We are blessed to have keynote speakers who are authorities on the Christian response to the sci-fi/fantasy genres: Metropolitan Sava of Pittsburgh, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, and Dr. Thomas Bertonneau of S.U.N.Y in Oswego, NY.

Between keynote presentations, participants will have the opportunity to attend small group presentations on Christian themes found in a specific book, movie or television show. A complete list of presenters and topics will become available at a later date. Stay tuned!

I am peripherally involved in Doxacon Seattle, since the sponsoring parish is mine. ;D


Do let me know if any of you are attending so that we can make sure to meet up.

Oh man, if I mentioned this to my wife, I'm pretty sure she would think all hope is lost for me.  :laugh:
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I never heard of this before two days ago, and since then I've run into three references to it.

The first reference, which inspired many lols, was an article entitled "25 things wrong with the American Eastern Orthodox Church."
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

As funny as it is, I'd probably show up if it were anywhere near me. I wonder if they tried to get Abp. Seraphim Sigrist involved- he seems to be the only Orthodox hierarch, in English anyway, who's published a book about connections between Orthodoxy and fantastic literature.

I think calling oneself a "geek" in this age is much too safe. It has a certain post-Edict of Milan ring to it. The Christians who endured pagan persecution had scars to show for it once it stopped; how many of these "geeks" endured swirlies or had their D&D books confiscated and burnt as "satanic"? I fear the true geeks must depart this soft geek-friendly life and find new deserts of social alienation.

The mainstream commercial popularity of fanfiction and cosplay (and the mere existence of the latter) are manifestations of just such a decadent trend.

The true geek ascesis (or is it asgeeksis) is finding new pastimes so esoteric and impenetrable that no one, and certainly not girls, would even think to engage in them, let alone develop them.

Black Widow and Elektra

In which the two Orthodox anti-heroines have to team up to protect the Patriarchs of Constantinople and Moscow from the avenging Baarlamite Clan, which seeks to substitute them for their own moles who would them tell the monks to pray for Project Florenza not knowing that with this they would be powering the 666 engine with the very energies of God, thus allowing the Infernal Realm to come to Earth under the domain of the Barlaamites.

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.
