LOL, my mom's friend went to see it and hated it because there were "rock-men."

There were rock men in Galaxy Quest, too. That was a lot better film.

Now all you've got to do is get at least 2 of every unclean animal and 7 of each clean beast on that thing, with enough food to last a year, with all the many specialized diets all these millions of creatures require. Plus enough fresh drinking water, or at least somewhere to store it.

Oh yeah, somehow you're gonna have to deal with all the shit and piss from those animals... That's gonna be a 24/7 job for some unlucky sod. Just a day's worth of shit piled up on the top deck could capsize that sucker.

And somehow you're gonna have to stop the big dinosaurs from eating the little dinosaurs...

No to mention keeping animals alive in a dark, cramped environment despite malnourishment and no sanitation.

Remember, its mission failed if even a single animal dies.

Well said mate. But it was closer to like 16k animals total. Not millions. Remember the "kinds" argument.

oh! and its all baby animals. So we have to calculate how much food they would require at each single day of their lives from the first day they are born to the 40th day and "somehow" factor in how they kept all those new born babies alive AND got them away from their parents without being eaten AND taken care of them in each of their specialized manner 24/7 for 40 days and nights....or a year...Christians are unclear about how long it actually was.

Not to mention all of that other stuff you mentioned.

Wikipedia defines History as the "study of the past, specifically as it relates to humans". Things that have absolutely no evidence to suggest that they happened, and have strong evidence against their happening can be concluded as not having happened. Noah's Ark does not belong under history.

RE: Again with the Noah B.S. on facebook
I watched Noah yesterday (and the first half the day before). I was hoping it was going to use the Biblical story in the same way that Hollywood uses Greek mythology, as a source of inspiration for an epic tale of fantasy. The film was kind of shit though.

It just didn't really flow or have any real narrative. It felt more like a load of scenes stuck together and I didn't care about any of the characters. They didn't really go on a journey which is essential for any good story. There was no real struggle. And then at the end it lost its subversive element and ended as just a normal film based on the Bible.

Yeah, they've let a little evolutionary theory in under the door there.

16,000 animals is still a hell of a lot... And I doubt 4,000 years is anywhere near long enough to produce the millions of distinct species, and subspecies we see today.

The handy thing about using the word "kinds", is its so vague... On a large scale you can have several "kinds" of organism, corresponding to what biologists would call a kingdom... Right down to different "kinds" of mosquito, which would be called subspecies.

If they want to use that argument they need to agree which level of classification the word kind applies to... And... a) Is it a number that can reasonably fit on one boat and be managed by one small group of people. b) Is 4,000 years long enough for the huge variety of life we see today to evolve from those "kinds"?

Didn't someone say online the film mixed elements of Gnosticism and Talmudic tradition with Bible stories?

I'm here to question and to learn, and aren't they the same thing?

The film mixed bullshit from several different barnyards.
