"Yes, most Sci-Fi movies are stupid, but they also have a lot of cool efects. One must differentiate between fantasy and  hardcore Sci-Fi (e.g Asimov). I also recommend my favorite Sci-Fi atheist humorous author the late Douglas Adams. The…"

About Me:
I have grown up under communist rule in Romania and then emigrated to Israel. My education was and remained that religion is the opium of the people I am quite annoyed about the high religiosity in my are and the religious fanaticism of the latest years which cost the lives of many people. That made me write an Atheist fantasy/sci-fu
