As someone who has the same background I ask you, seriously? Apparently this is what goes for research??
Then you should know you must research the material. It merely makes for a good story, that is all. To say the government funded this to "throw in"
symbols so people would buy into the subliminal message, is so far-stretching.
Stargate was not even a great movie. But this film came solely from the mind of the guy sitting at his computer saying "what if there was this guy
who studied Egyptology...?"
I never said it was greatly researched, merely that it was. People need to stop blurring the lines between reality and fantasy that films are. One of
the most controversial films ever made was Der Ewige Jude...The Eternal Jew. That was pure propaganda that was funded by the Nazis and it was filmed
as a documentary. But propaganda has found its way into many early films like Mother and The Battleship Potemkin. Those were both filmed in Russia
after the Bolshevik Revolution.
I have to ask you...when you made films, did you ever research the subject matter? That is one of the first things you do.Before you even sit down to
write it, you research it. Stargate was written by Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerick. Dean Devlin also wrote Independence Day, Godzilla and the Patriot.
Right now, I could take all these threads found on ATS and make a story about a guy who finds symbolism in everything he reads on here and turn it
into a movie. It might make a great story but it does not mean that ATS is trying to take over the world by possessing all the information.And it does
not mean that ATS funded the film or had any active part in trying to convince the world through subliminal information.
ATS is where a lot of people share information, but if the guy were to say "It's all true because I read it on a thread on ATS"...then you can see
how far stretched that is.
The reason Stargate and The DaVinci Code works is because the writers understand human nature. They tossed in the ideas of sybolism because that's
what the stories were about.
