Religious tolerance intolerance?

But that doesn't mean the end of relious debate; there are many different strains of religion among the modosophonts that are not concerned with the archailects, or sometimes incorporate the archailects as subordinate deities in a much larger theological belief system. There is plenty of room for theological strife in the Terragen Sphere, even most of it happens a little outside the region of direct influence of the archai.

Yeah I got that from reading the Codex and I think it's actually kind of cool. Just as a Gnostic Catholic, I would certainly incorporate the Archai into my belief system. God created the universe as is and may even be working through them at various points just as He works through people.

I think the whole idea of Archaitheology is a brilliant part of this setting as it seems completely natural. Rather than the "outgrown silly superstitions" thing Roddenberry was trumpeting, which had some rather insulting undertones to religious people.

I mean, for those of us here, who at least can educatedly fathom what these minds are capable of, they make what most conventional religions call "god-like" seem laughable by comparison!

So, religions or similar institutions forming around them, seems perfectly logical.
