I Find Your Faith Disturbing

Jeremy Smith came across a sticker that took a phrase from Star Wars in what was intended to be an atheistic direction: In Star Wars: A New Hope, Darth Vader says “I find your lack of faith disturbing” to a skeptic of the Force. Jeremy Smith finds a more positive interpretation of the phrase: religious faith should [Read More...]

Use the Force, Isaiah!

I liked this Biblical parody of the well known meme-image that aims to infuriate nerds. It works just as well. If you are a Biblical scholar, or just someone who knows the Bible well, did it make your head explode? From Cake or Death   [Read more...]

Beware of God

I presume that this sign is intentional and not a spelling error: From This Isn't Happiness, HT Jeff Carter on Facebook Gods were, and then later a single God was, thought to be capricious and terrifying in ancient times. The divine was thought to be, or later to be expressed through, what we today call [Read More...]

If Darth Vader Had Become an Evangelical Christian

Jedi Jesus and Jedi for Jesus

I recently shared a photo of a display outside a church, as an example of how not to evangelize Jedi. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways for Christians to connect to Jedi and the wider Star Wars crowd. Around the web, I discovered today, there are a surprisingly large of depictions of “Jedi Jesus” [Read More...]

Blasphemy Against the Sith?

Leah Libresco has a post about the nature of blasphemy, in which she shared this image, which I also found shared today on the Atheist Revolution blog : In her post, Libresco asks whether it is possible to commit blasphemy if you are not first convinced of the holiness of that which you then in insult.

Do I Look Suspicious?

Just because you’ve seen Sith wearing hoodies, like Darth Maul or my old apprentice (before he ended up in a full-body armor suit that doesn’t really go with a hoodie) doesn’t mean that you should discriminate against everyone whom the Force is strong with. Some of us are just ordinary Jedi, trying to go about [Read More...]
