You disagree with my point of Lucas promoting an agnostic agenda, ergo, the opposite of this would be that he's promoting a specific religion.

But he said that's not was he's about. Atheism and Agnosticism got a real shot in the arm after World War II, particularly during the drug and free love movements of the 60's and 70's. Lucas himself said that he was attempting to be as inclusive as possible while still promoting the idea that there is a God or Supreme Being out there somewhere; argue that point with him.

Please tell me you're being this dense deliberately, just to work me up.

Please. It would give me some faith in humanity again.

To the more important point first: You haven't had faith in me for a long time and there is nothing I can do to rectify that; the rest of humanity is cattle.

The only one being dense here is you. You won't admit to any particular point, yet you tell me mine is invalid. So if I'm wrong, what is the correct conclusion then? Surely you must know since you have argued the point thus; henceforth, enlighten us that we may be all the better for it. Do you really want to live in a world where the people who surround you are ignorant when you have the power to educate?

Please, schpydurx, step back and look at what you're arguing about. You're trying to pick a fight with me about my thoughts on the religious convictions behind Star Wars - which I haven't stated, and have absolutely no desire to discuss right now. How does an offer to help you analyse your sources equate to whatever you feel me to be arguing?¹ You're sounding positively delusional, and that makes me sad, because I KNOW you're an intelligent and thoughtful person. I KNOW you're capable of better than tossing non sequiturs into my lap. And no, I'm not referring to your religious convictions as "delusional". You're reading things into my comment that I didn't convey at all, and that's what's worrying me.

Your beliefs are your own business, but your comments have led me to believe that you're operating at a level of delusion - more to the point, a lack of reading comprehension - that disappoints me.

¹ Determining the bias (or otherwise), of your sources, regardless of how much you might agree or disagree with them, is an essential part of responsible journalism, and I can't believe you'd reasonably deny that.
