The topic of light vs. dark seems to be universal comprehendible to all and seems to be the universal theme that every religion have in common, more or less, despite the differences between the different religions concrete religious stories.
But I guess thats what we have jediism for
Also . Jedi FTW

I would disagree. For example I do not believe in the concept of light and dark in the context I believe you are trying to convey here.
By contrast (no pun intended), being afforded the benefits of being human on Earth in this time means we can be open to a larger range of the spectrum of being, we are able to be more coloured in that manner of speaking. As such it could be said that this is akin to a 'every colour' Light path. The trick is having and holding this path outside of the comfort and security of those affordances in being human here and now. Carrying the flame so to speak.

Many do yes, but my point is that not all do. For example true witchcraft, that practiced outside the yuppy white lighters, is not based in any sort of duality. I am not a believer in duality at all. I dont believe evil or good exist as a dichotomy. Energy is just energy. Its not white or black, dark or light, good or evil. There is no "darkness" as a form in anything we need to "avoid". There are just actions and consequences. that is all.
