Out of the Silent Planet is a poor attempt for Lewis keep his Christian beliefs relevant in the modern world - where it seems inevitable that other intelligent life will be eventually discovered.

It is sad to see him cling so desperately to his feeble beliefs and painful to watch him disparage scientific achievement though his misunderstanding of rationality and moral behavior.

Well, whatever makes you tick. Fact is, Lewis is one of the most accomplished and renowned writers of the 20th century, in the realms of fiction, fantasy, non-fiction, and religion. I don't see what qualifications you have to make a judgment of his relevance and beliefs.

Lewis once was an atheist. he converted to christianity under the guidance of J.R.R. Tolkien. Not everyone leaves God forever; sometimes prodigal sons return. By the way, Christianity explains all the ''scientific acheivement'' as well as the things that science cannot explain. be as cold and cynical as you want, but C.S. Lewis has saved many souls and enlightened many atheists.

it is not that he isn't writing about Christianity. because he sort of is. look into it more and allow yourself to have an open mind.

I might say that Lewis had more understanding of rational thinking and morals than you may ever claim.
