For those of you interested in the dialogue between science and religion, Guy Stewart has an interesting post that’s not so much about whether alien life exists (and can or can’t exist theologically), but what kind of alien life might exist. Everybody thinks in terms of a human-sentience equivalent when this debate comes up — and believe me, it’s a perennial favourite among sci-fi writers of a religious persuasion — so I found this refreshing.
Also, I confess to still not being back up to speed from the killer-headache-killer-housewifing stuff. The actual blog posts will return with an ambushy vengeance when you and I least expect it, most likely.
Until then, I’m going to curl up in a blanket and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Hmph, so there, evil minor illness.
