 Biblical references: The Subnet

Genesis 1:24-2:3

The first day through fourth days, I see no subnet reference, but on the fifth day, I clearly see a reference or connection. On the fifth day, God created animals of all kind. These animals are similar to the sub-bots seen in Submachine 10. However, the sub-bots are broken. Does anyone think the ability to find a reference for this?
For now, let's move on to the 6th day, in which God created people. The people being created are similar to when people went into the subnet.

Genesis 6:5-7

These verses talks about the wickedness of humans, and how God was angered at them, so he was going to destroy them. There is a portion of the subnet that has caused the death of many humans in one way or another: The Loop. There are huge polar opposites to these scenarios, however. When the player dies in the loop, it is from dehydration. In the Bible, people die from drowning.

If anyone wants to add a biblical reference, they may do so.

How are they similar?

Then anything involving people going places is a reference?.. Even if it is, people are either creators or invaders, but not the beloved children.

That would be the people-getting-killed-by-something-they've-meddled-with trope. Can't see how it points to the Bible.

BTM#3 comes to mind, but that's not exactly a reference, is it.

If you compare the Subnet to anything large enough, like the Bible, and make the connections broad enough, you're bound to find coincidences and similarities. SO I'm not sure of the point of this.

It was just a thought I had. There are a few references of the Buddhist religion is Submachine. Maybe the same could go for Catholicism.

And even if my thoughts are WILDLY OFF, maybe someone else could OBVIOUSLY come up with something better.

Well, there's a lot of syncretism in Submachine so one can easily find things from many religions, in particular in Sub10 there are statues referencing Christianism and such. But finding Bible, Quran, etc. quotes matching the plot of Submachine will always feel a bit forced, since Mateusz seems to borrow religious elements mostly for artistic purposes rather than for the sake of the plot itself.

Interestingly enough this is why my first idea for BTM 6 failed. But I won't go into details, just in case something comes out of it in the future.
