GENE RODDENBERRY: PANTHEIST GURU

* * *

Was Gene Roddenberry a follower of the Pantheist tradition? Pantheism is the "belief that the universe and nature are divine." We've never heard of it -- who knew that Gene Roddenberry, a devout "humanist," followed this faith? Maybe he didn't. This vagueness doesn't stop the author from drawing you into a detailed episode-by-episode analysis of the Pantheist ideas found in Star Trek. This self-proclaimed "rational" religion must be hurting if they're taking on the difficult task of trying to recruit Trekkies. Beam me up, Oh Great One!
