So maybe we should make an exception for religions and politics that exist in the Star Wars Universe?

Eh I would still use caution on this. I would say as long as you keep it to the Philosophy trying to avoid any Theology?(This of course it a whole different argument on how exactly to do that).  But it still might show favoritism to those who follow that religion.  I would make one those voting threads about it and let the forum decide on this one issue?

I would like to discuss different people's interpretations of just what the Force means to them, but I'm not so sure some could manage to keep their own personal beliefs out of it, so I'm wary of allowing it here.  Although, I'm pretty sure people discuss the politics in Star Wars on this forum pretty freely already without any discord.

I've had a few conversations about the Force that had to stop because of this rule. So I know what you mean.

Agreed. It helps make the Forums a better place if certain topics aren't talked about.

New guy here. I'm still cruising around the forum reading and reading. It's vast! I haven't seen any rules so far regarding threadromancy but I'm coming across old stuff and wondering to post or not to post. Seen as this is pinned I'm gonna go for it...

In 2001 in the UK there was a census. The laws regarding census information is that if there are 10,000 people or more claiming to be of the same religion then it will legally be recognised by the state as a religion. 390,000 people declared their religion to be Jedi making it the 4th largest religion in Great Britain.

After the census data had been collected and processed the Office of National Statistics (a government body) later released the figure stating "390,000 Jedi there are."

 Cheesy

Quite right.

I was one of those jedi/Sith  Grin

Just as I was in the 2011 census(decades long consistency).  Tongue

Unfortunately we dropped a few places in the championship table & no longer beat some of the major religions.   Huh

Lets hope for a resurgence next season & perhaps a chance at the 2021 play-offs.

Hehehe

That'd be sweet. I was looking on Wikipedia and there's an MP who since then announced Jedi as his religion as he was being sworn in. Anything is possible when the force is involved.

I read a paper one time on the history of a popular religion. It was spreading slowly slowly until the Romans took it on and it became what is referred to as a 'fighting religion' ie a book in one hand and a sword in the other. The rate that it spread tripled in a matter of decades. Can you imagine 390,001 saber wielding Jedi running loose converting the masses? We'd be numero uno in no time.

Given the recent mandate, perhaps the thread title should be updated to include "No dating/romance"

I'm trying to avoid making it a hard and fast rule.  For now, let's just avoid creating entire threads dedicated to those kinds of topics Wink
