    Nothing like brochures…
    Happy Hunting Grounds: spend eternity as a subsistence hunter, hunting and being hunted.
    Nirvana: Get lit up by the light that drains your brains to nothing.
    Stovopipe: Where the fools with the bad haircuts, cuir boilli knickerbockers, and knobby foreheads duke it out for eternity in a series of idiotic battles much as they did while alive.
    Hades: Where all the Orpheos go to lose those Mediterranean tans. Your guide Persephone will show you all the holes where the skeletons are buried…

    I just want to go where I can get a really good night’s sleep, and you don’t want to know what will happen to that idiot angel who blows a trumpet in my ear…

    Is there any significance of the fact that Charon is an adult?

    Or Heaven… where members of each faith are absolutely convinced that they’ll the only ones there.

    @The Life I Draw Upon

    Good question, and one I hadn’t thought of before. They’re all supposed to be students, so I would think there would be adults. I think of the Cat Muse as an adult. Maybe the adults are used on an arc-by-arc basis?

    And only one will be proven correct. Everything else in our experience is either true or false or a combination thereof. A proton is not a neutron, energy exists or it doesn’t, a cat is not a dog, etc.
    Things work or they don’t. It wasn’t until recent years that religions were not judged on their merits. People got lazy, wanting to slop along. So, they must all be equal, right, because we won’t be honest on what each does? The current love affair with Islam is an example of such intellectual laziness. All “equal” despite invading more than 100 countries and slaughtering their populations, sparking the Crusades and a host of other wars in trying to stop them. Making a sacrament of killing “the people of the book”. Essentially teaching the reverse of Christianity and Judaism, with Allah having the characteristics of Satan and hundreds of verses in the Q’uran requiring hate, murder, raiding, maiming, enslavement of women, and other nastiness. The current genocidal campaigns are in a belt across central africa. But “all religions are equal” goes the modern “wisdom”.
    It’s been PC of late to ignore of what the peoples from the Valley of Mexico south used to do to each to other, reaching a level of barbarism that even the Thugs of India or the Amorites didn’t equal. It’s been PC of late to claim the Thugs themselves didn’t exist, despite the historical record and the current worship of Kali in brutal but less murderous ways. The piercing fad of the1990s is indirectly derived from Kali worship, for example. India had to crack down on the bigger piercing practices of Kali worship because of the number of deaths. That concern for humans itself does not derive from Hinduism, but instead is an imported idea from Christians. The idea of karma, for example, meant that people wouldn’t help other people because the person in trouble was working off his/her bad karma and thus you were hurting that person by helping them. At the same time Hinduism has the concepts of greater and lesser good (much as socialism does), rather than good and evil, which is internally contradicted by the idea of bad karma.
    Some religions don’t do what they know they should do. How many Christians don’t do the good they know they are supposed to? Indeed, the Bible sets and impossible standard for good, which is why people need a Savior, Jesus Christ. If nothing else, one doesn’t see people get their life together by adopting secular humanism or animism. Only one religion I’ve ever seen actually does that, which argues for it being different.
    Then you have people using religion as an excuse. It was not God nor the Bible that had the Catholic church do military campaigns against Hussites, Hugenots, etc., to put it mildly. It was in spite of God and the Bible.

    Actually, I’ve seen people from other religions with their lives very well ordered. And a lot of us know at least one of them: Gandhi. Another one, from Catholic church: Mother Theresa. And I failed to recall right now the name of an hinduist woman, who has instituted a big work of charity and helping of others and between people, while herself dedicates to talk, embrace and comfort all the visitors who reach to her. And I’m not a believer of any of those religions.

    And if you took some (a lot) of the statements of the Bible, without knowing their context and a broader understanding of the whole teachings of Christianism, you can end with similar conclusions about Christianity that you bestow upon other faiths. Statements like:

    34 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth. I came not to send peace, but a sword.
    35 For I am come to ‘set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.’

    Moses ordering the killing of thousands of children and women, and the slavery as forced concubines of young virgins:

    15 And Moses said unto them, “Have ye saved all the women alive?
    16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord.
    17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who hath known a man by lying with him.
    18 But all the women children, who have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

    And were not only Catholics among Christianity who commited killings and injustice to other peoples. A lot of the European colonialists in Africa were exploiting and slavering the people living there, justifiyng it on religiosos basis. Same happened with slavery in United States: ministers from Methodists, Baptists and several other churches said slavery was sanctified, even ordered, by God. Good thing was that a lot others pertaining to these or others churches condemned slavery. It was, as is always, a matter of what really yo do have at your core: real charity and compassion, or intolerance and arrogance.

    You do realize that prior to the Crusades, both Christians and Jews were permitted to worship openly in Islamic countries.
    The same could not be said for Jews in Christian Europe. In fact, many Crusaders, on their way to the Holy Land, stopped to persecute Jews.(Known as the Baltic Crusades.)
    If you want a different perspective on the islamic Holy wars, read God’s Crucible by David Levering Lewis. It describes the spread of Islam as a largely peaceful undertaking, later distorted by fanatics on both sides.

    Boody may need a guidebook. There may be too many choices, though I’m sure Karen (sic) will accommodate….
