[noah: remembering the story]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • Unfortunately, it was not playing when I was able to get there (the matinee). So Jo & I went to Divergent at our local theater ($5/ticket). Noah is to come at the end of April. I plan to see it then. I WANT to see it then. I like Russell Crowe. And I want to see what everyone is “crowing” about. (I know bad pun, but what can i say?) They complain about it being written by an atheist. So what? Have they gone to see any movie where one was directing, writing, acting in it? I bet. is that any worse than seeing Scientology in Tom Cruise? Or how about “The Passion?” We all know what Mel Gibson did. Give me a break? it is a movie!!!!

    • Funny you mention the Passion – just watched it an hour ago with Sam. We decided to make the last month before the big day a special time of renewing faith and so we started Lent a bit later than everyone, but yeah. The only thing in the movie I wish was different is more pointing out the resurrection. I love that moment in the other Jesus’ movie (1999)… when Jesus calls Mary by name when she mistook him for a gardener. I always grin.

    I like that list of myths, especially #1 and #2…mostly because those are some ideas that I’ve thought too!!

    I’m currently reading a book based on the life of Job (Love Amid the Ashes), and when I’m done, I want to reread Job to compare the two. I can loan it to you on Kindle if you’d like – just let me know.

    And what in the world are golems? Gollum? in Golan Heights? 🙂

    • Yeah, I was guilty as charged about those #1 and #2 as well. And to think about it – I passed on the teaching to other kids… *Bowing my head in shame…*

      Golems – I have heard about them, but never read about them before Yevgen mentioned them. According to the Wikipedia:

      In Jewish folklore, a golem (/ˈɡoʊləm/ goh-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being, created entirely from inanimate matter. The word was used to mean an amorphous, unformed material (usually out of stone and clay) in Psalms and medieval writing.

  • I had pretty well decided to go see the movie and after reading your post I know I will. It does not threaten my faith because it is entertainment. There is so little really we know about what took place but I can be assured it was not did for entertainment. Love the points you gave on some myths we have used about Noah and the flood. Never heard of golems either but then there is much I have never heard of. This was a good written post Zee, thanks for the review.
