A bit of a hot topic today – is there religion in your future?
Sci fi has a long and sketchy history of dealing with religion. In many stories of the future, religion fades away in the face of reason. In others, it becomes a driving force.
And yes, sometimes Sci Fi writers even create their own religions. And we all know how that ends.
So my questions today: As a writer, do you include religion in your sci fi, and if so, what’s it like in the future? Will our current religions continue to predominate, will they fade away, or will they be replaced by something new?
