On religion, social networking and the Ultimate Conversation Killer.
"The really trippy part of this theory is that technologies only become obsolete when they’re replaced. Which means that perhaps something, some mental apparatus which is probably right under our noses already, is waiting in the wings to help us transition from this to… well, whatever comes next. Which is exciting and amazing and probably quite silly sounding, or at the least very sci-fi sounding, but ohhhhhboy when you’re half a bottle of wine down and wondering why the world feels like it’s pinging and twanging with the pent-up tension of something waiting to change, is a very seductive idea.”
In honour of the announcement of my forthcoming God is Dead comic, alongside the mighty Mr Alan Moore, I was interviewed about religion, technology and the fine old art of swearing.
Full confession: I was quietly and pleasantly tipsy at the time, so I went a little bit deeper into my increasingly fiddly views on religion than I probably should.
I will defend the “ultimate conversation-bomb” thing to death, though.
