"I would now like to put my cards on the table. Being a lifetime atheist surrounded by religious people and because I am also a science fiction fan (especially Douglas Adams and Asimov), I wrote sci-fi fun novel called "The Freak…"

"I'll heartily second The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series! Some of Adams' observations have become legendary: “This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy…"

"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…"

Loren Miller replied to Peter Kornis's discussion Science Fiction and Atheism
"If Robert Heinlein had a blind spot as regards some of his earlier work, it was in his overestimate of humankind's mental and/or psychic capacities.  This came to a head in his most famous novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, where he posits…"

"Joan, in the case of Armageddon, I think the Urban Dictionary has it right when they define "cheesy" as: "trying too hard, unsubtle, and inauthentic."Armageddon wants to push every button in the book, from cliched patriotism…"

"That would have been Armageddon, Jerry, which is about as cheesy an S/F flick as I may have ever seen, never mind scientifically inaccurate!"

"Just this week I saw Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about a Sci-Fi movie (forget which one, sorry).  He said it has "more scientific blunders -- per minute ..." than any other.  That's a lot of non-science.  I still enjoy…"

"Michael, I see a clear distinction between science fiction -- Asimov, Heinlein, and Roddenberry's Star Trek -- and fantasy fiction -- which grew in popularity in the 1960s and has largely dominated ever since. What I call science fiction is…"

"I loved Science Fiction as a child, daydreaming about space travel adventures.  My Mormon indoctrination did not prohibit it, so I enjoyed it until about 30 years old, seeing every Sci-Fi movie, and reading many Sci-Fi books. After 30, I still…"

Michael Penn replied to Peter Kornis's discussion Science Fiction and Atheism
"I have loved science fiction my whole life but this started to change for me as I became atheist. I believe in nothing supernatural at all. There was a time when I did, but there is no evidence. In my case I was more into science fiction as a theist."

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

I am particularly interested in your story, realizing the conditions of Romania. Now you live in Israel, and I would like to learn about the country as you experience it. 

The Palestine/Israel war concerns me greatly. 

Please share your experiences, interpretations, and feelings to the level that is comfortable for you.
