back with a vengeance

Let's clarify one thing beforehand: I am the contest administrator, not the contest judge. And will never become one because it will destroy my objectivity as the contest administrator. |
Being the admin for the contest, it is my duty/role to make way for new stories into the contest i.e to welcome them. However, being well aware of the contest judging criteria, I also have the obligation to advise contestants when and where something is inappropiate. In short, I'm like... God (not that I possess omnipotent power or anything like that!): God can't interfere with one's free will, but God can devise rules that tell you when and what is inappropiate when doing something. While the contest certainly welcomes adaptation of certain STALKER ideas, entire change of concept of The Zone, such as that in your case (Religious, Genesis2 etc.) is almost certainly not going to be well-received by the judges (who are going to be given strict code of conduct when they start the review process).
Finally, no one has yet to get away with the Russian/US/Ukrainian thingy yet! Judgement Day isn't upon us just yet. As far as I'm aware the judging method isn't officially announced yet.

From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli'
We fight our countrys battles In the air', on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom , And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title Of United States Marines.
Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze From dawn to setting sun';
We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy Ever gaze on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines. - US Marines Hymn
