They're not godly though. Matareal got shot in the face, I think, and then died. Gagheil got through in the throat and died. Sacheil had its arms broken and then turned into C4 and blew up. Gods don't die, but all the angels did, therefore, they're not godly.

God.

Though the Occam-approved explanation is simply that you're seeing mechanics where there are none intended. The mask simple has a network of cracks, and the eye has a lens with a muscular ring around it.

>>100493858
The simple network of cracks is on the right, the mechanical imprints are on teh left. A simple network of cracks wouldn't crack that perfectively at right angles.

It was working on doing just that, but a trio of likewise weakly godlike entities intervened.

That only worked because an EVA unit, ie another godling, had taken out the AT field.

Once again an Eva present to deal with the divine protection of the AT field. Then it got a full battleship broadside and a half downs the throat...

By and Eva. Which then got to work on the core with a broken off rib...

If they die they're not gods, because gods can do anything they want. If they can die, then they're just really powerful. You don't call tanks gods, and all the angels are are tanks going up against ants, the eva's are just tanks as well, thats why they can go head to head with most of them.

Gods that die aren't gods, plain and simple, that;s why they're gods, they can do anything they want. The moment they die, they stop being gods, because gods cant be alive if they're dead, because people die when they are killed.

You are confusing Omnipotent with the term god you know?

Because people don't need to be omnipotent in order to kick your ass.

"God" is often a relative term to describe a force of nature unobtainable by human measures. The whole idea of an all-knowing, all-loving, all-powerful god, is distinctly a judiac, and not reflective of the traditional definitions of "God".

Take the lovecraft "gods" for instance.

Ok, I don't know who is trolling and who legitimatelly seeks answers here.

Basically EVA universe can be summoned as so:

1: Lovecraftian-tier ancient beings realize they will go extinct soon. They decide to seed worlds with their creation as extension of their being.

2: They do so by creating a "packages" which include:
-box (Geofront)
-god-like being (Adam/Lilith) with one of two Fruits (Life or Knowledge: means S2 Engine or Brain).
-Manual (Dead Sea Scrolls)
-Power Off button (Longinus Spear)

Then they send it into the cosmos.

3: Package with Adam lands on Earth. He slowly starts terramorphing and creates the Angels. (it's his version of reproduction)

4: Lilith crashes on Earth and it's Longinus Spear is destroyed. No two such being were to be on te same world ever, so Adam's Spear activates itself and freezes Adam and Angels.

5: Lilith seeds Earth with LCL and Lilim (mankind) Evolves

6: Seele finds dead sea scrolls and get weird ideas

7: Seele finds Adam and accidentaly wakes him up.

8: Adam tries to cleanse his planet of Lilith's creation, making the second impact. He is stopped before he can finish.

Aaaaand here goes the series.
Funny thing - we are basically alien usurpers.

History is written by the victors, if someone killed off anyone that opposed them, they could say god is another word for flapjacks, and there would be no one to counter his argument, and hundreds of years later, people would be at Denny's orders blueberry gods with a side of hashbrowns.
>>
They're not godly. They're as godly as humans are godly. Humans come from the Seed of Knowledge and angels come from the Seed of Life. The problem with the angels merging with Lilith is that then the Seed of Knowledge and the Seed of Life are together in the same being. A being with infinite life and infinite knowledge is God. Rei gives the power to become God in EoE. Using that power, Shinji could turn the world into whatever he wanted, he chose to return it to the way it was, since he had all his friends there.

You are thinking of the all-mighty judeo-christian God. Most gods, in other mythologies, do die.
However, since there are too many gods in most mythologies, some of them are of a higher caliber than others;
Gods like Odin and Zeus might not be described as killed, however Loki and pretty sure Hera died.
In the more commonly accepted motif of a dying god, the deity goes away and does not return.

Because it was created tha way by Adam.
There was an option to create an angel whose organs/parts/whatever follow some principles of basic mechanics. It worked, so why not.

Also it's more of a case of machines looking like Sachiel than Sachiel looking like machines.

>implying all of eva isn't a creation myth
The series ends with two human beings on earth, Shinji and Asuka AKA Adam and Eve as they are called in the bible.

Eva isn't in the future, it's actually the far past. This is why although there are many christian images, there is zero reference to christianity anywhere in the dialog. Because it hasn't been created yet.

No, Kaworu is Tabris. Adam is that embryo-thing grafted to Gendo's hand.

Watch the fucking show.
>>
>>100496951
Adam is the little bugger who gets implanted into Gendo's hand.

The SELEE makes Shinji bring about the end of the world, after which a new one emerges, with Shinji and Asuka as the new Adam and Eve. Shinji even screws Lilith before he finds himself with Eve.

Thus we have a New Genesis.

>>
>>100497068
>>100497122
>>100497209
The embryo is Adam's body, Kaworu is literally Adam's soul trapped within a human body.
When Gendo sticks his hand (Containing both the soul and body of Adam) into Lilith during EoE, he is merging them together to begin Instrumentality. Hence why you see Kaworu come out of giant Rei and within Shinji's heart alongside her.
Unless Kaworu and Shinji are the same person, your theory is invalid and makes no sense. Why would Yui lie to Shinji?
