Spotted on Pharyngula’s always interesting blog. Apparently some sneaky Church of England vicars lazed away a boring conference by watching episodes of Doctor Who, and pretending to study the good Doctor’s never ending fight against evil. Their excuse was to contrast recurring episode themes with classical christian themes of good, evil and whether, even if the devil has the best mp3’s, evil people can be redeemed and get to heaven. I suspect it was really one of the usual gimmicks to make religion appear to be sexy. Wonder why there’s no mention of this fact in UK news source?
I’ve got to say I’m curious to what they made of the fact that the devil was some weird alien who lived on some ancient planetoid orbiting a black hole.
