"Now imagine those gods went far beyond us in their development, about as far as how far we went from insects. Imagine that they are as disgusted us as we are with insects. So they are trying to exterminate us with all their might. Sandworms, hardroaches, spitsnakes, horselocusts, sand storms, acid storms, fire storms, volcanoes, earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis - this is only an incomplete list, which is constantly updated."
"I understood," answered Ghorm. "What is moral?"

Hi Oleks,

Those gods Omah is talking about are pure evil! In fact, I think Omah is actually talking about the devil!

Here are a few of my comments

  • tsunamis - pay attention to your pronunciation of this word: [ tsoo-nah-mee ] Watch this video for some more guidance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmfgiOpD0LQ
  • about as far as how far we went from insects - about as different as we are.../how much more developed we are than insects. (I would advise using the present tense as you are comparing human beings in their current state with insects)
  • that they are as disgusted us as we are with insects - that they are as disgusted as [you just missed out the word 'as' here] us as we are with insects
  •  So they are trying to exterminate us with all their might. [Suggestion] That is the reason why they are trying to exterminate us with all their might.
  • "I understood," answered Ghorm. "What is moral?" [What does Ghorm mean here? Could you elaborate a bit please :)]
