Actually it does make a lot of sense. I just dont like the idea of a forerunner invention killing them all off, I guess I want Flood origins to be a bit more spectacular.

Thanks for the input, people. I'm liking the idea of an overmind AI (that would be the last piece of the halo puzzle) and replacing the 'halo god' but I'm thinking that what will be revealed in Halo 3 is going to be a some type of spin of this theory.

Maybe, but a physical god is entirely unneccesary and i doubt will come into play (except as possibly a twist of an already introduced entity, such as the gravemind). The biblical concepts of the sinning and resulting flood are based on reality-trying to change what we are and make ourselves 'godlike' will always result in failure, because for better or worse we are not 'godlike.'

Also, I doubt that the flood were created (if they were created) in anything like their current form, especially if they were created to benefit the forerunners. (This thread is turning into a cross between Doom and Battlestar...)

Yeah, I can see I was mistaken about the entire idea of the flood being created by the forerunners. To follow that up, I'm know the 'god' in this won't be physical or really a god at all (the name just fits the job).

To clarify, the 'god' is either the essence of fate itself or some ultimate force of judgement. This is the thing that sent the flood here as punishment and guided the architect of the Ark on how to build it. It will have influenced the universe from the very beginning. This omniscient character that fits perfectly with the 'Durandal survived' theory. But if not him than you could call it a real god, for the ultimate biblical connection. However the reason I though of over mind AI is because of the marathon connection theory.

As for the flood, a change is called for. Instead of the influenced accident of the forerunners making them, it will be the accident of them coming here. I mean, it's likely that it was nothing more than a large rock they floated in on, and by sheer luck it found the forerunners? Either it was a planned action by a flood intelligence in another galaxy, or this was some divine punishment on a very large scale.

Though, as time goes on, I'm falling away from halo a bit more each day, as school approaches, and I'm believing in this theory less and less. Still I'm holding on to everything that is left with my theory and simply tweaking it as things change.

Simple question, what was the original sin? Some naked chick handing a dude an apple? No nothing that simple...

The original sins was the loss of innocence through the discover of "knowledge". The paradise of ignorance can be hell for those who want to know more. And I believe the Forerunners wanted to know more and the searched all of the universe until they discovered the extra-verse.

AdjutantReflex said -
Can you feel it?
Beating at the heart of the Universe.
Skin too thick to be sure.
It's alive though.
I'm certain.
What do I do with life?

From server 4 there is mention of an artifact (beating at the heart of the Universe). What if this artifact is a gateway to the extra-verse where the flood are from. So when Gravemind said that he is a "Monument to all of our sins", he's referring to the forerunners and their quest for knowledge, aka the original sin.
