Why must it end? I know we're getting a bit off topic, but those who have faith do not always use it to gain power. Fanatics who abuse their faith, can and have for power. But there are those who do not abuse their faith in that regard. They still put their trust in something which may or may not exist. Even with scientific fact, people of a religious faith will not accept it. Hence the arugements that continue about creation versus evolution, which continue to this day. You cannot simply dismiss all faith, regardless of your beliefs. Because not everyone can share your opinions. I understand your point, but I'm also showing the counter to that. Anyway, let's be careful how we discuss this. We don't want this to become something that is more fitting for the Senate forums than for here. As it is in regards to Star Wars, a religious type faith cannot be dismissed by the people who live within the Republic. Especially the Jedi and Sith. The Force has proven time and again that it is more than just power. In Star Wars, you have both the fanatic who abuses it and the non-fanatic, who seeks to understand it's divine mysteries. Hence Qui-gon learning how to become a ghost and Yoda admiting that there must be more to learn.
