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.

Even within the areas that are directly within the influence of the archai, I imagine vigorous religious debate is both possible and perhaps even encouraged. What isn't possible is acting against anyone for having different beliefs. Not just in religion, but in any aspect of life that isn't directly against the law of the ruling transapient. Do what thou wilt, as long as you don't hurt anyone is probably the norm in many places.

If you don't like how your neighbors live you can choose to not socialize with them - but you can't do very much else. This assumes you care, since the archai likely create societies in which people generally aren't overly bothered by differences. A lot of societal problems probably stem from fear - and modosophonts in the Civilized Galaxy generally have very little to be afraid of.
