> 1 - Evangelion has no religious meaning.
Are you referring to Kazuya Tsurumaki at Otakon 2001? Citation please.
> 2 - You *do*? You're an expert in psychology, science, cultural concepts?
No. I'm not. I don't claim to be. YOU are the one claiming to be the
one who is going to review and decide upon the truth and validity of what
has been written on Evangelion. Being extremely knowledgeable of the show
and all of the source material it draws upon would be necessary to do what

you'll only manage to sway the ignorant and weak minded. I hope you like
being surrounded by flunkies.

"Oh, sure, you just take off your little mask and show us all who you
really are. Hmm?"
> "The ReVolution" is tossing out the old methodology of "we're free to

"So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause."
> Oh you misunderstand; when I say "we" I mean the boys and girls that

If you're referring to the handful of people from YouTube you've got under
your thumb, I'm not very impressed. They're not the brightest crayons in
