    Sci-fi

    Post  Digdug445 on July 6th 2010, 1:10 pm

    I came up with a story awhile back. Its almost like a Christian Transformers. It's about this group of five people(possibly in a geeky bible study)and they start having dreams of this war that is going on. At first, they think it's spiritual battles. Then they discover a few craters close to their town, and they investigate, and befriend some Christian aliens called Jezots and as it progresses they find out that their dreams were not only spiritual batles but also battles between the two alien forces(the Jezots{the Christians} and the Jegnots{Pagans}) on the planet Jenon(Newly discovered by NASA in the outer areas of the solar system). Tell me what you all think and maybe we could come up with a better plot. Smile

    How does this planet support life? It's too far away so it's obviously really cold...
    Is it life as we know it or is it some really strange form of life?
    Or are they just purely "spiritual" beings?

    No they are not purely "spiritual", they are almost completely robotic, thats why they can survive on the planet. also in the the story the humans find out that Jesus went there in their form to pay for their failings(or you could say "glitches").

    Would his name be Jesus or have another name on their planet also would their plan of salvation be the same?

    He would have another name, but the plan of salvation would be the same except for the way he died.

    A thought I had was that how would a "robot Jesus" bleed? The blood of Jesus is what is so crucial to our salvation. To keep the stories parallel maybe you could make a point of the alien Jesus shedding his "oil" or something just as vital to that species as blood is to us.

    And "the way he died" brought up images of the droids in Jabba's Palace being disintegrated. LOL! bounce

    Yeah, there's a real conceptual challenge here. Handled well it could be really inventive and cool. But a step in the wrong direction might come across as unintentionally funny or disrespectful. Hmmm... No ideas at the moment.

    Yeah, I agree...be cautious not to be disrespectful. And I hope what I said wasn't taken that way.

    I guess another option could be to not go close at all to shedding blood so you didn't have to worry about the analogy much at all. I'd recommend either coming up with a pretty direct analogy or going very far away from it.
