Skip to comments.The Star Trek Guide to Religions - Vanity

Ok, thought just crossed my mind concerning religion
Star Trek Series compared to religions
Star Trek: TOS (The Original Series) = Judaism The bedrock of Religion, all others are based off of it, is the Bible that all above it is based off of.
Star Trek: TNG (The Next Generation) = Catholicism Builds off the first series and adds a bunch of moral life lessons, can get a bit more preachy at times but a decent series.
Star Trek: DS9 (Deep Space Nine) = Protestantism Builds off the first two series is somewhat more serious about it in certain areas, there is more of an edge to it, doesn't take order from a HQ such as Rome or Star Fleet Command.
Star Trek: Voyager = Mormonism Started by wandering around in unknown territory in the Delta Quadrant / Utah lost most of the time and sometimes as irrational as Janeway, some good gems but really uneven.
Star Trek: Enterprise = Unitarianism A complete reinterpretation of several of the previous ones before it and boiled down to vanilla so much that it is a bunch of PC garbage that makes it bland as unflavored soy ice cream sound delicious, almost as fulfilling as drinking 8 pots of coffee and attending the taping of an infomercial.
Obviously, you didn't watch much past Season 1.
Firefly- Anglican. You can see something familiar in it that reminds you of some of the others but mostly people drink a lot. :->
Pssst.... They’re just TV shows.
Your idea is pretty cute, though.
I guess that would make “Babylon 5” Taoism, a lot of that yin/yang, light/dark references in the Vorlon/Shadow conflict.
When eighty as good you should look ...
Now here is something I cooked up using a STRONGS Concordance with the Superman Story:
Krypton (gr) The Secret Place
Jor-El (Heb) Archer of G-d
Kal-El (heb) Son of G-d, or Man of G-d
Lois (Fr) Warrior
Smallville (can anything good come from Nazareth?)
Metropolis(gr)The Great City (Jerusalem?)
Jor-El sends His Son Kal-El to Earth, from The Secret Place of the Most High (Krypton) where he is raised in a Small Insignificant Town. Kal-El takes on a Human Name and goes to the Big City to work towards a better world. For some reason, all of his friends and enemies have the initials L-L (El is the Hebrew word for G-d). His biggest enemy is Lex Luthor. (Lex is Latin for “Law” and “Luthor might be a reference to Martin Luther and the reformation.)
Funny thing is that the character of “Superman” was created by a Jewish Artist, based upon Nietzsche’s “Man and Superman” which also inspired Hitler.
This is a fun game! :-)
Back in the 19th Century, several people liked to play it and now we have a whole BUNCH of new religions! LOLOL!
Man and Superman is a play written by George Bernard Shaw.
Nietzsche’s sister Elizabeth was the one who created the Nietzsche/Nazi myth.
You can look both of those facts up.
so that star wars what? buddhism? shintoism?
Jedis seem a lot like Sikhs.
I’d say Star Wars is Taoism. You’ve got the ancestor reverence with the ghosts of Jedis past following you around, the whole yin-yang duality of the light and dark sides of the force, and the Jedi powers are like Chi energy manipulation.
