"Schechem raped Dinah then proposed marriage. Dinah's brothers said they'd agree if all Schechem's men were circumcised. They agreed, were attacked and killed while recovering."

“The only breed of dog named in the bible is the Greyhound.”


"Genesis 6:4 about Nephilim being sons of God, fathers of heroes, resonates with me, also due to my fondness for Diablo."


"The story of Lot involves God warning him about an incoming disaster, his wife turning into salt, and his daughters' incest with him (Genesis 19:31-32). Most didn't die, just one city."
