Re: The question of God or a higher power in ST

^I'm suggesting that the Prophets tend to imagine their relationship with Bajor differently than Bajorans do, and that in spite of their goodwill (and, in general, their good results), they still tend to be paternalistic. They don't see things in the same terms as Bajorans, and it's not clear that they believe that they need to. That's why she shift in Sisko's role, which I have illustrated rhetorically as becoming the emissary to the Bajorans, represented a challenge to their way of thinking and, possibly, a change in the way they relate to Bajor.
