It is this very readiness to bend to the outside world with ardent forgetfulness and extremely convenient revelation, all the while claiming the constancy of divine authorship and authority, that makes the whole arrangement seem less divine than human, all too human. It looks like an alternate primate dominance hierarchy set up by males who felt they could never get the status they deserved in their native group, and perpetuated by those now with status in that new arrangement and by the human preference for even a slip-shod narrative learned from birth over none.

At least the Subgeniuses admit that they make it all up as needed.
