    I want to thank everyone for some really amazing comments on my film. The film was designed to be a big screen experience, so I was unsure how well it would translate from the film festival world to youtube. For the fans of the film who are interested in a feature out of this, I did write a screenplay titled STAR MAKERS centering on Lufo and his involvement in the Big Bang (which turns out wasn't supposed to happen). I worked very hard pitching it to several big Hollywood studios, trying to get them to believe there was an audience for this kind of movie. Ultimately, it terrified most of them -- telling a story about a creative person trying to create something new within in a rigid system afraid of risk and originality, churning out cookie-cutter universes. The irony was thick. That said, it was in development with a major production company for a short time, but that didn't pan out. It's future as a film now appears somewhat improbable. But that that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be told. Hollywood is stuffed to the gills with great screenplays that were never made. I believe it's a great story, one that deserves to be told, and I hope to still get it out to the world as a novel. Thanks again for all the comments and the support. It's much appreciated.

    Read the two articles 'The Tragedy of the Moon' and 'The Triumph of the Moon' by Isaac Asimov (1972/3) to get a more fully argued statement about just how vital the Moon has been for the present state of Earth and the human race.

    Two assumptions stated as fact from the opening sequence:

    "Without the moon, Earth's axis would shift wildly [...]"
    "And without its tidal effects on the oceans, life would not have had the help it needed 380 million years ago to emerge from the seas [...]"

    The moon does not control Earth's axial tilt. It is also a fairly "recent" capture. In other words, it hasn't always been in Earth's sky. There was life on this planet, whether emergent or otherwise, long before Luna showed up (which occurred during human memory).

    The Universe is FAR more amazing and dynamic than this production simplistically portrays!

    This is an amusing and entertaining little short, and I like it a lot. However, it does bring to the attention questions of evolution vs creation. Or rather, questions if those two are the only choices.

    If it is possible that aliens exist, then isn't it possible that they might have meddled with our past as well? This depicts very early meddling, but it opens up many many different possibilities.

    I have no proof of anything. Proof doesn't always exist. But I've always found it conceited to think that we have all the answers to the questions. Sometimes it's better just to leave it as an unknown until you get more pieces.

    So interesting, but I am wondering that if we were made by the anther high level creature, then where are they from and where are their god from. It needs a origin, right? So why dont we adimit that we were born in nature and we may be the only creature in this universe. Just a bumping thought.

  • Trump & Bieber just suck, Okay? Deal with it.

    @Henry Jurkiewicz Also, there isn’t a point to human existence nor does there have to be, because we are individuals who exist due to evolution & reproduction. Humans weren’t created by some fictional deity with a reason/purpose to exist. Our lives are centred around what we choose to do while we exist.

  • Trump & Bieber just suck, Okay? Deal with it.

    @Henry Jurkiewicz “Science cannot tell you by simple observance of the sun how long it's been there“. Lol Yes it can. Thanks to science we know that our star is over 4.603 billion years old, it’s spectral class is G2V and it was created via the collapse of a molecular cloud, containing mostly helium & hydrogen. Science is a tool for intelligent people who want facts. Religion is a tool for stupid people who are gullible. That’s the difference.

    Tired of hearing this evolution bullshit.
    Without any backup, every nonsense is related to evolution and vice versa.
    Yes, if you are digging out a bone you can date the fossile to approx. a few thousand years because you have reference points, but no - you cannot do this for the past 380 million years. Unless you don't care about logic and believe any bullshit.
    When do people finally get it: Time does not solve problems. Time does not just make ANYTHING possible. Waiting for 100 millions of years without any results makes it even more unlikely that something happens after 200 million years. But sure, after 380 million years (cudos for the guy who calculated this nonsense), (because nobody can imagine such a long time anyway, right?) this and this happened, because yes, we have, let's say.... 5 objects of proof, right?? - It's just a damn theory without backup, when do people get it???
