Friends, last night I watched the Hollywood (Paramount) movie Noah. It is much, much worse than I thought it would be—much worse. The director of the movie, Darren Aronofsky, has been quoted in the media as saying that Noah is “the least biblical biblical film ever made,” and I agree wholeheartedly with him.
I am disgusted. I am going to come right out and say it: this movie is disgusting and evil—paganism! Do you really want your family to see a pagan movie that portrays Noah as a psychopath who says that if his daughter-in-law’s baby is a girl then he will kill her as soon as she’s born? And when two girls are born, bloodstained Noah (the man the Bible calls “righteous” in Genesis 7:1) brings a knife down to the head of one of the babies to kill her—and at the last minute doesn’t do it. And then a bit later, Noah says he failed because he didn’t kill the babies. How can we recommend this movie and then speak against abortion? Psychopathic Noah sees humans as a blight on the planet and wants to rid the world of people.
I feel dirty—as if I have to somehow wash the evil off myself. I cannot believe there are Christian leaders who have recommended that people see this movie.
It’s as if someone heard the name Noah, and that there was a Flood and an Ark, and then made up a pagan movie about it. I don’t think there is anything else that really has to do with the Bible’s account except some names of people! For example, Methuselah is some sort of witch doctor who can do magical things. There is much more I could say about it—so much more. And what’s with the bizarre fallen angels being living rocks that help Noah?
I suggest you join us at CreationDebate.org tonight for our live stream at 8 PM eastern time. A number of AiG researches watched the movie last night as well, and several of us will be on the live stream to explain what we saw and heard.
I am so glad my wife did not come with me to see this—she would have been terribly upset. I feel violated as a Christian. Regardless of what others say, I just had to come right out and say this. Oh, and it is also a boring movie—yes, boring! Worst movie I think I’ve ever seen.
That’s my personal take—join us tonight for our discussion of Noah at CreationDebate.org.
The movie begins with (and also states later on), “In the beginning there was nothing.” However, the Bible states, “In the beginning God” (Genesis 1:1). That really sums up the difference!
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
