This still rattling on?
I have no problem with people using ancient stories to bounce off their sense of morality, but to revise both science and history in order to make it all relevant?
Look, I know a bloke who learned Klingon and goes to Star Trek conventions, even flying out to The States and Japan for them. Good for him, and we all need a hobby. BUT.. if he was in the pub telling me that the borg exists and that Spock existed (will exist?) then I would smile, sup up and say "Is that the time?"
Luckily, he hasn't got that far yet. Give him time....
Perhaps the same time that any fad needs to become a superstition and then received by those for whom it is useful. Control the masses? Superstition, every time mate, every single time. The King doesn't understand me but my imaginary friend does. We all need a crutch eh?
