← Godless science fiction writers; godless science fiction

Science Fiction can stretch your mind. It can make your imagination so vast that the God of the theists is too small to notice.

Science fiction works (when it does) because it is about the possible, which increases the sense of wonder. Science fiction can be deeply unsatisfying when the science is so poor that it seems like magic.

So of course it is a threat to religion.
