I was working on the Traveller post Justice on the Frontier, when I was struck with an amusing realization: I’m confident that the cyborgs and genetic constructs of the future will be worshiping the God-Man, Jesus Christ. For one thing, atheistic cultures have a hard time with reproduction, personal responsibility, self-discipline, living communities, or an expansive vision of the future.
The Race, The State, The Party, The Leader, The People… these idols just don’t make the cut, long-term.
Merry Christmas…. now, and thousands of years in the future.
(A.k.a, long after the Tolerant Ones have been forgotten dust.)
