Re: ORV S2: All the World Is Birthday Cake

"It does not seem to me to be any more necessarily a matter of 'free thinking' to advocate that what we see around us sprung from nothing, than from something."

Very true.

"Free thinking" is simply about reaching our own conclusions rather than blindly accepting society's dogmatic claims.

The funny thing is that in present day western society, it often seems that the dogma regarding religion is neither theism or atheism. Rather, it is this silly "us vs them" mentality. This whole "science vs religion" thing, for example, is getting crazier every year.

Today, an actual "freethinker" would be a person who rejects this craziness. Whether they believe in a Creator is immaterial, as long as they embrace the quest for a better understanding of the universe and themselves.

Seems like a great premise for a Star Trek/Orville episode, doesn't it? Unfortunately, given Seth McFarlane's views on religion, there's no way this will happen.
