I was trying to find this website when I came across becometheforce.com and I want to know whether this is another type of Jediism, another site for this religion or just mocking this religion. I would find it very useful if anyone were to help me with finding out which. Thank you.

In one of the teacher introductions, she explains that they used to be one and the same. Apparently there was a rift at some point, hence the two sites.

There's a bunch of different Jedi groups, and most of them share similarities and members. They also have key differences. Not all are religious, some engage with Jedi as a philosophy rather than a faith. Others have stringent training standards, and others aren't as serious. There's different cultures and ideologies at play within different orders.

I come from the Force Academy, where we cover various aspects of the Force, including Jedi. We tend towards Jedi Realism, however, but that doesn't mean we don't include Jediists. The Light Aspect actually has a diversity of backgrounds and practices in its membership.

They are another group of Jedi, in no way superior, inferior, or a parody of this one. They're just different. ;p

I dunno, I reckon Daniel Jones' group is pretty heckin' inferior.

Jediists follow the Jedi Path as a religion. It's a faith-based practice.

Jedi Realists follow the path as a philosophy.

I never understood why jedi realists welcomed Jones and co after they made a mockery of us !


Jediism is more dogmatic.
Jedi realism is more open to interpretation, with most followers using it as a top-up over an existing religion.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.
