It does seem that all theories are pretty much the same, in essence, but only differ on fine points.
Sylvari theories deal with them existing prior.
Ancient Dragon theories deal with them being either predecessors of the gods, or their arch rivals. They just MUST deal with the gods on some level with theories. Can't be just powerful beings.
There are more, but they shouldn't need to be mentioned. I personally dislike all the "common ground" in theories, as those are usually the most far-fetched portions of the theories. Only two come to mind that are not far-fetched, that being the Ancient Dragon common ground mentioned above and Abaddon returning after NF as a weakened version (like Dhuum did).
