I work-related in very technical environment. One of the men in the group, one absolutely brilliant microcontroller programmer, is a “believer” (for lack of a better word) and also avid scriptures reader. We frequently encounter strange circuit timing anomalies the he is asked come fix. The methodically goes v the procedure and eventually finds it. Invariably he offers the aforementioned quote once he describes what he found and also the work-around solution.How need to I respond? Right currently I simply say “Nice work!” or “Good find!” Meanwhile, i am silently screaming: “Seriously? carry out you think God cares that there is a race condition in between pin A_Vsr_OTd and also pin Clk_240? Really?! and also if he cared so much why didn’t he breakthrough said signal by 350 ps to stop the condition in the very first place?!” But, I just say “Great job!” What walk the expression mean? Is this acquired from a bible quote? must I just ignore it? Is over there a far better way come respond?

Note: i am even less religious than a details raging alien here. However, I want to it is in respectful and continue to work-related well v all the staff.

I’ve spent much more of mine life than I care to mental in that book, and also I’ve never heard “God takes treatment of his fools”.

I’ve heard “the fool hath stated in his heart there is no God”“Delight is not seemly because that a fool;.” “Arise, O God, plead thine own cause, mental the how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily!” (I love the one)“To have actually a fool for a kid brings grief”“The wise choose the fool will certainly not be long remembered…”

…Biblegod doesn’t seem to choose fools very much.

“When in the presence of reasoned men, I take into consideration them my equal. When in the presence of fools, i listen”.Confucius

The an ext common phrasing is “God takes treatment of fools and children”. It’s not a straight biblical reference, an ext an unattributed “old saying”. I don’t think your colleague is necessarily trying to do a theological point; that sounds like he doesn’t desire to show up to think he’s warm stuff.
