Well done, Hicks! I thought this was going to be a red carpet thing, where you'd type up the responses for a report. Very 'fessional!
so alex jones was right that ridley scott believes we evolved from a 'humanoid' alien species. scott even brings up the 8 foot skeletons that have been found that have usually been fodder for fundamentalists that believe fallen angels interbred with humanity.
in ridley's case, you substitute fallen angels with 'humanoid' alien species, and you have his true beliefs regarding the origins of man. so prometheus wasn't just a fantasy for him. he really believes we were created by aliens.
It's never been a secret that Scott is interestered by the ET intervenionist theory. 'Chariots Of The Gods
' was famously an inspiration for the first film, from what I recall.
Nothing wrong with it, either. On balance, ET visitation is the theory I feel best eplains certain legends from the past, too (especially when you bring giant humanoids into something). Just wish he'd done more with it, because we don't explore much of actual mythological story explanations in this or the previous film. There was a bit more of that in the 'Engineers
' script, however.
