Redemption and retribution come to the same thing in this case. As I quoted before: "The death agonies of the world you know will be offered to the Increate." If that isn't retribution, I'll shoot my dictionary! As to "why" the Increate should regard the deaths of millions, many, many generations removed from the presumed offences of their ancestors as desirable, only the Increate knows. -Roy --
