I've been doing a little scientific research and I believe I've discovered clear and irrefutable evidence that Angelastic is correct:
Consider this obvious chain of relatedness:
1. The GLR has populated the OTC with trees that appear to be baobabs
is also the name of a musical group out of Dunham, NC consisting primarily of an artist named Phil Torres, who is also a writer.
3. Phil Torres has also written a book called "A Crisis of Faith - Atheism, Emerging Technologies and the Future of Humanity"
4. A Crisis of Faith
is a familiar trope and is a central element in Arthur C. Clarke's short story "The Star".
5. Clarke's "The Star"
had a Jesuit priest who was horrified to learn that a nova that eliminated a civilization was the Star of Bethlehem
6. Bethlehem is also a city in Pennsylvania
, named after the birthplace of Jesus shown on by that star, and is also the birthplace of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
7. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had his first major movie role as "The Scorpion King," first introduced in "The Mummy Returns"
and then expanded in the prequel "The Scorpion King"
8. "The Scorpion King" had a soundtrack with the single "I Stand Alone"
, recorded by the group Godsmack.
9. "I Stand Alone" was recorded at The Hit Factory
in Miami, Florida. This studio was formerly known as Criteria Studios
10. Criteria Studios was where The Allman Brothers recorded the studio parts of their classic album "Eat a Peach"
11. There have been recurring rumors
that the name "Eat a Peach" and the album art allude to guitarist Duane Allman's motorcycle death in 1971, but it actually refers to a comment he made when asked by reporter Ellen Mandel of Good Times Magazine
, "How are you helping the revolution?" Duane Allman's reply included, "...and every time I'm in Georgia, I eat a peach for peace."
12. Georgia peaches
are world-famous and the name is used in many ways. There's even the Georgia Peach Award
-- an award for outstanding teen literature.
13. The first Georgia Peach award was awarded in 2005, and was won by "The First Part Last"
, a book that deals with...
It's obvious what the implications of this are: Angelastic was 100% correct!
