I don't think its wrong, just a different way of organizing the same information. I then do disagree with the author's assertion that the traditional way of organizing things represents an untruth.

belly-button logic is the idea that people come from other people rather than from god. Belly buttons symbolize the process of birth because they're the remnants of the umbilical cord which connected us to our mother.

Teenagers being eaten by adults refers to the corruption of knowledge of teenagers by adults, probably specifically in a religious context. The author is saying that religious adults are indoctrinating teenagers, and essentially "killing them" as reasoning beings. The "No record of their death" part is meant to express that the death is metaphorical and not literal, and that it isn't regarded with the severity that it warrants.

Jeeze Cato, does Ragnarokio have to explain everything?

I don't think that's an explanation so much as an interpretation.

indoctrination of youth by adults and bellybuttons symbolizing the cycle of birth as a rejection of god are both themes that occur repeatedly throughout the writing so i don't think it is a bad guess but it is still just a guess.
