Science fiction will sometimes address the topic of religion. Often religious themes are used to convey a broader message, but others confront the subject head-on—contemplating, for example, how attitudes towards faith might shift in the wake of ever-advancing technological progress, or offering creative scientific explanations for the apparently mystical events related in religious texts (gods as aliens, prophets as time travelers, etc.). As an exploratory medium, science fiction rarely takes religion at face value by simply accepting or rejecting it; when religious themes are presented, they tend to be investigated deeply.

  • La religión, como un elemento más de la cultura humana, también se ha visto reflejada en la ciencia ficción, enfocada desde muy diversos puntos de vista según las intenciones de cada autor e incluso de sus propias creencias. Podemos encontrar autores que tratan la religión como una muestra cultural más, no diferente en esencia de cualquier otro elemento folclórico. Otros van más allá y enfocan la religión como un motor, un poder y político que rinde trabajo a quien la maneja. Finalmente, también existen autores con sólidas creencias religiosas cuya fe impregna sus escritos.

  • Science fiction will sometimes address the topic of religion. Often religious themes are used to convey a broader message, but others confront the subject head-on—contemplating, for example, how attitudes towards faith might shift in the wake of ever-advancing technological progress, or offering creative scientific explanations for the apparently mystical events related in religious texts (gods as aliens, prophets as time travelers, etc.). As an exploratory medium, science fiction rarely takes religion at face value by simply accepting or rejecting it; when religious themes are presented, they tend to be investigated deeply. Some science fiction works portray invented religions, either placed into a contemporary Earth society (such as the Earthseed religion in Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower), or in the far future (as seen in Dune by Frank Herbert, with its Orange Catholic Bible). Other works examine the role of existing religions in a futuristic or alternate society. The classic Canticle for Leibowitz explores a world in which Catholicism is one of the few institutions to survive an apocalypse, and chronicles its slow re-achievement of prominence as civilisation returns. Christian science fiction also exists, sometimes written as allegory for inspirational purposes. Orson Scott Card has criticized the genre for oversimplifying religion, which he claims is always shown as "ridiculous and false".
