Re: What kind of fan are you?

You're right, Masao. And your way of avoiding conflict is the better way. I plead guilty to jumping the gun to attack points of view with which I disagree. And yet, like I said in the Chronology thread, in the end, it's all a matter of taste. Which says something about religion that many would find profoundly disturbing.

There is a website (whose name escapes me at the moment) where members contribute to the creation of a community-edited sci-fi future history. It's carefully wrought and hews close to what is scientifically plausible. Their scenario has the entertainment phenomenon that is Star Trek splitting into various "mythologies" that eventually evolve into literal faiths. It's fascinating and makes the point that what is like a religion might in fact be a religion in the making.
