A recent Wired article had the following sentence: "... beneath the paranoia and infighting lurked something more vulnerable, an almost theodical disappointment."
I've never encountered this word, and I haven't found it in any online dictionaries either. I'd guess it shares a root with Theology, but I can't guess at the exact meaning.
Even after reading the Wikipedia article, the meaning of this sentence is not clear. What makes disappointment "theodical" when the subject is not God?
