Jesus Loves You, Aliens!

The image above was shared by a friend on Facebook. I’m sharing it not only because it is at the intersection of religion and science fiction – an intersection I enjoy exploring both professionally and personally – but also because it helpfully highlights religion as something typically human, and the question whether artificial intelligences we [Read More...]

Doctor Who: The Celestial Toymaker

“The Celestial Toymaker” is an episode of Doctor Who from the William Hartnell era, and most of the original footage is lost. Gary Zimmer sums up the significance of this early episode of Doctor Who very well: “`The Celestial Toymaker‘ was unlike any previous Doctor Who story.
