DamnYankees: I am very interested in this movie. Want to see how they do the animals on the ark.

5 posts in and we already have a bestiality comment in a religious thread.  Way to go Fark!

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!

Well they're going to have to change something; because, as it is, the whole story is a ridiculous steaming heap of horse shiat.

Battlefield Earth practically looks like a National Geographic documentary compared to the Noah story.

grumpfuff: sprawl15: grumpfuff: He was probably referring to the amount of animals you'd have to fit on the ark. Even not counting the insects, that stretches the imagination a bit too far.

the fishtanks noah would have needed to build

And cages.

"Dammit, lion, I told you NOT to eat the zebra! And now the snakes are eating the mice!"

Confabulat: The Noah story is like one of those ancient Greek God stories about how Zeus turns into a butterfly and rapes some local girl.

Sure, why not? Sounds plausible to me!

that is actually the origin of the butterfly tattoo over the cooter

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.

That was Lot. Noah was the "Hah, I see your peener" guy.
