Have you ever heard of the Order of the Jedi Canada? It is the head of Jediism, a real religion of our world. Jediism is based on the moral beliefs of the Jedi of the Star Wars movies, and I think the Jedi of our world believe that the Force exists and that gives us a sense of morality and tells us what is right and what is wrong when our minds are at peace. I'm a practitioner of this religion, but I'm still a padawan and I still have much to learn. Who else have heard of this religion? who else practices it?

We say the Force is like the sun, it existed even before someone gave it a name. The Star Wars movies just gave name to the Force and the Jedi. I don't believe we can use the Force like in the movies, just that it exists.

Yeah, that actually makes more sense to me than some gods Again, I don't want anybody to be offended, just my own opinion. You know when you know that someone's watching you but doesn't make sound or you can't see anything, not even a shadow. That's a situation that I would think has something to do with something like Force... Of course only if there was someone watching

I'm not BS'ing anyone here, I'm a very loyal fan of SW. But I can kinda see how a religion can be founded around Jedi-ism. I mean you can convert the belief of karma, and aura's to be the force. Its actually kinda cool.

I think I have also heard that somewhere, too interesting, and I enjoy the star wars films too, but I never thought of the film as a religion though the philosophy of the films character's are fascinating but I just enjoyed star wars as a film and just really good entertainment.
