It's getting better all the time... (Destiny)

Fantasy codifies the ignorance that the human race had in the past.


This statement strikes me as every bit as wrongheaded as "video games cause violence."

I agree. There needs to be more on this. It's an interesting idea that I think has merit, but I'm not yet convinced.

I would say it's more about the characters and the plot with regard to what Cody is talking about, and I think that's simply a result of outmoded thinking. As others have said here, there are lots of aware authors out there that are doing some pretty cool stuff in fantasy that are a lot more forward-thinking than plenty of SF I've read.
