To be honest, we've been given so many hints and clues that the Humans are Forerunners that we should've seen it coming. The fact Guilty Spark said it is only the icing on the cake. The first set is given to us in Halo 1, particularly to do wtih GS's murmurings in the Library and on the Pillar of Autumn. The second clue is that only Keyes could get the Index, not the Covenant.

That, and the fact that a pretty big instllation was on Earth.

I honestly now can't see why people just won't accept this.

Yes true, but we also got clues that they might not be, but i'll believe humans are Forerunners

I'm still going by what is says IN THE GAME that the forerunners saved humanity from the flood by doing something.

I don't think they are, somehow. It just doesn't seem right. Plus 343GS says something about the Forerunners leaving the Ark behind.

k, This will settle it, The forerunners are humans. It would make sense that they are because 343 said to the mc, at the end battle, "You are forerunner, but this ring, is mine." so that settles this arguement, gg..

Ps, the index, just so you know, is a Dna index of all life, it is kindof explained a bit in those little "marathon panels" you can find randomly.. So seeing as the rings vaporized all life, the cradle world of the forerunners, earth, was repopulated.. and it can be easily explained, they have(the Forerunners) AI and highly advanced technologies, so DNA sequencing wouldn't be too big of a challenge.. Plus, with the addition of the ARK into the plotline, it's now obvious that seeing as earth has the Portal itself, why wouldn't some humans/forerunners go to the ark, light the rings, then go back to earth and start over..

But, that's the thing. I think they did go to the Ark and activate them, heck, it makes sense.

If they went back to Earth though...what happened to all the tech? Why didn't they start again from there they left off? Halo destroys life, not mechanics.

True but think of it this way, you know what happens with the Halo at the end of Halo 3? So that it doesn't fire? Well maybe that happend, but the Flood didn't make it to Earth, stayed on the rings, and then had no 'food' so they died, and thats how they got buries through the years, then the Forerunners could of repopulated.

"Both the games and novels contain content that has led to speculation that the Forerunner species is somehow linked to Homo Sapiens of the 26th century. This section is a synopsis of the material leading to the theory. This theory, however, has been disproven due to the opening of Episode 5 of Iris stating that the Forerunners discovered humanity and Earth and built the Ark to protect Humanity from the activation of the Halos and protect them from the Flood. In short, the Forerunners are not humans. Although thye refer to us as "children" it is most likely because they saved us and we are the "keepers of the flame."

For one thing, 343 Guilty Spark Takes note of that during the last level of Halo 3, when he says "Protocol dictates action. I see now that helping you was wrong! You are the child of my makers. Inheritor of all they left behind. You are Forerunner! But this ring is mine. I take no pleasure it doing what must be done. This is because he means that the humans are similar in mentality and spirit to the Forerunners. He also says that they inherited all that they left behind, explaining why he needed a human to find the Index and why Truth needed Johnson to activate the Ark instead of himself. This also means that the Forerunner made the Cartographer Building on Earth to protect humanity so they may one dayactivate the rings to destroye the Flood." There you have it, Forerunners aren't related to humans, but are similar to them.(These guys are never wrong)

Thats a really well thought out explanation that should settle this thread once and for all.
