Speaking of films... Genesis???

I heard recently that Paramount Pictures are producing a film version of the Genesis creation account. The story is really not that interesting and I'm really not sure how it will pan out as a full-length feature film. I'm hoping this film sparks up a whole new creation-evolution 'controversy', because it gives science an opportunity to set the facts straight.



  1. Hahahaha you're so anti! The story's interesting as. You just hate it cos you used to believe it actually happened.

  2. I don't think it's interesting enough to make a feature film out of it. The actual text of it can be read through in about 5 minutes or less.

    Not to mention the fact that there are two different creation stories that tell two different conflicting accounts of the events.

  3. Maybe it will be like one of NonStampCollector's videos where Yahweh has a back-and-forth argument with himself and then Jesus walks in and screws everything up.

    I think this could play out as a comedy.

  4. Haha! That could have some potential as a comedy. Especially if you include the Sumerians, who were around when the whole thing happened (if it goes along with young earth cretinist beliefs).

  5. Lol I can see it now:

    God (played by Morgan Freeman of course) says "Let there be light!"

    The lights go on.

    A Sumerian pokes his head out of the tent: "Do you mind? It's the middle of the bleeding night out here!"

    God says: "Oh, terribly sorry, I thought I was all alone in the Darkness..."

    Great potential for a comedy film. It'd almost be worth the extremist backlash! And once they've made it they can then make a comedy version of the Koran - there haven't been enough terrorist attacks on Western targets in the past few years, so I'm sure that will help bring all the budding young suicide bombers out of the woodwork :)

  6. That would be quite the controversial film! It would also be something I'd pay to go and see. Unfortunately, they are actually making this film as a serious movie as far as I can tell.

  7. Love to play the kettle-drums on that one.

    Never tire of listening to this piece.

    So cool!
