Re: Why Not A Starfleet Ships Chaplain As A Main Character?
That's pretty much what I meant. It'll still throw a lot of belief systems into turmoil but they always adapt. I don't know if this is true or not, but didn't Catholicism even state recently that the acknowledge the possibility of life on other planets? I may be wrong, but I thought I heard that somewhere.
Regardless, religion is likely to exist into the future. Babylon 5 is actually a great example of spiritual diversity. Sure, there are big reveals about that through the series but no one is treated shoddily because of it.
Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
