Species and their Gods

by K'arn Hollowbeak, Avian scholar

After the dawn of FTL space travel, when many species began to co-habit, or engage with one another, the scope for studying theology grew exponentially. It is endlessly fascinating to learn about other species' approaches to spirituality, and how they vary.

The Apex, for instance, worship no god, with their leader Big Ape having all but achieved deification through demand and control. The Hylotl worship Nature in all its facets, their gods lacking anthropomorphism and instead being very much conceptual.

The Glitch speak of their Creator Species, an unknown progenitor race who the robots regard with awe. The Florans seem to worship no god, but make reference to a Light Lord, a being who came from the stars that enlightened them. This, perhaps, is the closest to our Kluex. Then there are the humans.

Humans worship many gods, and often this method of worship brings the species into conflict with one another. An outsider can see the similarities between the factions, but the humans seemingly cannot.

What is also unusual about human belief is that their gods seem to exist based on supposition and rumour, rather than any factual evidence. To worship beings so removed, so speculative, seems entirely alien to me.
