I personally prefer Paolo Bacigalupi's The Windup Girl, or Connie Willis' Blackout, myself.  Herbert's Dune Chronicles were okay too.

sdp:  (Side issue with Iwantamotto. The death of Jesus was a timing issue, he had to die on Passover. At the right time, he greased all the wheels).


I understand that's what the authors came to conclude, since they have to explain why Jesus just didn't "save" us to begin with.  The Angel of Death passed over Hebrews in Egypt.  Well, God ended up killing them all off anyway aside from a few youngun's here and there.  Jesus "saved" us from death, and God's still mad.  One wonders why the job position of Messiah is even available.


non_croyant:  Interesting that you guys are discussing the topic in earnest.


LOL, well, if you're bored enough to keep making threads with no point, we're bored enough to answer 'em.  :P

While I can certainly understand the appeal of the Harry Potter stories and films, they never really clicked with me, so to speak.


When it comes to Satan's servants, my personal favorite is a little ole rock n' roll  band called Black Sabbath. Cool

Good to see you again Davelaw.  I am kicking myself for giving this thread the wrong title.

The Harry Potter books are fairly clearly influenced by Christian mythology in the same way as the Narnia books. Now, that doesn't mean you have to be a Christian to enjoy them (Harry Potter or Narnia), I enjoyed both of them.


Hey NC, good to see you.
