    It was just a movie, based on a book that someone imagined...

    You miss the point entirely. Didn't you bother to read the message at the website I provided?
    “The explanation value of the evolutionary hypothesis of common origin is nil! Evolution not only conveys no knowledge, it seems to convey anti-knowledge. How could I work on evolution ten years and learn nothing from it? It does seem that the level of knowledge about evolution is remarkably shallow. We know it ought not be taught in high school, and that’s all we know about it.” (Dr. Colin Patterson, senior Paleontologist at the British Museum of Natural History)

    I read the message, some fans at a university wrote about what they thought everything in the movie meant, I did not read their "book".

    but, it is still just a movie, based on a book, made up by an author.

    In a recent retrospective on the movie, someone commented that the monolith was shaped like a smart phone. A prophecy?

    In the eternal battle of "we're right and you're wrong" atheists vs. Christians (in particular here in America), one thing is certain.
    Nobody in heaven will be laughing and guffawing at the atheists suffering in hell. We will all be saddened that they rejected their Creator.
    But it will be too late.

    As a fine Texan said to me recently in the airport as we waited for our flight, "You can be wrong about a lot of things, but you'd better get this one right."

    No, that's not "certain". It's what you CHOOSE to believe.

    Besides, your opinion on this doesn't even jive with what the bible says...

    4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Rev.21.4)
    "If you think they hate Trump now, wait till his policies start working." (Dennis Miller)

    "Those who beat their swords into plowshares usually end up plowing for those who kept their swords." (Benjamin Franklin)

    I always took the Obelisks to be 'self aware conciousness" themselves.

    Perhaps, they were some sort of AI created by some ancient star faring species, or, perhaps, they WERE the species, self-evolved in to said obelisks.

    Either way, they obviously liked "life," and were invested in pushing "intelligence" in life forms....
