Distracted Religion and Sci-Fi Memes

Distracted Religion and Sci-Fi Memes August 29, 2017

Distracted by modern science meme

A student made a meme about modern theology and philosophy and shared it with a colleague, who in turn shared it with me, and I of course thought that I ought to share it with you. I’ve saved what I think is the best of these memes (one that I made myself, on a topic that I think interests most readers of this blog) for last, and you will find it at the bottom of this post. If you came here via Facebook, I made that one the preview image. Hopefully the rest of this post will have been worth reading on your way there…

First, some brief general introduction. I presume you’ve all seen some version of these memes, which make use of stock photos by Antonio Guillem. It is clear that the memes are being created and circulating even among those who have not paid him for use of the photo, and it is also clear that once something like this goes viral, there is no real chance of stopping it. Nevertheless, hopefully this incredible and unexpected exposure is also leading to some added earnings for the photographer!

Anyway, returning to the meme above, can you come up with any other memes of this sort that relate to religion and/or theology?

For those who read my blog for things related to science fiction, and put up as patiently as they can with my blogging about religion, let me share a version especially for some of you, albeit one that does not reflect my own outlook…

For the sci-fi fans reading this, what other science fiction versions of this meme can you come up with?

Finally, returning to religion but from a different angle, here’s one that relates to atheists, their penchant for skepticism, and the fact that some turn their heads away from the principles of skepticism when Jesus mythicism comes walking by.
