They eat people, like you. Or maybe not, as you seem to be lacking in intelligence.

Thus proving my point on why the Flood wouldn't 'consume' you.

They began by selectively choosing to eat smart people, and not dumb people, much like yourself. Thus following natural selection. According to Charles Darwin "On the originas of species" they grow stronger by selectively choosing those that are smarter.

The flood infests "smart" living creatures, because they need a host. The flood is a parasite.

The don't "consume" thing. They simple, infected people.

The flood came from galaxy far away. Like Gamma said. The flood, declare war against Forerunnners. The dragged out for many years. Til, the Forerunner run out resource or I think they did. After using all recourse as possible, fearing the flood would take galaxy. They active Halo, if any flood survived the Monitor, and sentinel were to thing under control.

Step 1: go to google

Step 2: in the Google search field type Halo Wiki

Step 3: hit the Halo wiki link

Step 4: in the wiki search field type flood

Step 5: read the **** article

Good job, you have now successfully learned something without having to bother others. By using this method you can not only learn, but you can also be less bothersome.

...........Have you ever tried editing a wiki? They are the most unintuitive editing tools I have seen in my life. The only people who edit wikis are people who care about the subject, doubly so for specific wikis. Also, for general information on the fly any wiki gives you decent information.

Oh, and by the way, here is some reading that might make you realize wikis aren't the root of all misinformation.

I also feel the need at this point to mention that you criticizing my advice when you link to a blog which is just as editable if not easier to edit then any wiki.

Looks like your "ultimate source of knowledge" isn't so accurate either. It isn't actual fact, it's merely what the author concluded from the events of the games, which is basically what happens in wikis as well.

Ascendant Justice was written by one person and cannot be edited by the public, so I don't know where you got that from.

It is an interpretation, true, but it is an accurate one.

Wikis can be edited by ANYONE. Meaning, if someone sees something they THINK is wrong, they will edit it so that it is right to them, even if it's completely false. For example, if I believed that Sergeant Forge was the Master Chief and had based that belief on the fact thet they share the name "John", I could go edit it into a wiki article on both characters, and anyone with minimal knowledge of the subjects would believe it, and tell others.

Ascendant Justice was based on a careful examination of every detail of Halo's canon. I have read most of the articals there, and I trust them more than some stupid wiki.

However, since you're wrong, people can CORRECT you in a wiki. Thus, a bigger expansion of knowledge. However, if the Ascendant Justice author thought that was true, and he put that down, no one can fix it for him, and therefore, it'll stay wrong. In a wiki, there are multiple factors to be considered. Many people who actually write the articles in the wikis cite sources, and these sources are usually canon.

There is also a more diverse audience, and groups of experts. Some people analyze books and the games, and write certain parts of the articles, mainly the factual portions. Some people are gamers, who randomly find certain things. Those people put things down in "Trivia". Even more people are more concentrated on gameplay, and put down gameplay tips. Halopedia is much more than an analytical study of the Halo games. It is a community, much like our own.

This is what ALL of Ascendant Justice is, and that's my point.

However, in wikis, the key word is "SOME people", which refers to a group of experts. Groups of people are usually more correct than a single author. If the Ascendant Justice author (I'm going to call him "The Author" for brevity) is wrong, no one will correct him. If one expert is wrong, another one can correct him. If one person deliberately tries to sabotage the article, someone can fix it.

I did try editing Halopedia once, to correct an error, and the next day I went back and it was the same as before, and I have not bothered with it since.

A person can be smart.

People, on the other hand, are stupid.

On the other hand, one person can be mentally ill, while the chances of a group of people all being mentally ill is very little.

No, the people at bungie studios wanted to make a crazy twist in the halo stroyline, so they made an all consuming parasitic race that infects intelegent organisms(not jenkins) in their underground lair were they plot world domination and ways to implement the number 7 into everything.

duh...

The Flood are an extra-galactic alien race that infects other sentient races to live, they use their hosts to move around and subsequently get more hosts by attacking other species.
They invaded the Galaxy 100,000 yeas ago and got into a thousand year long war with the Forerunners who fought in a long stalemate for many years. The Flood created a Gravemind, an intelligent Flood form to lead them and they attacked the main Forerunner worlds.
The Forerunners, after exhausting every other option opted to commit mass suicide on themselves and to kill every organism with enough mass to sustain the Flood and so they activated weapons of mass destruction (Halos). However they'd forgotten that they'd left Flood in stasis on some of them, like leaving the gas on.

If they'd of completely conquered the Galaxy, they'd just move on to another. It is implied that they probably control other Galaxies completely but failed to conquer the Milky Way because of the humans and the Covenant.

Uh, excuse me?I don't know about the Covenant but 100.000 years ago humans weren't in a state to defend themselves...Do you mean Forerunners didn't want to conquer the Milk Way or they just couldn't?Oh and, Covenant are originated in our galaxy?

Also, is the story of Precursors ever revealed?I have this theory that they evolved so much they just left their bodies and wandered the universe as spirits, like the race who created monoliths in A Space Oddysee: 2001.Since Forerunners' records state that Precursors were highly evolved and they believed Precursors were even able to accelerate other race's evolution.(Again, like in A Space Oddysee: 2001.)

(I only played Halo:CE.I'm planning to download 2 vista when I get home a few days later.)
