Ronald Moore is a two-time Emmy Award-nominated American screenwriter and television producer best known for his work on Star Trek and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica miniseries and television series, for which he serves as developer, writer and executive producer.
From a May 2008 interview with Wired Magazine
Wired: There's a lot of religion on the show. Are you religious?
Moore: I was raised Catholic, and I'm a recovering Catholic now. I became interested in various Eastern religions, and now I've sort of settled into somewhat of an agnosticism and sort of a general interest in the subject.
