Is Neo the Messiah?

The Christian Science Monitor has an interesting article about religion in science-fiction, especially the Matrix movies. It’s interesting to me because I’ve seen similar connections myself for a long time. Back in college, I wrote a paper about how similar the Luke Skywalker character was to the archtypeal hero from myth. It’s a short hop from that to the archtype of the messiah. The interesting thing to me, is that this: a) appeared on the Christian Science Monitor and b) was mentioned on Slashdot. Religion comes to Slashdot. I think it must be a sign of the end times.
