Strictly speaking, yes. IIRC the one or two times he's tried to go 
"it just happens" it's backfired on him. That said, I often gloss 
over his rationalisations - especially in cases like this when the 
text is already wordy with explanations.

My intention was that ARAK wanted Retcon Lad to zap the Judeo-Christian-
Islamc god. But now that I think about it I'm not sure what was the 
agency directly destroying those cities and turning people to pillars 
of salt. {googles} No, the angels were there to judge the inhabitants, 
but Yaweh was the one reigning fire upon the cities and the plains. I 
must be thinking of the old Ostrander issues of _The Specter_ where the 
Spectre acts as God's hitman in this (and other) matters.

Yes, but I'm not expecting precsion when people are throwing insults

Somewhere off to the north and west where there are likely to be normal 
human cities rather than myth lands.

You know, thinking about it that's a good point, and one that I hadn't 
already thought of and simply decided to gloss over. I really don't have 
a quick answer for that one.
