The thing about Star Wars is that it replaces genuine religion with the mostly anthropomorphic, non-deity universal power that is transcendental but not quite all-knowing or all-powerful. So it sort of contains elements of The Supreme. It appeals greatly to people who find it difficult to stomach a supreme, personal creator. In that sense it feels like a bastardization of UB themes - roughly anyways.

Yes, some Star Trek episodes were distinctly hostile to religion in any form, distinctly materialistic. But I remember one episode where "The Son of God" was in the end hailed as the prime driver of advanced development on a planet.

I fully agree with you, Barry. The time has not yet come!

Greetings emmawatson009,

Welcome to the forum. I see you are the newest member. Having just joined myself, less than two weeks ago, I'd like to say it's good to see another new person here. I'm assuming you are a woman, by your name. There does not seem to be many women posting here. I hope that will not intimidate you. It would certainly add balance to hear from more women.

In Friendship,
Rexford
