Never saw this one. A friend gave me a brief plot synopsis and I said, "Oh, so it's 2001: A Space Odyssey, only with sci-fi horror and a lot more stupid dialogue?" :)The "God was just a species of advanced aliens who genetically engineered humans" trope is getting tired. I think any popular sci-fi work (except for Star Wars, maybe) hasn't touched on it at least briefly. No evidence for it whatsoever, but it's supposed to be more plausible than "An extra-universal being created the universe with its specific parameters to get a species that resembles it." Why, because it features things within the confines of the universe? -Sean
Yeah, the alien seeding theme is pretty old. Figured in Star Trek, as well as being fundamental to the X Files mythology. Ancient archetypal stuff, with the aliens replacing the gods. Jung saw the UFO phenomenon as continuous with that, a sign of our indelible myth-making nature.
