The atheists' colony on Kepler-22b, more often referred to as the "Settlement," is a colony built by atheist-programmed androids Mother and Father, with the intention of raising human children away from the influence of the Mithraic, a radical religious faction dedicated to the sun god Sol.
After Earth was torn apart by religious differences and the human race teetered on the edge of extinction, an atheistic android architect sent two of his creations, Mother and Father, to start a peaceful, godless colony on the planet Kepler-22b. Mother and Father attempted to raise six human children, but only one survived, the other five succumbing to the effects of the planet's radiation. Mother then kidnapped five Mithraic children from the Heaven's Ark to fill the void of those she lost, and forcibly converted them to atheism.
