Robot Fundamentalists September 3, 2014

The website IO9 highlighted my work on religion and artificial intelligence today. Click through to take a look. The chapter that article mentions is available on my Selected Works page. It is from the volume I edited, Religion and Science Fiction:.

The coolest part was that a former student of mine spotted the piece even before it appeared in my feed reader, and got in touch. He blogs about comic books and other topics at Nerd Out With Me. Please do pay his blog a visit!

I took a quick look for images related to religious robots, and there turned out to be an abundance. Here are a few that I thought worked particularly well in conjunction with the theme of my chapter.

    Presumably robots go straight to Heaven. I don’t see how they could be subject to Adam’s Sin.
