You do understand he was once approached and it was suggested that the show had a Christian Chaplin and he refused basically saying the show was not there for one religion but all of humanity.

Accepting diversity does not mean accepting every individual claim a human may make.

There are lots of people in my life who have held god claims to be true, the most important person in my life, my mom died this past March, she died a believer, but even she knew what I thought of her claims. Liking an individual or loving an individual does not mean you have to agree with everything they claim.

I most certainly value my fellow humans capability of compassion and empathy even that of believers, I simply doubt their claims as to where that empathy is coming from.

Roddenberry was a very compassionate man and had a great pulse of what humanity could be capable of if we wanted to be. But no, not even that proves one god over another, or that all gods are true equally. It simply was a great show.

Meh, Captain America's a monotheist too (in spite of the existence of aliens and sentient robots) so fuck-a-doodle-doo.
Religions were invented to impress and dupe illiterate, superstitious stone-age peasants. So in this modern, enlightened age of information, what's your excuse? Or are you saying with all your advantages, you were still tricked as easily as those early humans?

There is no better way to convey the least amount of information in the greatest amount of words than to try explaining your religious views.
