I’m not sure what the best thing about this picture is. Is it Jesus being an idle wastrel? Jesus being deceptive? Jesus being a craven? I just can’t decide.

I like the fuel, might need a bit of tweaking to work properly. Though it doesnt ever seem to be an issue for the United States, having all of my ships deployed at once doesnt impact it at all.

I like the new set up for fleets and task forces, but its a bit fidgety and i dont think was explained that well (or im a moron, probably both)

And i really like the ship refitting system and being able to build your own versions.

New Focus trees are decent imo, though ive not explored all options, from what ive seen though the US civil war if you go fascist is utterly broken and communist UK seems like a huge up hill battle.

So mostly good, but could use some improvements and some extra work.

The historicity of Jesus is not up for debate, sorry to say. Feel free to question his divinity all you like but the majority of scholars agree he was a real person.

but was the first Middle Eastern Hippie actually born in the middle east? he could have just arrived there in his mid-who-knows-what and got pretty popular. as noted by famous historian, Bill Wurtz:
""Hi, everything's great" said some guy, who seems to be getting very popular, and is then arrested and killed for being too popular, which only makes him more popular. You could make a religion out of this."
A 12.7 civilization, according to this index.
