	The Bible teaches that before the coming of the Son of Man, humanity was
under-age, and was under the governance of angels -- which would include
fallen angels. Rather like being an officer-cadet in boot camp and under
sergeants for a few months. Whether Gene has this particular aspect of
Biblical teaching in mind or not, he seems to believe something similar, to
wit: that in the ancient world there really were "gods" and "spirits"
actively engaged with human beings.
