. Pushpin is not as good as poetry.

PS my 'prove you are human' word is
SLITI, funny

I think this is wonderful.

How can you not be swayed by the arguments of the dude who is a visionary for a living. Now I know what my dream job is.

Besides this shit actually works. Just a moment ago I sat around thinking about myself holding a gold brick in my hand, and what do you know, the next moment I have not only one, but 2 gold bricks in my hand. It hurt my nuts since I was holding my hand out over my crotch, but hey, I'm rich now.

LMAO at above post! This "secret" tripe belongs on the religious network garbage page! LOL!

mdJolley said...

Wow... Y'all seem to hate new-age philosophy more than you bash on Christians!

I wasn't interested in watching it until I read all the colorful hate-posts about it... Major let down, seemed fairly harmless to me. I was hoping for crudeness, blood and gore after all your hype!

Take a chill pill everybody. Different strokes for different folks.

Actually there is alot of proff that this type of stuff works, its called Quantum physics, maybe you should look it up, before you get this movie thrown off a web site, because your lives have not worked out for you up to this point, doesn't mean it never will. This mess our society is in is due to the fact that people don't live a life more like the secret, all the religons are pointing to the same thing, they just dont add at the end if you don't follow my way I will kill you and everyone like you because, you don't say my god is the only one. Love is the only truth, we are all stuck here together so we better realize what true power we have, and forget the car and materialist crap, have grand dreams for more then just your self and it will happen because its not false.

How can any one disapprove this film. You got to be kidding, after all. I love to creator of this site but guess what, I am a loyal watcher of your site and will one day donate but I would stop visiting if you dont have documents like these. Thanks for keeping the link and you cant please everybody.

So, the more stuff on your site, the better...
I suggest weak minds need to stay off!!!

so from what i understand, you can't be fair and balanced? you have crap on here all the time about carl sagen and all his crap that can't be proven, darwin and other things that are just a THEORY. you cater to just atheist and that's it? even though they are just 8-10% of the world population. the idea that the power of positive thinking is is something you feel you have to appoligize to these soul-less people for? shame on you. they don't believe that for every action, there is a reaction? that's all this video was saying. on the other hand thanks for the link, i went to it and watched it and found it very interesting. any other good stuff that your atheist wimps don't like, please post the links for the rest of us intelligent people can go to visit. sorry about my spelling but i'm upset and pissed. if you post only what a few want to see then you will have only a few come here to your site to visit, you post what a greater number of people want to see, you will have a greater number of visitors.

ben your so narrow minded and prehistoric , science is always changing, what we think we know turns out to be wrong and its the narrow minded materilistic people like yourself who hold back the progression of humanitiy and the grater understanding of alternative sciences

Anonymous said...

To the guys who said science is way changing, i would just like remind people that science has work very hard to change out of ideas such as "the secret".
Before the adoption of the scientific method, something is true when someone with authority says it is. after the scientific method, we have to prove that it is true. a simple way to prove the secret is have two group of people flipping coins, one group wanting heads, and one group wanting tails, and then we have a machine who just flips coins randomly. If the human thought can truly draw something towards it, then there would be a clear difference between the 3. I will believe the secret as soon as they release something of sort. I have a feeling it will never come.

bahahaha reading some of those comments... winge winge f#$%ing winge... guess what i asked for today! i asked for a good laugh, and i got it! coz i wanted it! 'i wont visit this site if you post documentaries like The Secret!' boo hoo, guess what, someone enjoyed the film and took something positive from it, and guess what, no one else matters! so, u winging members of the human race... can go suck my balls :) and 'scott' who eva is in change of this site... dont stop posting documentaries like The Secret... the film brought hope and will continue to bring hope to people. whether or not thinking positivly about something will bring that particular thing to you, i dont no. but i do no that i would much rather think positivly then negativly, because i am a happier person that way.

All these efforts to censor a movie?

I smell American propaganda... stifling their own constitutional rights all the while loosing sight of their luxury of having the freedom, time, and resources to suffocate themselves.

scott your a shrew for folding to the pressure of your peers, irregardless of the documentary and its content. i come to the internet because i want to watch things that i cannot get on regular television and to quench my curiosity of all things. I am big enough to be able to watch and decide for myself what is rubbish and what is concrete. Just because you have a few imbeciles who don't like the film and cry about it you take it off? You have a forum here for people seeking knowledge and just because the content is fringe and suggestive doesn't mean it is a cult like some of your "regulars" would have you believe. It is also about as harmful as the god who wasn't there, which you are advertising. I don't particularly care for the secret that isn't the point here scott. You have a wonderful site that i visit often and i don't expect this to be posted nor do i care if it is. This is an overreaction to an overreaction, im just curious to see if your new favorite hobby of censorship holds the same fate for this post as it did for the secret
