Re: Genesis

The mechanism there does not require the witnessed lifeforms to be ancestors to the characters. Rather, they are "what might have been", lifeforms created by activating genes that normally stay dormant. That's not particularly unrealistic: the genes for producing chitin shells and webbed eyes are quite possibly in us somewhere, even though they have never manifested as spiderlike shapes in the course of human evolution.

Better question, do they really expect us to believe such a thing happening is even remotely plausible?

Just unreal the audacity of these bastards. Seriously insulting.
Oh, lighten up. It's a television show.
