What do you guys think of the religion of Jedism? Now obviously for the vast majority of people who use it as there religion it is a joke, a way to poke fun at governments for including religion as criteria on forms and such. I am sure there are people who take it seriously and all that but with core tenents as
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no death, there is the Force.
Really who cares. It is already the best religion out there in that regard.
But what I want to know is what do you guys think about atheists listing them selves as Jedi's? Does this hurt the atheist movement by reducing the number of atheist on statistics and such things. In England and wales it is the 5th biggest religion in the country beating religions such as Judaism and Buddism. Does this hurt atheist political power? Less people check themselves as atheists so the group appears smaller.
Personally I quiet like the idea, it just shows how silly the entire idea of religion is. Something which came from a movie and quiet evidently is not anything more than what it seems must be taken as seriously as christianity if there are enough people claiming to follow it despite most just taking the piss.
