The science fiction site IO9 posted some photos altered by a Russian artist to depict post-apocalyptic scenes. Several of them are very striking. This one, however, particularly caught my attention:
I suspect that churches that remained standing after an apocalypse would take on new or renewed significance – not necessarily in a manner that was typical of what went on their previously.
From a sci-fi perspective and interest, what would you imagine the role might be, in a post-apocalyptic world, of religion and the buildings associated with it?
