I think the smoke monster being explained is the biggest key to the whole Island mystery and LOST show in general. Dismissing everything else as explainable by science I can agree with but an entity that has thought and can kill in the form of smoke cannot be from this realm and must be an unnatural phenomenon. If not a Genie, I just want to hear other ideas and possible theories. I don't mind mine being debunked unless another idea is not proposed in its place in your post. I have read ideas on everything within the show and many of them you can make a great case for but the smoke monster just does not fit with anything yet that I have seen or read. I would greatly appreciate your comments on this subject. It is the biggest mystery of the show to me.
