But many go on to ask, ‘Why would God go to all the trouble of creating billions of galaxies and stars?’ Apologist John Whitcomb writes: ‘It must be recognized … that it required no more exertion of energy for God to create a trillion galaxies than to create one planet’. 3 Isaiah 40:28 says; ‘… the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not grow weak nor weary …’. Objectives of the course: 1. to understand the history of science fiction literature, its techniques and conventions, and the main trends and themes explored by science fiction writers, 2. to read science fiction, 3. to analyze and explicate science fiction texts, 4. to recognize, distinguish, and evaluate the essential characteristics of science fiction through intelligent discussion of plot, theme, characterization, point of view, style, setting, scientific content, and verisimilitude, 5. to write essays of literary analysis which demonstrate the following qualities: controlling purpose, clear focus, adequate development, logical organization, and use of textual details to support purpose.
