--->Liked that one did ya? I did too....

However, I'd say that the priest can no longer (not that they would DARE
to) seperate the 'pressing the on button' from the rituals. A bit like
somewhere amongst the chanting and waving the incense, you stick the
flour into the bowl, add eggs etc etc. Is it the pray to the Great Oven
or the baking powder that makes the cake rise? You don't know, and
you're as unlikely to remove the prayer from the ceremony (and incur the
Great Cook's wrath) as you are to omit the flour.

I'm sure the Eldar would find the Mon-ki behaviour VERY amusing...

--->I do agree on this. the religious aspects have become so interwoven
with the mechanical as to be inseperable at this point. To further our
new founded cult of Yeast, it is the prayer that gives the baking powder
its power to fluff up that loaf. Just as in the Cult Mechanicus, it is
the prayers that give the various elements their powers to operate, be it
oil, nuclear material, or the explosives in a shell. really, the Cult
Mechanicus isn't that far off from how we do things today. How many
people out there have issued a prayer while doing some sort of mechanical
work on a car or something? Like when you're praying it's just the
voltage regulator and not the whole alternator.....
