02/23/2007: "a letter"
i will start off by saying that yes i am an atheist. But i have nothing
against religion. Some of my best friends are religious, be it Christian,
Jewish, Muslim or Hindu, and i respect them for this. I only have one
problem with religion. And that is when you interfere with other people's
What is so bad about star wars? It was written and created by George Lucas,
a Jewish man so it cannot be a film against God. The only possible thing you
can take offence to is anything you may feel it says about Jesus (the one
thing that separates Christianity from Judaism). But why is this so?
Also you claim in your video that the whole star wars world is not real, it
does not exist. But i could equally say that God is not real. You have about
as much prove for God as i do for Yoda!
Another thing to add is that no on (to my knowledge) take Star Wars as
seriously as you make out. It is true that in the UK so many people put down
'Jedism' on the national census that it almost became a tick box on the next
census. I know a great number of people who did this, but they did this as a
joke. They were all Atheists or Agnostics who thought it would be funny. And
it was! This is because they have a sense of humour, unlike you!
You can go ahead thinking that i will go to hell because i fail to recognise
Jesus. But if you do then i shall condemn you to hell for failing to
recognise people's free will to watch what they choose and think what they
choose. What gives you the right to judge me for not believing in something
that is not emirically verifiable (...reach for the dictionary).
I even attended my friends Bar Mitzvah a few years ago. When passages of the
Torh were being read out i still believed that there was no God. But i kept
it to myself. I saw that it made the people in the room happy to believe in
God. Much like it may make people happy to believe in the force. Just leave
them alone. They are doing you no harm. Mabye God doesn't want you to save
these people like you so claim on your website. Mabye he should get off his
arse and do it himself!
