It's All Fake!
It's all fake. Fake news, alternative facts, fake critics, fake Presidents. It's all fake. Every last part of it is fake.
How can such a circumstance built on 'fakeness' come to frame the working reality of an entire populace and adversely affect the entire world?
Sometimes I like to recall the scene in heaven with Satan and God teaching Job a lesson. Job is one of my favorite bible books, perhaps because its premise seems so implausible. But yet how many times have you felt there was some cosmic power tripping you up from time to time?
By reading and re-reading the ideas I find what I call a 'deeper' understanding about the intent of the book than a casual reading might result in. I think the purpose of the book is, the lesson it has to teach, is how man should relate to God. This comes to light in the later chapters during the dialogue. In chapter 38 God seems fed up with Job and gets in his face in verse three: "Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me."
God now lays into Job and shows him how ignorant he is. The point in all this is to lead Job to never falter in the way God works things out because they always work out for the best. Even if the present moment makes such a thought seem preposterous. God is teaching Job a lesson about the real nitty-gritty of the meaning of faith. Don't trust the one who doesn't have the knowledge, Job and his buddies in this case, trust your Maker which obviously has the knowledge.
In Chapter five the proposition opens up the inquiry into the nature of the cosmic secrets of the universe and the meaning of the experience of life. Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
