***OP: Yea I literally just ran into that cutscene a few gameplay hours after posting this. I feel silly.

** Lulu and Wakka outright point this out on the back of the Shoopuf when Tidus asks pretty much the exact same question. Yevon decides what technology they may use and what they may not; and conveniently what they may not use is all of the technology best suited to overthrowing the Yevon Church and what they may use keeps the people as productive and entertained tax paying citizens. I'm going to throw up a RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement disclaimer here and point out that there have been several real life examples of such religious hypocrisy throughout the ages in varying forms, many of which you probably don't need me to mention.

* I get the general distrust of Al Bhed as a cultural evolution. Machines = Sin in the public mind, I get that. But... what does Wakka think the Blitzball sphere is made out of? It's clearly not 100% magic as I just watched the cinematic (Playing the remastered edition) when the Tournament starts and it's clearly like, water turbines that pull from the sea. Not to mention you can clearly hear cranks and gears when the thing is functioning. It's like they're all picking and choosing what machines are good and bad and that just seems like flawed logic to me.

** Jecht and Tidus both come from Dream Zanarkand. It's also heavily implied they become more than just dreams of the fayth when they leave and interact with the "real" world. As Tidus didn't just stop existing, he went to the Farplane at the end of the game.

*** There's in-game evidence for that. One of the amazing things Yuna mentions about the Zanarkand blitzball stadium that Jecht told her about is that the stands are always full. She wouldn't have felt the need to mention that along with the bright lights and giant stadium unless it wasn't something that happened in Spira.

*** That line was why *I* disliked him-- not because of his willingness not to be obstructive, but because of his unwilligness to own it and discuss it with Wakka. If he's a clergyman, he should be able to discuss this with Wakka and explain his thinking, and not just say "pretend you didn't see it". That's a copout, and it screams that he's evil, since he's not only not following the teachings but not willing to own that he's not following them.

* What's the deal with Jecht and Tidus? Tidus turns out to be a dream of the fayth, and the young fayth who talks to him makes it clear that it's difficult for them to maintain him. With this in mind, Jecht is clearly an actual time traveler -- traveling forward 1000 years. If he were a dream, he could've been terminated by the fayth before (or maybe even after) transforming into Sin. Jecht clearly had a real son named Tidus and in spite of being a nearly omnipotent EldritchAbomination, he appears none the wiser that his "son" is fake. Seems like a simple PlotHole but am I reading this wrong somehow?

** Tidus wanted to go because he wanted answers from Auron. Yuna probably got excited at the thought of seeing her father's guardian again after 10 years and tagged along.

* There are always statements about this game being similar or even copy the story of Bahamut Lagoon, both being part of my favorite games of all time I personally can't see even a little bit of resemblance outside some omnipresent JRPG tropes, so can someone who spreads this notion around tell me how exactly you figure they were made from the same mold?

* There are always statements sentiment about this game being similar or even copy the story of Bahamut Lagoon, Lagoon floating around the internet (and on this very main page), while both games being part of my favorite games of all time I personally can't see even a little bit of resemblance between them outside some omnipresent JRPG tropes, so can someone who spreads this notion around tell me how exactly how you figure they were made from the same mold?
