mhd: How do you make a non-biblical version in the first place?


Do it about the Mediterranean overflowing through the Bosphorus, destroying the small village where Noah lives. Frame it in context of the stories he tells his children to calm them and lessen the impact of the tragedy for them. The neighbor's kids are assholes, so the flooding is punishment for their wickedness. They need to cross a stream that has grown to a raging river, and they can only fit some of their herd on the boat so they fit two of every animal they are leading along; two sheep, two goats. They find a beautiful unsettled valley, and take root there as the reward for their trials and tribulations, building their homestead out of the wilderness.

So while there may be some hope to change the third act, to make it easier or nicer

C'mon, God murders virtually the planet's entire population; it's the ultimate feel-good story!

Confabulat: machoprogrammer: When I was 8 I realized it was all bs. There's adults out there dumber than 8 year old me. And I was a really stupid kid...

I will never forget my first day at Sunday School. (Oh how I didn't want to go!)

But my first day, I remember sitting there all morning quietly giggling at the silly man's fairy tales, and how seriously he took them. I was nearly bursting out laughing and I could NOT wait until lunchtime so I could meet up with some of my friends from elementary school and laugh and laugh at this guy.

Then I got to lunch and sat down still giddy and ready for some serious pre-teen mockery, and then I noticed what my friends were saying. They BELIEVED what the crazy dude had been telling them for hours, about magic God and Jesus and fairies or whatever.

It shook me to my very core. I learned that day how to be quiet.


And that little boy grew up to be Ted Bundy, and now you know the rest of the story.

Tyrone Slothrop: Confabulat: What's interesting about the story of Noah is how child-like and simplistic it is. There is no way that story could possibly occur given the physical and natural laws that we have ever encountered. Yet to this day, people believe it is real.

That says a lot about our species, I think.

It fails on a moral level too. Your god destroys all of humanity except for a couple of families, and you still think he's a loving god worth worshipping?


You have to take the book as a total.  A young god starts creating stuff and gets into all types of trouble.  Having to reboot and rework his plans as he continues to screw up.  One day he finds out in a drunk'n debouched night he sired a son.... and after that everything changed.  It is a story on how having kids really mellows you out, no matter how much you want to kill them.

As soon as the conservative media gets wind of this, we'll be hearing how it's some big-budget Hollywood assault on Christian values, with Noah having gay butt-sex with animals, etc.

Which, given that it's Aronofsky, it actually may well be.

One version of a made-up story is as good as another, so I don't get the problem. Disney did it with Cinderella and Snow White because the Brothers Grimm versions were too dark, so why shouldn't Paramount?
