The Meaning of Science Fiction and Fantasy

Laura Brekke blogged about Doctor Who as a “third space” for interreligious dialogue. Here is a sample:

I am a Doctor Who advocate. This is my bias. I have found many wonderfully rich conversations about meaning-making, ethics in practice, and theological conundrums elegantly drawn from the last seven seasons (not to mention the Classic series which ran from 1963-1989). I have delighted in its whimsy and seen student enthusiasm light up when we share this common passion.

Geek Goes Rogue mentioned Pope Francis talking about aliens, while Billy Kangas noted that Pope Francis is a Tolkien fan (as indicated in a 2008 message).

Huffington Post reports on the discovery of a recording of J. R. R. Tolkien talking about the meaning of The Lord of the Rings.
