Giants Among Them - More on Geonasis

While reading the EP2 spoiler section I noticed a remark made about the "lost jedi, those that had fallen away from the order and given themselves to the dark side". I'm a Bible studies major and I recall a discussion earlier this year in the book of Genesis 6:1-4;17-18:

"Now a population explosion took place upon the earth. It was at this time the spirit world looked down upon the beautiful earth women and took any they desired to be their wives ... In those days, and even afterwards, when evil beings from the spirit world were sexually involved with human women, their children became giants (Nephilim), of whom so many legends are told ... I am going to cover the earth with a flood and destroy every living being ... But I promise to keep you safe in the ship, with your wife and your sons and their wives (God in reference to Noah and the ark)."
(NLT I thought the best translation)

We all know that George is fascinated with Biblical literature and the deeper metaphors involved. So in this light I see a few things:

  1. The planet Geonasis (Genesis) being the rocky home of the lessers (lesser humans who were later destroyed in the flood).
  2. Geonasis is also the alleged home of Dooku. 'Evil Beings' in the Genesis, are usually interpreted as fallen, rebellious heavenly angels, who broke away from God's council to procreate more beings like themselves (clones? Anakin?).
  3. This new race of tainted beings are giants. The name of the Anakims is later used in the Bible to name a race of giants.
  4. Beautiful women impregnated. Shmi (or other women too) seems to have been very beautiful as a young woman. Dooku or Sidious could have spawned Anakin from impregnating her.
  5. This tainting of the human race could also be seen as the balance of the force being disturbed, and God needing to finally intercede with a flood to begin afresh.

There's tons of other things I could interpret, but will refrain from to much possible stretching. But there does seem to be a lot of correlation here. Make of it what you will.

Feedback welcome
