->Now, there is a big difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament, and that is the New Testament God is really kind of a great guy. He is, especially when you compare him to the Old Testament God, who is a prick. I don't know what happened to God over time, how he matured, if he went to an anger management class, or maybe just the birth of his son calmed him down. But before he had the kid, holy fuck he was out of control.

->You can find things in the traditional religions which are very benign and decent and wonderful and so on, but I mean, the Bible is probably the most genocidal book in the literary canon. The God of the Bible, not only did He order His chosen people to carry out literal genocide--I mean, wipe out every Amalekite [[FinalSolution to the last man, woman, child, and]], you know, [[EspeciallyZoidberg donkey and so on]], because hundreds of years ago [[AllCrimesAreEqual they got in your way when you were trying to cross the desert]]-- not only did He do things like that, but, after all, the God of the Bible was ready to destroy every living creature on earth because some humans irritated Him. That's the story of Noah. I mean, that's beyond genocide; you don't know how to describe this creature. Somebody offended Him, and He was going to destroy every living being on earth? And then He was ''talked into'' allowing two of each species to stay alive, that's supposed to be [[{{Glurge}} gentle and wonderful.]]

->God in this movie is a dick. The movie is supposed to be about Evan being some major asshole and through his experience of building the ark he is supposed to get his comeuppance and grow as a person. In some cases like ''Film/TheSantaClause'' that works... But God in this movie takes it upon himself to personally f*ck over Evan taking away his job, money, friends, associates, and also to punish him in a myriad of ways for his own personal jollies. Evan really doesn't deserve all this crap and it is odd that I feel sorry for this sad pathetic man who [[InformedWrongness really doesnít deserve a tenth of what he is really getting]]. Thatís not the sign of a good movie is it? Feeling bad for the person who is supposedly getting their much deserved lesson/comeuppance? If I were being a real prick, I would ask why God is [[UnfortunateImplications saving some 20 people from a flood in the suburbs]] and he let [[TheBigEasy Katrina]] go no problem?

->The root problem with Christianity is that their God is supposed to be all-powerful and benevolent. It sounds like an easy sell, but when life turns completely to shit you have to come up with all kinds of wacked-out reasons for why kindly old Jehovah saw fit to run over little Timmy with a combine harvester and leave him in a state of vegetative limbless agony for eighteen years. Ancient cultures didn't have that problem - they knew their gods were a bunch of drunken lunatics who ran around boning their close relatives and turning their goolies into fruit-bearing trees.
