Darren Aronofsky’s Noah Is A Blatant Mockery of The Bible

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.

Were the sons of God really fallen angels or just disobedient descendants of Seth, and did Jesus prophesy their return in the Olivet Discourse? - Enter Your Email Address Below.

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?

    I saw the film, & know the story of Noah very well. And I just Ask anyone who has actually read the Scriptures, & they will tell you the Watchers were in fact the reason why humanity became so evil & corrupted. Also, in no way or form is it mentioned the Watchers actually helped Noah in the scriptures either. Once again, Hollyweird fabricates lies for a quick buck.

    Adam,

    I actually changed my mind about boycotting Noah. I’m going to watch it just for the entertainment value.

    If you boycott Noah, I certainly expect you to never watch Charlton Heston’s 10 Commandments…doesn’t get much more “mockery of the Bible” than that…

    Why? It’s based on a series of non Biblical graphic novels that completely ignores scripture. I’m sure the movie will be pretty much the same.

    Maybe wait till someone actually sees the film and puts out a review/synopsis before calling for a boycott?

    Huzzah!

    Much to my surprise (and chagrin!), I see that Minister Fortson has posted my borderline insult, yet very astute comment to Vic. I think that he may just be taking a break (or leave of his senses), to have a little fun at our expense in our attempt at the fine art of “Tit For Tat” to which I would say that I have rightfully titted thereby giving Vic the opportunity to come with the much anticipated tat that should be forthcoming!

    I would say that I have brought this upon myself and therefore would describe my current situation as “Being attached to another object by an incline plane wrapped helically around an axis”.

    Yeah, that would be me then.

    Did I say I was not a super nerdy geek who is a regular viewer of “The Big Bang Theory”?

    I may have been wrong about that after all.

    Come then Vic with your mate to my check!

    Thanks Minister for allowing this kind of fun and diversion on your otherwise serious site!

    Sweet!

    Ok, since nobody else will, I’ll be the first to admit it: not being super nerdy geeky myself, or a regular viewer of The Big Bang Theory, I have to say that I have no idea what VIC just said! Can you break it down to where the common guy can understand it Vic? Or at least speak to those of us who only have a Masters Degree and not so many Doctorates?! Yikes!!

    Christians support Christian Projects if the marketing reaches that demographic en masse.,
    “The Passion Of The Christ” is a perfect example, I still can’t believe that film got made, as for the smaller more ‘localized’ productions etc., it’s still marketing but on a much smaller scale, and that’s the challenge most productions, whether it be music or movies, must overcome creatively.
    Where do Christians gather? What local radio stations do they listen to? (Radio ads are relatively cheap), IDK, thinking outside the box is a group effort sometimes, are there Catholic High Schools nearby? Where do Catholic Students go after School to ‘hangout’?….There’s more than one way to skin a cat to ‘get the word out’, draw from the infinite resource within…we all have that resource, but is tough to tap into sometimes because of the cacophany of Life around us.
