    Do you like that the writers tied the prophets into the whole series. I thought it was interesting how they showed that a whole society could base its beliefs on prophets that were actually wormhole aliens.

    It makes you think..

    What if jesus was really just a martian

    I think the point of the show is that they were real "gods", and everybody else just called them "wormhole aliens" because they didn't know any better.

    Yeah, but will you admit that the term "God" is a bit relative.

    Perhaps they are just a highly advanced species and to you, their powers seem godly.

    I'm sure our technologies today to the people on Earth during the dark ages would appear "God-like"

    The Prophet did say that they were of Bajor, so they did advance into that state.

    I really liked the idea, I think it was to show that gods can come in all shapes and forms, and they don't nessecarily have to be like the conventional Christian God.

    the prophets were strange creatures, but very powerful...godlike.
