I'd rather be Mary Magdeline; Maggie de Line' would be my nom de play.

You know, I'm getting a little scared, here. Are we creating a new
religion on this list, or what? How long before FoRK incorporates as
its own not-for-profit faith organization? Rohit as the demiurge. Adam
as... well, that's obvious. Tom Whore as John the Baptist. Eugene
Leitl as... hmmm... Joshua. Geege as Rebekah? JoeBar as...? Anyone
care to take a crack at casting?

If we're going to do this, can I reincarnate my persona from the
original TinyHELL and be our Lucifer equivalent? Not to be confused
with Satan; Lucifer is the name of the first of the fallen, while Satan
(= Shaitan) seems to be more of a title to be given to "the Adversary"
at any point in time, which role seems to have been played by various
entites if you follow all your apocryphal writings. If not that, then
I'll duke it out with Tom for the John the Baptist role and try my hand
at a Microsoft-esque Revelations... (though to be honest, Tom writes
the part better! :-)


No, really, I'm kidding.
