What does God need with a meteorite?

Kirk asks God a question

When I was still in graduate school, one of my housemates and I decided to take a Friday afternoon and a bus to a theater off-campus to see a matinee of the fifth Star Trek movie on opening day.

My housemate and I stumbled into the cloud-covered daylight afterwards and questioned why William Shatner was allowed to direct a Star Trek movie.

The movie is about Spock’s brother trying to commandeer the Enterprise on behalf of God.

Reader, it was horrible.

Kirk, at some point in this disaster of a movie, where the bridge crew sings “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” at Yosemite, Uhura does a fan dance, and that’s about the only other bits I remember from it, asks the obvious question: What does God need with a starship?

And this is the question I have for the authors of the Tall el-Hammam paper purporting to establish the cause of the destruction of Biblical Sodom as a meteorite airburst’s plasma spike. If one believes that God destroyed Sodom isn’t faith that God did it enough, considering other experts are questioning the paper’s conclusions.
