I was discussing this sort of thing with Hans the other day.

My point was that G1 IS the 7th wonder of the world. As such if attracts those who at astounded to learn that those who are the best informed cannot categorically confirm every aspect of what it is, how it is, why it is, etc. Enter the rocket scientists.

If you can't prove who built....it could be anyone"
