The darkest chapter of the Black Panther mythos continues as Wakanda crumbles from within. Enter: The Midnight Angels! Two mysterious women leading the citizen revolt against the current regime of Wakanda, challenging not only T’Challa’s politics but also his resolve. But will their rage provide more for the people than the royal family has thus far? Written by MacArthur Genius and National Book Award winner TA-NEHISI COATES (Between the World and Me) and illustrated by living legend BRIAN STELFREEZE!

I have a few questions regarding AC’s mythos, particularly in regards to the Judeo-Christian faith:

1. If Black Flag and AC games afterwards introduced the concept of “Sages”, what’s so impossible about someone with the biblical description and abilities of Jesus Christ actually existing?

2. How on earth did the First Civilization evolve to have triple-helix DNA when there is no evidence of triple-helix DNA occurring naturally?

3. Why are the FC not the “Nephilim” referred to in Genesis 6? If they were really the beings in Numbers 13, then how the hell did Joshua and his people manage to defeat them in Joshua 11? They almost certainly would have had better technology and weaponry than the Israelites, right?

Food for thought.

Mytho meme || 7 archangels - Chamuel

Chamuel (also known as Kamael) means “One who seeks God.” Other spellings include Camiel and Samael.  Archangel Chamuel is known as the angel of peaceful relationships. People sometimes ask for Chamuel’s help to: discover more about God’s unconditional love, find inner peace, resolve conflicts with others, forgive people who have hurt or offended them, find and nurture romantic love, and reach out to serve people in turmoil who need help to find peace.

There are antlers sprouting like wings from her shoulders || Her arms have become cypress limb, twining vine and fragile leaf ||Moonlight mythos dapples her flanks when she runs on bare, pale feet || Watch her float, carried on an arrow's shaft || Watch her fly, soaring with nightingales and a boy carrying the sun cloaked behind him - pgtips (!!!)

I never believed in Santa Claus. For that matter, I never believed in the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, or any of the rest.

My parents didn’t like the deception of the Santa Claus mythos and similar holiday traditions, especially in regards to the manipulation tactics that come with “Be good or Santa might leave you coal on Christmas!” so I grew up without it. For as long as I can remember, I knew it was just make-believe and adults in costumes.

A lot of folks seem oddly sad when I tell them this, which I find vaguely amusing given how much I pitied my peers as a child for being deceived. (I was on strict orders not to tell other kids that it was fake.) My amusement doesn’t last long, though, as they seem to assume that my experience was equivalent to losing the magic of Christmas; to them, it’s as if I’ve been deprived of a proper childhood with wonder and awe.

But that’s like saying that Disneyland loses its magic when you know that the characters around the park are only actors. We can read stories and cosplay characters and roleplay without losing the fun just because it’s not real.

My sisters and I still went to the mall to take photos with “Santa.” We still opened gifts under the tree, even if we were under no illusions over where they came from, and my mom put chocolate coins in our stockings every year. We left teeth under our pillows and were amazed that our parents were so sneaky that they could swap a tooth with a quarter in the night without waking us. We dyed eggs in pastels, then went on hunts for hidden plastic eggs.

Sure, my experience was different, but do you really think that means I couldn’t have fun with it? Not only did I still get to sit on Santa’s lap and go on Easter egg hunts, but I was in on the secret. I got to play along on a great nationwide game of Let’s Pretend.

Traditions and myths don’t lose their power just because you know they’re made-up.

“You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
Tell ‘em that God’s gonna cut 'em down”
