I am extremely familiar with both of the Bible’s versions of the Noah story, yes. The movie is not strictly faithful to either of them. At times it is more faithful to Genesis’ first version version, with the Nephilim (rendered as rock creatures) and the saving two of each kind of animal instead of seven, and at times more faithful to Genesis’ second version, with its use of doves to find land instead of a raven.
And don’t forget Chastity Churchmouse!
Chastity Churchmouse was namedropped in today’s Dumbing of Age, so let’s reblog this old art.
Joel Watson really really wanted her name to be “Chastity Churchfuck,” but I’m pretty sure that’s not a name that would have flown with her fictional creators.
Religious Anti-Ninja Turtle Propaganda from the Ancient World
As it turns out, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are components of an evangelistic gospel of “outright Hinduism, occultism and humanism” that teaches children “ideals that are contrary to Christian beliefs” with subversive merchandise like “pepperoni sticks.” At least, that’s according to a group of curiously coiffed Canadian men in an early 1990s propaganda film decrying the original TMNT animated series, Vanilla Ice, Bart Simpson and other alleged evils of the ancient world.
ALL OF MY YES.
