“I believe…I believe I haven’t seen everything, I don’t know. It’s funny, isn’t it? The things you make up, the rules. If that thing had said it came from beyond the universe, I’d believe it. But before the universe? Impossible. Doesn’t fit my rule. Still, that’s why I keep traveling. To be proved wrong.”
The Doctor has taken on religion, faith, and belief several times in the run of the show. We’ve even seen the Doctor become a religion in and of him/herself. Underneath it all, we recognize that the desire for faith, something to believe in is…human.
Join us as we discuss our own approaches to faith, what it’s like to be a minority in religious spaces, and what the Doctor teaches us about the humanity of belief.
