Science Fiction: Advantages

The science-fiction genre is much like the technology it focuses on. It has definite drawbacks and many potential dangers. But science fiction also has benefits as well:
  • We are reminded that technology has much potential—both for good and for evil—but that technology itself is neutral; the use of technology is what makes it good or bad. 
  • We increase our scientific knowledge, which helps us to better understand and appreciate the complex universe God has created. 
  • We get the opportunity to explore what makes us human.
  • Perhaps most of all, science fiction challenges us to push our faith to the logical end. This genre pushes us to make sure our beliefs are so solidly grounded that they still apply even in the most extreme and unlikely of situations.
