The best stupid pun ever.

But I don’t want to stop there. There a few deeper and more mysterious applications of this. The Lamb slain at the foundation of the world as a type of evolution.

That said, another, biologically more, philosophically less cf. colonials: more* ambitious take on the Nth Men story.
(Also he has thought out giant spiders :O :O :O||||~)

*2014-08-21 EDIT: The more I think about it, the more I think Bogleech is right. This is better in every way: humane where MAM was profoundly misanthropic, humble where F&LM was arrogant and certain, hopeful even in death where MAM and F&LM are ambivalent. This is what science fiction ought to be.

But on the theological, it remains very interesting to see the devouring and devoured god of the Aztecs, and the continually birthing and dying man of Rabelaisian popular-festive humanism, Xted. My closest contact with that Christianized doctrine would be in GW's Book of the New Sun.

I usually feel a certain discordance between the conception of the Absolute as unchangeable, like in "always-slain", and its presentation as an unfolding. (Not that [it] and [revelation-of-it] have to abide by similar rules, but some sleight of hand may be suspected.) It devalues Act (hence Time, etc) to establish that that cross did not change [not-slain] into [slain]; afterwards claiming the world of infinite changes to be somehow analogous to this unchanging thing...

It does have a certain ring to it though, the formulation "unchanging but not changeless"?

By the way, the ending filibuster of AT seems to run against the grain of living by the Christ Story as PPaul gently offers.

I know this

if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.
