The well-known Biblical tale is brought to life as a stop-motion musical, which feels more like Rankin/Bass's specials in the medium than a Disney production, only it's more stylized. Noah is advised by a heavenly voice that a great rainstorm is coming which will wipe out most of Earth's inhabitants.

Dans une première partie, un rappel historique permet d'exposer les concepts aboutissant à la définition de la "personne humaine". Dans une seconde

Ever Wonder Why Ice Floats on Water?
When water freezes, it expands and becomes less dense. This means that there is the same number of particles taking up more space.  Since the ice cubes are less dense than the water, they float! As an ice cube melts, its volume changes, but its weight is conserved (law of conservation of mass). So, the melted water has exactly the same weight as the water it displaced as an ice cube the water level stays the same! (0:44)
