Why not I say. All forms of magic are the same at the core. I talk to something bigger than me, stuff happens or doesn't, I sleep better and don't worry so much. My personal form of magic comes in pints :)

I assume people know that the force and the religion of the jedi was deliberately  constructed and based by Lucas, on  human religions, with  their struggle between good and evil, for and in, human nature represented by the two sides of the force; just as the historical context was based on the roman republic versus empire

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.

The problem with the Jedi is almost every one of the most evil men in the Star Wars Universe's history was a Jedi, or a Sith, which are just Selfish Jedi. I'll maybe read up on their Beliefs before I comment cruelly on their religion.

I do consider myself an expert on SW, having seen all the movies, and read over 50 SW novels, and owning like 200 SW comics.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

So long as it doesn't degenerate into religious wars between the Jedi, Trekkies and Whovians I see no problem with it.

Personally if I had to draw my religious beliefs from a film I'd subscribe to Dudeism based on the Big Lebowski.

Life is the result of the struggle between dynamic opposites Form & Chaos, Substance & Oblivion, Light & Dark And all the infinite variations of Yin & Yang

I don't see any problem with. Most of the other religions are based off of fictions as well. So be it. Jedis are cool, mabey they should integrate martial arts into the religion. Heck it sounds like a lot of fun actually. My only problem with it is that I imagine there would not be a lot of females in the religion, but that's just a gues. ;)

That was the one element of the Star Wars series that I found least necessary and in fact a distraction from the main action.  The Force seemed to have no importance except in a few special sequences tacked on as though as an afterthought.  "The Force be with you," however, does somehow seem reminiscent of "The Lord be with you."

They are the satanists of the force.Just take a visual look at them as portrayed in star wars. :innocent: .

It's just as valid as any other religion. Myself I like the flying spagethi monster. Seems more believable... ;)

Really?.A meme invented in 2005 by a science teacher protesting Intelligent Design seems more believable? At best I think you mean they are equally believable.
