  • Some simple postulates and questions to start the discussion:
  • There is an interface between religion and science. Is it an impenetrable barrier, a guarded fence, a bridge, or an illusionary construct without true structure?
  • Fantasy novels and movies are often simply tales of wonder (when they are well-done). However, the genre also can embed philosophical, cultural, political, or religious ideas, metaphors, or messages without seeming to break the rules of political correctness that obfuscate real observations or opinions.
  • Science Fiction is like Fantasy, except that it treads on ideas or concepts that may be closer to our conscious observations about the world or the future thereof.
  • Religious philosophy often shakes its collective head at fictional presentations of ideas. This is to be expected.
  • However, is it fair for non-religious or anti-religious ideas to be thrust against religious perspective. Are these secular vs religious issues a hopeless clash of beliefs or a relationship worth exploring?
