'Noah' makes a farce out of Bible story

To Mr. Aranofsky, producer, atheist and "Noah" filmmaker: What an amazing fairy tale you made out of the biblical character, Noah. Those of us who studied ahead of the movie realized that you were not about to make a factual biblical account.

Noah's sons did all have wives, unlike your story. Who else would repopulate the earth? Noah's wife, Emzara, was not given a name in the movie, or I missed it because of Russell Crowe's [New Zealand] accent and the British accent of Emma Watson, Shem's  girlfriend.

Imagine our hilarity when Noah's wife went around swinging incense and herbs to put the animals, birds, etc., to sleep. Supposedly, the fallen angels became rock formations with spirits inside to help Noah build the ark? I feel they were transformers to bring in the younger movie goers, and reminded me of "The NeverEnding Story."

Imagine our surprise when twin baby girls were born on the ark in 40 days. Huh? Mr. Aranofsky showed Noah's rage at people repopulating the race; he thought the new earth would be only animals, insects, birds, and fish of the sea.

My personal opinion is that Mr. Aranofsky meant to demean Christianity and make a farce out of the Bible story of Noah.
