There were about a hundred other pics from the same conspiracy nut, some looking like Imperial ships, some not.

Actually, we totally can feed not only ourselves, but possibly another world if we focused on it.

The reason people go hungry is because all that food is unevenly distributed. It doesn't matter than the US can sustainably produce 20x the amount of food it needs, if that extra food can't be shipped and distributed to all those Ethiopians or North Koreans. Corn rots, milk spoils, meats need refrigeration.

Even then, these poor areas can likely sustain themselves if they weren't constantly ravaged by war, genocide, and crazy dictators.

Thats not true what we have in abundance is food, water and space. We just suck huge amounts of cocks managing those resources. Just walk behind buffets and see how much food is toss away.

There was a little math saying that entire earth populations could live in Texas in 4 story high buildings. If I recall it was using an US middle class house and a family of 4. The thing is that we would still have space left for roads, hospitals and all that stuff in a modern city.

Both of us were created by the Precursors, but the Forerunners were the ones to take up their Mantle of the protection of life.

Despite all the hate Halo gets, it was rather well made fluff wise and story wise for a shooter.

Like the reason why the Covent is at wars to with the humans is due to the Prophets figuring out that the Humans where the direct descendant to their gods and if the rest of the aliens find out all their power in the Covent would be gone.

Technically, we're not their gods. The Forerunners are. Genetically, we're similar to them, and one of the last actions they did before killing everything in the galaxy after evacuating everything they could was pass on the Mantle to us. That's why we can use their technology so well. We're literally their Reclaimers, the ones they thought best to carry on the Mantle.

Bungie has always been good with stories. Even Marathon had a deep story, if you took the time to look. Hell, it's better than many major movie franchises story wise. It will be interesting to see how 343 Industries does when it comes to the story. Here's hoping they don't fuck that up.

Because we might have Chaos guys working here too.

For all we know there could be some Chaos cell and Inquisition cell working on Earth, everyone trying to pull strings.

Regarding a stance on Earth religions they would be ok, maybe change Jew--Muslim--Christian god would be the easier thing to adapt they already have a single big god.

While things such as wicca would require more work but they could be just cults that focus in a particular aspect of the Emperor.

The Imperial Creed is rather lax.

Catholics politicked pagan cults and faiths into worship by co-opting religious figures (the Holy Mother ~= the pagan Feminine) and holy days. the saints also do the job of extending the pantheon over specialist gods/goddesses

Hinduism and Buhdism fit the Emperor as acended being and the cycles of torturous living escaped only by following one's dharma and achieving nirvana at the end of a long line of abuse from your fellow men and monsters while turning your hand to aid your fellow man

basically, almost every religion on Earth can be co-opt by the Imperial Ecclesiarchy, except maybe Oberonian/Leveyan Satanism which is self-worship and the coordinated attack upon established dogmas in their weakest points.

Close, humanity rose during quickly during forerunner time and had started reasherching percursor technology due to reaching near forerunner tech levels. We were allied with the prophets at the time, and on friendly terms with the forerunner, we even taught the forerunner how to make A.Is, which bit them in the as latter. We were actually winning in our fight against the flood up until the forerunner got it into there head that the only way to say the galaxy was to nuke all intelligent life so they bombed every race back to the stone age and activated the halo arrays. They failed and we had to start back at square one.

If we were taken back into the Imperium... what happens to all our scientists? I understand the Imperium does still develop technology and such very slowly, but for the most part just does what tradition says without understanding why.

If they landed here there would be engineers and assorted other nerds trying to work the whys and wherefores of their tech right away. So what happens when a new world has people who are too inquisitive about technology?

Yes, but working within the Imperial machine or at least towards its mission statement is a meta-purpose I can get behind, sure the intent has been debauched into pointless endeavors by the power-hungry, but there are threats to be beaten and battles to be had

Or you could just, you know, start praising Space Jesus. It gets you a lot of cred in the Imperium if you sound like you mean it. If you sounded like you meant it *enough*, they might even, like, make you one of the new leaders of the planet or something.

Anyway I certainly wouldn't suggest arguing with or fighting them, which both are pretty equally certain to get your ass burninated.

Still wrong. The precursors made the flood to test who would be their "children" we passed. We shortly afterwards attacked the forerunner, but weakened by our fight with the flood, they nuked us to the stone age (literally). We then destroyed the cure to the flood out of spite.

And sleep. Remember that part.

You work no more than 40 hours a week, most likely. The average imperial works more in *two days* than you do in *five days*.

At least the unemployment crisis would be over.

...

I sorta miss my Army days and regretted the fact that I never felt like we were facing a credible threat. Joining the Imperial Guard might be "cool" in that you probably don't get worked to death (its not practical to do so to soldiers) and I might get to face a credible threat.

Plus not all IG units are pure cannon fodder, some IG are put into APCs and given melta guns.

But the most likely result of your planet joining the Imperium would be you finding out that your good days in your new life are worse than the bad days of your old life.
