That certainly takes on the appearance of the supernatural, but it's all been explained with pseudoscience. i.e. the Prophets aren't providing precognition, they just exist on a non-linear plane. Yes, it's millions of lightyears more advanced than us, but it's not presented as supernatural.
Yeah it's definately a grey area. The writers and producers really shoe-horned in Roddenberry's take on religion into the concept of the prophets. That's a tough one that I don't really have a good answer for. Anybody else have any feelings on this one?
