First post...yay! Get excited!
I don't know much about science-fiction to be honest, but I sure do know a lot about religion. I'm hoping to discover a new perspective of religion from an area that I know little about. I also am looking forward to being introduced to new media that hold religious themes behind the sci-fi. I really simply enjoy all things religious.
I would paticularly really like to delve into the movie Avatar. I caught many religious themes throughout the movie, some of which I personally greatly relate to. I'm very excited to discuss Avatar further and see if perhaps the religious undertones aren't a reason for its huge success. Just a thought but I'm curious as to the effects of religious undertones in science-fiction movies on the general population. Did most people catch all the religious mumbo-jumbo? or were most just enjoying a good flick? Just some randomness.
