Mystical Pregnancies and Other Sci-Fi Tropes Around the Blogosphere

Elsewhere in the realm of sci-fi, Rod of Alexandria also posted a farcical account of the most famous time lord bringing the fourth quest for the historical Jesus to an end.

A post by David Bailey also fits under this heading, since it addresses the way young-earth creationism depicts God as not merely an author of fiction but as a deceiver.

On a related note, the book I edited, Religion and Science Fiction, will be available soon! More news will follow in the next couple of days.
