Terminator: The Simone Beauvoir Chronicles

Existential Comics recently offered a philosophical variation on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, a program which I used to blog about regularly because of the show’s exploration of religion and my interest in artificial intelligence. Having duly issued the necessary language warning, I nonetheless recommend it and link to it. Of related interest, see the [Read More…]

Noah’s Brother

Depending on where you are coming from, you can regard this as highlighting the absurdity of trying to treat the YEC interpretation of the flood story as factual, or as laying the groundwork for another theme park, Ark Encounter II. [Read more…]
