    Yeah, but they're Welsh. Surely this fact takes any legitimacy away.

    10 years from now it will be as big as scientology. And probably just as ridiculed.

    At least they'll openly admit this one is fiction. Haha, but it's all good.

    So it's Yoda versus Xenu for intergalactic and religious supremacy?

    I guess it's too cold to make crop circles right now. They need something to pass the time.

    I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    Bah, concentrating to turn on a fan? I want to be lifting cars in the parking lot.

    And I want a GodForce-damned light sabre.

    Got to be better than the other church of sci-fi, scientology. ;)

    And those who mock the Jedi, will have their Dianetics book cut in half with a lightsaber.

    I think it's a great idea! "Sci-fi"religion can't be any worse than "supernatural"

    Supernatural forces were the fascination thousands of years ago and it gave all those culturally irrelevant religions people still won't shut up or stop fighting over to this day a way of suckering people in with the fear of what might happen after death if you don't think like they do.

    Plus, they could make May the 4th a bank holiday one day because of it :D

    If you know where to look, there are some pretty damned good semi-functioning lightsaber replicas on the market, albeit without the actual ability to slice anything.

    Too bad Jedi don't exist. It would be interesting to see how they would do in the middle east conflict. Also Klingons in the Middle East would be interesting along with the Borg, Sandpeople, Wookies, Vulcans, and some Stormtroopers.

    Why? I suppose they have as much chance of becoming ghosts as anyone else.
