I'm just taking a wild stab in the dark here, but maybe the blending of the Ganesha element into the visual thematic is just the visual artists way
of honoring the Hindu Deity? After all - the story is about a team of Alien Engineers that helped seed life on Earth...so it would stand to reason
that different cultures might have been witness to different manifestations of the alien beings over the course of their interactions and check ups on
the progress of human evolution.

I can't believe I missed this thread when it was posted originally - but better late than never.
On the subject of the Alex Jones interpretation of this film as being an "insight into the Illuminati Religion"....I daresay I loved the film, and I
saw a very strong Christian thematic throughout the entire movie.
(SPOILERS TO FOLLOW)
There was nothing in the series that I could see that denies the existence of a Ultimate Divine Creator, and I got the impression that the Engineers
were kind of like the emissaries of the Great Creator, almost like angels of a sort - doing what they do under the command of a Higher Authority that
created them for that specific purpose.
The "nightmarish" xenomorphs seem to have come about after an incident where I can only suspect an Engineer was murdered by a section of the human
populace, and the reason for the biological weapons installation that was stumbled across in the film....and also hints at the reason why the Engineer
who sees the small golden cross around Dr. Shaw's neck showed signs of anger and contempt...a cultural misunderstanding of sorts...rather than seeing
the symbol as a memorial, he may have has a negative association with it....almost foreshadowing how one of the Ambassador Engineers on Earth may
have been crucified for his involvement in trying to aid humanity in the past....a Christ motif of sorts.
All and all I thought the film to be exceptionally well done...I love the imagery, the attempt to show that all major human civilizations have been
born of a single Origin, despite cultural differences.
Maybe if Alex Jones could see that the True Illuminati aren't the cultural manifestation of "pop culture evil"...he'd have one heck of a show on
his hands discussing the beauty and mystery of human interaction and storytelling. I know the pop culture element is kinda his thing though, so
whatever floats your boat....people are going to believe what they want to believe.
At least we have an opportunity to discuss this independently on site and get to the heart of the matter.
