Battlefield Earth isn't deeply philosophical, certainly not in a religious way, it deals more with humanity itself, the ability to survive, the ability to overcome the seemingly impossible (don't want to give away spoilers, but maths).
If anything, it is a testament to why our species has endured as long as it has and conquered the natural world.
I hate scientology, I love Battlefield Earth.
