Sorry for stupid question, but why was Eridan Religion² during the game? Like, he was ranting about fake miracles one second, then holy hellfire the very next. Then he killed the witch and the vampire. What the heck were those angels doing to him?

“‘Your woraciousness, fellow-critters, I don’t blame ye so much for; dat is natur, and can’t be helped; but to gobern dat wicked natur, dat is de pint. You is sharks, sartin; but if you gobern de shark in you, why den you be angel; for all angel is not'ing more dan de shark well goberned.’”

The metaphor of the flock as a group of hungry sharks is indicative of an old statement on religion: feed the stomachs, then the souls. Priest’s preaching to them (which is about taming the greedy nature in feeding of oneself as the sharks are devouring far too voraciously) largely goes unheeded, basically because the sharks are dumb beasts

who can’t understand what he’s saying; they are also too busy feeding to pay attention to much else.

So yeah, what were the angels doing to Eridan? Teaching him what they knew best:

feed the stomach

then the soul.

PLEASE DONT SCROLL PAST THIS

gobernment replied to your post: i dont have enough friends who like ff13. talk to…

was ff13-2 any good. i’m so sad i didn’t get to play i really liked ff13

it was kind of shit. fun to play, but the story was weak as heck. if you really liked ff13 you should play it just because it’s an extension of the fun gameplay and there’s enough remnants of the good storyline from the last game to keep it in the green for me. i love ff13-2 still although it is rather dull

PROBLEMS WITH THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM
  • firstable, HOMEWORK! homework is stupid because when you have a job in the real world they dont require you to work from home so why would school do that. they make us do teachers jobs on our own for free. the gobernment should PAY US am i right folks
  • teacher. lol stupid teachers. they yell at you for making jokes in class but humor is a sign of intelligence even though i stole the joke from family guy last night
  • tumblr is blocked in class
  • white girls lol. look at them with their uggs and starbucks lol. fuck north face jackets. leggings aren’t pants. they’re all so stupid lmao. their stupid is rubbing off on me
  • boys. boys are dumb because they wear deodorant that smells weird and date the white girls instead of me
  • HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT EACH TEACHER TEACHES ONE SUBJECT AND EXPECTS YOU TO LEARN FIVE? yeah i saw a tumblr post about that and it’s so right, right?
  • have you ever heard another brick in the wall pt 2 by pink floyd? its about how teachers suck and education is crumbling and if you want to learn more about how school is bad you should listen to it. somebody once tried to tell me that the song was part of a story and actually has nothing to do with criticizing education but if thats tru then why do they say “we dont need no education?” think about it
