Something I find people of many faiths find troubling. That's one problem I have with science fiction.

Farscape is one of the very few that portrays religion in a beneficial light, especially thru Zhaan. -- "If the stars should appear one night in a thousand years, how would men believe and adore, and preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God!" - Ralph Waldo Emerson ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
