I’m Not Saying It Was Arians…

I can’t believe that no one thought to make an “Ancient Arians” meme before now. I suspect that someone created this for Trinity Sunday, which just passed. [Read more...]

Jesus: Out Of This World

This cartoon by Spike Davis seems perfect for Ascension Day. It raises lots of interesting questions, related to topics such as inclusiveness and revelation, and not only about the meaning of the story in Acts depicting Jesus ascending into the sky, headed in the direction of what we today think of not as “heaven” but [Read More...]

Jews vs. Aliens

TOR and IO9 both drew attention to the anthologies Jews vs Aliens and Jews vs Zombies. I’m not sure what else to say about them, except that they are at the intersection of religion and science fiction, and so I should read them! Also worth a mention is that a contributor to one of the volumes [Read More...]

Barack Obama: I’m Not Saying You Were Aliens, But…

I support the separation of church and state, and am pretty sure that the President of the United States has no business quoting Exodus or any part of the Bible in an official speech. On the other hand, contrary to what conspiracy theorists are sure to come up with soon if they haven’t already, this statement [Read More...]

Atheism Isn’t Skepticism

A recent IO9 article indicated that more people in Britain believe in ghosts and aliens than in God. IO9 also highlighted a science experiment that might offer an explanation of why people see/feel ghosts (which Smithsonian also reported on), talked about spirituality and pseudoscience in science fiction, and shared an infographic of misconceptions which are widespread, [Read More...]

Extraterrestrials and Human Religions

Hemant Mehta shared the above video, which is based on a new book by  astronomer David Weintraub, Religions and Extraterrestrial Life: How Will We Deal With It? . It might be one to incorporate into a class of mine on either religion and science, or religion and science fiction (the subject spans the two, not yet [Read More...]

Aliens Helped Humans Build the Pyramids

This came my way via Kara Cooney on Facebook, who also shared this gem (presumably depicting a scene connected with the audiobook The Eye of the Scorpion):     [Read more...]

Heavenly Hierarchy

This past Sunday in my Sunday school class, we dived back into the Letter of James after a long break. We didn’t get far. We were up to James 1:17, and I decided not to let the cosmological and theological assumptions behind the notion of good gifts coming down from above, and God as the [Read More...]

Jesus and the Aliens

Hemant Mehta shared the image below, offering it as a response to Ken Ham’s silly remarks that we should not be looking for aliens, since they are doomed to hell because God became man and not Klingon: IO9 also had a piece dealing with the range of Christian responses to the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
