No different than any other religion. Someone makes it up, people follow it.

No more stupid than any of the other mainstream religions. At least those who tick Jedi for the most part know that it's a complete joke.


The point is that putting your religious affiliation as "none" would be more useful.

Lesson this one must learn. Fear leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering.

and suffering leads to trolling on neowin lol

Does "grow up" in your books mean "No fun allowed"

By any chance is this you?

Believing in a fictional book is also another stupid idea, but christians seem to do so!

And belieiving in some invisible guy who floats up in the sky isn't?

All religions are stupid but at least people who identify themselves as Jedi keep it to themselves and aren't ruining the planet like Christianity, Islam and Judaism.



The point is simple. The joke isn't funny anymore. It was funny when people did it a few decades ago, it isn't funny now. And arguably counter-productive.


As a side note, I'm completely non-religious and an atheist. All religions are equaly false in my view. It's just this joke isn't funny anymore. Religion info on the census is actually used for specific purposes. Putting joke religions is stupid.

You'll be pleased to know that the number of people claiming to be jedis more than halved since the previous census.

And as I said before, at least it's a harmless "joke". Organised religion on the other hand is the bane of the 'civilised' world, responsible for millions of deaths and unimaginable suffering. I'm not concerned about all the people identifying themselves as Jedi on the census - I'm concerned about all the people labelling themselves Christian, Muslim or Jewish.
