^^^ Thanks for the link, but apparently Amazon mp3 downloads are only available in the US, not the UK.

I have purchased this now, and it really is a lovely piece of music. And so appropriate to a show discussing all about Sisko - I can almost imagine him noodling about on the piano in his father's restaurant, and this tune comes to him, like an inspiration from on high...

Anyway, I enjoyed the recent episode very much. On the two sides of the discussion I definitely come down on the non-religious side, but it is by watching and thinking about this show (and writing my fan-fics, which occasionally played with the same concepts) that I came to a somewhat deeper appreciation if some aspects of the spiritual experience (when I'm not being infuriated and appalled by the fundie whackjobs, that is).

I think it demonstrates one of the great things about DS9 as a show that you can even spend that whole time talking about the journey a single character takes. There aren't many shows where the characters develop and expand so much that it would generate such a discussion. But on DS9, almost every character does.

DS9 does make you think about everything from all sides of the issue and leave you to make your own conclusion all while doing it with respect; now that is class
