Pop Culture & The Meaning of Life

Religion and Zombies

While I was in Florida over this past weekend the second season of The Walking Dead returned. If you know me then you know I really dig that show. Of course, I also like to filter some of the tougher questions of meaning and morality through pop culture.

That’s why I asked Rob Shep to take a look at something I wrote a few weeks back as I attempted to make sense of some modern day bigotry through the lens of zombie drama, a.k.a., zomdram.

If you’re into the sound of what I’m singing or like to pick the more philosophical side of my brain then please head over to Rob’s site and check out my article on Christians, Racism, and Zombies.

And even though I still think it’s a completely contrived and basically meaningless holiday compared to an anniversary or other personally meaningful day, go ahead and have yourself a Happy Valentine’s Day. Or don’t. I love you either way. Send Skittles.

  2. I was just watching that Bill Maher “Religulous” fauxumentary and he was talking about zombies. Weird.

  3. I just bought and quickly watched Season One of The Walking Dead. It is so good! Really liked your article on Rob’s site. BTW, I loved Quantum Leap, too. 🙂 To the new season!
