Screenwriter Harold Ramis and producer Judd Apatow of Jack Black’s new movie, Year One, certainly contorted the history recorded in the book of Genesis to fit their cinematic purposes, with Black’s character Zed living from the time of Adam and Eve through the time of legendary Sodom and Gomorrah, which in the Bible, is a span of about two thousand years (as Black’s Zed knew Cain and Abel), with a little diddy called Noah’s Flood during that timespan, but ignored in the movie, as if little changed on the earth between the time of the Garden of Eden and the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, with no hint of Black’s character riding out Noah’s Flood with the eight mentioned in the Bible, as that history (recorded in Genesis) would necessitate for historical accuracy in the movie, which plainly is of no concern to Hollywood.
Zed (Jack Black) meets the hebrew patriarchs Abraham and Issac in the movie, and deals with “Officer Rick” in Sodom and Gomorrah, in the 2000 B.C. timeframe, according to the Bible, and Abraham was ten generations from Noah, through the line of Shem, yet Ramis, Apatow, and sardonic Black act as if the Table of Nations (Genesis 10) doesn’t exsist in the Bible, conveniently ignoring it, and the global catastrophe which induced the genetic bottleneck beginning it, Noah’s Flood, with the eight (not including Zed) on the Ark, as the Table of Nations and the rest of the history and geography recorded in the book of Genesis are still unassailed as authoritative (even ‘though university archaeologists and linguists won’t admit it).
Since these hollywood types think biblical history is so funny, they could do a show about Noah’s Flood, about how funny it was when panicked crowds of people swarmed Noah’s Ark as the floodwater rose to cover that world (with our mountains having risen at the close of the Flood), and about Jesus saying that “just as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the son of man appears.” But I guess, that wouldn’t be so funny.
