Wherein I make the argument that the Reclaiming is already complete:
So. The Reclaiming. The thing that the angry Minmatar, and the paranoid Caldari, and the deviant Gallente believe looms over them like a hanging looming thing. Maybe a fruit. Or a hammer. You know, that thing that was in the mythology. No, that was a sword, wasn’t it ? that was dangling ? Anyway, it’s not important right now.
What is important, is that the other peoples of the cluster live in Fear that the Reclaiming is going to happen to them, and that everything they care about shall be destroyed underfoot of the stomping boots of Imperial Paladins.
This fear is born out of the Book of Reclaiming in the Scriptures, where it quite clearly states the following:
"I give to you the destiny of Faith,
And you will bring its message to every planet of every star in the heavens:
Go forth, conquer in my Name, and reclaim that which I have given."
Now, the fearful masses of the heathen sinners, believe that the golden Boot of the Empire shall squash them like a sinful insect. As if insects are capable of sin - being creatures of pure instinct and no reason, they cannot sin, they merely act. Why, it is like accusing a Slaver hound of being naked in a public place. They have no concept of clothing, therefore nudity means nothing to them.
Anyway, the important thing here, is that there is a comma, after the “conquer in my Name” bit. Which is Important.
So, conquering is not, by the existence of that comma, a requirement for the Reclaiming to be complete. So the fears of the heathens are unwarranted. Anyway, that’s not quite the point I was going to make.
The point I was going to make is this:
In that same passage, it says to “Bring its message to every planet of every star”.
Now then, the cluster of New Eden is now fully explored. Humanity has reached everywhere reachable by the stargate network. Unlike the time prior to the encountering of the Gallente and Caldari, where vast areas of space were unknown to the Amarr.
So, we can see that within New Eden, there is not one single planet that is unaware of the existence of the Amarr faith.
Thus, the Reclaiming of New Eden is complete. The message has been brought to every planet of every star.
Now then, if we look elsewhere in the Scriptures, we find that it states:
"To know the true path, but yet, to never follow it. That is possibly the gravest sin"
Which means that the poor heathens that are aware of the existence of the Amarr faith, but choose not to follow it, are committing a grave sin. And Sinners must be Saved. And the route to being Saved is to embrace God’s love.
Thus, the Reclaiming by Force has already been completed. The heathen peoples of New Eden have no reason to fear the Golden Boot.
All that remains, is for them to embrace God’s love, and be Saved.
