Bioshock & Religion: A Look At Extremism

“No gods or kings, only man” – Andrew Ryan

This is probably one of the most quoted of Andrew Ryan’s thoughts, and rightly so. It encapsulates the essence of his line of thinking. He sought to create a society free from religion – among other things – and aptly named that place Rapture. This society would focus on the abilities of the individual, and they should reap what they sow. As anyone who visited Rapture will know, that did not go well. Seeing it from a religious (Christian) perspective, Rapture lost its morals as soon as it let go of religion. Without religion’s guidelines and messages of humility, modesty and compassion, Rapture was doomed to fail. Well, then the opposite should work: A city built on Christian values. As Bioshock Infinite showed us, that did not work out either. (2K Games, BioShock: Infinite, Irrational Games, Ken Levine, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
