    Hi Hud - Welcome to JWN.

    This was funny:

    Interesting article. Looks like you wrote it. Did you actually interview Emmerich, or is this creative writing?

    Thanks Aude,

    Yes, many creative liberties were taken!

    I had been introduced to the book 'Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained' through my father and a point he had always made was how fearful the pictures of children and dogs falling helplessly into the abyss made him feel.

    Taking that into consideration I felt using Roland Emmerich and his images of destruction were inspired by way of the book and Jehovah's Witnesses would make a humerous article.
