Abstract.

The cultural construction of American societal responses to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and terrorism is addressed. The use of metaphors of war, survival, extinction, and of those related to God in public narratives is analyzed. Issues of gender, sexuality, money, and power are also discussed within the context of the religion-science dialogue. Suggestions are made about a possibility for a global ethic of survival based on an ethic of care.
