The paralyzed imagination of the theist

Theists have a paralyzed imagination: imaginary things have been imagined for them, and their own imaginations can imagine nothing more or less, but only what has already been prepared for them - ready-made thinking devoid of authenticity, only copied and memorized without a single original thought necessary to fit the prefabricated mold of what is supposed to pass for a mind.

I don't know. Like Steph, I also liked SF. And music, not just pop/rock, but I listened to classical, jazz, big-bands (thanks dad), and blues, like Pinetop, Howlin' Wolf, etc. Also read poetry and classics, like Shakespeare (really had to read that carefully and closely, and then had difficulty, but I persevered), Plato, etc., all while still active in church. But I must confess, with a couple exceptions, no one else among my peers did. They just seemed superficial. Most acquantiences of mine still do. They can tell me about Paris Hilton, but not about Schrodinger's cat. Exasperating.

Your description fits the extremists, but most religionists occupy the muddy middle-ground, usually choosing the happy bits and ignoring the mythology.

So that is why religious girls dont like sci-fi!
