Re: Religion & DS9

The writing sometimes suggested the Prophets were just aliens who rarely noticed anything going on with Bajorans.

Despite that, the Bajorans insisted on believing in them and quoting some religious ideas at every opportunity, which from a outsider's perspective, made them look childish and naive.

A good example of religion in Trek was the controversy between Kieko (and the Federation's) atheistic view and the Winn's view of what should be taught in a mixed school --science or religious views.

I had a feeling TNG would have steered clear of that and stay with "Who Watches The Watchers" as its controversial episode about religion.
