Armageddon Waiters theory
The Others are a group of Armageddon Waiters, people who had set up bunkers / communities during the Cold War on these remote islands to await nuclear armageddon, and to survive it if possible. Unrelated to them, the Hanso Foundation / Dharma Initiative had also set up shop on these islands to conduct their experiments which revolve around the strength of Good and Evil, namely which of these is stronger in people. The Dharma scientists, after stumbling upon the Armageddon Waiters, decided to do some experiments on them, but these got out of control and the subjects eventually revolted and took everything over. The nature of the Dharma experiments involved harnessing negative psychic energy from people, which is what the Monster is, and which is why the Others seem so aggressive. This opened up some latent psychic powers in some of them which allow them to prophesy and manipulate minds to some extent.

That would explain, somewhat, the interest that the Others have in Locke and Walt. Could they have taken the Childern and those on the List (Locke was on the list according to Ben when he was Henry Gail) because they may have had 'special' abilities?

If a group on this island is awaiting armagedon, I think it would make more sense that it is the Dharma group and not the others. The Dharma group built the hatches/bunkers that would have been used to hide from the nuclear winter and also supplied all of the supplise in there. Also, the numbers are the Valenzetti equation for calculating the end of the world, if anyone is awaiting armagedon it would be the group that these numbers are associated with and that's the Dharma initiative as they use it frquently.
