|CHAPTER 51 The Plague was pretty hard to ignore,
2 What with so many bodies piled up in the streets and all,
3 Including the bodies of priests and nobles,
4 aWhich was kind of unsettling,
5 And caused a lot of Christians to start asking questions,
6 bLike "What's the use of never having any fun to speak of if we're all just going to die of some disgusting disease?"
7 And so it occurred to some of them that maybe the church didn't have all the answers,
8 And maybe it wasn't a completely good idea that nobody knew anything about anything except what the priests said was in the Bible,
9 When it would have been kind of nice to know some things about other things,
10 cLike, say, medicine.
CHAPTER 61 And so it happened that more and more Christians asked more and more questions,
2 About lots of things,
3 Including Christianity,
||4 dSince nobody but priests and monks had actually read the Bible for quite a long time,
5 Say, a thousand years or so,
6 And it occurred to some of them that maybe there was another interpretation of the Bible,
7 Besides the one the priests had.
8 And it occurred to others that maybe some of the old bad heathen Romans and Greeks might have known something worthwhile too,
9 In spite of what the priests said,
10 Because nobody could remember hearing that the Roman and Greek apes, however heathen they were, had ever lost two thirds of their population to some disgusting disease.
CHAPTER 71 The Bubonites asked their questions,
2 eAnd most of them died anyway,
3 But a few survived,
4 And eventually some of these started coming up with some interesting answers.
5 And the ones with the answers were called Giants.
