I know I'm not talking about anything new. This is what the main storyline of Stargate SG-1 is built upon, and lest we forget, the movie that started it all, Stargate. The idea is so compelling to me as to be downright addictive, and the fuel for that addiction is the TV show which I am only just now gaining entrée to through the DVD sets of seasons 1-6. We are up to season 5 now. I've developed a crush on Dr. Daniel Jackson because, well, he's hot. The combination of intelligence and diplomacy works well for him.
But what's more compelling for me is the notion that those mythological gods are actually aliens from outer space. I find myself wanting to believe it ... no, admittedly I do believe it. It makes so much sense. I wouldn't be surprised to one day hear that it's true.
