"Believe in me and you shall die, forever." (18.121)
Tyler is almost a Jesus figure, but a perverse one. Whereas Christianity promises eternal life, Tyler promises eternal death. Of course to him, death is an honor. Only in death do the members of Project Mayhem achieve recognition.
| Quote #9
You can't teach God anything. (30.24)
Our narrator has kind of given up here. Mainly, he's given up on Project Mayhem and his attempt to make a change. Both his father and the upper-class could be models for God, and our narrator has decided that they'll never learn new tricks.
