There are many reasons why the god mythos prevails, not least of which is indoctrination, but a very important factor is that we all have people we've lost, many of whom have left us with things unspoken, loose ends we wish we could tie up. Or worse, our life-partner or child is lost to us before it was right for them to go,

- the invalid will somehow be granted a sportsmans strength.
- those whom have broken the social conventions (murderer/rapists etc.) will be properly punished for the hurt they've caused.

ARE YOU STRONG ENOUGH?
Have you the balls to stand against the tide of unfounded wishes?
Or, will you take refuge in the houses of the weak and powerless?
