Seven days, seven creative periods, seven thousand-year periods. Although recorded in the Bible, religious scholars and believers differ on their interpretation of the details of the creation of the world. So how well did the creation scene in the film "Noah" portray the beginning of the world? That all may depend on your interpretation of the Bible.
The creation scene from the movie "Noah" was released on YouTube Saturday by Protozoa Pictures, the production company owned by writer and director Darren Aronofsky.
The scene consists of Russell Crowe as Noah telling his children the story of the creation. While the narration follows the biblical account, Aronofsky's animation depicts a process that incorporates aspects of evolution and creationism, beginning with The Big Bang and making its way to Adam and Eve.
"While there is no telling what Aronofsky's message is through this combination of ideas, it is, at the very least, one of the movie's most stunning bits," writes Ryan Kristobak for the Huffington Post.
The film was released March 28 and grossed $43.7 million in its opening weekend.
