    Could a Q had been Jesus? Was this idea ever explored in Trek?

    Sure why not?

    No, though the idea that the gods were just aliens has been. (Who Morns for Adonais, How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth)

    The only time anything like this has ever come up (that I'm aware of) was in one novel - can't remember which - where Picard sarcastically says to Q "So you're not claiming to BE God, just saying that you knew Him?" and Q, with a completely straight face and not joking at all - which freaks Picard out - replies "He's tough to know, in the strictest sense..."

    And for obvious reasons, I personally think it would be a shitty thing to do to have an episode or film actually portraying Q *as* God or Jesus. Not even SG-1 dared do that.

    Yes it's hilarious that the Goa'uld or the Wormhold aliens or whoever get to be the Gods or prophets of entire species and planets but the only way they get to do that on earth is if it's a dead culture such as ancient Egypt.

    Doesn't really seem like Q's style. Although fucking with some poor carpenter's mind to convince him that he's a messiah and to go get himself crucified seems right up his alley.

    Ten points for the thread title :lol:
     
  7. Much evidence exists to show that Christ was truly the Messiah.

    Jack O'Neill asked Teal'c once if a Goa'uld could fake being a Christian God, Teal'c said given the basic Gou'uld psychology and from Teal'c's knowledge of Christianity beliefs, they just wouldn't be able to pull it off.

    At the risk of getting this thread shipped off to TNZ, isn't evidence for the existance of god, and not just any god but the abrahamic god, a prerequisite for evidence of his messiah?

    It's from SG:1 Demons.

    Quite a plug from Teal'c for the Christian God.

    DANIEL : Well, if these people were already Christians when they were taken from Earth, that suggests this Goa’uld is…is playing…
    O’NEILL : God? As in God God? It’s a bit of a stretch, don’t you think?
    TEAL’C : I know of no Goa’uld capable of showing the necessary compassion or benevolence that I have read of in your Bible.
    O’NEILL : You read the Bible, TEAL’C?
    TEAL’C : It is a significant part of your Western culture. Have you not read the Bible O’NEILL?
    O’NEILL : Oh yeah, yeah, not all of it. Actually, I’m listening to it on tape. Don’t tell me how it ends.

    Unless you happen to be Jewish. Then it's pretty much a wash.

    He's not the Messiah. He's a very naughty boy! :)

    No truly loving God will create hell in the first place and FYI jews don't believe in hell or eternal damnation.

    Correction.
    Hell for Q would be being trapped with the Pakleds. As one.

    Other races.. I could be a smartass and ask if that wasn't what Jesus was doing, hanging out with other races. But I think a lot of Christian theology presumes us to be the only species in the universe.

    The worst example of that is in Seth, where we discover that the Goauld Set has stayed on Earth for 2000 years and only got to be head of a cult of about 12 people... With that length of time, logically he should've at least been Pope...

    I'm only on season 5 so I'm still holding out for the big Goa'uld = the Pope revelation.
