Wasn't Ro only established as an atheist in the novels? Given the spiritual theme of DS9 if Ro was casted I bet that never would've happened.
She was certainly fleshed out as an atheist in the novels, but it was an arguably valid extrapolation from a line in "The Next Phase." When they think they're dead, and Ro worries that she might be a ghost, or a borhyas, she admits that she never really believed in the stories her people told. If she doesn't believe in ghosts, then it's certainly possible and/or likely that she wouldn't believe in the Prophets either. Like the Andorian-four-sexes thing - it's not necessarily the only interpretation, but it's an acceptable one that gave the writers something interesting to work with.

TrekLit/DS9-R fans! Want a different vision of the Ascendant conflict and the DS9 time gap?

Read DS9 SEASON 10 and DS9 SEASON 11 !
