May I add the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica to the list of shows exploring myth and spirituality. I appreciate understanding spirituality through popular media and like that recently there has been more time given to non-Christian options. However, I think that where spirituality is explored, atheism always gets a bad rap. It seems to me (and admittedly, maybe I'm watching the wrong shows) that an absence of connection to a higher power is always interpreted as bad, amoral, or chaotic. Where are the characters who are balanced and rational and seeking to better themselves and society without "finding God?"
