@ Trey: The cool thing about humans is that we are totally capable at looking at our own species and saying "wow...  we are really fucked up..." and we do that quite a lot. Even when we acknowledge how fucked up we are, we are convinced that that acknowledgement makes us awesome.

I'm not entirely sure that you did, or didn't, mean for this to be taken with at least a teensy bit of sarcasm, so, if you did, I applaud you, sir. well done, either way.

Re: [Spoiler Zone] Prometheus

I don't know if they have this in LA, but in London there's this thing called 'SECRET CINEMA' where you supposedly don't just see the movie, you 'experience' it. There are actors and sets and 'recreations' and 'an expanded universe' and an appearance by Ridley Scott, etc...

And just like that...

Or if a species was labeled as evil and wicked according to the rules of a superior being, who then decided to exterminate them all via flood.  (Except for a very few who were deemed worthy, and were put to work saving all the other species.)

A lot of people believe an enlightened being did the above...

But I don't. I think that's bullshit. And I except my sci-fi to be on a slightly higher level than some low fantasy written by religious recuses thousands of years ago.

Oh cool, didn't know Secret Cinema did one for Prometheus, looks like they went all out. I posted about them awhile back, they did an awesome screening of Blade Runner a couple years back.

Also, that girl looks distractingly a lot like Allison Brie.

The latest episode of The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe goes over the science of Prometheus. Needless to say, they weren't impressed smile

Re: [Spoiler Zone] Prometheus

That show claims to be science fiction based on fact, only none of the facts seem to have been presented outside of the show, cause it doesn't list much. What I can tell you from the clips they have on the site is that it looks hilaribad and I kinda wanna watch it. It also looks like it makes more sense than Prometheus, which is something, I think, that marketing teams everywhere should be adding to the posters of all of their bad movies.
