Apparently everything is possible at this point butt from what I gathered Earl was slowly gathering his army through all those years

If they did, Lulu dies. If they don't, now the Earl knows. Sometimes you have to sacrifice one of your own to save the rest, right?
We know nothing how those battles were done - anime suggested they did put up a fight but they still lost. In manga we know nothing but it's not like Tiki came and it was one-hit-KO. He shown his enemy he is not human. What's the difference for exorcist without Allen eye whatever he is akuma or not. Akuma has many forms.
They weren't attacked all at once, and it wasn't a surprise. Each of them actually fought a Noah rather than being assassinated by one without even knowing the Noah was there.
Then he certainly got what he suspected he will by acting careful.
Because he may not know the Order's forces and could get his butt kicked if he tried. Alternatively, he may just be waiting to do it when he has even more power just to be safe.
You change the meaning of my words. I never said that his carefree personality prevented him from making friends. His carefree character didn't let him keep calm in the situation with Allen death, making him burst out in anger too. In the end - Lavi is still Lavi and Kanda is still Kanda, while Allen is still Allen and Lenalee has new haircut since the beginning of series.
In Bleach, the characters act like they do because of what's needed in the manga at the time, with their personality and past *slightly* mixed in. Lavi's difficulty in preventing himself from making friends isn't due to his carefree personality... but maybe character development? :3
As far as Miranda is concerned, how many appearances Miranda had since Anita boat. Mainly "Their time is running out" or "Generals are strong". Wow, so much appearance.
She has changed a lot since her first appearance; when was the last time she said anything about being worthless? On Anita's boat?
Sometimes to save people and end the war you need to act like an asshole. One day, the teacher which you hated who almost made you not pass a grade and you hated him will be reminded as someone who actually taught you something. Same case here, although on bigger scale.
Morals would state that he see humans as human and respect their life (there are ways to justify killing in war even then). He doesn't. That's amoral. He may be doing his job, but he's doing it with a different set of beliefs than would be accepted even among the main characters. He *is* a great character, being such a contrast to everyone else, but that doesn't mean he's a good guy even deep down inside.
As far as Apocalypse is concerned, it's not considered "good" but "inevitable after a amount of sins will be gathered". Yet Apocalypse as Apocalypse is started by God, not a guy in hat and bunny ears. Apparently, if we don't get another Sodoma and Gommora on planet Earth, which many sects believe we already did but whatever, Apocalypse shouldn't happen as it's gods final retribution.
Depends on what's "bad". For instance, the Earl wants to bring about the Apocalypse. Many Christians view that as a good thing. The Noah may support the killing of humans for that purpose, but they're also human themselves, and not a single one has killed a human (onscreen, or even that we've heard of) that isn't an Exorcist - basically, self-defence since the Exorcists are doing the same thing (and can accept it). That makes the distinction between "good" and "evil" a little more difficult, and I didn't even mention the basic view of the Order that the lives of their own soldiers aren't really important when it comes to winning the war. While that may be an accepted view for war, it doesn't make it right or "good". We also haven't really seen the conflict from the perspective of the Noah, and we don't know the real motives for each side.
As far as christianity is concerned, saving ones live is most important and that's what Jesus and God taught.
Akuma at a level 4 or more don't really resemble humans anymore. No, Akuma at level 2 already had different personality. If he was getting emo while fighting each Akuma, he would be long dead.
Hence why it would suck if he didn't actually become a Noah to see their perspective, too. Even then, though, Allen's slowly becoming just a little corrupted... we've already seen his dark side, but he's threatened Noahs with death (and seems to mean it) and also doesn't actually seem to fight to save the akuma as much as just kick its ass (the level 4, anyway). Yeah, he would've saved Tiki, but by then, Tiki was a harmless human - or should have been. Even if it's a small change, it shows he's not perfect and could very well have a darker (or grayer) personality later in the story.
WOW, Dark side. Apparently he threatened his enemy who killed thousands that he will end his evil-doing. That's so dark..let's not be naive.
