Yes, definitely make this into threads. I would've missed the religious stuff if Ari hadn't mentioned it, and...well, I see you took my complaining about overly generic con-religious very much
to heart. My favorite is the God-Makers, which seem like the logical conclusion of the world in Terry Pratchett's Small Gods
(even though they violate the Great God OM's final commandment "Thou shalt not subject thy God to market forces").
I'd like to see the Zwerisi (world is a simulation) meet up wit the Favored (raised in a simulation) and see what happens - I'm guessing the Favored consider them abominations and try to kill them, but Harvey has surprised me more than once.
More orthodox sects (such as Lantern Bright, Perfect Regularity, and Revelation Dawn) are also found
These would also make good names for ponies!
