Jacob a god?
« on: May 14, 2009, 12:42:42 PM »
The guy in the beginning talking with Jacob, lets say that he is the smoke monster since we can only assume that it is him talking to Jacob in the ending in John Lockes body.

We see on the wall in the cave, where Ben is going to seek out the smoke monster that it is some sort of a minion to a egyption god.
Therefor is Jacob maybe some sort of a god? We see him give life back to John, we hear from Richard that he gave him the power never to age.

This would explain why John Locke in the end cant kill Jacob since he is his minion and cant kill Jacob. Therefor smokey must have somebody else to do it so he can be free, and he convinces Ben that he has to kill him.

STAGGER!!!!! AWESOME!! Have you been on and I just missed you?? Or am I right in thinking that you were incarcerated in a mental health facility for a little while?? You're the only person on here that I can get mad at about that Stagger.

Hahahah. I like you.

Hold onto that opinion, you might change your mind down the road.

It looks like we can agree on a few things Bob.

Not quite going there, but I vote for aliens.   ;D

I'd rather not think about bible stories, so to tie in all the religious elements, I'm leaning toward the idea that "aliens" (or something) showed up and gave everyone all the ideas that led to similar stories in different religions. That's why Jacob keeps bringing people (like the ones on the ship, on 815, etc) to the island even though they always destroyed each other, they ended up with the same result but came up with different interpretations for what was going on every time... I guess what I'm saying is that it's not about religion, but about where religion came from, and how it's all just kind of an accidental development resulting from human nature...

(just not a fan of organized religion, sorry...)

A few I guess, but I don't know if this counts, because everyone who isn't a scientologist thinks scientology is stupid. LOL

Not a bad idea I guess, but when you think about it, there are plenty of conspiracies surrounding ancient civilizations being helped by Aliens, and guess what one of those civilizations are...Egyptian. BAM!!!

Anyone who likes Lost is good in my books.

As long as you agree with everything I say, and never voice your opinions about what you don't agree with, then we should be good. LOL J/K
