    1) Are you even...familiar with the PE? Did you read the article I linked you to? Did you even run it throught that 8-bit processor you call a mind?

    2)Yeah and resinance cascades, zombies, giant insects and invading aliens are all completely logical.

    sigh.

    Yes, I am familiar with it, and yes I did read the article. However. There is no viable link between the man you think is GMan and the PE. You tried to make such a link. All i'm saying is that no link visibly exists.

    This does not say that you're not right. It just says that there's no supporting link hence, the evidence you present to back up your theory has a fundamental flaw.

    Gman looks like Oppenheimer

    Gman seems to have a scientific knowledge base/ background like
    Oppenheimer

    Gman is seen working on a nuclear warhead, Oppenheimer invented the damm things.

    The Government (Gman = Government man) started work on the PE in 1943. 2 years before the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Who knows what other projects they has him working on during that time.

    Gman is seen to be working for a higher power than himself. Possibly an arm of the government. in 1946 the US government formed the AEC which was basically a millitary think tank for weapons. Maybe that is why he treats Gordon in the way he does. he's just another weapon to be used.

    Gman seems to display the abilities and powers that would be connected to a person and or agency that has the king of perfected technology that was first seen in the PE.

    Who looks like loads of people.

    Er... how?

    The warhead was also worked on by Black Ops grunts - they activated it in the first place. Maybe they're all clones of Oppenheimer too. It's not like you can see their faces to tell whether they look like him.

    If the power to stop time and transport people around space against their will was invented by a US government project, why didn't they use it to, you know, not be conquered by aliens?

    Very Freud, but pretty much everyone works for a higher power.

    Maghead, you do realize that Gman is a moniker that the COMMUNITY gave the guy, right? Gman does not necessarily mean "government" man according to Valve. In fact, it's highly unlikely that he has anything to do with any "government" on Earth, or even not on Earth based on how HL2 ends.

    The file name for his model in HL1 was Gman.

    Yes, but no where has it been mentioned or confirmed by Valve that it stands for "Goverment man".

    It could quite simply be an abbreviation for Gordan Freeman....

    yes, apologies. I meant that "government man" was a moniker given to him by the community.

    Stop it...just...STOP IT.

    Not that anything else needs to be pointed out...but...Oppenheimer was working on the Manhattan Project before and after the supposed "Philadelphia Experiment", and he was pretty well known for dedicating himself completely to the Manhattan Project. Hell, I wouldn't even know if Oppenheimer, with his vast capabilities, would have been able to work on both projects simultaneously.

    Anyways, stop it.

    Note: I'm pretty sure you don't know what an 8-bit processor even is, so stop that too.

    This thread was quite interesting until petty namecalling broke out. :(
