Geek Orthodox

Geek Orthodox July 19, 2015

Neil de Grasse Tyson tweeted yesterday: The next time anybody asks me about my religion, I think I’ll reply “Geek Orthodox.”

It isn’t what Tyson has in mind, but I could totally see calling my Sunday school class, or a group that met in the evenings to discuss the intersection of science fiction and religion, “The Geek Orthodox Church.”

Plus it is a great pun.

I wonder how many people could fit under this umbrella? I wonder whether Tyson, with his views, could feel welcome at the kind of discussion gathering I’m envisaging.

And I wonder not only how many new people might attend my Sunday school class if I named it this, but how many people might leave it. Alas, the geek umbrella is not so large that everyone feels comfortable gathering underneath it.
