Then things go very wrong. But when Noah's family gathers food for all the animals and for themselves into the ark, they all share again, living peaceably for the year they spend shut in during the flood.

Sometimes I avoid controversial movies until the brouhaha has died down, dried up and blown away like a tumbleweed in an old western. I like to watch those movies with a fresh eye, but with Noah, it turns out the fuss last Spring was actually much more entertaining than the film.

And so it came to pass that God persuaded the Founding Fathers that all fellas should be permitted to bear these weapons to protect theyselves from intruders and folks who wore hoodies. Thus was it written in the Constitution and it remains the holiest of all laws in this here land of ours. Amen.

The Best Films of 2014: MOMA-Style

What does an angst-ridden comedienne tackling abortion onstage and in her personal life, a closeted heir to a vast fortune with a yen for Olympic-bound wrestlers, and a concierge bedding septuagenarians have in common? They are all characters in films selected by the curators of the Museum of Modern Art.

Noah: Colonist, Ecologist, Sociologist

Picturing Noah as a colonizer of an empty world rather than a survivor of a doomed world enables us to use Noah as a model for dealing not only with catastrophes, but also with the lesser setbacks of ordinary life.

Rabbi David Seidenberg | Posted 12.24.2014 | Religion
Rabbi David Seidenberg

One question for us today, in this year of Shmita, is: how can we get ourselves back to the garden? Back before our fellowship with the animals was lost?

Noah in the Time of Ebola

Rabbi Michael Bernstein | Posted 12.23.2014 | Religion
Rabbi Michael Bernstein

To feel helpless or afraid in the face of a danger like Ebola is a natural reaction. Noah's story tells us that this too can be an opening for G*d -- neither a surrender to the void nor a rationalization for a plague but a prayer from the depths that affirms the holiness of being human.

'Noah' and the Boring Fundamentalism of Hollywood Bible Movies

Sometimes evangelical Christians make movies. And usually they are horrible. The themes are poorly executed. Instead of life imitated in inspiring ways through the medium of film, a sermon is smugly preached.

H. Hirsch Cohen

An unbiased person, hearing of the severity of Eve's punishment for nibbling on a fig, may conclude that God is overreacting. But, in this instance, God doesn't deserve the bad press, because, I would contend, God does not punish Eve.

The magnificent story of Noah appeared in the Torah first and then entered the Bible, and that it is central to the Quran. It doesn't belong to one religious group, but to all human beings.

Unless you are the senior Senator from Oklahoma, work in Exon's PR department or have a brother named Charles Koch, the evidence of carbon-based climate damage is excruciatingly obvious, scientifically proven, and, like Easter bunnies in heat, mounting rapidly.

The latest IPCC report underscores how climate change will create changes in crop production, yielding an increased chasm between supply and demand. To me, the natural ensuing question is, "If you thought there was a chance that something bad could happen, would you do something to prevent it?"

Now I get why some Christians are upset at Noah. They want and expect an exact rendering of Scripture's account portrayed on the big screen. Perhaps they wanted Hollywood to undo what the Church has done to Noah and the Ark for the past 50 years
