Religious texts? Edit

Why is the United States Constitution (Omega IV) a Religious text? it is a legal document even for the Omega IV it was a law document granted it was a sacred texts but not a Religious one 19:46, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

  • The easiest to explain it is that the Yang's had lost almost all of their civilisation in their war with the Kohms, the only thing that they were able to keep after being defeated was the remnants of their constitution, something that gave them a cultural base while being oppressed. In situations like that, text-no matter what it is-usually becomes more and more serious to the population as the years pass(and remember, the Omegans live for 1000 years roughly which leaves a LONG time for dissembling)until it's original meaning is lost and the tales told about it being 'important' become one with 'divine'. It's either that or some ham-fisted way that Roddenberry was trying to pump up an 'America is the best' attitude in his show. Lightningbarer (talk) 22:10, January 5, 2014 (UTC)
