Why do you bring up RL-politics as example, when you could have just written:
"Momo is Kinemon's son, anyone?" (jk)
Because I had already given multiple manga related examples and that was apparently not registering.
I do get your Point though. But if we can't take any written line of this manga for granted, then anyone could speculate the Living $hit out of this Story.
That's not the point. It's not "that line is a lie and you should ignore it." It's "that line tells us something, but is it telling the whole story? What leeway is Oda leaving for there to be more?""
It's about keeping an open mind on what's presented and seeing where that could potentially be expanded. As long as you aren't making up a theory from whole cloth reliant on a thousand different maybes and complete personal opinion that you have to fanfic (see the nakama thread for endless examples) and aren't super married to an idea, its fine to keep an open mind.
Neither me or Greg are saying "woah, those are not actually Celestial Dragons at all, Oda NEVER said that!" We're saying "How much did Oda actually tell us there? IS there room for that to not be exactly what it seems when it comes to these completely mysterious individuals who have been in the story for decades that we know nothing about, who seem completely different from everyone else in that group we have met thus far?"
For example. It's a long standing theory that, "Hey, maybe the D's are from the moon orginally. And then inbred, and the D is actually a half moon." It's a cool idea, it fits with some of the other wordplay Oda has done, and is supported by Enel's cover story. I promote that idea, its cool. Am I married to it? Am I 100% sure that's exactly how it will be and willing to stake my entire reputation on it? Will I be disappointing if thats not what happens? Nope! But its fun to look at some of the seeds Oda has planted, combined with his writing patterns, and try to extrapolate.
And why do I then get a "there is 0 evidence to that", when I bring up the idea of a 3rd tree "of Serpent" (1st being Adam tree and 2nd being Eve tree) which could be the origin of any DF around?
First I've heard of it that I can recall. Seems legit to me. Oda did choose those religious names and use the term devil, and Christianity is a fairly large religion in Japan. Seems reasonable to me, though I don't know if he'd actually go that far to have a modern religion ultimately be the source of evil in his story? (Compared to using things like Poseidon, Pluton and Uranus…) Serpent might be too on the nose, but maybe Lilith?
But yeah, seems like a fair guess and extrapolation to me. If we already know there are two trees with a specific naming system, why not a third?
