Chris James Posted October 18, 2013 Report Share Posted October 18, 2013 The Bible contains a lot of stories. Scholars feel that many of them were collected over time from various cultures and passed down in oral tradition. It is an interesting read if you don't get all tangled up in the religious concepts. The largest fictional story in the book is about Noah and his fabled Ark. Again, the historical scholars point to the massive floods that occurred in what is now modern day Iraq. When the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers overflowed and covered the land with water it must have been an impressive site. The legend of Noah is more likely believed if we take some poor guy, his family and their farm animals and put them on a boat tossing around on flood waters. Not two of every animal in the world, that is plain absurd. Just like this film will be: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/10/18/source-studio-wants-noah-blockbuster-to-be-biblically-accurate-director-feels/ But lowly stories about the trials of one poor guy and his family caught up in a local flood doesn't sell books. The story of Noah and the number of people who accept it as factual only reminds me that if you tell a lie often enough some will believe it is gospel. It seems Hollywood doesn't know what to believe. Quote Link to comment
