Religion and Science Fiction around the Blogosphere

SF Signal shared the news that a new online Encyclopedia of Science Fiction has been launched. It has an entry on religion.

I mentioned this article and discussion of it on a previous occasion, but more recently Allan Bevere chimed in on whether God could have died for Klingons.

Philip K. Dick and Religion has some quotes by Philip K. Dick on religion.

    They’ve been reading too much Leviticus for healing their DVR. And maybe a little too much Samuel’s sons, as they dip their fork into the meat pot for too big a share of the meat. Don’t any of these people ever eat salads? The 2nd clip, the people are even fatter. Must be symbolic for the Aaronic priesthood living too high on the hog (now that Christians are no longer kosher).
