Faith of our Fathers

Although lacking Pillars of Eternity's more daring take on religion, I did enjoy Torment:Tides of Numenera's slight jabs at faith. Reminds me of the Life of Brian. Very sandal-and-gourd.
Basically, wherever you go in this game, whatever the topic of conversation, seems there's always some group or another of nutjobs who've built some primitive cargo cult around it: you, The Changing God, a big graveyard, an all-devouring monstrosity, a... rock... you name it, some delusional loon's out there praying to it. Maybe the credit goes to TToN's writers or maybe this is just an intrinsic feature of the Numenera setting's Clarkian take on sufficiently advanced technology. It's like a corollary to Rule 34: if it exists there is porn of it - and a mumbling cabal of mouthbreathers who think it rules the multiverse.

Where was I going with this?
Oh yeah.
Mosques aren't special.
