Sci-fi Televangelism – Summary and Conclusions 

We have been reviewing a presentation called “Science Fiction: Televangelism for ET Religion” given by fellow science fiction author Dr. Michael Heiser gave  at the 2017 Roswell UFO Festival. Basically, Heiser has set out to demonstrate that sci-fi is isn’t just escapism entertainment but is “deeply theological.” Over the course of the series, we covered…

Alien Salvation: Answering A Cartoon Argument Against ETs

Read the Most Hated Book in Creationism
