Spock on God by fiskefyren Spock on God by fiskefyren
This was supposed to have been quoted in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” (the first Star Trek movie) but was left out due to the sensitivity of the subject (censorship makes people dumb and ignorant).

Good old Spock with his Vulcan logic, it never gets old, even if he does.

Not a big Star Trek guy, but this is an amazing quote. Totally with Spock.

Your picture of Spock is of him in the '60s TV series, and he never said these words then.  Even if you'd shown him in his "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" uniform, it wouldn't be right to suggest he'd spoken these words because, in fact, he never did.  This image gives a false impression of Spock, who was, yes, an atheist, but he was never hostile toward religion or religious people and he never denigrated their beliefs.  You're putting words into Spock's mouth in order to enlist him in a rather unpleasant attack on religion - an attack that I don't think he would've approved of.  BTW, a lot of religious people love "Star Trek."  Additionally, I don't think anyone 'censored' the screenplay for "Star Trek: The Motion Picture."  If the screenwriter removed from his work the words you attribute to him, then he did so for his own artistic reasons, such being that  these words would've been outside Spock's character - simply put, Spock never would've uttered them.

It was the best "WTF" picture I could find of him :) I'm well aware it wasn't from the movie.

Hm? I'm fairly sure Spock was an Agnostic, it's the only thing that would make logical sense.

Spock is a man of reason, understanding and science, so obviously he would have problems with faith and religion that offers no logical arguments or any sort of evidence.

I'm not putting words into his mouth, this actually stands in the script for the movie.

Not true, it was taken out because the vast majority of Americans are Christians, so they just censored their own movie, which is a real shame.

You should very much like someone who is in denial, are you by any change a Christian? You sure sound like one with all the butt hurt, I'm sorry but this is the reality.

I think Friendly Robin is right.  First, there's a scene in one of the 1960s episodes in which Spock says he believes in no deity - that does sound like atheism.  Secondly, if Spock never spoke the words in your piece and they didn't appear in the movie - they were, by your own admission, removed from the script - then you really are putting words in his mouth.  Third, if the owners of the script, Paramount Pictures in this case, edited their own work to make their character as appealing as possible in order to sell the most movie tickets possible, then that choice on their part would simply be an exercise in business logic, not censorship.  Fourth, where did you hear that these words were ever in the script in the first place?  It seems hard to believe that any of Paramount's screenwriters would have had Spock say something so totally out of character, so unlike him, so unlike anything he'd ever said in any "Star Trek" scripts before or since "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" was released.  And finally, your conclusion about "the reality" Friendly Robin's perspective is dubious at best and foolishly immature to say the least - it's irrelevant whether he or she is a Christian or not, and any reasonable person would find your demeanor in this exchange distasteful.

WOW... you really are in denial... you shouldn't be a Christian by any change? I've done nothing beside informing you of the truth but you don't seem to like the truth, which is pretty normal for a Theist (the complete denial of reality). And who the fuck cares about my "demeanour"? You simply don't like facts and I won't sugarcoat reality so it's more pleasing to you.

I have seen every single original "Star Trek" episode, and I don't recall Spoke ever making this speech.  Which episode does it come from?  Exactly?

You should read the description my friend, it'll answer all of your questions :)
