New Lost theory
My co-worker, Shawn, has a theory about Lost that I want to share. He thinks that Richard is the captain of the Black Rock pirate ship. Think about it, he never ages, he was already on the island before Dharma showed up, he would have the money to finance Ben (treasure from the pirate days) and he would want to protect the island because he has benefited from its "healing" powers for the last four centuries. Also, he needs someone from Dharma (Ben) on his side so that he can benefit from the Dharma technology, communication and transportation systems. That's also why Widmore is bidding on the Black Rock painting and journal: not because he already knows of a connection with the island, but because he wants to find the shipwrecked Black Rock and its lost treasure. Let me know what you think.
