lol. Nice post Jimi, nice post.
and you're more or less right about me with your quote. but that's not entierly my reason for finding fault in the force.
Ok, my reason for calling the force a "bad" pseudo religion is that the force seems to have no revlance to ANYBODY in the SW galaxy except for that one person in 6 billion who has a high midiclorine (however the heck you're supposed to spell it) counts.
And even for them the forces only pourpose for existing seems to be for granting these handful of a handful of a handful of people superpowers.
The force doesn't seem to have any guidelines showing people how they can live a better life, or even attain any kind of a spiritual enlightenment (although I suppose I could argue the same thing about Christianity). No messages such as "possesions are fleeting" just that there's a weird "force" everywhere, and if you're one of those VERY lucky one in 6 billion people with a lot of a special microbe in your blood, and you feel "it" you'll gain superpowers.
And that is why I call it a bad pseudo-religion.
