Faith like a Sci-fi fan

As the author of Hebrews (not a debate for now) tells us " Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." (Heb 11:1) Anyone who has ever seen a Sci-fi programme I'm sure will understand this perfectly. Case in point: Stargate. There are currently two different Stargate series (although there is about to be 3 where I'm sure the pattern will continue): SG1 and Atlantis.

In SG1 there is a rather geeky Doctor, Daniel Jackoson who in the original film hooks up with a native girl on the planet he visits called Sha're. Now Daniel is a wonderful fellow but is socially awkward and wouldn't win a Male beauty contest. Sha're on the other hand is a stunner, intelligent, fun, etc and yet they end up together! This whole thing happens later where she gets possessed by an Alien but that's beside the point.

In Atlantis there is a rather similar Doctor, Rodney Mckay. Again a delightful fellow but also socially inept, not winning any beauty contest himself ends up with may attractive ladies including the stunning Doctor Jennifer Keller (M.D).

Now you must commend them for their faith. Maybe I am naive, maybe Sci-Fi Convos are where the totty is but in generally I doubt it. If only I could have faith like a Sci-Fi geek perhaps then I'd be the greatest man of God alive!

Till next time!
