2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

I've always thought of the panspermia theory as a way to provide a sort of "God" force in explaining how life started on this planet in the face of doubts over whether it was possible in the timeframe available. That was certainly the reason behind Francis Crick's initial consideration of it.

Pan Spermia?
Too similar to a Greek God's ejaculation?
