My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Reverend Frank and his friend Randy have weekly Thursday night chess game and discussion, the topic is news from SETI that they’ve detected an intelligent signals from deep underground, in the middle of the ocean, and from inside a Pacific volcano implicating multiple intelligent life-forms that aren’t human. Then as they play their game, they have a philosophical discussion about the implication on religion (namely Christianity) and science with the new of non-human intelligent life. The game ends in a draw and Randy leaves, but afterwards the chess pieces then devour the last donut thus showing that Frank already knew non-human intelligent life existed.

Although I disagree with some of the theological things Reverend Frank proposed, the discussion is still a nice one. The game, even though I don’t understand the lingo, and the talk are well constructed creating a very good story with a nice twist ending.
