Commentary for June 26, 2013:

No, that's not a typo, Kochanski did say "Gods" - plural - "save the Confederate States of Mars". You see, over three centuries of independence from Earth has led to the development of new religions on Mars and the big monotheistic religions of Earth at this time (analogous to Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc.) are not the dominant religions on Mars. Instead, most religious Martians fall into some branch of Neo-Classicalism, which worships modernised ideas of the Olympian gods, while borrowing heavily from the salvation narrative of Earth's Christianity. Some denominations see each of the gods as separate entities, as in antiquity, but most see them either as avatars of the one god or separate entities derived from a single prime mover or creator god. Neo-Classicalism has a presence on Earth and the other inhabited worlds of the Terran System, but it is most prominent on Mars and the Jovian moons, which were colonies of Mars.

Also, I acknowledge that it is kind of bad of me to be directing readers to pages of Eon's World 1.0 that cannot yet be read, since they're not currently online. However, that won't always be the case, so I put that in there in anticipation of the entire run of Eon's World 1.0 being back online eventually. I'd get through it a lot faster if not for the commentaries I insist on writing...
