Of course its okay to portray a man as god and worship him especially if he’s white and has scientific imperialism to back him.
Lets count the many times the Doctor gets practically prayed and bowed down to in his last two incarnations
Dear writers and atheists producing Doctor Who, you’re not doing anything revolutionary or new by removing one patriarchal god’s religion (crosses and cock) and replacing it with another (science and cock).
In the hands of man’s interpretation and limited understanding, both are flawed. And certainly nothing to be worshiped.
The chief issue I take with atheism — that is, “atheism” here meaning the most common patterns of atheist discourse, not all the individuals themselves (although straight, White, and male atheists are particularly susceptible) — is that it does not oppose oppression. It opposes theism, and in doing so, it uses oppression and the suffering of others as a rhetorical tool for a smear campaign without actually showing real compassion or support for the targets of violence.
*This was meant to be a much longer post on a list of Doctor Who cons, but I thought I’d cut to the point for this one.
