Actually, yes. Since you are applying Christian religious views here, I will respond with Christian teachings. The Bible teaches that God is a god of not only holiness (love, mercy, etc) but also a god of order. In sinning, you not only violate this order but also go against the basic priniciples of order on which God founded the universe. The opposite of order is obviously chaos, and sin induces this chaos. That is what happened to Adam and Eve in committing the original sin in the Garden of Eden. By allowing sin into the world that God had originally created without sin, they had allowed chaos in, and chaos is insanity.Originally Posted by Cornerstone
In fact, sin is described as a sickness of the soul. The word insane, when broken down into its Latin origins means in- or not, and sanus healthy.
To go against the order of God, and more importantly, to go against something omnipotent, would be considered insanity in its truest form.
I have to agree with the insanity of Shiro theory. Not only by his actions, but by the very creatures created by them. They are morphologically and biologically twisted beyond scientific comprehension. HP Lovecraft, the master of horror insanity often used this kind of mutation of the body to represent the monsters a person began to see as he was driven to madness. Shiro, like many have already said, is madness personified.Originally Posted by Cornerstone
Think of the Elder Scrolls series' Daedra Lord Sheogorath, only with two swords and no pocketwatch.
