Bill Maher's New Rule on Noah's Ark Story Makes Right Wing World Angry

As an atheist, I can tell you that of all of the books in the Bible, it's Genesis that marks the spot for me where I started to doubt the story. Literally on page one, with the firmament, and the order of creation, then the separate, contradictory story of creation. And lots of other things. But it's the Noah's Ark story that made me think, "surely, nobody really believes this."

The story can't be taken seriously without enormous faith goggles. There are plot holes galore, not to mention that the moral is really questionable, and this God guy comes off more like a monster. And yet, this fable is often presented as a children's story! God killed every human except for one family, and presumably all of the plants and animals that didn't make it on the boat. Imagine the stench of that impossible amount of animals on a boat for six months. It's not a story for kids, it's a horror. [Story continues below]

Amazingly, this has been made into a major motion picture starring Russell Crowe. I may have to watch it, just to see how they gloss over the big potholes in the story, like how one family could play zookeeper to the entire world's remaining animals for so long. How and what they fed them. How they kept them from eating each other. Where and how they stored the insects, arachnids, viruses snd bacteria. How they managed to clean up all of that animal waste . . . gaaahhhhhhh. . . Just, nasty.

Because of the movie, Bill Maher devoted a portion of his "New Rules" to it on this past weekend's Real Time. From my perspective, Maher was dead on the money with every line, and was funny while doing it. But Right Wing World is aghast, appalled and offended. Surprise!


Bill Maher Slams Christian Films: God 'Psychotic Mass Murderer'

God is a "psychotic mass murderer" who "drowns babies," HBO's Bill Maher says in a rant about the upcoming film "Noah," slamming Christians for believing in in a deity that he says isn't true. Maher, on his "Real Time With Bill Maher" program Friday night, kicked off his rant — which left few religions untouched — by complaining he is sick of seeing ads for the Russell Crowe movie, calling it a "floating piece of giraffe crap,". . .
