One doesn't have to be a member of a church in order ot be of a
devout faith. The belief that demons are associated with sulphur
smells and that "good" entities like saints, the Virgin Mary,
etc., are associated with pleasent smells such as roses, is very
widespread.

I beg to differ. From your comment it appears as if you are the
one reyling on stereotypical concepts as well as our own current
state of technology. If you could only appreciate the vast
distances of deep space then you just might come to the
realization that deep space belongs to the machines, as in
advanced A.I., and not fragile, mortal, organic beings.

A "manafactured organic being", such as to produce a workforce,
may have little to no use in deep space. However, if an advanced
A.I. were to begin to operate in our solar system or on our
planet it may decide to use our DNA and/or tissues to create a
workforce to assist it in the achievement of it's goals. Any
such beings would need to possess cybernetic implants, as in be
cyborgs, so that the A.I. could manipute or control the beings.
In effect, these beings would be extensions of the A.I.
