The point is, if you're going to make a movie based on a book, it would make sense to actually base it on that book instead of rewriting it?
You are aware, are you not, that Hollywood rewrites the stories for their movies all the time. In fact, I can think of few movies that are extremely faithful to the book.

Besides, it is a story about a fairy tale. Modifying the story is hardly a case of lying. The material in the Bible is hardly enough to sustain a feature length movie.

I think Elvis and KFC amongst a few others, make up for a lot.

Not that I have anti Southern bias, I read about the Civil war (they teach it in Sth America as well) and the South having rich soil is no reason to hate them.

As for religinuts, they infect everywhere over there, far as I can tell.

Also, that accent.. Never mind. Lol.

As offensive as the concept sounds, I'm going to examine this question from a cultural and historical perspective. All I ask is that you consider all of the information I present.
Child sacrifices and violent tyranny over women by warlike nomadic tribes were common in early history. Rape and murder of innocents was normal and even admired in some groups.
Pagan rituals of all types celebrated and encouraged this savage behavior. Somebody needed to step into human history to stop it.
So your God can be forgiven for being barbaric because all the humans were barbaric? Is that you story? You sure you want to stick with it?'Cause it sounds to me like you had a bunch of barbaric nomads make up a barbaric God.

Yeah. There are thousands of gods that humans have worshiped over the millenia. The odds of choosing the right one, if one exists, is incredibly small. Since there is no evidence for any of them, one might as well say to heck with the whole religion thing and sleep in on Sunday morning.

I'm just using your version of logic here,
No you're not. You're equivocating and turning it into an argument from ignorance.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
you think that absence of evidence means evidence of absense. I have an absense of evidence of your hands, everyone here does. By your conclusion, that absense of evidence is evidence of the absence of your hands.
Derp.
No, you are describing ignorance of evidence, not absence of expected evidence.

Do you expect evidence for my hands to be observable on Topix? Is that were hands usually are?

Unfortunately for you, you don't get to set the ground rules for God.
I do get to determine how I evaluate claims.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
Riiight.
Have you set ground rules for everything you don't believe in?
I apply rational skepticism as consistently as I can, no matter what I am evaluating.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
That's one of the stupidest statements ever. Religion has helped bring humanity together in a way nothing else could have. Christianity brought is hospitals, schooling, universities, the onset of science, art, literature, a family structure, peacefulness and togetherness. What has humanism brought? Free wbortions for 13 year olds?
I will grant you that Christianity has brought a significant amount of togetherness, for Christians. The rest is bullshit.

Listening to Alice Cooper's School's Out album.

Not the best Rock, but I am fond of it none the less, particularly School's Out for Summer. It has to do with the first time I heard the song. The summer I was 16, I attended a National Science Foundation math institute. The last day of classes was the day I first heard School's Out.

If God wanted to put fetuses and babies out of their misery then it could a) not create them in the first place or b) kill them instantly and painlessly. But instead, it chose to drown them, which was neither quick nor painless.
And if this is such a good idea, why did God promise never to do that again? Because the flood worked, right? Oh wait.
My neighbor informed me yesterday that the movie has it (almost) all wrong. For example, there was no such thing as rain before Da Flud.

It frustrated me.
The christian kills the bird of good omen, His fellowship cry against what he's done. but in the name of the Lord they Justify him and make themselves a part of the crime. sailing on an on across the sea! Sailing on and on and on a bloody tale! The Albatross begins with it's vengeance. A terrible curse of thirst has begun. your shipmates blame bad luck on the christian ,about his neck the dead bird is hung . time goes on and on for you and me!
Time goes on and on across the sea! And the thirst goes on and on for you and me!

Night after night day after day the ship go's on with no motion, as idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean. Water water every where and all the boards did shrink, water water everywhere...nor any drop to drink!

When was "all accomplished" ?

When that 1000 year is up ?
Seems nothing has been accomplished.
Seems Jesus was right:
"....until heaven and earth pass away...."
To understand this, one must understand the purpose and the Covenant with Abraham hundreds of years before. Only then will it make sense.
