PROMETHEUS & THE LONDON OLYMPICS
I don't really know what got me started down this 'conspiracy path'; it could have been the news that Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" was 'rushed through production' to ensure a summer 2012 release date (after stalling several times before) and the very tragic and determined death of Tony Scott and maybe that it's more symbolic a story than we usually get in supposedly-non-Communist (big C) western cinema.
But, in the same way that Prometheus presents obvious and glaring visual references to its 1973 forefather making it a real and unashamed Alien prequel in every sense, it also has (for me) an intimate link to the ZION-like visual inspirations celebrated by this years London Olympics.
Note: statue above, Prometheus held captive by a RING depicting the 'orrery of the sky' via the Astrological signs on its surface. Notice also the MOUNTAIN OF MADNESS behind the flying titan, reminiscent of Guillermo Del Toro's cancelled Lovecraftian film. And here we go...
The SERPENT: aka the Hammerpede. Came from nowhere (well, some random worm). Was never explained (here, kitty-kitty). Yet, this is the esoteric core of the City of London, i.e. The River Thames. In the center of the Eastenders snaking image of London's River Thames, you'll notice a BIG WHITE DOT under the B of BBC. That is the O2 Centre, constructed in 2000 after the London Eye was constructed in 1999.

The OLYMPIC RINGS: there are five of them. In Prometheus there's a FLYING RING (just like there was in the Olympics Opening Ceremony) that then goes up to meet its four brothers. This happened in Prometheus with the FIVE ANCIENT-BURIAL-MOUND-LIKE SILOS or weapon stores on LV-223, where each contained a RING-LIKE Juggernaut when, if you'll remember from Alien, the 'derelict' that housed the Space Jockey had much straighter arms.

The ORRERY: there's also a sculpture of another titan, ATLAS at the Rockefeller Centre in Chicago. Which in the film is rings within rings. Oh, let's have a look if there are five of them.

In further research, you'll find this image depicting Prometheus and Atlas and the Hammerpede sharing space on a Greek stamp for 4.5 drachmas.

Remember, the script for Prometheus has been widely criticised as being TOO BAD TO BE SUITABLE for such a simple concept as a prequel to a 1973 film, so on that basis alone, Prometheus is something other than a reminder of how the ESJ or Elephantine Space Jockey got chestbursted (which is still never explained, as promised).
Prometheus is symbolic of something else, some other 'corporate story'. Let it be noted that the London Bombings happened THE DAY AFTER the London Olympics was announced on July 6th 2005. Similarly, the 9/11 event happend THE DAY AFTER Donald Rumsfeld announced a $2.4 trillion missing from Gov Coffers PLC.
