  1. Anyone else what Adam is doing with that deer? And Eve seems pretty into that squirrel…

    Up until now the Garthim/Skeksis scenes really got to me, but I have to admit, after seeing THOSE puppets, I must admit they may have had something:

  2. @LadyMitris: I dispute this. What do you think is the animating force? See, with Zombies the soul remains and the body dies, that’s how it works. All that other stuff is just vitalist hate speech.

    @MiddleMan: It’s not an apocalypse, it’s a natural process. Inside every living person is a dead one waiting to get out.

  3. Everytime. Every fucking time. “Adam and Eve ate the fruit of tree of the knowledge of good and evil” That made god made because he told them not to. Up until that point Adam and Eve were like innocent children and didn’t know the difference between right and wrong. So they didn’t know that eating the fruit was wrong because they didn’t have a concept of wrong. But since they did wrong they have to die. The only way to appease the angry god was with the sweet, sweet blood of young and innocent animals. the more blood the better. god loves blood. Lots and lots of blood. MMMM, yummy delicous blood. Give me blood for I am hungry. BLood, blood, blood, blood.

    Yep that makes sense.

  4. If my 13 years of Catholic schooling serves me well, I recall that it was “The Serpent” in the garden, not Satan.

    And Satan doesn’t appear in the Bible until the Book of Job (end of the OT) and even then he’s not evil incarnate but sort of prosecuting DA.

    These people don’t even understand their own religion

  5. @russellsugden: Very true, I always wondered why if Satan took the form of a serpent and tempted Eve, why did God blame the rest of the serpents? (Making them crawl on the belly, eat dust and all that stuff about striking of ankles and heads.)

    Granted I have the same general question about Adam & Eve’s sin being transmitted to us by accident of birth…

  6. @russellsugden: Good point on the Satan bit. It’s just a talking snake…

    And why do Adam and Eve look like western Europeans instead of looking Middle Eastern? And I thought Cain should’ve been yelling “By the power of Grayskull!” there after he bashed Abel’s head in…

  7. The whole vulcan satan with nudist eve thing, it’s just strangely hot. “Yeah, baby I am just one giant snake, and I am here to give you carnal knowledge. Yeah, put it in your mouth, oh yeah.”

  8. @MiddleMan: I just remembered a sermon I heard in high school. I guess this would have been in 87 or 88. The gist of the sermon was

    “Don’t let your kids be educated and whatever you do don’t let them go to college. Education is bad because educated people stop believing in god.”
