I’ve always wanted to see a well done movie about Noah’s flood, which included the Watchers, Nephilim, and the real reasons behind the flood, but this movie won’t be it. The movie is scheduled to be released in 2014, so everything we are hearing about the movie is just a rumor at this point, but those rumors are confirming the suspicions I’ve had ever since I first heard that this movie was being made.
A Mockery Of The Bible
Not only is Darren Aronofsky attempting to cash in on the Biblical story of Noah’s flood, but he hasn’t even bothered to pick up a Bible or any other text concerning Noah for that matter.
“So, when Paramount announced that his version of Noah would be a “close adaptation of the biblical story of Noah’s ark,” we weren’t buying it. Now, some clues have surfaced making this more clear than ever: Noah will not be the biblical story you learned about in Sunday school.” – ScreenCrave
As we continue looking into this blasphemous excuse for a movie, you’ll see why the above statements couldn’t be further from the truth. This movie WILL NOT be a close adaptation of the Biblical story by any stretch of the imagination. However, it will be a BLATANTLY FALSE adaptation of a story that over 1,000,000,000 people hold sacred.
Aronofsky Gets The Watchers Wrong
For those of us that are aware of the Watcher’s role in why the flood happened in the first place, it is nothing less than a slap in the face of Christians when Aronofsky decided to make them the offspring of human women and angels.
“The story will also include the Watchers, which are described as “eleven-foot-tall fallen angels with six arms and no wings.” Slashfilm mentions that these fallen angels are actually mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 6) as the giant offspring of the “sons of God and the “daughters of men.” – ScreenCrave
If Aronofsky had bothered to read the Bible, he’d know that the Watchers are not mentioned as having six arms or wings. That is something that he fabricated all on his own. Slashfilm also IGNORANTLY co-signs this nonsense, and then gets the facts wrong. The Watchers are not mentioned in the Bible as the offspring of the sons of God and daughters of men. The Watchers are in fact the “sons of God” that the Bible is referring to. In addition to that, the term “Watcher” in connection to Noah’s flood, is found in the Book of Enoch and not Genesis 6:1-4. To be fair, FilmCrave is the source for the Slashfilm comment, but after looking at the Slashfilm website, they actually said the following:
“Interestingly, while the angels may seem like Aronofsky’s most bizarre addition to the tale, they are in fact referred to in the Bible. Genesis 6 mentions Nephilim, giant offspring of the “sons of God” and the “daughters of men.” The part about them having six arms may be Aronofsky’s idea, though — I’m not sure.” - Slashfilm
The Nephilim As Noah’s Helpers
First and foremost, the Nephilim were not good guys and they never would have helped Noah because the entire intent of the flood was to wipe them out. However, Aronofsky plans to present them as some type of helpers/saviors on the side of Noah’s cause.
“The tyrant Akkad, who Noah went to visit in the city of Bal-llim, chased him and sentenced him to flee. After consulting with his grandfather Methuselah, Noah decided to rally to his cause the terrible Giants and accomplish the task entrusted to him by the Creator…” – Slashfilm
This isn’t some secret Hollywood conspiracy. This is a blatant twisting of scripture in order to make a quick buck from Christians.
Aronofsky’s Attack On The Bible
In my opinion it is clear that this is an attack not only on the Bible, but on the faiths of Judaism and Christianity as well. I doubt Aronofsky would take such liberties with the Quran and completely disrespect the Muslim faith. This targeting and attacking of the Bible, in my opinion, is very intentional and meant to make a mockery of what we believe.
What Can Christians Do?
Boycotts usually only serve to generate free publicity for the party being boycotted, which in turn helps them make more money than they would have otherwise. Examples: Chick-Fil-A, Jay Z and Kanye, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga. The reason that it has the opposite affect is because people make a huge deal about it on TV and radio, which makes other people want to see what all the fuss is about.
What I propose is a quiet resistance in the form of spreading the word among Christians to NOT SEE THIS MOVIE (quiet boycott) when it comes out. No protesting, no picketing, no comments in the media about it. In short, no giving him any free publicity. Just commit to not seeing the movie. I believe an affective way to accomplish this is to share this article with your friends and family and get them to commit to not seeing it when it hits theaters.
I have set up a Facebook Event Page for anyone that wants to support the cause. Share the page on Facebook, your website, and in Christian forums. Christians need to be aware that if they support garbage like this, they will only keep making more of it to deceive the masses. I love movies, but for me, this is where I draw the line in the sand. Where do you draw the line?
