I have been thinking about this, and I haven?t seen this thread before. Do you think that the mythology has affected religion in any way? Has it affected you personally in your views of a higher power or whatever? I was raised Christian but now as an adult I find myself drawn by religious teaching that speaks of a higher power as more obtuse and less patriarchal. More ?FORCE? less ?Holy Trinity.? I know that the concept of The Force is similar to Buddhism, I don?t think of myself as a convert from or too any religion but I think that my current religious concept was effected by the original trilogy.
