Recently, I had a religious debate with a Jehovah Witness. During the debate, I argued that it was possible for anyone to claim the existance of something and begin a religion based on it. The usual response when I say that, is that while that is true, they are fooling themselves. However, this time the response was a surprise to me.
JW: "Yes. And, actually, I recently met someone who told me her son was a Jedi."
JW: "No, seriously! I thought it was a joke too at first, but it turns out to be a real religion."
I thought, perhaps, that they were just pulling her leg. Or, perhaps, that she was playing along with my comments. However, I was curious, so I decided to look it up, only to discover that it really does appear to be a real religion. No, seriously! There were LOADS of results that came up when I searched for "Jedi religion" on the internet.
"The Jedi Church believes that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together. The Jedi religion is something innate inside everyone of us, the Jedi Church believes that our sense of morality is innate. So quiet your mind and listen to the force within you!"
"The Jedi Church recognises that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together, and accepts all races and species from all over the universe as potential members of the religion."
Above taken from here.
So, there you go. There really is a Jedi religion. It just goes to show... You really can start up a religion if enough people believe in the existance of something.
