One of the themes of this site is that fiction is about our efforts to overcome our state of exile from the better world we know should exist. An obvious example of this precept is the s television comedy, Gilligan's Island, which tells a story much like Genesis, but one that is a farce rather than a tragedy. Gilligan's Island shows us a group of castaways who once lived in a paradise of consumer abundance known as America, with its world of hamburgers, television sets, bathtubs, and other instruments of fulfilled desire. In place of being exiled by a wrathful God, they go on a three hour tour and are lost in a storm.
