	Dr. ZUCCO is in his Racal suit with his assistant SONIA BELL 
	at his side. He's placing a toxic substance back in the BIO
	holder and he locks it.
	
					ZUCCO
				(smiling)    
			I think that should do it Sonia.
			let's get out of these monkey suits

			You have a deal, Dr. Zucco!

	Dr. Zucco and his assistant Sonia Bell are having lunch
	and she asks him a very special question.

					BELL 
			Dr. Zucco, what ever happened
			to the Genesis Spore?

					ZUCCO
				(disturbed)    
			I think that is something that's
			best left alone, my dear.
			
					BELL 
			You can trust me, I will not tell 
			a soul!

					ZUCCO
				(disturbed)    
			I think a lot of you, or I would 
			not tell you a thing.
			
					BELL 
			It's that bad?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			You have no idea?


			
					BELL 
			Please tell me.

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			I was in my early thirties, and 
			I was on a special assignment for
			the WHO. We had been collecting
			toxic Ebola Samples deep in Kitum
			Cave when we came	upon a deep 
			crevasse. We could see a glowing bright
			green substance growing on the wall
			of the Crevasse.
			
					BELL 
			Green, like a bright light?

					ZUCCO
				(disturbed)    
			It was a glowing green, like an
			electronic green.
			
					BELL 
			Go ahead.

					ZUCCO
			My assistant Dr. Louis Bagu and 
			myself stared in awe and we were
			captivated by the glowing 
			substance. We knew then we would
			have to descend deep into the
			Abyss to collect some for our
			research.
			
					BELL 
			It was that fascinating?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Oh, You have no idea?

					BELL 
			Go ahead.

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			I took us days to rig up a method 
			for one of us to descend down what
			we estimated to be over a hundred
			feet to get some samples.
			
					BELL 
			Was it growing, and was it in
			great abundance?
					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			It was growing like alfalfa.
			
					BELL 
			Please continue..

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			I was the older, and of course the
			heavier of the two of us so my 
			assistant volunteered to go down
			into the Abyss.
			
					BELL 
			Did you suspect it was Toxic?

					ZUCCO
			Of course, something that beautiful
			had to be toxic. He wore the Racal
			suit, of course.
						
					BELL 
			Go ahead.

					ZUCCO
			I think Dr. Bagu was down well 
			over a hundred feet and when
			his airpack was almost empty  I brought
			him up. He was exhausted, so when 
			he removed his suit I let him rest
			then I bombarded him with questions.
			
					BELL 
			Was he ok?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Oh, You have no idea, he looked
			like a man who had seen god.

					BELL 
			God?

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			He had streaks of gray in his hair,
			that he did not have when he went 
			down. He appeared in shock so I
			covered him with a blanket. I gave
			him hot tea, then he started to
			talk.

	Sharif, Lensi, Gauthier and Duvall are sitting around the
	campfire. They hear the bellowing of the large cats in the
	background.
	
					SHARIF 
				(alarmed)
			The cats sound hungry.

	Sharif takes his pistol out and chambers a round.  

					GAUTHIER
				(In a lot of pain)    
			Well my friend, that will not
			stop a large cat, as long .... as
			we stay around the fire we'll 
			be ok.
			
					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			How much do you know about the
			Genesis Spore?

					GAUTHIER
				(not concerned)    
			Not very much why?
				
					SHARIF 
				(coughing)
			Well, when the Dead Sea Scrolls
			were found, our best scholars
			translated the Aramaic and Hebrew
			Scrolls. In the Aramaic version
			the term rib, has the same 
			meaning as excess skin, like
			ear lobe. 
		
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, I've heard this
			before and it's very interesting.

					DUVALL
				(concentrating)    
			By all means go ahead.
					
					SHARIF 
				(clearing his throat)
			Excuse me, the night air is not
			to good on my allergies. Well as
			I was saying, in the Hebrew
			Genesis, Adam needed a mate so
			one night while he was sleeping
			the lord  took one of his ribs and
			create a mate.
			
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			But not in the Aramaic version!

					SHARIF   
			My friend gets very excited when
			I tell this story. Well anyway,
			in the Aramaic version God takes
			a piece of Adam's ear lobe to 
			create his mate.
						
					DUVALL 
			Any Genetic material will do, it doesn't
			have to be a rib.												
					LENSI
			Exactly, that was very astute of
			of you Mr. Duvall!

	They continue to converse and Sharif draws a picture of
	a cave in the sand.

					SHARIF
				(serious)
			In the Aramaic version god tells Adam 
			to find a bright substance in a cave
			and cover the piece of his ear lobe
			with the jelly substance. He did and 
			the next morning he found a young child
			in his tent..
			
					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)    
			Not full grown? That makes more sense
			he created an image in the form of a 
			child, rather a full grown woman, but
			how did he create a female, instead
			of maybe another man.
				
					SHARIF
				(smiling)
			Very good Dr. Gauthier.
												
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, she was an 
			exquisite female, but she  
			was sterile!

					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)    
			Oh really.
			
					SHARIF 
				(excited)
			Oh yes my good man and more!
			
					LENSI
				(also excited) 
			The Aramaic language was dying out
			and the only scribes were writing
			in Hebrew, so thus ...... the 
			Hebrew version took precedence!
			
					SHARIF
			So they determined the genetic
			material from Adam was a piece
			of an ear lobe. 
									
					DUVALL 
			Cut off his ear lobe and .....
					
					SHARIF
			Grew a child.
						
					SHARIF   
			Of course the child resembled him
			and this pleased Adam.
					DUVALL 
			I'm shocked, totally shocked!
												
	They continue to converse and Sharif draws what appears
	to be Ancient writing.
	
					SHARIF
				(serious)
			This Arabic writing is very close to the
			original Aramaic translation. In the
			dead sea scrolls I saw, the translation
			was that the origination of the Genesis
			substance was located in Africa near a
			very large Volcano and a very large cave 
			measuring one thousand cubits across.
						
					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)    
			Kitum Cave, one thousand feet wide!
				
					SHARIF
				(smiling)
			Very good Dr. Duvall.
												
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, our names will
			go down in history.

					GAUTHIER
				(still concerned)    
			In all of this translation of
			the Aramaic version of Genesis,
			there is a part that doesn't 
			make sense?
			
					SHARIF 
				(startled)
			And what is that my good man?
			
					GAUTHIER
				(smiling)    
			How did Eve ........ bear
			children.
			
					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			Oh really, use your imagination.

					DUVALL
				(understanding)    
			She didn't bear them, they were also
			created from genetic material from 
			her ear lobe, a piece of skin not
			necessary for anything!
										
					GAUTHIER
				(questioning)    
			Well my friend, that sounds 
			plausible, but why didn't
			Adam use Blood?

					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			Check your text books, and you'll 
			will find that genetic material
			is much cleaner and very pure
			when first extracted. Also,
			when a cut is made, anti-bodies 
			start to attack the cut,
			thus the blood is corrupted.
			
					GAUTHIER
				(not concerned)    
			Are you a Micro-Biologist?
				
					SHARIF 
				(coughing)
			Well, for over twenty years I
			taught Micro-Biology in one
			of the best medical schools
			in the Middle East.
					
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, he's very, very
			famous!

					DUVALL
				(concentrating)    
			What do you plan to do with
			the Genesis Spore?
	
					SHARIF 
				(clearing his throat)
			Excuse me, my benefactors have 
			deemed this project classified
			and as much as I would like to
			tell you the vision we have for
			it's use, I can't!
						
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			If we could tell you the plans 
			we have, it would blow your
			mind!
	
					DUVALL 
			Genetic engineering in humans  
			are viewed by many Religions
			as anti-Christ!

					LENSI
			Exactly, that's why we can't 
			tell you the plans for Genesis!

					SHARIF
				(serious)
			The Aramaic version of the dead sea
			scrolls tells of a time when all
			life on this planet well come to
			an end. This passage of revelations 
			was purposely omitted from the 
			Hebrew version.
			
					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)    
			Omitted? Why?
				
					SHARIF
				(smiling)
			My dear Dr. Gauthier, to control
			poor peasants they need to 
			believe in something and they 
			need to know, that a Messiah 
			is coming, not that everything
			will come to an end, in the 
			year 2000!
												
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, the end will
			come in a few short years!

					GAUTHIER
			The Aramaic version of Genesis
			makes sense, but the end in 
			the year two-thousand, I don't
			buy it!
			
					SHARIF 
				(excited)
			That's your view and your entitled 
			to it. If your priest or Rabbi told
			you the end of the world was coming
			in the year two-thousand and two, 
			December 22, would you believe it!
										
					DUVALL 
			Of course not!

					
					SHARIF
			Why?
					
					DUVALL 
			I'm an educated man, and without
			scientific proof, it has no 
			basis!

					SHARIF
				(serious)
			Excellent young Dr. Duvall, you said
			it, No Scientific Proof! Do you
			think the same way, Dr. Gauthier?
			
					GAUTHIER
			Yes I do.
				
					SHARIF
				(smiling)
			The early Rabbis, were as intelligent 
			as any of us, so they left out
			the worlds end in the scrolls and 
			substituted the coming of the Messiah!
												
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, there will be no
			Messiah.

					GAUTHIER
				(still concerned)    
			So where does that leave 
			Christianity?
			
					SHARIF 
				(somber)
			You sound concerned, that all your
			beliefs are now being questioned.
			
					GAUTHIER
				(smiling)    
			Oh please, this revelation by a
			person barely known to me does not
			concern me.
			
					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			Oh really, I'm aware this Aramaic
			revelation does not surprise you,
			but at the very least it should
			concern you!

					DUVALL
			Why?			
	
					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			If you are the fine scientist that
			I think you are, you need to know
			how we will all die in a few short
			years!

					DUVALL
				(Questioning)    
			I want to know!
							
					SHARIF
				(looking at Gauthier)
			Polar Shift!
			
					GAUTHIER
				(not concerned)    
			Oh please?
				
					SHARIF 
			Well, for over ten thousand
			years the axis of the earth
			has started to decay, and now
			the shift will start in a 
			few years.

					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Yes my friends, he's right!

					DUVALL
				(concentrating)    
			What scientific evidence do 
			do you have to support this
			theory?

					SHARIF 
				(clearing his throat)
			We've been using lasers to 
			measure the alignment of the earth
			and the evidence is there!
				
					DUVALL 
			I don't believe it.

					LENSI
			We can prove it!

	Dr. Zucco a man in his early fifties and his assistant Sonia Bell
	a very attractive young lady, are having lunch.
	
					BELL 
			So what did he say?

					ZUCCO
				(disturbed)    
			Dr. Bagu said while was down in 
			the crevasse he witnessed a 
			very profound event.

					BELL 
			He saw god?

					ZUCCO
				(disturbed)    
			He saw what appeared to be a small
			monkey that had fallen on a ledge
			in the crevasse died and was being
			re-born by the Genesis Spore! 
			
					BELL 
			Re-born, you mean this substance
			can not only create life, but also
			heal a person back to life?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Yes!
			
					BELL 
			Please tell me more!

					ZUCCO
				(Somber)    
			When he regained his composure
			he told me he had collected several 
			pounds of the Spore and had placed
			it in his collection bag. I looked
			in the bag and it was a glowing green,
			like an electronic green.
			
					BELL 
			You were wearing a Bio-suit, right?.

					ZUCCO
			Oh yes, when inside Kitum you always 
			wear a bio-suit. Dr. Bagu and I stared in
			awe as we looked inside the bag and 
			were captivated by the glowing substance. 
			That's when I noticed a small cut in his Racal
			suit, apparently cut by a rock when he
			descended deep into the Abyss to 
			collect some of the spores!
			
					BELL 
			Was this spore toxic?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Oh, You have no idea, how toxic!

					BELL 
			Go ahead.

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			We spent hours cleaning and trying 
			to disinfect the wound located near
			his right hip. A green mold was
			starting to grow in the effected area!
			
					BELL 
			If it was growing, and was covering
			his back why didn't you try burning
			it off?

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			I did, I even tried Sulfuric Acid
			but, it kept on growing, it just
			couldn't be stopped.
			
					BELL 
			Please continue..

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			I called my home base and asked for 
			a helicopter to fly him to Nairobi
			for medical care but because of the
			bad weather, it would be days before
			they could pick him up.
			
					BELL 
			So what did you do?



					ZUCCO
			In two days he was completely
			covered and he was in so much 
			pain I used up all the Morphine
			I had in my medical bag. He 
			died two days later. When I
			buried him he was covered from
			head to toe by the green mold!
									
					BELL 
			I don't understand, you said it
			had brought back a monkey, but
			it killed a man!

					ZUCCO
			I wasn't finished, Dr. Bagu
			was down at least two to three
			feet and I covered the top of the
			grave with several large stones.
			
					BELL 
			And. 

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Oh, You won't believe what I am 
			going to tell you!

					BELL 
			His grave was empty?

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			During the night he must have come 
			back to life because he dug his
			way out.
			
					BELL 
			And. 

					ZUCCO
				(misty eyed)    
			Oh, I looked everywhere for my 
			friend but he was gone!
			
					BELL 
			His grave was empty?

					ZUCCO
				(somber)    
			He was in the cave!

					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Ok , I'm ready, lets go!

					DUVALL
				(concentrating)    
			If anything goes wrong, leave us
			because without a suit, you can't
			come down here!
								
	Lensi and Duvall start the descent into the crevasse.
	
					GAUTHIER
			Remember Jean Luc, watch your suit,
			one small cut and your dead!
			
					LENSI
				(smiling)    
			Ok down we go.

	The two young men are seen rappelling down the side of the
	crevasse. They quickly disappear down into the Abyss.

					DUVALL  (V.O.)
				(talking to himself)    
			Shit, this is like going down into
			hell.

	EXT.	EAST SIDE OF AIRSTRIP                    

	A small STOL type aircraft is seen making a landing.
	The pilot gets out and sits on an empty gas can. 
	
					PILOT
				(talking to himself)    
			I'm a little early, I'll sit here 
			and relax for awhile.

					PILOT 
			I just hope the weather holds up.
			
	
	EXT.   TRAIL CONNECTING AIRSTRIP AND KITUM CAVE

	Dr. Sharif is seen making good time on the trails.
	O'Hare and Weiss are also making good time and 
	they run into Sharif.
	
					O'HARE  
				(Looking at Sharif)
			The last time I saw you mate you
			had a gun in my face!

					WEISS   
			Oh, I see you know each other.
				
					O'HARE
				(pointing a gun in his Sharif's face)
			What the blazes are you doing here?

					SHARIF
			Look, I was in the Jordanian 
			army at the time, so I was just 
			following orders.

					WEISS
				(holding his gun on him)
			So answer the man, what are you
			doing here?

					SHARIF
			I'm here to pickup something that
			was ordered by my colleagues.

					O'HARE
			And what was that, elephant dung?

					SHARIF  
			A very lethal spore, that my company
			is using for research.
			
					WEISS   
			Oh, and what is it called?
				
					O'HARE
				(pointing a gun in his face)
			You heard the man!

					SHARIF
			Look, I was commissioned to collect
			samples of the Genesis Spore. My
			friends are waiting for me back at
			Kitum.
			
					WEISS
				(putting his gun down)
			How much are you getting for it?

					SHARIF
			I'm doing it for humanity, not for
			any money.

					O'HARE
			Turn around, were going back to Kitum.
			What the hells the Genesis Spore, Alan!

					WEISS   
			Oh, the MOSSAD told me about it, but 
			I thought the only specimen they had
			was lost somewhere in Switzerland.
				
					O'HARE
			We better have some answers back at
			Kitum or you can kiss your ass good-bye,
			who's waiting for you?

					WEISS
				(putting his gun down)
			Who's waiting for you back at Kitum?

					SHARIF
			Lensi and two Belgian microbiologists.

					WEISS
			If their story isn't the same,
			you're a dead man!
			
					O'HARE
			I'll be merciful and make it nice and 
			quick, one quick cut across your neck
			from my skinning knife and you'll
			feel no more pain.

	INT.	KITUM CAVE

	Lensi, and Duvall are in the crevasse and Gauthier is standing by.
	
					GAUTHIER
			Remember Jean Luc, if something goes 
			wrong I can't pull up both of you at the
			same time, I only have one arm, and I'm 
			in a great deal of pain!
			
					LENSI
				(yelling)    
			Don't worry about it, we'll be ok!
								
	Sharif, O'Hare and Weiss have entered the cave and are 
	approaching Gauthier.

					GAUTHIER
				(startled)
			Oh, you startled me.

					O'HARE
				(pointing to Sharif)
			Do you know this guy?

					GAUTHIER
				(startled)
			It's Dr. Sharif, why?

					WEISS
				(pointing to Sharif)
			He said, you collected some Genesis
			spore for him, is that correct?

					GAUTHIER
			Yes, and I collected some items for
			you also, why, can't I have more
			than one customer at a time?
			Didn't you get your stuff?
				
					WEISS
			Yes, but it was hijacked by the SAS
			so now we need more.

					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)
			I'm so sorry, but we have no more.

					O'HARE
				(pointing to Sharif)
			Do you care if a cut him up?

					GAUTHIER
			Why, what did he do?

					WEISS
				(pointing to Sharif)
			My friend Mr. O'Hare has a long    
			standing beef with him!

					GAUTHIER
			I detest violence. Jean Luc and Lensi
			are down in the crevasse getting
			spore, are you also interested
			in the Genesis spore?
			
					SHARIF
			Look, I have the exclusive rights
			to the spore.
			
					WEISS
				(holding his gun on him)
			So what, we have exclusive rights
			over everything.

					SHARIF
			If something happens to me you will
			have to answer to Sadaam.
			
					O'HARE
			Do I look scared?

					WEISS 
				(Looking at Sharif)  
			We want half of whatever comes out
			of the crevasse.
				
					O'HARE
			Do you have a problem with that?

					SHARIF
			Look, the Genesis Spore has no 
			value to anyone but us.
			
					WEISS
				(pointing his gun)
			Ok, Dr. Sharif, get ready to die!

					SHARIF
			Look, if you let me go I will pay 
			you one-hundred thousand American!

					O'HARE
			Where's the money?

					SHARIF
			It's in a safe in Nairobi.
			
					WEISS
				(putting his gun down)
			Ok, you got yourself a deal.

					SHARIF
			We will leave when we get a good
			supply of spore, agreed?
						
					O'HARE
			If your lying to us about the 
			money your a dead man!

	INT.	KITUM CAVE - CREVASSE

	Lensi, and Duvall have just come up from the crevasse and 
	Gauthier, Sharif, O'Hare and Weiss are standing by.
	
					GAUTHIER
			Ok, Jean Luc, I have the spore, 
			let's go outside.
			
					LENSI
				(yelling)    
			Who are they?
						
	INT.	KITUM CAVE - INSIDE OF ENTRANCE
		
	Duvall and Lensi are removing their Racal suits and Gauthier is
	inspecting the samples through a small glass window in the
	Bio-Carrier.

					GAUTHIER
				(happy)
			Excellent, you have generous
			samples of Genesis.

					O'HARE
				(pointing to Sharif)
			Ok, how hot is this stuff,
			but more important, how 
			much is this worth?

					GAUTHIER
				(contributing)
			To the right person it's worth
			millions!

					WEISS
				(pointing to Sharif)
			I was told by the Israeli Intelligence
			or better known as the Mossad, it has
			the capability to restore life and
			also create life.

					GAUTHIER
			Yes, and more.
				
					O'HARE
			And more, what is the more?

					SHARIF
				(concerned)
			You have a big mouth Claude!
			
					O'HARE
				(pointing to Sharif)
			Shut up or I'll practice my Rhodesian
			assassin hit on you, one in the forehead
			and two in the chest!

					GAUTHIER
			The spore probably has other uses!

					WEISS
				(pointing to a gold 
				 coin in his hand)
			Will it duplicate this?

					GAUTHIER
			No.
			
					SHARIF
			Only living things. 
			
					WEISS
				(holding his gun to 
				 Sharif's head)
  			The only thing that is keeping you
			alive is your knowledge.

					SHARIF
			If something happens to the spore,
			were all dead.
			
					O'HARE
			That Iraqi pig can go straight to 
			hell!

					WEISS   
			We want half, no more and no less!
				
					O'HARE
			Do you have a problem with that
			you Arab pig!

					SHARIF
			Ok, but we divide it back in Nairobi, 
			because I don't trust you!
			
					WEISS
				(putting his gun down)
			Ok, Dr. Sharif, the plane will be here
			tomorrow to pick us up.

					SHARIF
			We have a plane waiting for us right
			now, why do you think I was headed 
			for the Airstrip! 

					O'HARE
			Ok, pack up and let's go!

					SHARIF
			I will carry the spore!
			
					WEISS
				(putting his gun down)
			No way, I will carry the spore.

					SHARIF
			You don't know how to handle toxic 
			agents like this.
						
					O'HARE
			We will risk it!
						
	In one quick motion Jean Luc pulls out his back-up gun
	and aims it at O'Hare and Weiss.

					JEAN LUC
				(SCREAMING)
			Both of you give me your guns
			or I will kill you right now!
	Weiss grabs his gun and points it at Jean Luc but not
	fast enough, he's dropped with three shots, O'Hare goes
	for his gun and Jean Luc also drops him with three shots! 
		
					SHARIF
			Good work Jean Luc, where did you
			learn how to shoot like that!
					
					GAUTHIER
				(happy)
			Oh, my friend was in the French
			Foreign Legion and he's a trained
			killer!

					SHARIF
				(concerned)
			We'll have to bury them, so it
			looks like we'll miss our plane
			but I heard them say their plane
			will be here tomorrow!
	
					GAUTHIER
			We could use the spore on them and 
			give them their miserable lives back?

					SHARIF
			No way, these men are born killers, 
			society is better off without them!
			
					GAUTHIER
				(somber)
			Ok, how do you feel about this Jean
			Luc, Lensi?
			
					LENSI
				(concerned)
			If you killed a Cobra because
			she tried to bite you, would you
			revive her, so she could bite
			you or someone else?
				
					GAUTHIER
			Jean Luc?

					JEAN LUC
			Do you think they would bring
			us back to life after shooting
			us, I don't think so. There dead
			leave them dead, the world is 
			better off without them! They
			are mercenaries, the worst Swine!

					SHARIF
			Gentlemen we're not seeing the 
			forest through the trees. He have
			a much larger issue here. Don't
			you see, we've become gods!
			We now have the power to decide
			between life and death!
			
					GAUTHIER
				(concerned)
			You are absolutely right my dear
			Dr. Sharif, we have become gods
			and I don't know if we're 
			really worthy of this gift to
			dispense it properly. I don't
			think we as men of science can
			say, let them die, they're not
			good enough to live on this 
			earth, I think we have a very
			strong moral and religious
			issue here!
			
					SHARIF
				(concerned)
			Listen to him boys, he's right
			we're men of science, we must
			do whatever we can to restore their 
			lives. What if they were dying of
			the fever would we give them anti-
			biotic or would we let them die?
			
					GAUTHIER
			We could use the spore on them when
			we get ready to leave and leave them 
			here with their god, to recover or
			die!

					SHARIF
			I agree, as men of science we must
			try to bring them back.
			
					GAUTHIER
				(somber)
			Ok, how do you feel about this Jean
			Luc, Lensi?
			
					LENSI
			I agree, lets do it!
				
					JEAN LUC
			Fine with me, I just hope they
			don't come after me later!
