Now that's funny! Nicely done!

Why thank you!

And yes, I'd think that if you followed Zen Buddhism, you'd be pretty close to Jedi-ism ---- without the weird stuff.

Recognised by who and recognised where?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jediism

I mean, who do you NEED to recognize you, before you become a "valid" religion.

Wouldn't that essentially make it Zen Buddhism?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jediism

Jediism is a blend of Taoism and Buddhism.

Pretty close.

Actually, it is called a type of force, life force, also known as vril energy. Supposedly you can harness its powers through meditation, kundalini movement, and the chakras.

....I can't believe you actually related this to star wars dude. It'll be a big mistake once ppl like mattshark come along. You'll cope though. Try to come up with a better name for the "force" and "jedi".

Calling the kettle black eh?

I recall a few instances where you related your abilities to Naruto and Dragon Ball Z.

Particularly when you attempted "Biokinesis" on your eyes so you could become a "Sharingan." Whatever that is.

In my opinion, Star Wars has much more credibility that some anime.

OP, your heart is in the right place. I approve! :clap:

I'd say it was more influenced by Qabalah than anything else.

A religion is a "cultural system" and does not necessarily need to have any kind of deity, though it usually does.

As defined by Clifford Geertz. Not everyone agrees of course but I like what he has to say on the subject.

http://ssr1.uchicago.edu/NEWPRE/CULT98/Geertz1.html

Wiki disagrees but what does that matter - although

Religion is derived from the Latin religiō, the ultimate origins of which are obscure. One possibility is derivation from a reduplicated *le-ligare, an interpretation traced to Cicero connecting lego "read", i.e. re (again) + lego in the sense of "choose", "go over again" or "consider carefully".

Atheism is it's "cubby-hole" it is still not a religion.

Religion is the belief in and worship of a god or gods, or any such system of belief and worship

Yes, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice.

your an atheist if you don't believe in god(s). So Jedi, Buddhists, Scientologists are atheists. Technically.
