Lately I've been wondering if there isn't something to the idea of ancient astronauts. In particular, consider the story of Adam and Eve. Why would you put two people in a garden and put a particular tree there they shouldn't eat from? There's only one reason: it's a test.

Furthermore, you have Adam naming the animals. As soon as the eat the fruit, they get cast out of the garden. As soon as they acquire knowledge. Once given knowledge they are cast out of the garden.

Okay, here's where I'm gong to get loony. You have two subjects, you're testing them. There's a world being created, populated with life. Then poof...you put your two subjects on the world. What if the garden is not on earth? What if the garden, a utopian place where all your needs are taken care of, is simply a place on a spaceship. A controlled environment. Once you're educated, your put on a world.

Who knows, maybe angels are aliens. No one said they actually had to have wings and fly. Give me a spaceship any day.

I wonder what will be collectible in ten years. For instance, old comics are worthy money now because back then, kids were rough with their stuff and didn't treat them like valuable items, thus they became rare. But what items do kids have nowadays that will become rare and valuable in the future?

Early laptops, ipod first gens, any electronic that was popular but gets thrown out because a new model comes out (similar to the concept of how old cars become very valuable). Editions of the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion that are rated T (it was later rerated as M) (yay for me as I have a collector's edition rated T).

Add to that the original Xbox so you can still play Morrowind. Cool

I've got mine on PC but I'm sure an old school Windows XP will be valuable sooner or later. I do have a Game of the Year edition with a like new condition full color map of Morrowind which I understand to be rare these days. Very Happy

I wonder why it is that prisons have issues with murder, illegal drug use, and rape, and yet we are somehow led to believe that these issues can be taken care of in the real world? How can we possibly have any faith in the legal system if they can't even control the crime in prisons! You can't ask for a more controlled environment.

Don't tell any fundamentalist pastor that...

I, however, think it's an interesting theory! Very Happy

I wonder...

What would happen in the DC Comics universe if Superman snapped and went crazy. Any fans have any thoughts? Think he could even be stopped?

Well, there is Bizarro, who basically is crazy Superman - but of course Superman can stop him. If Superman actually went crazy, Bizarro would need to become sane and save the day...

Creating a paradox that would probably cause the world to implode (assuming here that such a paradox could produce a chain reaction similar to what Doc predicts in Back to the Future Part II).

Is it bad that I now want that kind of story arc? It would be awesome.
