Loved the Ecclesiastes dialogue

In a short amount of time you covered many of the issues I think about in this Book. I’m pleased that you appreciated all the paradoxical statements for their strange truth vs attempting to try and reconcile every contradiction. There are many contradictions in our finite human lives, they’re inherent and let’s stop treating values/ethics and the entire human experience like a math or logic problem. We can discuss and debate this Book and all of it’s ideas without “figuring it out.”

Better to learn to get comfortable amidst the chaos. I’m trying.

Lastly, kudos for mentioning the beauty of the language in Ecclesiastes. I loved the sections which you read aloud.

Yes, please discuss the Book of Job.
Thank you.

Redeems the internet

After that black hole of toxicity and human refuse that is the internet has finished sucking all that's good and meaningful out of life, Very Bad Wizards is the one thing that can have made it all worthwhile.
