Author (Ron Edwards) blurb:
In the fall of 2010, I conformed to a common stereotype about men in their mid-40s and apparently became obsessed with matters of religion. Its roots lie in my work on Shahida but that’s all politics and history, very little to do with specific religious content. Still, I did a lot of reading of and about Judaic, Christian, and Muslim texts, and I suppose it’s not too surprising that a lot of stuff went into the dark well at the bottom of my head and fermented.
So, long story short, I wrote four alpha game drafts, which I strongly suspect are totally not suitable for presentation or discussion on the internet. Which ridiculously, I’m doing anyway right now.
None of them are about religious belief, which as I see it, is a huge non-issue which tends to blot out all the relevant issues about religion through its very non-ness. It’s the opposite of the elephant in the room that no one will talk about; instead, it’s the elephant which is not in the room but which no one will shut up about.
