I haven’t read a fictional story in a freaking decade, and I’m way behind the times on games.

I admit I don’t even know anything about half the characters you people talk about.

I could write an epic scale novel, and have even been as much as 120 pages into such a project in the past, but every time I try to write something I feel guilty that I could be doing something more important and intellectual, rather than fiction.

Just to give you an example, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien were both believers in God, and highly educated, but for some reason they spent the majority of their time writing about fictional wizardry and nonsense. Does this make any sense, particularly since most of the people who read their works are not particularly intellectual regarding their own spirituality?

If I wanted to talk in Kenya I would not speak Qenya.

C.S. Lewis wrote a book entitled, “The Problem of Pain”.

I have not yet read that book, maybe I should, maybe I shouldn’t. I know that my own struggles with nerve pain and mental illness have hurt myself and people around me, but the truth be told his musing are likely no more informed nor advanced than my own.

Is there anything distinctive between Eru Illuvatar and Jehovah, besides the name, which says, “You know what, that is a more accurate description of the real God than the other one”?

Okay, the Bible creation story is actually more sensible than Tolkien’s, but certain things don’t appear to be in exactly the correct order compared to the geological record.

How do you identify the difference between one claim to omnipotence and another claim, short of something distinctive to prove the difference, such as a Miracle?

The true song of Creation is as though the True God is pulling the strings of the Muse.

I am in the song twice that I know of, though most others are there only once. Why should that be?

Maybe I have lost my mind.

A few months ago I experienced some sort of time loop, even though I don’t believe in time travel per se. It was as though every event of the day went exactly the same way about a month apart.

Maybe we can have a vs Forum convention, where all the weirdos who have next to nothing in common can meet and talk in person about real life issues, instead of nonsense on a forum?

Oh yeah, queue 4 years of “Impeach Trump” signs.

I wonder what clowns will run in the 2020 elections?

look, i read the rest of your post. but lets be honest here: your greatest skill, seems to be with fiction and fictional writing. i’d run with it, even if just for the sake of running with it

fiction may be just that; but the message it can convey, translates into reality in how it affects the reader. it is a venue that can broaden the horizons of reader(s), in a safe domain (fiction) of “experimentation to new and wild things” if you will...

What’s wrong with JRR Tolkien making an amazing world filled with wonder and magic instead of just being another dude yelling his opinions into either an echo chamber or a dark void?
