Minton, you sly cat-mutant! Don't tease them about things like dugpas and phylacteries!
You'll have to tell me what dugpas are in 3e before I can spoil them!

That's one of the things we discussed, though it wasn't our primary focus.

Sorcerously infused Evocations?

Rituals (as something different from spells)?

Sorcery-Augmented Thaumaturgy?
Nope, nope, and nope!

Vance and I have been discussing sorcery this very day! Not spells, though, nor Charms.

One thing I feel with a question like this is a mild sense of pressure to always come up with explanations for where "new" things came from, and I never quite feel satisfied with the answers I come up with.
Sometimes there will be straightforward explanations spun out of existing setting elements, such as the origins of the asmani. Sometimes an explanation will be derive from existing setting elements but in an esoteric manner, such as Moira Senegra's idiosyncratic origin. And sometimes an explanation simply will not be forthcoming, such as the origin of Eldran Tabrar's source of power

Perhaps you shouldn't start pounding beer at 8 a.m.!

3e won't give much attention to threats against Creation as a whole, as threats on such a grand scale tend to suck the air out of the rest of the setting. It's hard to care about the troubles of a specific individual, family, village, town, city, clan, tribe, or nation when the very existence of all existence is under siege!

That aside, there will be new local and regional threats that have not been seen before. Encounters with creatures such as an asman, walkure, or rantai, or characters like Eldran Tabrar, Moira Senegra, or Mist the Revolutionary, will provide you with new and interesting opposition that doesn't fit the same old 2e taxonomy.

People tend to conflate two things when they talk about science. One is the scientific method. The other is the information derived from the use of the scientific method.

Formulating hypotheses, making predictions based on hypotheses, performing experiments to test those predictions, analyzing the results? That's science, and it should work roughly as it does in the real world.

Chromosomes, molecules, the weak nuclear force? Not science, but rather knowledge about our world gathered by the scientific method. Creation is not our world, and such knowledge does not necessarily apply.

This looks like one of those conversations where people are talking past one another and doubling down on points of perceived disagreement rather than actually engaging. I am currently engaged in a time-sensitive project but will stop in at some later point to discuss if needed.

Hell is the bodies and spirits of the fallen Primordials. They have hatred for humanity (and the gods and Incarna) but that's still not their defining attribute.
Vitriol, which flows throughout the Demon City and infuses so much of its landscape, isn't just some sort of arcane magic acid. It is the hatred of the Yozis, a passion so potent that it manifests physically.

While I do not have the quote to hand, John has commented publicly on this semi-recently.

Let's not fight! Both your favorite shows are pretty. (I'm currently re-watching both Burn Notice and Leverage, and each is great TV in its own way.)
