    Spoilers: The premise of the movie: Humans must be killed because they've despoiled the environment, so Noah tries to kill his granddaughter and ends up drunken and depressed because he can't bring himself to do the killing.

    What is this I don't even..

    Yeah that makes sense. Even just watching the trailer you can see Noah and Methuselah discussing God's flooding of the world because of the corruption of man. Doesn't sound like something a deistic god would do.

    That's what the Answers in Genesis crowd was saying about a deistic, creator God.

    Did you sister see the movie? If not, where did she hear this? Perhaps it is related to the mistaken view of the Answers in Genesis crowd who say something a little more subtle, yet still incorrect. They say that the God portrayed in the movie is merely a deistic God not the real God of the Bible. I don't want to give anything away, but this is not really true because there are indeed miracles portrayed in the movie.

    There's a version of the script floating around on the Internet somewhere. I don't recall his exact words but throughout the movie Noah is totally and completely focused on the Creator. Some would say obsessed at times.
