Silver Screen Saucers has a nice post on the zealous promotion of the ancient alien fantasy that seems to be guiding the soon-to-be-released Prometheus, the prequel to the Alien film franchise. Here’s a short excerpt:
Just as you thought the Ancient-Astronaut-inspired Prometheus couldnt get any more UFOey, a new featurette for the movie reveals that the alien planet to which the human characters travel to meet their makers is none other than Zeta(2) Reticuli.
The link in the quotation leads to another SSS post about Prometheus that features the opinions of Alex Jones (“the high priest of the conspiracy community”). For those who don’t know Alex Jones, he’s also famous for being the guy who saw Charlie Sheen’s hernia.
