For anybody who has seen Stargate SG-1 you will have seen the appearance of the Auri, malicious gods who are trying to take over the universe. i have noticed certain similarities to the Auri and christianity.

The Auri promise asccension (eternal salvation) in exchange for worshiping them. And if you dont you will suffer (hell). They have destroyed the disobedient in the past (saddam and gamora) (egypt) and promise to in the future (armageddon). They send out Priors (missionaries) to teach from the book of origins (the bible) and impose there veiws on others. (christianity).

Just some observations i have made

I agree. It's pretty obvious that they're supposed to be Space Christians. The Prior from the last epiosde (played by X-Files smoking man) did kind of look like Pat Robertson.

I think that the Ori are more like extremist interpretation of religion generaly: their way or no way at all, they kill those who do not wish to convert. Their promise of "paradise" is actually false, their ways violent and they are represented by fire (hell).

Also in a earlier episode of SG-1 one of the characters reads through the bible and comments that a false god couldn't do any of those things.

Just a thought.

There way or no way at all may seem like a hash interpretation of religion but if you think about they are the same except the Auri are less subtle.

The church does not say that if you dont follow our path you will be destroyed. They say theres nothing making you beleive in christ...But if you dont you will burn in eternal hellfire.

So in a way both the Auri and christianity rule through fear.

P.S. space christians lol

The Ori are a perfect example of any of your present earthly religious groups except for they're
space christians. No offense to christians. It just sounds cool!
And to the person who mentioned the prior looking like patty robertson! Right on dude! How stupid is that to be told the truth(substantially backed up with proof) and still not be able to see reality!
The whole origin is paralell to the bible and the priors analagous to various politico-relgious heirarchy.
They promise salvation at the cost of giving up ideas, originality, thinking, etc etc . Hmm...I wonder what that reminds me of.

Paperclip:
I beg to differ. Their promise of "paradise" or better, "ascension"( since even they know they cant get away with the "heaven/hell" bunk) is false but not common knowledge and only known to the elite. They get their powers from exploiting poor unguarded souls and tricking them into following the Origin.
Their ways are violent but no less than what christianity has been upto for the past 2000 years. Infact the Ori are good enough to always give you one chance, always!
Representation by fire hmmmm... yea I think thats just for kicks! The priors seem to have this whole magical staff i'm-glowing-in-the-dark-angelic-thing going on though.

P.S. Daedalas: The wax-wings dude or the intergalactic ship?

Deadalas was a supposed government A.I. project used to spy on other countries or centralize all the computers or something I forget, i only remeber the name.

If you have ever played the game Deus Ex it references Daedalas in the game i think. But i had forgot about the ship the daedalas. not sure what you mean by the wax-wings guy though.

the ori are actually supposed to represent all religious fundamentalists and extremists.

they commit suicide by selfimmolation (setting themselves on fire) as buddhist monks did to protest things.

they follow a book strictly (both islam and christianity.

it isn't christianity because they have no unifying central messiah.

This is not unique to christianity. The Ori/Auri talk about acension through physical evolution (not generational evolution though). Thus, they are more like theosophists. Neither is destroying the wicked, sending out evangelizers, nor anything else that the auri are doing specific to christianity. The term "Pryor" seems to come from later christianity though.

Also, as pointed out, if they were to made to be a commentary on christianity in particular, I'd think that they'd be talking about a particular god, ruler, powerful being, who is gone but will come back, maybe in the terminology of the show he's gone to another dimension, or is trapped between stargates, etc.

Of course, the return of a saviour occurs in islam too.

edit:
So maybe not space christians (anyone remember mel brooks' 'jews in space'), perhaps Space Zealots?
