Yeah, the meteor thing was pretty cool. And seemed to prove that if you can't hit something fast, you can make up for it with mass.

Shit's all sorts of different now.

Whoot new thread.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Wow, that was some damn tasty natter to close out the last thread.

Can't believe all the Job haters in the hizzouse. Jesse, I thought you were a PK?

The Book of Job adresses the tough questions like, "Why do bad things happen to good people" and "Why does God allow suffering and evil?"

It's easy to keep faith when you've got all the sheep in the meadow and lots of comely daughters and stout sons.

The Book of Job adresses the tough questions like, "Why do bad things happen to good people" and "Why does God allow suffering and evil?"

The Book of Job also says that the answers to those questions are "God's got a bet on with the Devil on how faithful you really are." Not a reassuring thing to base a faith on.

It's easy to keep faith when you've got all the sheep in the meadow and lots of comely daughters and stout sons.

But if you're the comely daughter or stout son who gets offed to make a point, the faith may take on a different feeling for you.

That's the furry discussion. The Stoats and the Redshirts should be friends.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

Furry, or otherkin?

What makes a stoat comely anyway?

the answers to those questions are "God's got a bet on with the Devil on how faithful you really are."

That's not the answer, that's just plot mechanics. I know folks read for narrative, but that's not the best reading of Job. Also, God is not supposed to be understood to be an asshole in the OT - that's a fairly contemporary reading.

Though that is one of the answers in Job: "Quit being a punk-ass bitch expecting God to be your magic genie of good luck. It's not about what God has done for you lately. It's also not about what God has done to you lately."
