I guess Hollywood liberals did their market research and could read the "handwriting on the wall" when they green lit the new Noah movie. In the 3/13/2014 Double Jeopardy segment, the only answer contestants knew in the category of "Bible Art" was one about Noah. They didn't know about the Last Supper (FYI Michelangelo, not Leonardo, sculpted the Pietà), book of Daniel (with aforementioned handwriting), John the Baptist, or the Promised Land.
I found an awesome Jeopardy fan site where you can play along with old games. Here's the game for 3/13/2014. And I perhaps posted too soon, b/c in the 3/18/2014 episode, when asked "This sailor was the son of Lamech and the father of Ham" one contestant answered "Job" and another "Jonah". Technically, the latter was a sailor, albeit in a rather unconventional conveyance.
I suppose contestants were waiting for a question about the invention of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups:
Kathleen Parker could've been describing these culturally illiterate hipster Jeopardy contestants in her article March 14, 2014 Washington Post article "Noah’s arc of triumph" vs standard bête noire Christian Evangelicals:
The Bible’s authors were far more literary than we. They clearly had a keen appreciation for parable and metaphor as well as a profound understanding that truth is better revealed than instructed.
Armitage was the guy who leaked info about the CIA's Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag media whore power couple aka Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame:
from newsbuster's Brad Wilmouth's November 11, 2007 article: "Blitzer Asks Richard Armitage About Valerie Plame Leak" ICYMI, Democrats were stoked when they thought they could nail Cheney, or Bush, or some bigwig GOP for leaking CIA info. When it turned out a bald headed dweeb from State was the leaker, the media dropped the story down the gravity distorting memory black hole.
The CIA is no longer the Democrats' favorite cat's paw to use in bludgeoning elephants and RINOs over the head with, especially since the CIA started spying on them, as Maureen Dowd, in St Jerome Latin quoting fashion states in her March 11, 2014 New York Times article "The Spies Who Didn’t Love Her"
from Juvenal’s “Satires:” Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who will guard the guards themselves?
and like the picture of Saint Jerome that conflates his life with that of the Aesop's fable character, Androcles, who removed a thorn from a lion's paw @16:30:
no animals were harmed in the making of the new Russell Crowe Noah movie, from Walter Scott's 22 March 2014 Parade Magazine article "No Real Animals Used to Film Russell Crowe's New Noah Movie":
Yes, this is certainly NOT your father's Noah story since there is the minor detail fact that there's no mention of God in the film's script and it's not based on the Bible at all, from 21 March 2014 Breitbart article "Report: Missing Word in Noah Film? 'God'"
Q: Did they film with real animals for the movie Noah? —Martin C., Abilene, Tex.
A: Not a one. According to visual effects supervisor Marc Chu, director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) “didn’t want traditional animals. He promised Russell Crowe [starring as Noah], ‘I will never film you on a houseboat with two giraffes.’ ” Instead, for this telling (in theaters March 28), computer animation artists at the effects company Industrial Light and Magic created some 14,000 CG animals—none quite the same as any alive today. Says Chu, “This is not your father’s Noah story.”
Noah will rile some for the complete omission of the name “God” from the dialogue, others for its numerous dramatic fabrications and still more for its heavy-handed ecological doomsday messages, which unmistakably mark it as a product of its time.
And from 21 March 2014 Glenn Beck "The reviews are in: Noah preaches ‘rabid environmentalism’ with ‘no mention of God’"
The director/co-writer serves notice of his revisionism right away, mutating the opening line of Genesis into, “In the beginning there was nothing.”
