EXT. THE OCEAN - NOAH'S ARK - DAY (SUNNY)
The ark is floating on a never-ending stretch of water.
Subtitle: "2343 BC. One year later."
Above the ark, clouds form in the sky where we HEAR God.
It's time for another chain reaction...
EXT. CONTINENTS UNDERNEATH OCEAN - OVERHEAD VIEW
Eastern and western hemispheres split and move apart.
South America moves west, pulling Antarctica westward too. Since
Antarctica is directly east of Africa, they COLLIDE!
This BOUNCES Antarctica off the east coast of Africa, pushing
Antarctica on a southeastern course, now heading under Africa.
On its way down, Antarctica SMACKS India to its northeast, BUMPING
India northerly on a collision course with south Asia.
Still on its way DOWN, Antarctica CLIPS Australia. This DRAGS
Australia to its current position with Antarctica ending up south of
Africa but still attached to South America.
These collisions cause mountain ranges to form, pushing up above the
water's surface. Moving westward, the entire western hemisphere
develops mountain ranges along its west coast, slowing the drift
until it stops.
EXT. SOUTH ASIA - AERIAL VIEW
India's IMPACT into Asia forms the Himalayas. This closes the Pison
River, pushing Azazyel near the top of the range. This impact
closes up the Hiddekel River gorge through Asia, forming mountain
ranges bordering modern-day Russia and China.
Finally, this collision creates the mountains of Turkey just below
Noah's ark, where it comes to rest.
