Agnosticism and Atheism are not religions Wink

I know, but it saved me time to just include them with the other religions. I'm actually an atheist myself.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

At least we can all agree that The Great Rao is real. We have proof that Red Suns do exist Cheesy

All hail the Red Giants!  :wink:

I'm exactly like an atheist, except I believe in God and grace and stuff... Smiley

Nevertheless, I think that putting too much specific religion in Superman is a mistake, as he's a kind of character that everyone can be inspired by. This wouldn't be the case if he was running around trying to save everyone from the pit of Hell all the time (though it worked out alright in Miracle Monday) or if we had stories like "Superman's Jihad for President Kennedy."

On the other hand, one of the best stories I've read is the one from 1998, where Superman confronted the Holocaust and his Jewish origins directly. The idea of Superman being religious seems quite alright, but it shouldn't be a very specific or dogmatic religion.

RED DWARF...
I know what a red dwarf is.
Sure, thats the Jupiter Mining Corporation Vessel that 3rd Technician Dave Lister works on  as he tools around the universe with Hologram Arnold Rimmer ; Cat, the hyper evolutionized descendant of Dave's pet earth cat; and Kryten the hilarious android. They manage to spoof a universe of fiction and fact along with Better Than Life video games, cosmic guitars, time travel and parallel dimensions. From King Arthur, to the Wild wild West to JFK conspiracy theories the episodes vary wildly.
Where else can you see Kennedy, Lincoln and Ghandi fight Hitler and other baddies? Only on the BBC tv series "Red Dwarf".  

By the way the butler in the Lara Croft Tomb raider movies is the same actor that plays Arnold Rimmer.

But not long ago , I heard they are making an American Motion picture of this (maybe they did and I missed it) Does anbody else know?
