I know I don’t usually post on Tuesdays, but this is something important that couldn’t wait until I have an open date to post about.
You might have seen my post back in November where I announced the upcoming release of the movie Noah starring Russell Crowe. There wasn’t much information out on the movie, besides the trailer, and it looked really good.
But recently, information has come to light that is rather disturbing and has removed all my desire to go watch this new release. I wanted to share it with you all, to make sure you are aware of all the facts before you decide if you’re going to go watch it or not.
I first read Ken Ham’s post, Don’t Be Taken in by the Noah Movie’s Promotions, a few months ago. The points he brought up were pretty dissapointing, as I was hoping for a really good biblical account of Noah (my fault for even thinking Hollywood would go for “accurate”, I know). I encourage you to go read his article for yourself, but I’m just going to share one section here with you all.
Here are a few more problem areas seen in the rough cut of the film, most of which I expect to be in the final film:
1. In the film, Noah was robbed of his birthright by Tubal-Cain. The serpent’s body (i.e., Satan), which was shed in Eden, was their “birthright reminder.” It also doubled with magical power that they would wrap around their arm. So weird!
2. Noah’s family only consists of his wife, three sons, and one daughter-in-law, contrary to the Bible.
3. It appears as if every species was crammed in the Ark instead of just the kinds of animals, thus mocking the Ark account the same way secularists do today.
4. “Rocks” (that seem to be fallen angels) build the Ark with Noah!
5. Methuselah (Noah’s grandfather) is a type of witch-doctor, whose mental health is questionable.
6. Tubal-Cain defeats the Rocks who were protecting the finished Ark.
7. A wounded Tubal-Cain axes his way inside the Ark in only about ten minutes and then hides inside. Tubal-Cain then convinces the middle son to lure Noah to the bottom of the Ark in order to murder him (because he was not allowed a wife in the Ark). Tubal-Cain stays alive by eating hibernating lizards. The middle son of Noah has a change of heart and helps kill Tubal-Cain instead.
8. Noah becomes almost crazy as he believes the only purpose to his family’s existence was to help build the Ark for the “innocent” animals (this is a worship of creation).
9. Noah repeatedly tells his family that they were the last generation and were never to procreate. So when his daughter-in-law becomes pregnant, he vows to murder his own grandchild. But he finally has a change of heart.
10. Noah does not have a relationship with God but rather with circumstances and has deadly visions of the Flood.
11. The Ark lands on a cliff next to a beach.
12. After the Flood Noah becomes so distant from his family that he lives in a cave, getting drunk by the beach.
Facts To Consider:
1. Darren Aronofsky, the director of the film, is a “card
carrying atheist” and open about it.
2. At the opening of the Noah Movie in Mexico, Darren
Aronofsky said: ”It’s a very, very different movie. Anything you’re
expecting, you’re f—ing wrong.”
3. Aronofsky also said: “I’m Godless. And so I’ve had
to make my God, and my God is narrative filmmaking, which is — ultimately what
my God becomes.”
4. Aronofsky is not interested in the Biblical record,
fossil record, or hundreds of cultural records that testify to the Flood being
a true event. He summed up his view of the Biblical account like this: “I don’t
think it’s a very religious story, I think it’s a great fable that’s part of so
many different religions and spiritual practices. I just think it’s a great
story that’s never been on film.”
5. Paramount Pictures is the funder for this movie. They
also produced the Wolf of Wall Street which used the F word more than 500 times
at an average of one every 21 seconds and blasphemed the name of God almost two
6. Reason #1 in the article, “5 Reasons Why Atheists Should
Look Forward To Noah” is “Darren Aronofsky is God.” The article concludes, “So
get out there, enjoy the film and lap it up like the deity that you’ve always
wanted to be!”
7. Critics are not so thrilled about the project saying,
“Some have been bowled over by his epic take on the story of the ark, while
most others find his movie messy and ill-conceived, with the result not quite
While these seven reasons don’t begin to cover the
totally un-Biblical approach
taken on this Historical Account, they are enough for me to say, “No, Thank
You!” Hollywood only hears $$$$$$$, so if you don’t give it to them, they WILL
