There's not a whole lot to go on here. Its a short passage but where is Nietzsche? Where is God? I imagine if the former were ever to come to the heavens he would march up to the holy seat itself and rail the gold off the throne. Its like if the Joker were to debate the Grand Inquisitor. Its a showdown for the ages but where is it?

I posted just a very small excerpt in this thread (I'll add more if you'd really like to see it).

The ultimate confrontation scene, which also happens to be the climax, is one that I am still experimenting with and not quite ready to share. As you point out, it's very essential to the story and therefore must be written with the utmost care. I'm not entirely satisfied with what I've done so far.

Did you ever watch the Turin Horse? Excellent Hungarian film and might do something to help with the writing.

I might also say cut the introduction. The meat of the story is the encounter, why delay?

Well, done. I like the voice in this and the overall sense of irony.
